This is the best and most honest editorial I have read in the Sun-Gazette EVER!

Having lived in Alabama during the George Wallace days, I saw racism at its worst. Over the next 40 years, citizens did a great job working on the eradication of racism.

Then along came the beginning of the 2008 presidential campaign season......and from then until today, Dumbama has done nothing but spew racism." - USABorn

Please. The racism, in '08, was spawned by the White-Trash that DREADED the idea of some Black-dude movin' into the "big-house".

The White-Trash was under the impression he was expected to wait-in-line...until all the White-Trash were asked (and, turned-down) the opportunity to run for the Presidency. They're all assuming he'd jumped-in-line, ahead of them.

Live with it.

Ignoring the the cultural differences that played into the jury's decision does not negate those differences. The criminal justice system treats those of color in a different manner than those not of color. Look at the statistics and tell me that is not true.

If Traycon Martin had been a white kid walking that same neighborhood that same night, you can be George Zimmerman would not have stalked him with his vehicle, left that vehicle and then confronted him about what he was doing there. It just wouldn't have happened.

Tell me that if you are walking down any street in Williamsport and you see coming your way three or four young black men hooded down, that you would not cross the street, hold your bags a little bit tighter, and have your phone ready to call 911. If you say anything different you are lyihg to yourselves.

I believe the race baiters don't want to face the truth. It is inconvenient to look at the numbers of black crime, the destruction of the black family and the pervasive destructive behavior in the black community by the youth. It is hard to look at that and it is so easy to point the finger at whites and the govt and say that is why we are in this mess. It is more difficult to demand standards of decency, marriage, parenting, education and behavior from those who fall short. If you look at all racial groups, you will see that those individuals who have problems all fall into the same categories of poor behavior and decision making, it just seems that we are shown more from the black community than any other. So, when are those in these different racial groups going to start to demand better from their fellow citizens? Lots of poor people make it and those who don't but have good decision making and behavior see their children succeed, which is the ultimate goal.

I didn't hit "post comment!"

Then you have the brown nosing Eric holder who isn't worth diddly squat! The attorney general of the U.S., and he refuses to enforce our laws. He only twists and uses them in an effort to do Dumbama's bidding.

And there are many more hangers-on that will say and do anything Dumbama wants done.

Add to that a lamestream media, made up of PMSNBC, CNN, AMC, NBC, CBS, et al, and the liberal web sites, especially those backed by Soros.

There is just no end to those who gleefully help the Racist-in-Chief.

He sows divisiveness every chance he gets, which is every day!!!! He has set race relations back to the days of George Wallace.

He is helped and urged on by a man who dares call himself a minister of God. A fake with no training, "ordained" in his church at the age of 12.

Then he has Jesse Jackson, born to a girl in high school pregnant by her married neighbor. He was known as a liar, such as when he claimed MLK died in his arms, and was kicked out of MLK's organization. He also has an out-of-wedlock baby to his credit.
