What has happened to our country?
I'm sick to my stomach over all the racist acts of hatred. I am not a racist or bigot but I've about had it with race baiting starting with our government leaders, moving on to the likes of Rev. Al Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson, filtering on down to the Hollywood elite and ending up on the streets of our cities.
Trayvon Martin's death was sad and needless. However, I honestly believe that George Zimmerman's actions were in self-defense.
Instead of our leaders, black and white, working to bring all races together, they used Martin's death to promote their agendas and line their pockets.
Calling Zimmerman a "white Hispanic" because he had one white parent is like calling President Obama a "white black"; he had a white mother although you never hear about that.
Today, I was totally blown away by news of a young white baseball player in Oklahoma who was murdered by three teens who were "bored" and yes, race was a factor.
One of these thugs tweeted that he hated 90 percent of all white people.
Is he a racist? Where is the outcry; no outrage?
I haven't heard a peep from our one-sided lamestream media.
Maybe we should all start wearing baseball caps in protest of this despicable act?
Hoodies seemed to be the dress code for protesting Trayvon Martin's death.
Even a member of Congress wore a hoodie while standing at the podium spouting offensive nonsense regarding the Zimmerman case. Mr. Zimmerman was thrown to the wolves even before his stitches began to heal. Shame on America.
We sit idly by while our country is being taken over by radicals and as long as they don't bother us, we turn a blind eye.
What happened to that young man in Oklahoma should make every one of us shudder. No wonder Australia is calling for a boycott on visiting America.
It's not a safe place to visit or live in. Our government leaders only stoke the furnace in favor of winning votes. They could care less about anyone but themselves and that's on both sides of the aisle.
I used to take pride in my country; not anymore.
What kind of country allows such hatred to continue and grow?
People like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson make me ashamed to be called a Christian. God must be so ashamed of us all.
It's time we stand together and fight for what is right and not what is black or white.
