The Proper Context For Counter-Zimmermans

As I've blogged before, the whole Zimmerman racialism thing was like leaning into a left hook. With so many counterexamples out there to be thrown in their faces, it was just ratcheting up the "No, you suck!" contest. Personally, I've got no problem with a bit of that mud slinging, but I think it ought to be in this context:
Is this what you wanted - everyone reaching for examples of people of their race being attacked by another? How much more of this would you like to see?
Until race-mongers like Sharpton, Jackson, Obama and Holder get 10,000W yellow traffic light bulbs shining right in their eyes every time they start down this road, we're all going to be drowning in this garbage.

Before dragging race into any issue, proceed with caution. Lots of caution.
