One thing, and it’s more than slightly important, Zimmerman isn’t White, he’s Hispanic. But that doesn’t fit the agenda either.

“On Friday night, a young African-American teenager, Trayvon Martin, was shot to death in Orlando by a neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman. The media immediately portrayed the death as a case of white on black racism. CBS News, on its Crimesider website, immediately called Zimmerman a “white neighborhood watch volunteer.” Martin’s parents accused the police of racism for not arresting Zimmerman.

There’s only one problem: Zimmerman is Hispanic. Within a few hours of its original report, CBS News was calling Zimmerman a mere “neighborhood watch captain,” without the racial modifier, quoting Zimmerman’s father to the effect that his son is Hispanic.

Zimmerman’s race was already well known by the time CBS News wrote its original story – Zimmerman’s father wrote to the Orlando Sentinel and explained last week that his son is Hispanic because his mother was Latino.”

I live not far from where this fiasco took place. As soon as I saw Al Sharpton - well, no need to wonder anymore, folks! This guy has an agenda wherever he goes. Too bad the sincere people (Trayvon's family and friends) can't see what's happening here. Sharpton, et al., have hijacked the memory of this young man and run with it. Nothing like a good crisis!!!

"Why are these deaths being ignored?"
Could it be because the Reverends Al and Jesse can't be everywhere?

Time for a dialogue of truth.

Trayvon Martin's death is a tragedy. But is his death any more a tragedy than the countless lives lost in Chicago and elsewhere?
