Missed Opportunity

While I strongly agree with the rule of law, and believe that the media surrounding Zimmerman has made an unfortunate situation worse, The NAACP does do a lot for the community It serves and that community does need help. For the sake of being short, In my opinion the NAACP and groups like it are missing a great opportunity to transform the argument away from the Zimmerman issue and get people to come together and get work done on the issue of black on black crime. Tell those that throw it up as a defense to help you solve it then, and tell those angry about martin and the fact that the crime statistics are the to get up and make sure their communities defy the stereo types rather than reinforce them.
