The good news is George Zimmerman is finally going to be charged for shooting Trayvon Martin, according to The Washington Post.
Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as this afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.
It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face.
The bad news is America has shown its ass during this entire debacle, and a significant portion of the country is still very racist in 2012.
Case in point
DETROIT -Elaine Bonner says she can’t believe.
“I feel violated by it,” she said.
Bonner was driving westbound on Interstate 94 near Addison going into Dearborn at about 1 a.m. when she saw the sign.
An MDOT highway message board was lit up for all to see: “Trayvon A N*****.”
MDOT spokesperson Rob Morosi says its clear someone broke into the sign’s operating system and had enough knowledge to be able to delete the traffic message and put up their own offensive message about the Florida teen shot who was killed by a neighborhood watch captain. The Trayvon Martin case has inflamed feelings of racial discrimination nationwide.
America never has been and never will be a “post-racial” country, but recent events suggest racism is still a much bigger problem than we give it credit for
If hate were a currency, we could close the deficit tomorrow.
