After reading about the sit-in at Centre Avenue ("2 Rallies Merge in Hill District to Discuss Verdict," July 15), and the statement from 19-year-old Brya Adams that "the system was never built for us," I just had to say that statement was not thought out very well.
Although I feel that George Zimmerman should have been found guilty to some level, because he did take a life with a weapon (although protected by the foolish Florida law), I must add the following. The "system [that] was not built for us" has given several benefits.
I have been involved in repairing Section 8 houses, and upon entering them I see two or three televisions, top-of-the-line phones, stereos and many more expensive electronic devices, expensive tennis shoes, etc. This is all supported by "the system [that] was never built for us." It also helps females who have two or more children without a husband to receive welfare, food stamps and other assistance.
I feel that the government should allow assistance for only two children who are brought into this world by unwed mothers (no matter what race they are). I could probably go on, but I will stop here and say "Think before acting."
