So I wrote The Crime of Being Black: Trayvon Martin and the Everyday Reality of Racist Violence in America for Global Comment. It says a lot of what I'm thinking about this case, but not everything. Because expressing everything would involve profanity & tears. Kid #1 is at that age where he goes places alone & wears hoodies & talks to girls on the phone & I just...that could be my son. Or one of his friends. Think about that when you find young black men suspicious simply for being outside in the world.
