That dream died with the exsanguination of Trayvon Martin. He will have a lifetime of night times to contemplate how his life would be different if he had not acted in such a rash manner.
Maybe he will take a redemptive path, learning from the consequences of his conduct and becoming someone who helps others see racism and violence in themselves to help them overcome it. If he did something redemptive with his life, he would gain some honor and admiration, even if it will still be hard to forget his transgressions.
I suspect the redemptive path is not a path that the right wing would want him to take. The righties here seem to see nothing wrong with Zimmerman's behavior, which means they probably wouldn't mind him getting his gun back and shooting another innocent, as long as that innocent is black. I suspect the right will dangle money, maybe gun money, in front of him, and if he is as sick an individual as the left thinks he is, he'll probably take it. Glorification of death and racism---that's what we can expect from the right, and Zimmerman could make a bundle off the sickness of the right.
The question is what sort of character does Zimmerman have? I think I have an idea, but I hope I am wrong.
Uh huh... Zimmerman has to come to grips with his racism. He's been doing it all wrong: By voting for Obama, taking a black girl to the high school prom, mentoring black kids, advocating for a homeless black man who had been beaten by a white guy, having a black man as his business partner, inviting his black neighbor to stay at his house for as long as she wanted after she was upset by a break-in in her home... what the hell kind of shitty racist is this?
But who am I to argue with you and Al Sharpton.... you know a racist when you see one. Right?
