Re school walk-out on March 14 (response to Parkland gun violence) [View all]

What are your thoughts?
Searching for a school to support in the March 14 walk-out (student-organized in response to gun violence), I looked for a majority Black school to support, and so far - all the schools that are listed in NJ are middle-upper class schools in well-off white neighborhoods.
What to make of this?

Over the last week, the survivors of the Parkland shooting are on every media outlet. I am glad they are.

But gun violence in the inner cities affects everyone who lives there. The trauma is fresh, multiple, chronic...
And yet when did you ever see a young person from the 'hood on the media talking about their trauma?

I have been wondering if I were a victim of gun violence in the inner city, how I would feel about the immense media coverage of the Parkland young people.
How would you?
