Text Size: A | A

Fund raising needed to keep City Ballet at SPAC, and it's possible Two weeks after the residency by the New York City Ballet (NYCB) at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC), and after a week filled with National Ballet of Canada performances -- I am more concerned than ever that City Ballet will be lost to our region.

Diane Sanders Hombach, The FBI, Police and Jury saw it different. I'm tired of hearing about Zimmerman. Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery according to the examiner How about the 50 black kids murdered in Chicago this week. As long as we continue to use race as an issue, race will continue to be an issue.

Diane, Who do you think the cops pull over in black neighborhoods? The white kids driving around because they know they are looking for drugs. Where are all the complaints about that? Zimmerman wasn't chasing him, he was walking when Martin attacked him, broke his nose then when Zimmerman fell to the ground Martin started pounding Zimmermand head into the sidewalk. One more thing, it was dark, raining out and Trayvon had his hood up how could anyone tell what color he was?

Diane, before you speak of walking in black mans shoes maybe you should look at why whites are suspicious and nervous around blacks. Are you so naive that you believe white people simply do not like the color black! There are far fewer racist in this country then you or your leaders like Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson or BHO would have Americans believe. For persons arrested for homicide in 2011, 49.7% were black. The percentage of blacks in this country is something like 14% (I may be off with that) yet
they commit 50% of the murders. Is that white peoples fault? I suspect you are far safer walking in a white neighborhood then any white person is walking in a black neighborhood. Maybe its about time blacks take some responsibility for the disintegration of their families, their fatherless children, their crime rates and their racist views about white people. Zimmerman had the right to save his own life. Martin had no right to try and take it. Walking in a white mans shoes might just open your eyes.
