  • Why not manslaughter?

    Why not manslaughter?
    We've heard a lot about George Zimmerman fearing for his life, which apparently justified his actions in the minds of the trial jury, but I haven't heard anyone talk about, or even suggest, that maybe Trayvon Martin also feared for his life and acted...
  • Sun aligns with race baiters in Zimmerman trial

    Sun aligns with race baiters in Zimmerman trial
    In The Sun's recent editorial regarding the acquittal of George Zimmerman ("No justice," July 16), deemed outrageous is the assertion by Mr. Zimmerman's defense team that he never would have been charged if he were black. Later in the editorial, however,...

    Answering the backlash to outrage over the Zimmerman verdict
    My fellow white people — many of us, maybe most of us — get really weird about the subject of race, especially when black people raise questions about the way they are treated. Reactions range from silence to white-hot vitriol to moderate...
  • After Trayvon, having 'the talk' with our son

    After Trayvon, having 'the talk' with our son
    An open letter to our 12-year-old son: When you were a little boy, whenever you started crying, we would put you in your car seat and take you for a drive through downtown Baltimore. We would play Sweet Honey in the Rock and sing out loud until you...

    Mothers' organization raises awareness about local crime
    Daphne Alston understands why so many people are outraged by the killing of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teen shot by a self-appointed neighborhood watchman. She just doesn't get why nobody seems to care about the deaths of many other unarmed...
  • Trayvon Martin and liberal leaders' selective outrage

    Trayvon Martin and liberal leaders' selective outrage
    Now that the George Zimmerman trial is history, I'd like to make a couple of comments. The entire episode was a horrible tragedy: a young man needlessly lost his life, a mother lost her son. While Mr. Zimmerman was found not guilty of criminal charges,...
  • Baltimore rally among several rallies nationwide to protest Zimmerman verdict

    Baltimore rally among several rallies nationwide to protest Zimmerman verdict
    As more than a hundred people gathered in the shade by the federal courthouse to protest the verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial, the Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant traced a line between the shooting in Florida and the violence that has claimed the...
  • Trayvon and Brandon: Why does society care about one black death but not thousands of others?

    Trayvon and Brandon: Why does society care about one black death but not thousands of others?
    The George Zimmerman verdict continues to reverberate across the nation, and the nation is coming to terms with the purported notion that we live in post-racial society. I didn't know Trayvon Martin. But nearly a month after the Florida teen was killed,...
  • Zimmerman's acquittal a travesty of justice

    Zimmerman's acquittal a travesty of justice
    George Zimmerman's acquittal was unjustified as self-defense ("Martin verdict protests continue," July 17). In Mr. Zimmerman's 911 call about Trayvon Martin, the dispatcher told him to stay in his car while police sped to the scene. He ignored this...
  • 'Common sense' and the Zimmerman verdict

    'Common sense' and the Zimmerman verdict
    Letter writer Jerome Shapiro seems to have a very confused picture of what common sense suggests in the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case ("Zimmerman jury ignored common sense," July 19). His common sense take would lead to the conclusion that Mr....
  • Evidence showed Trayvon Martin was the aggressor

    Evidence showed Trayvon Martin was the aggressor
    What many blacks and liberals will never publicly acknowledge is that Trayvon Martin's death was a consequence of his own criminal conduct ("'Life has got to be of some value,'" July 21). For a multitude of reasons, people make other people angry every...
  • Zimmerman was in the wrong

    Zimmerman was in the wrong
    The George Zimmerman verdict was appalling yet predictable given that the trial centered on the wrong-headed premise that what happened after the confrontation was key, not what led up to it ("Martin's parents speak; still seeking answers," July 19)....
