Is it really that hard for some of us to see the difference between the Trayvon Martin injustice and inner city crime?
What motivates us to want to remove race from this atrocity and wave the wand of guilt in our face because we aren’t equally outraged over murder between two guilty parties?
Are we not clear of the importance of this moment in our society and how this case in particular can help correct our course as a people?
Is it not obvious that racial profiling was present, acted on, trusted and excepted by a wannabe cop and local law enforcement?
Do we not agree that profiling is the very essence of racism, a global epidemic that isn’t isolated to the street corner but shapes the worlds view?
Do we not see Trayvon Martin as the tipping point of our tolerance of systemic racism?
Is it not clear that if we don’t stand united as a people for an unarmed innocent boy who was viewed as a criminal because of his race, we will be set back as a society at least 60 years?
Do we not understand that this is a slap in the face of every decent black man who decided to fight the war on ignorance in our community by not being ignorant?
Are we not clear that Trayvon wasn’t looking to kill or be killed that evening and that he was only going to the store?
Do we not know that if George Zimmerman isn’t arrested that being black and innocent is no longer a defense against the open hunting season on black males?
