    Are Conservatives Really This Ignorant About Racism?

    Are Conservatives Really This Ignorant About Racism?

    Krauthammer: For all those that want to make this into a racial incident, and example of racial prejudice, answer this, where was the racial taint in those hours and hours of that trial, where was the bias and what parts of the trial were not fair because the victim was African American?

    The "racial taint", as he puts it, was in the actions of George Zimmerman. My #$%$ God, he profiled him, followed him, instigated a confrontation and then killed him. The heated reaction all across America is related to the decades of racial abuse African Americans have suffered throughout American history. Prosecutors tried a bad case and didn't put in many things that might have helped, but when there really aren't any witnesses to the event, it was a hard case to make. Also, by looking at crime and prison data, you see that blacks are more likely to be convicted of crimes than whites.

    Krauthammer and his cronies refuse to understand why the NY Daily News and others are relating this crime to past hate crimes. Because it's related to racism!
