Today's Los Angeles Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:
I have two questions.
First, if a white teenager had been arrested for burglary in Zimmerman's community, would he have suspected another white teenager of being up to no good?
Second, had the roles been reversed — if Martin, a black teenager, had shot Zimmerman under similar circumstances — would the shooter have been jailed immediately?
After answering these questions, can you doubt that this confrontation and shooting were race-related?
