News is about Martin/ Zimmerman case: People of all races are upset that an innocent man could be followed, and gunned down and the killer is not convicted. I admire President Obama for speaking out and giving us a hint at what life is like for black men. We fear black men. Almost every segment of society has been helped by television programing. We've been socialized to accept gays, obesity, and different ethnic groups. They are presented to us as diversity; mainstreaming differences. Not so with blacks. They are presented in their own foreign culture, closed off from the rest.
