George Zimmerman is called the most hated man in America, but the peoples’ anger is misplaced. Zimmerman murdered out of hatred for what Trayvon represented to him. People would have been satisfied if Zimmerman was convicted for murdering Trayvon Martin. They would believe justice has been served. However, the Zimmerman case was not dealt with justly since law enforcers covered up the murder of Trayvon Martin, there is a murderer walking around the streets freely and a murdered innocent teenager, Trayvon Martin, lying six feet under because of him!
Institutional racism is the cause for this situation. This is where the outrage belongs. Use your outrage to end institutional racism that allowed Zimmerman to walk free so that no other murderers can walk away freely. Unfortunately, we will always have murderers who murder for various reasons. We cannot stop this. However, we can stop those who protect them because such people have to answer to the American citizens. There are police, judges, and prosecutors who are racist against black people and will protect a non-black person despite that person being guilty. They will show preferential treatment to the non-black person. As long as such people keep their jobs and are not held accountable for this injustice, they will continue to uphold institutional racism. This is where my outrage lies.
Law enforcers covered up George Zimmerman’s first degree murder of Trayvon Martin. They saw through Zimmerman’s lies but protected him anyway. They had the facts and evidence, but they withheld it. They lied to you! They betrayed your trust in the criminal justice system. They betrayed you! This is where the outrage belongs. See Trayvon’s Horrific Last Night Alive
These law enforcers continue to have the power and authority to determine the fate of more black males more than Zimmerman ever could. The criminal justice system can not be trusted when it comes to black males. Just like we want the bad guys off the street, we want the bad prosecutors, judges, and police locked up who put the bad guys back on the streets!
It is because of institutional racism that black people see that there is no justice for their children and thus nearly panic each time their black children leaves the house. We do not have to continue to live in fear.
