    Struck me from the start that it took awhile for the racism to come oozing out from the cracks. At first, only the police were defending Zimmerman by giving him the okeedokee and sending him home, hiding Martin's cell phone and body, etc.

    But once the groundswell began to build for justice, out came the slime and lies and stereotyping and red herrings and hideous hateful comments. I fully expect it to get even more craven and sick.

    I hope the majority of our young people take a good look at this tragedy and what went into creating it, and choose open hearts and minds over racism and its culture of willful blindness and death.
