As with many of the published articles on the killing of Trayvon Martin, the reader comments prove more elucidating than the article itself. Sorry LZ, but we all knew that black people distrust the police, and a long litany of similar attacks indicate why. The responses would arguably make one wonder if there is not a broader group of Americans black people should distrust.
These responder diatribes rarely, if not never, state how the often vicious acts visited upon blacks by the police, and now citizen surrogates is consistent with the treatment that other Americans receive. No, instead you hear constant excuses for hateful, and in many cases, unconstitutional actions heaped upon African Americans, that harken back to the days of Jim Crow and beyond.
