I've written about the Trayvon Martin affair before. More and more reports are indicating that perhaps he wasn't as 'pure-as-the-driven-snow' as the mass media and racial (racist?) activists have portrayed him, and that Mr. Zimmerman might have had genuine cause to defend himself. I guess we'll have to wait and see what the grand jury has to say about it.
In the meantime, this cartoon (reproduced here by kind permission of the author) sums up very well the partisanship and racial prejudice being displayed over the incident.
(The cartoon refers to this horrific incident in Kansas City.)
Another perspective on President Obama's 'concern' is provided by cartoonist Gary McCoy:
As Les Jones points out, there have been examples of the mainstream media deliberately 'editing' the transcript of Mr. Zimmerman's call to 911 in order to falsely imply that he's racist. Hmm . . . I wonder why I haven't heard or read about correspondents mentioning Tawana Brawley while reporting on Al Sharpton's diatribes about Mr. Zimmerman?
