    Racism is Killing America

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     DaElmersBack is outraged over what happened to Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teen who was shot and killed last month while walking home in Florida. 'When I say race is killing America, I mean in a literal form. It's racist. It's a pun in itself. Racism kills,' he said. DaElmersBack listened to the 911 tapes and was stunned by what he heard. 'I just picture him running. ... Just to hear the kid on the tape screaming for help and then the shot and silence,' was shocking, he said.
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    Shooting Trayvon Martin in Florida, just for the color of his skin is an Outrage! When will America wake up and see the inside, not out? When will George Zimmerman be arrested for killing this innocent young man?

     

    After all the news videos and stories showing what really happened, this guard is still walking free? He can NOT claim it was his life that was in danger, most people holding a gun doesn't feel scared. To be honest, if you are armed and scared, YOU are the dangerous one. Police even told him NOT to follow him, but he choose to do it anyway.

     

    Can you imagine walking in this boys shoes? Seeing a man get out of his car with a GUN.. then chasing after you? My heart goes out to his family after hearing him scream for help in the 911 calls. After the shot, it goes silent..

     

    Racism or Not, Murder IS Murder.. Arrest Him!
