Vail Daily letter: Where are you, Rev. Al?

Until the horrific murder of Zemir Begic, the 32-year-old Bosnian immigrant who was bludgeoned to death by last Sunday by hammer-wielding teens (in front of his fiancee and just 20 miles from Ferguson, Mo.) receives the same national media and presidential attention as the Michael Brown case, we will never have an honest discussion of race in this country. Begic was white, the accused are all minorities.
