Out of all the black teenagers who’ve been shot and killed over the last two years, only one is lucrative enough to gain the Rev. Jackson’s notice.

Reminder: Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law had nothing to do with George Zimmerman’s defense. Martin had him pinned down and was beating his head into the sidewalk.
But when has the Rev. Jackson ever concerned himself with such details? The important thing is to prey on people’s emotions. Facts are secondary. They only get in the way when you’re turning people against each other to make a buck.
For all of George Zimmerman’s bumbling, stupid behavior ever since the shooting, he’s done far less damage to America than Jesse Jackson has. Discuss.
