Weekly Challenge 383: Just

Another article in this mornings newspaper calling for change to Florida’s self-defense laws in the wake of the Trayvon Martin case. Once again, a re-invention of facts to fit a scenario of racism different than the evidence presented at trial.  If the media used the actual facts, it would be hard to define pulling a gun while flat on your back having your head pounded into the ground an act of racism.  Or should we call the woman from NJ pummeled in her home by a black assailant in front of her 3 year old child a racist?  Is that just?
