Justice in the Zimmerman Trial Challenged by Black Community

Now Barack Obama has ineffectually chimed in on the acquittal of George Zimmerman, implying that justice was not done in the criminal trial, despite overwhelming evidence that Zimmerman was physically assaulted by Trayvon Martin. In other words, Barack Obama is politicizing a legitimate trial and jury verdict in order to FURTHER divide America.

The Judicial System acquitted Zimmerman because the preponderance of evidence demonstrated that he DID NOT commit homicide in any degree. Rather, the preponderance of evidence demonstrated that Zimmerman was, indeed, attacked by Trayvon Martin, a six-foot-tall football player suspended from school for possession of a controlled substance, and that Zimmerman acted within Florida law when he defended himself with lethal force. The evidence amply demonstrated that the prosecution's case was more than weak, it was UNFOUNDED.

The prosecution was driven primarily by racial bias.

Last week, black Hollywood actor Lance Gross penned an open letter to George Zimmerman in which Gross ominously predicted: "For the rest of your life you are now going to feel what its like to be a black man in America." This quote was picked up and echoed by many in the black community, implying that Zimmerman would never again feel safe in public.

Of course, nobody in the black community carried the sentiment to its logical conclusion — If George Zimmerman now knows what it's like to live in fear, presumably like a black man, then the black community must now know what it feels like to be the KKK demanding lynch mob justice.

What goes around comes around.
