    I have seen some who said that they thought Zimmerman was just crazy, that the killing wasn't racially motivated.

    We need more awareness here, too... Kossacks (and for that matter, liberals/progressives/whatever) who think we don't or can't hold racial bias need to think again.

    We all harbor ideas buried deeply in our minds that are wrong-headed. It's part of being HUMAN.

    Whereas those on the right all too often embrace those wrong-headed ideas, we, on the left, should be willing to look at them, see what it is we're looking at, and then cast them aside.

    But you can't fix something if you aren't willing to acknowledge that it might just be broken.
