      especially like this....

      It is not that "those people" identify with Zimmerman or feel he acted right, but that they cannot envision a world where the Trayvon Martins are not thugs.

      In a heartbeat, I was hit with a litany of cases of black on black violence, or black on white violence. And then stone cold silence when I went through those examples and asked for which of them were there no arrests, or no trials, or no guilty verdict.

      ....and certainly NOT an ALL-Black jury.
