I haven't written about the events in Florida. It is sad when a young person dies. The bigger problem in the US ( and faced it even in parts of Canada) for young blacks is black on black crime. I am not sure what exactly happened in Florida. It is pretty disheartening to read the many tweets calling for the lynching of the shooter without a trial. Perhaps people should remember the Billy Holiday song. I am going to wait before making up my mind. Rex understands. barack and the race hucksters shorten and jackson, just make the racial divide worse. The most important thing to note is that the story is incomplete. The full range of facts is not available, the investigation is not over and there are contradictions between the various accounts. Yet that did not stop the President of the United States from making his opinion known, albeit in an indirect way. "I can only imagine what these parents are going through," Barack Obama told reporters. "When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids, and I think every parent in American should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this."
