The Tragedy of Trayvon Martin

When are we going to realize for some, racism is a thriving "business" in the United States. Taking full advantage of our diverse ethnicity, racist trade on our differences to promote dissension,ferment biases and prejudices for their financial, social and/or political gain! What purpose do organizations of race or color membership specificity have, other than to  promote separation, division; gain rewards in that separation and division?And who gets the most ink, the most media network attention, the most notoriety? The most radical of course! I'm not saying the oppressed should not unite to be better seen and heard in light of blatant injustice, but not trumped up opportunities to propagandize, to foster unrest and violence for the expressed purpose of perpetuating unrest and violence, for perpetuating bigotry and prejudices for their own gain. Who does that? We all know who; while we for the most part stand silent for fear of being labeled racist our selves  Odd they have no fear of being so labeled. Why is it we shuffle our feet, divert our eyes, fall silent in awkwardness? Most of us, certainly most of our parents before us had/have experienced prejudices for one reason or another in our collective life times, but here we are, as a whole none the worst for wear. We have survived, some even thrived on the adversity-, of course others have fallen by the wayside, but as American's we have moved on. We don't need to hear a constant din of past  social injustices even atrocities; of present and future accommodations to remind us of what we have overcome. Shame on those who want to make the tragic death of a teenager a race issue when it was not.You so called religious and government leaders alike who misrepresented the circumstances to fan the flames of racial unrest are despicable. You've done it before and no doubt, if afforded the opportunity will do it again. You have no scrupulous, no moral compass!
