Was anyone really surprised that a mostly white jury found a white-complexioned Hispanic man not guilty in the shooting and killing of an unarmed 17-year old black boy just walking home from a convenience store in Florida?
It wasn't all that many years ago that I recall seeing signs in front of many restaurants in the South, including Florida, that proudly proclaimed, "We don't serve (n-word)."
The signs are gone now but the mindset sadly remains with too many southerners; a mindset that suggests in the eyes of many African-Americans are still second-class citizens.
