    Mr. Kaplan is right that the Zimmerman case was a reflection of deep-seated racism in America.  I would argue that it is reflective of something else, as well.  In this materialistic society, property rights are elevated to a position grander than respect for human life.  That, to me, is a horrific statement of American values.

      was always so here in America. We became an acquisitive and material society from the minute the explorers stepped on the shores and drooled over the vast stretches of "free" land. The easy garnering of acreage and the defense of that land set an attitude that we still see in the killing of youth in fear of losing stuff.  sucks to be us.
