I think that this event is a travesty. However, what I don't understand is why the pictures are not current age for the Martin boy. Also it's obvious that both individuals are of mixed race and the media is stirring it up for ratings. I have been shown a current picture and told that the deceased was not even allowed to live at home at time if his demose

The shame is that it happened at all. We know things are not as portrayed by the media or by the marches. I watched the whole trial and thought the verdict would have been different. If Zimmerman had done what the police told him it never would have happened. If Martin had just continued to his destination it never would have happened. Lots of IF's that can't be changed. The world we live in is not a fair place to anyone race. We all must do our best to try to live with one another under...

It just doesn't seem to be allowed by those that want to portray race as a problem. Take a good look at your self and be sure your not part of the problem.

Brother Mason, the message in your book, "It's OK to leave the Plantation," is needed today, more than most days. I have studied most cultural groups, and I find that the same message could be adapted to other groups of immigrants, as they have left their home country, only to set up the same culture here. Places like "Little Tokyo," Little Italy," "Chinatown," and others, could be substituted for the plantation. Many of these people never even learn English. Rather than add to the...

Rather than add to the Melting Pot, that is America, by assimilating, these people demand special privileges, and add nothing. As an American Male Black, how do you feel about Obama playing "The Race Card," to divide America, when he is less than 50% any one Race. Between Obama's government and the Media we need more people, like you, to speak up and help unite America.

The jury had a job to do and they did it, lets allow it to stand at that.

Sorry not done. Demose should be demise. Anyway the whole thing is terrible. But it seems that there much being gained in the way of notoriety and monetary rewards by those that keep this going. The worst was to have the president go before the public and give his opinion. He was elected to serve the WHOLE country and he should have kept his opinion to himself and abided by the court system. If this goes further then I would like to know why it didn't when O. J. Simpson was found not guilty....

If this goes further then I would like to know why it didn't when O. J. Simpson was found not guilty. I see no difference and I didn't see the president of our country sharing opinions then. I guess there is a different code of ethics practiced today. As I said this was a terrible thing for life to be lost but I think there is more that the public hasn't been told.
