The George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin trial injected the race card into our public square. The question is: How did this happen? It came from several areas. Some in the media identified George as a “white” Hispanic instead of an Hispanic American. Who used a racist term like a “creepy a-- cracker?”

How many “reverends” came from New York and Chicago to declare this a racial event? George Zimmerman served as a mentor to black children. Again, the question is: “Who is racist?”
