President Obama accurately stated what it is still like in many areas to be walking or driving while either black or brown in this country. Ask a 15th generation “American” of Mexican decent in Phoenix, or a black man in many big cities, or even small communities in America, especially “middle America”.
I’m a white guy with black and brown friends over the years, who did indeed see prejudice. I also support equal opportunity, but have seen many “bad things” happen under a very badly managed “affirmative action” mentality.(Women, and racial groups where incompetence hasn’t been a barrier.) The point is, with true equality, well, we CAN do a lot better!
As, again Zimmerman, some of the stories are really weird as his own BROTHER right after the story hit declared that at best, his brother George “didn’t like” (understatement) “black people”. HIs history of calls to police supports this, as all his calls were “suspicious types”, that weren’t HIS type!
