    The media is responsible for the Trayvon Martin death and the thousands of similar killings of Blacks annually. Why you say? Simple the media does everything BUT its job in reporting on the self appointed Black leaders who get a pass on a minute by minute basis on the state of Black America. The media allows Jesse Jackson, Spike Lee, Russell Simmons, and Al Sharpton to get away with journalistic murder, by not questioning them on the most basic level about their lack of integrity in these cases. Are you telling me Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, or the leader of any other community could get away with what these four dishonest, insincere, incompetent hypocrites get away with?
    Hiring convicted child pornographers, never having worked a job, actually having promoted racial profiling of Blacks like Trayvon Martin, head of a phony organization that preys on Blacks, and worse. Why have these issues not been brought up? It is demeaning and insulting, and corrupt of the media to participate in the deaths of thousands of Black Americans, knowingly and willingly.

    On this morning's show, Howard did exactly what he was criticizing those who did stories on Trayvon Martin of doing – making a judgment without all the facts. Howard said the bloody head of George Zimmerman proved that a struggle had occurred. It did not such thing. We do not know whether Zimmerman did that to himself against a brick wall or a curb after the shooting, or perhaps had the apparent injuries before the confrontation with Martin, if there was one. Howard and his show are great and very worthy contributors to the public dialogue, but this time he should have considered the not-apparently-obvious other possibilities.
