Mistick's omissions I
In reference to Joseph Sabino Mistick's column “After Zimmerman's acquittal, the broader tragedy” (July 21 and TribLIVE.com): The broader tragedy is that Mistick submitted this piece of garbage without facts.
Mistick would have one believe that all blacks murdered in this nation were killed by people of European descent, i.e., white males. Nowhere in his column does he state that more than 70 percent of black males murdered in the nation are killed by other black males.
And Mistick continued the propaganda by stating that the “poorest neighborhoods are flooded with weapons, used again and again to commit crimes,” leaving the low-information voter to believe that racists are supplying the weapons. Nowhere does he state that the neighborhood thugs murdering their brothers are the same thugs bringing in the weapons.
One would believe Mistick is educated enough to know these facts but chose not to include them. Imagine the broader tragedy his students have to endure behind the closed doors of classrooms at Duquesne University. Mistick's column is a prime example of race-baiting.
