Spike Lee re-Tweeted a former address of William Zimmerman's to his 252,000 plus followers for the purpose of helping people find him. Zimmerman has been in the news a lot lately after shooting a much younger African American and claiming self defense. This has outraged the African American community because Zimmerman has been reported in the news as using racial slurs and the deceased was not armed. Even if Zimmerman did kill that kid in cold blood out of prejudice that does not give Spike Lee the right to post his address online and it does not give Marcus D. Higgins of Los Angeles the right to stalk him for his address.

This author believes that Spike Lee should remember the example set by Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) when he said:

"Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time, the need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love."

Spike Lee should follow MLK's example and help today's generation follow his model of non-violence because if MLK were an instigator of violence Spike probably would never have been able to get the seats he used to motivate Reggie Miller so well. Publishing Zimmerman's address so people can find him at a time like this is completely inappropriate and now an innocent couple have had to leave their home out of fear that people seeking revenge on Zimmerman might target them. There is no justifiable reason for Spike's actions and although he has apologized I doubt that it is good enough for his victims who will not sleep soundly for quite some time.
