VERDICT: What would you have done?

Let’s suppose you’re walking alone, at night, in a deserted neighborhood. Suddenly, you realize someone is following you. What do you do? You can run away and possibly be attacked from behind. Or, you can turn around and confront the stalker. If you confront and fisticuffs then follow, who would you say started it?

Suppose George Zimmerman had been black and Trayvon Martin white. Do you think a black Zimmerman would have gotten away with shooting a white Martin? And, an all-white jury! I don’t blame the black community for being furious. I am too. I’m white.
