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

    If you don’t want to be treated like a criminal, don’t dress and act like one.

    It is tragic that a young life ended in this way. What is more tragic is the division and anger this incident has created. It is time to reflect and forgive. We don’t need opportunitists enflaming public sentiment for their own purposes. We forgive because Christ forgave us first. Rest in peace Trayvon.

    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.

    We do need to make peace with everyone.

    @Thriller87

    It is bad when you are judged by your skin color and not the content of your character.

    But it was all about race. It has been scrubbed from the narrative.
