Letter of the Day

A question we should consider

When Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman met, suppose the following conversation had taken place: Martin: Are you following me for some reason? Zimmerman: I'm the neighborhood watch officer. There have been a lot of break-ins around here lately, and I haven't seen you around here before. Martin: Yeah, I'm just here with my father; he's visiting with his girlfriend in that apartment over there.
Zimmerman: Oh, that's OK. Been watching the game on TV? Martin: Yeah. Zimmerman: Well, take care - get out of the rain. Martin: Yeah, you, too. The question that our educational system, all of the demonstrators, attorneys, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and, yes, Mr. And Mrs. Martin, need to ask themselves is: Why didn't this conversation take place?
