The Legacy of Racism Continues!
Trayvon had a right to turn around, confront Zimmerman and stand HIS (Trayvon's) ground; BUT, the jurors (primarily made up of majority group members) decided that Trayvon had No right to stand his ground? This is a law that is definetly unequally applied and understood and that can cost black children their lives.
After 310 years of enslavement and 90 years of Jim Crow, we, Black folks, still must tell our children, what our parents told us, what their parents told them and what their parents, parents told their children - when you see a "white" person approaching, look down, step to the side and immediately beg their pardon. If this is not the continuing legacy of White supremacy and Racism, What IS?
