It was Sam's comment about how their must be money at stake for Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to get involved. Sometimes, like when Jackson was crying at Obama's inauguration, the simplest explanation for someone's behavior is the best one. The Trayvon Martin case is horrifying, but for many African Americans it's just a particularly media-friendly incident of a reality that rarely gets attention.

I happen to know Al Sharpton, and I wouldn't be saying that if it weren't true.  Perhaps it was not fair to put Jesse Jackson in the same sentence, as I don't know him personally.  Tongue

As for me, I will defend 'innocent until proven guilty' in all cases.  Those who are convicting him right now without knowledge of all facts are completely wrong, regardless of whether they are black, white, Republican, Democratic, race-hustlers, baiters, master debaters or otherwise.
