I am very upset right now
I had two black students this year named Trayvon (albeit with different spellings). Will they end up like Martin? Will someone see them in a hoodie and assume they are up to no good? Will a lawyer be able to convince a jury that they deserved to die and therefore their murderer gets to walk free in "self-defense"? Or will a lifetime of discrimination and oppression play out in less violent but no less devastating ways?
