So I know, this isn't exactly news-format, but it is news. If the admins decide to move it, I can see it have a slot in the zimmerman subforum.

So this teenager (black) helped find this little girl (she's white). See, this a positive example in society and proof that race isn't an issue. It's decency. Why do we have to blow out of proportion and popularize trayvon martin and not good people like this Temar Boggs. Sure, he has a stupid sounding name, but he has a heart of gold.

If this were the news headlight for over a year, as trayvon martin case was, I guarantee you, people would have a much better view on race relations in the USA than they do now. Let's talk about these kind of people if you want to talk about some nobody on a national scale. Lets use him as an example on how first responders and being informed about what goes on in your community, can save lives. Can prevent abductions. Can make a positive impact in the world.

Instead, we have protests about how the verdict wasn't fair.
You know what we should have? A shirt with Tamar's face on it saying: Be involved in community life! Do your part to prevent kidnappers!

Agreed! These are the types of stories we should be hearing more of. People helping people. This kid did great and should be acknowledged. Would love to have him as my neighbor.

You don't hear them because they promote a unity spirit. There is no fiscal or political gain from unity.

Divisiveness sells and gets people elected. Why do you think the Sharptons and Jacksons are millionaires?
