Trayvon supporters should be consistent

Success - Article sent! close

Apparently a pretty obvious acquittal based on the facts of the case in the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman murder trial is not acceptable to a lot folks including Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Congresswomen Maxine Waters and Corrine Brown, and many in the national media. This entire trial is just another example of why race relations in this country continue to deteriorate. How come we have not a peep out of Jesse and Al and the national media on the murder of a 13-month-old white baby in Brunswick, Ga., where two black teenagers shot the baby in the face and wounded his mother? Where is the outrage?
