Trayvon Martin’s verdict is lighting up the social media – Child-killer goes free

Just what most black people and visible minorities feared, the decision came back that Zimmerman killed the child in self-defence. Could anyone try to imagine if Trayvon was a white child and a big black man shot him in self defence and people even the jury buying that? I don’t think so. The problem with blacks in America is that they are carrying that chain of stereotype around their necks. People do not see them but they see all the learned qualities they expect of a black person. Even if Trayvon was being belligerent to Zimmerman that night, was killing him the only way out for this big burly guy? If he is such a flipping scaredy cat what the hell was he doing guarding the neighbourhood? This makes me want to laugh but I cry inside for the folks who loved Travyvon. Something is not right when it is okay for someone to shoot to kill a child even when the police advised him not to follow the child. I don’t know how I feel, I’m not mad, sad yes but very discouraged at this verdict,
Zimmerman will have to live with his conscience for the rest of his life. He will always be known as a child killer. People kill too easily these days. People kill women, children and black people too easily these days. Karma is the final equalizer.
