Can we find middle ground in the Zimmerman trial?

WinlockJuly 22, 2013 

The verdict in the George Zimmerman trial reminds us of the stark differences in perception between black Americans and the majority of the rest us.

One sees justice in this case as an acquittal based upon the evidence presented at trial. The other views this acquittal through a prism of historical inequality and the evidence presented by the left-wing media. The truth, as we all know, is somewhere in the middle.

Heartfelt condolences to the Martin family. May we all take a moment and examine the other side’s beliefs to determine if we can find some middle ground to move forward on.
