I hope George Zimmerman and his wife have not had any kids yet

After reading some of that transcript - that's a gene pool that should never be opened!

1. Bigotry is learned. Ignorance can be cured. We're talking the former here.

2. I grew up in Perry County and I know all about that

I can't imagine living a life filled with such hatred

4. My late FIL grew up in NW PA and was a "bigot" until he visited my soon-to-be wife in SC.

 

She was teaching kindergarten there in a very rural area. He had been an art teacher and gave an art lesson to her class. At one point it dawned on him that all of the children were black. That cured his ignorance. In sharp contrast, the only white child in her class only showed up about every three days because, as his grandmother so eloquently put it, "he's afraid of the black children." Gee. I WONDER where that "fear" came from.

3. As often as not, kids learn how NOT to behave from those around them.
