Sanford And Son Revisited

The case of Trayvon Martin has taken a new turn today. George Zimmerman who says he shot the 17 year old in self defense, was arrested, and charged with 2nd degree murder charge. This case has been a hotspot for race relations in Obama’s America. This story continues to overshadow the problems of the economy, the run for president, even the rising cost of gas. Is this a story about race? Sadly the answer is yes. Two families will suffer a loss when this over, Once again the American people and their problems related to race will be put on display for the whole world to see. We will all see what happens to the defendant, but what lessons will we learn about people who are different from us but call themselves Americans. How we feel about the outcome of this case will say a lot about each of us as citizens of this county.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
