I don't know about you but I am sick and freaking tired of hearing about the Treyvon Martin and George Zimmerman tragedy that occurred in Sanford, Florida. I am absolutely appalled at the behavior of folks protesting this unfortunate event and making it a racial situation. There are elected officials, professional athletes, and other media hungry zealots jumping on the race/hate crime bandwagon and wearing their hoodies in protest... What a bunch of ignorant morons.

This incident is NOT about race people, it's about poor judgement and quite frankly, it isn't real clear exactly who had the worse judgement, Martin or Zimmerman. Either way, the one thing we do know is a human life was lost. A "colorless" spirit  was taken from his family too soon and that is unfortunate. What's worse is the likes of Reverend Al Sharpton and Reverend Jesse Jackson getting involved and making it into something it never was. You can bet your sweet ass anytime these two knuckleheads get involved it's going to be a circus.

We now have the family of Treyvon Martin in DC meeting with Democrats to share their experience and help further legislation on racial profiling. The "white" police chief in Sanford resigned and has been replaced by an appointed "African American"... Oh, that's sure to solve the problem. My head is spinning from this insanity.

Color should be irrelevant here. America is RED, WHITE, and BLUE. It's not black, white, or any other color of the rainbow. Slavery ended decades ago and most folks who complain about their persecution because of race really have no idea what that really looks like. In fact it's much more likely that any persecution they have suffered is because of their ignorance or misplaced sense of entitlement. I spent many years as a law enforcement officer working the streets and I can tell you without any doubt that stupid comes in all colors and is present in all levels of society.
It's time we, the American public comprised of all colors and ethnic backgrounds stood up and put an end to this nonsense. We cannot stand by and allow our judicial and political systems to be influenced by the squeaky wheel.

Enjoy the Ride...

Amen, I had nearly the same conversation earlier today. The whole situation is a tragedy being made worse by hurting, hating and ugly individuals working the masses into a frenzy. Thank you for writing what I was thinking. We all need a little love.
