Man I feel you. I have black and white friends. I am as close to a colorblind person as you will come across. Everyman to me is judged by the quality
of their character and their integrity. I don't care if you are purple. However I had a conversation (not as blown apart as yours but similar) with a
black man I know.
In no time I realized I had crossed an invisible line. He politely and kindly told me that this was a sensitive subject and that he would not discuss
it at work. On retrospect I agreed and later apologized for putting him on the spot. I empathized with the fact that self defense did not work out
here. They upon doing some digging I discovered a map of where both parties were at a given time...
Zimmerman broke off contact when the 911 op told him to. Went about his business. Travon then walked a couple blocks up the road and returned, and
re-started this confrontation. At this point HE is responsible and culpable for the end result. Two days before this he posted pics of himself
flipping the bird and showing pictures of his pot stash. He was no little kid as portrayed by the media. The media holds a HUGE hand in the race riots
and beatings that have ensued over this.
The mainstream media should be mortally ashamed of themselves. They have whipped this into a situation that none of us will come out of untouched. I
managed to salvage my relationship with my friend by mainly shutting up and not trying to educate him on this subject. He still holds his bias
however. Can we all do this???
I think not...This whole media fiasco is a freakin shame on us as a whole. How many of us are intelligent enough to realize the manipulation and
revolt from it? This case will be a turning point for the negative for this country, because most are not intelligent enough to dig a little deeper
than the mainstream media.
This basic Sun Tzu. Divide and conquer and they have been damn good at dividing us. God help us through this time.
Pray for us, cuz this is a mess...
