Who is George Zimmerman? Don’t know, don’t care.

Who is George Zimmerman?
Here’s what I know:
He shot someone named Trayvon Martin. I don’t know who that is either. Nor do I know why he shot
him. I wasn’t there.
I also know that George Zimmerman was found not guilty of whatever charges he faced.
I also know that crimes like this take place every day all around the world, including and especially
here in the U.S. And a VERY small percentage of those every see the light of day. Because no one
cares. Or it’s not important enough for the media to follow.
Or maybe “controversial” is a better word.
But in the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin case, the media found a story they could get the
public to follow, be it about race, age, motivation, etc.
Someone asked me the other day what I thought of what was happening in the George Zimmerman
/ Trayvon Martin trial. To which I responded, “Who?”. I had no idea who/what they were talking
Does this make me weird? Uninformed? Uncaring?
I don’t think so.
You see, I don’t waste my time with sensationalist media stories, nor do I care to. It doesn’t make me
uninformed, because it doesn’t me, nor does it affect 99% of the population, other than being able to
join a water cooler conversation.
George Zimmerman in Court
This is one of those polarizing stories that has people racing to social media sites to argue their side.
People are even ‘unfriending’ others on Facebook because they disagree on the verdict.
I understand it’s the media’s job to get ratings. And when they can hype up a story and make it about
race, and create outrage, people will watch. But not me.
I don’t watch the news. Ever. It’s nothing but the sensationalism of violence, rape, and murder that
has become so commonplace that we’ve become numb to it. It’s even found its way into video
games that kids play.
It’s nothing but negative news that makes people scared to go outside. And hateful. And angry. And
negative. And miserable.
I don’t let that kind of crap into my brain. Garbage in = garbage out. I like to fill my mind with positive
messages through reading, listening and watching things that allow me to both learn and improve
myself as a person.
And if avoiding garbage like this trial and this story makes me “uninformed”, then so be it. I will
continue to feed my mind positive information so I can remain a positive, happy, and kind person.
You want to feel better about yourself? Stop watching the news. You’ll be amazed at the results.
What do YOU think?
Am I in the wrong here? Should I be glued to stories like this? Or do you agree about the negativity
the media spews out on a daily basis?
