It is hard to believe the recent court decision in Florida in the Zimmerman case. It demonstrated to the world where the United States is in race relations.
The words in the Constitution “That all men are created equal, with certain unalienable rights,” rings hollow as is not really practiced in this country as of yet.
One would think after 350 years of slavery and another 100 years of legalized segregation, our country would be much further advanced in racial equality. We constantly attempt to establish democracies all over the world, but we really need to examine if we have a true democracy here in the United States and are we truly “the last best hope of the world.”
