Re: “Tears, anger nationwide after verdict in Florida” (TNT, 7-15).
Is there a reason that The News Tribune continues to foster and encourage a bias towards racial inequality? As a Christian man and someone of Native American heritage, I have experienced my share of racial tension.
Today’s world is so much different from what I experienced as a child in the South. To my joy, I see many mixed-race couples enjoying the freedoms that were fought for in past generations. Unfortunately, the views issuing forth from today’s media seem to be fanning the flames of hatred.
Both men made mistakes that night. Both men were minorities. George Zimmerman is a Hispanic and Trayvon Martin was African-American. Why do you continue to perpetuate the idea that this was a black vs. white issue? Why do you continue to focus on race when you should be concerned with the pain that both familys are feeling today?
