Response to Spoken like a true neanderthal.
Try to answer these questions as honestly (to yourself) as possible. If Zimmerman were a black man, and shot this black kid under the exact same circumstances, do you think we'd be talking about this right now? Do you think anyone would be holding rallies and marches? Do you think Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton would be commenting about it? Do you think the New Black Panthers would be mobilizing in response to it? The answer to all of the above is simply "no". As much as you may want to, you cannot separate race from the situation that is going on in response to this incident.
This has nothing to do with my attitude or your attitude, or being progressive versus being a neanderthal, it is simply the reality of the world in which we live.
