Yo Lester ... I guess George was only guilty of playing the odds.....While Trayvon was guilty of "socio-economics (i.e., inner-city poverty), single-parent households, "ghetto" culture etc,"
What is the point you attempt to make with black homicide stats? That it was reasonable for George Zimmerman to kill a young man because statistics and his skin color prove d he was a threat deserving to be followed and confronted ?
There was black-on-black crime in the 1950s, when Emmett Till was murdered, and in the 1960s, when 3 civil rights workers were killed.And buried in an earth dam. There was black-on-black crime throughout the early years of the century -a time during which black men were hanged, mutilated, and burned for sport. I think Billy Holiday sang a song about it..... If I recall it wasn't along the lines of "It ain't easy being Green". More than a few of these occurred because of a widely held belief in society that black people were violent by nature (seems the case now) using the same black on black crime stats.
