There are NO winners in the Zimmerman trial. Both sides are suffering. But where was the Hispanic community support?
Personally, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson should be working to end black on black crime. Where are their raucous cries on black children being shot by other blacks?
It is past time for the black caucus to step on to the plate!
Finally, if laws are wrong then we need to explore changing them, but Zimmerman’s defense wasn’t based on the “stand your ground.” The jury has spoken. Move on. Start real communication not rantings and ravings!
