Injustice Still A Big Problem
As an African-American, I can somewhat feel the pain that the Trayvon Martin family feels of the injustice of the judicial system. We as Americans need to rely on and trust in the fairness of the judicial system, but when we are thrown under the wheels of injustice, it hurts. We must also realize what some may relate to asGeorge Zimmermans on our police forces, in our schools, in our neighborhoods and and in in our court rooms.
Recently a case came before what I consider a George Zimmerman as judge. The judge actually awarded a wealthy caucasian man a substantial monetary judgment against a hard-working, struggling African-American small businessman without any physical evidence of damages. The wealthy man stated that he had no proof or photos of the damages, (pretty much just his word). The judge stated “That’s OK.” The judge agreed that the wealthy man was entitled to prevent the African- American from entering his own property. Then the judge took nearly every hard-earned penny the African-American had worked for and awarded it to the wealthy caucasian man. That’s what “George Zimmermans” do when they have power in their hands.
The good thing about it is the African-American got to live to tell his side of the story, Trayvon didn’t. (Hope you are listening, Anonymous).
