In this column, Tom Sowell unfairly attacks race baiters and prejudice hustlers.
Tom Sowell uses reason and historical fact to claim that Saint Trayvon might still be alive if he did not dress like a common criminal. Everyone knows this is racissississt.
How dare he? Mike Nifong and Kee McFarlane should condemn him immediately.
Much has been made of the fact that the teenager was unarmed. The only time I have ever pointed a loaded gun at a human being, I had no idea whether he was armed or not. All I knew was that I could hear his footsteps sneaking up behind me at night.
Fortunately for both of us, he froze in his tracks when I pointed a gun at him. If he had made a false move, I would have shot him. And if it had turned out later that he was unarmed, I would not have lost a moment's sleep over it.
You know that someone was unarmed only after it is all over. If he attacks, you have to shoot, if only to keep the attacker from getting your gun.
Like it, lump it, love it or leave it, people judge you by appearance.
If you dress like a gangsta do not be surprised when you are treated like one.
Yeah, OK. It ain't fair, yada yada yada. But it is what it is.
