So, while everyone last week claimed to be an activist by supporting this whole Kony 2012 campaign (don't even get me started on that)....I was focused on why a white man hasn't been arrested for a hate crime in Florida. I posted the article on Facebook and NO ONE cared. This white man, who was the neighborhood watch captain, saw a black kid walking home and just assumed because he was black that he was up to trouble. He called 911, who advised him to wait for police to arrive. Instead of doing so, he got out of the car and shot the kid in cold blood. No one really knows what transpired to lead to him shooting the kid, but he claims self-defense. This is a joke. He was armed and in his car...he had no reason to feel threatened by a 17 year old walking home from the gas station, armed with nothing more than a can of iced tea and a bag of skittles. The police have no arrested him, claiming that he has a good record. Who the hell cares? So, because I've never committed any crimes before today that means that I can shoot a child for NO reason and go free? The fact that this issue has flown relatively under the radar is disgusting.  THIS WAS A CHILD!!!!  If someone shot my son and wasn't arrested, I don't even know what I would do. If this was a black man who shot a white child, then this would be a totally different scenario. It is likely the black man would be immediately put in jail, held without bail, and presumably sentenced to death. I urge each and everyone of you to get involved with this - call the police and tell them you are outraged, sign the petition to arrest George Zimmerman, share the is the link (
