Racism in America – A Race-Based Witchhunt

I admit I have not paid much attention to the Zimmerman trial. This event occurred in Florida, not in Texas. But we have a system throughout our nation by which we judge the guilty and exonerate the non-guilty. And now this system is being thwarted by partisans, which bodes ill for the nation.

Despite the Zimmerman verdict, many communities have been stirred up based on the topic of race—the convenient default mechanism used so cavalierly when a verdict doesn’t to their way. Regardless that our justice system did its job and found Zimmerman not guilty, some Americans are not satisfied. They want are out for blood in a race-based witchhunt. It seems that race-baiters are compelled to create divisions between different populations of Americans and are intent on ignoring the decision of a fully informed jury.
