Right? So why would anyone say one is being racist for calling it what is is? At least that's what I sort of think is being said by some here.
Race did play a role in the Zimmerman incident especially at the start of the process when he did racially profile the victim.
If T had been white ,the all sad chain of events would not have happened..
You can argue that point ad vitam eternam but it is a fact .
The other case is more puzzling with a black teen ranting about killing white guys and having during the incident (euphemism) a white accomplice...
In that story too, an element of racial hate is to be taken into account.
All these incidents are based on complicated stimuli ,emotions and reactions creating unpredictable and tragic chains of events.
Trying to coldly analizing them through reason and analytical decision making processes is just futile.
It is why they're so fascinating...
