If the liberal media had not deliberately put a racial face on that tragedy where there was none or reported the facts honestly, the ensuing outrage and hysteria could have been avoided.<quoted text>
The truth? As the largest racial group, whites commit the majority of crimes in America. In particular, whites are responsible for the vast majority of violent crimes. With respect to aggravated assault, whites led blacks 2-1 in arrests; in forcible-rape cases, whites led all racial and ethnic groups by more than 2-1. And in larceny theft, whites led blacks, again, more than 2-1.
Given this mathematical truth, would anyone encourage African Americans to begin shooting suspicious white males in their neighborhoods for fear that they'll be raped, assaulted or murdered? Perhaps George Zimmerman's defenders should answer that question. If African Americans were to act as irrationally as Zimmerman did, would any rationale suffice to avoid arrest?
The prosecution initially turned down the case because there was no evidence of a racially motivated murder. Trayvon fit the profile of the perpetrators of crime in that area and was simply suspect. But Trayvon was the attacker. The state made the prosecution try the case.
It's time we looked at the real problem. How we have failed our younger generation.
