I’m still unable to get my mind around the death o Trayvon Martin, a 17 year old Black boy. What was Trayvon’s crime? Being Black in America. The neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, decided they didn’t like the way this young Black man looked and started to stalk him by following him in his SUV. In broad daylight, Trayvon was walking home from the store with a drink and skittles for his brother. But this vigilant said Trayvon looked up to something and he had his hand in the waist ban of his pants. He looked supscious.
Trayvon was profiled and executed. When you stop and think about the young Black men you know who are not here. The tragedy of loosing another innocent boy is heart breaking. The heart of every mother, grandmother, sister aunt held their breath on the 911 call and tears welled up knowing Trayvon’s mother recognized her baby crying out for help and then hearing the shot that took his life. How could any human being not protest this injustice?
Three weeks later and still no arrest for Trayvon’s murder.
