Here’s a question:
Whom would you rather have as a neighbor: George Zimmerman or Trayvon Martin?
The overall picture that has finally emerged is the opposite of the Prestige Press’s narrative: while an occasional screw-up, Zimmerman was way above average in altruism and pro-social activity, while Martin was increasingly seduced toward the dark side by hip-hop culture: apparently involved in burglary of jewelry. (…)
My vague impression is that younger people in America are trending in the direction of Zimmerman rather than Martin: away from outlawry, toward pro-social behavior, conformism, authoritarianism, and so forth.
