16. Maybe you can quote the exact sentence or sentences which confuses you?

I'll be happy to explain.

I do go out of my way to let minorities speak for themselves. (I happen to be one.) Sometimes, I am dismayed by their responses because I don't think they realize how their comments will be twisted. Like the Black woman who said something to the effect, look at me, I'm black, and I'm telling you that there were burglaries in the neighborhood committed by black youths. Sure enough, her quote was used to support an article that was leading up to the conclusion that Zimmerman had a right to profile Trayvon.

If this columnist turns out to be a Clarence Thomas, it will become evident over time. But he is also the same columnist who wrote a compelling article that explained why Black Americans were up in arms over the Zimmerman shooting. That one went over very well on DU.

However, now that this is posted, I am also seeing things from all sides. It's a learning experience.
