Mistick's omissions II
To Joseph Sabino Mistick: I'm puzzled by your column “After Zimmerman's acquittal, the broader tragedy.” Your opinion lends itself to the bandwagon of injustice, but in reality there is the continuing racism against whites. The outcry that many have bought into is this media circus for revenge.
Little or nothing is said of the injuries sustained by George Zimmerman. Were they self-inflicted?
You speak of the black homicide rate but fail to identify that it is largely perpetrated by blacks on blacks. Nothing said of this? Check the Chicago statistics.
As an attorney, you lack the objectivity of your profession. You are guilty of more opinion than facts. You fuel the fires of hate and lack knowledge of a culture that is burning out of control.
Lord have mercy on this nation!
TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
