Zimmerman passes for white.
American law seems to place no value upon escalation. With George Zimmerman and Kyle Shittenhouse, we've seen that you can pick a fight with an unarmed person and then escalate the stakes to life-or-death by bringing a gun WITHOUT BEING HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ESCALATION, and then claim self-defense when you kill someone.
Nobody would have died if Kyle Shittenhouse stayed home, and yet millions of Americans stroke their chins thoughtfully and conclude that his "I just went there to help, and then I had no choice but to defend myself from the RAGINGVIOLENTDEATHMOB" argument is completely solid.
The people who reach this conclusion do so not because of logic, but because they evaluate situations like this by imagining themselves being there, and guess whose shoes they ALWAYS choose to put themselves in.
At what point does America's love of guns get classified as a mental illness?
There are two kinds of Americans:
1) Those who are angry and disturbed by the fact that the courts have essentially given carte blanche to violent armed vigilantes to pick a fight with someone and then kill him if he fights back.
2) Those who are angry and disturbed about imaginary fraudulent voting ballots in parking lots.
And there's zero crossover between those two groups.
