Well, we asked for more information, more facts, more evidence that Zimmerman was the victim of Martin’s beating, didn’t we?

There are still people today that just can’t understand why all the public outcry.
I’ve never referred to the hood on my jackets and coats before as a hoodie. Since it has been mentioned a lot in our nation’s discourse I’ve been compelled to write that I will not let anyone intimidate me into not wearing my hoodie on a jacket or coat that I’ve bought specifically for its use.
I will not give up wearing my hoodie on my jacket or coat.
Trayvon Martin’s (age 17) death have sprouted all sorts of twisted dialogue about the way he died, the way he lived, and, on the misfortune and defenseless George Zimmerman (age 28), who at the time was armed and in a car (the safest place he could have been, considering all things). Yet Mr. Zimmerman ended up being the guy on the ground yelling help (according to a witness), with a broken nose and a gash on the back of his head, and still able to be in possession of the gun that shot Martin. None of this makes good sense to me. I imagine that I’m not alone.
The left have propelled this tragedy to a level where the vigilante groups have a bounty out on Zimmerman’s head, dead or alive. Radio and TV talk show hosts on the right blames Martin’s death on his hoodie. It seems they are afraid the public outcry will cause the banning of guns.
Still, a young teen-ager is dead. A tragedy that could have been avoided.
I will not let anyone intimidate me into not wearing my hoodie. We’ve all worn them. Ever since our mom’s and dad’s wrapped our stinking butts up and laid us in a cradle.
STOP with the fear and intimidation, please!
I could write more on this but while I was typing this one out I came across readytochangenow‘s post here – “It’s not them – it’s you; how fear is destroying us”. This is a passionate post that ends with a proposal for change. Please take a few minutes to read it.

I wanted to
do write a post on this myself, but I found this article link much more in my line of thoughts. So I’ll point my dear readers to an important perspective, one which I share on this debate.
But let’s expand this debate further:
