Letter: ‘There is no magic in gender’

July 19, 2013 

The result of the George Zimmerman trial by an all female jury proves to me that there is no magic in gender.

I’ve listened to people bash “old white guys” all my life. The jury in the George Zimmerman trial wasn’t composed of “old white guys.” Different gender. Same result.

There is no magic in gender, race, color, age, religion or national origin.
