What should be done in the Trayvon Martin case?
|It’s not a hoodie issue, it’s a race issue. Maybe we should march in blackface. Our outcry should shed a light on the injustice and tragedy that is racism and racial profiling.
|Only police should be patrolling neighborhoods with weapons. People who are not trained can make bad decisions that cannot be undone!||Mike B
|Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law needs serious review and/or eradication. It should never be used for the justification of murdering innocent American citizens.||Lisamarie Moore
|Zimmerman should definitely be charged with first-degree murder in the tragic death of this innocent teenager.||Ugo Mbawuike
|The law must balance fairly George Zimmerman’s brazen account against Trayvon Martin’s deathly silence. I think that blaming Trayvon for wearing a hoodie is like blaming the rape victim for what she’s wearing when she is attacked.||Marjorie Salvodon
|We must continue the complicated, painful national conversation about racism that Trayvon Martin’s murder started, until we’ve finally healed this country from the legacy of slavery.
