    Hmm, no one left to comment on the strip after yesterday. So sad.

    My son was dressed in his work uniform and people crossed the street to get away from him like he had a disease. No sagging pants, no hoodie, no cap, no suspicious behavior whatsoever. Very good kid, graduated high school with college credit, going to college on a scholarship. What’s their excuse?

    Just yesterday coming to work on the bus I sat in my security uniform next to an older white lady she immediately clutched her purse as if I wanted to steal it then she moved seats the first chance she got. So please tell me what was wrong with my clothes to make me look suspicious?

    Should people be tried in the media?
    It was the Media that painted GZ as racial profiling. NBC is being sued and they fired 3 people for manipulating the 911 tapes.
    The 911 operator asked about skin color and clothes GZ answered, but wasn’t actually sure of the skin color until TM came toward him and he got a better look – that was when he confirmed TM was a black male.
    What originally caught GZ’s eye was someone looking at homes in a suspicious manner – Does the fact TM had been caught at school with Burglary tools and women’s Jewelry ever come into peoples minds?

    What wise words in the comic strip above. Thank you, Mr. Bentley.

    What bothers me is this was never a matter of race.
    People like Mr Bentley or Mr Obama have made it a racial issue.
    This has done more divide than anything else.
    If it was a racial issue that would be one thing – it clearly was not.

    Even if the two individuals had been of the same race, what happened would still have been WRONG and TRAGIC.

    @Thriller87

    Maybe she would have clutched her purse no matter who sat beside her. I’ve had little old ladies do the same to me and I’m white. Could she have been trying to give you room? Did she move to a seat where she had more room?

    The ONLY people that made it a race issue are people like Mr Bentley that let themselves get conned by the media.
    Nothing was scrubbed read the 911 call transcript.

    GZ saw someone acting suspicious (TM had been caught with burglary tools at school) the 911 dispatcher was the one that asked about color and clothes.

    No one said that. Anyone can be racist. And like Kris1964 said the GZ/TM issue is a tragedy regardless of race.
