Republican pollster Scott Rasmussen weighs in on the national race discussion (for lack of a better term) that's taken place since the acquittal of George Zimmerman.

Rasmussen writes in his Friday column:

Consider the simple fact that, compared to white Americans, black Americans are three times as likely to know someone in prison and twice as likely to know someone who was murdered. It's not surprising that most black Americans view the justice system with the same level of suspicion that the tea party has for the Internal Revenue Service. The distrust is justified.
