Media should seek out quality black leaders
Letter to editor

Editor, Our country has a legal jury system and the president of the United States, as well as the attorney general, are supposed to honor this jury by trial. Obama has not only blatantly ignored the facts and the jury’s decision of the Zimmerman/Martin case, but stupidly added fuel to the fire with his comments rather than calming the blacks. Holder, who should not be the attorney general since he has perjured himself, is out speaking of the Zimmerman/Martin case saying he pledges that the Justice Department would “continue to act in a manner that is consistent with the facts and the law in this investigation.” Excuse me, the jury has spoken.
I think the blacks drew a line in the sand ages ago when they formed the Congressional Black Caucus, the Black Panthers, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, black colleges and other racial baiting organization that seem to divide us all. They and Jessie Jackson, who is known for shaking down corporations for money, and Al Sharpton, who ruined a white man’s life with the lies of the Tawana Brawley case are but examples of the blacks capitalizing on black and white confrontations while raising children in an atmosphere of hate and untruth. A sad group for models for those growing up.
In the non-racial Zimmerman/Martin case, the blacks have been worked up to a frenzy, destroying, looking and injuring innocent people. This only makes the true leaders in the black community aware of how important education is, which is not displayed in these riotous gangs. When the jury in the O.J. Simpson case declared him innocent, the whites did not go berserk though they felt him guilty. There are many great black leaders in our country and it behooves our media to seek out their thoughts instead of promoting those who push hatred.
Let us see how all those black activists, Obama and Holder handle the case of Brandon Mackey, black, who senselessly shot William Franklin, a white firefighter, on the Isle of Hope.
