    I am a white woman who lives with a white male in a 3 bedroom 2 bath home. We live about 4 blocks from a public housing complex, and there are white people. black people, hispanic people and asian people who live all around and as I walked to my local convienance store ,maybe 300 yards from my front door, I had no fear. When I approached the local store there were several young BLACK males having a happy conversation. As I approached the entrance to the store one young man was in the center of the walkway to the store and I said politely, "Excuse me please" and he turned and faced me and said, "Oh I'm sorry mam." It is a matter of respect for your fellowman and I really hope this doesn't go so far that we think someone is a bad person just for their ethnic background because then we will just be going backwards, and I hope if we get a lesson maybe EVERYONE will hear it. I am sorry for the Martins, I think there should have been an arrest, if only to clear up what everyone is questioning, and to give Mr. Zimmerman a chance to explain his actions. This is a complete mistep of law enforcement and justice.

    OK I will try again. Regardless of any race issue, every family who has a loved one killed by the hand of another deserves police investigation, and answers to their questions.

    I am NOT Trayvon Martin. I am a boring white person who goes to work, pays the bills and cleans the house; who does not attempt to beat people’s brains out when there is a difference of opinion or imagined slight. And I am not ashamed of that.
