9. K&R I like to think I know what it is like to be black in America

and I know I am being naive. I am outraged at the injustice in the Trayvon Martin killing. I cannot fathom how this young man was a threat in any way. Walking home from the store is not a crime.

My black co-workers have had to answer suspicious person calls. What was suspicious? They were BIK.
Black in Kirkland.(Kirkland WA.) A car full of black nursing students driving slowly through the parking structure.
A black male in the hospital cafeteria too long.....

If I am frustrated by the bigotry and ignorance so prevalent in this country in the 21st century.


Thank you for the post MrScorpio. Excellent. Insightful. Educational.
