7. Wish I could recommend this a billion times

And I want to emphasize that it is a CHOICE to see what is really going on. Trayvon Martin's name serves that indicator to show who has made the choice to see and who has not.

Cursing, whether someone is a racial or religious minority, or a woman, or a person who is not confined to some kind of narrow definition of "normal" sexuality, even someone who thinks that people are more important than banks or corporations… We are appalled to find so often that these are people who so frequently find themselves at the short end of the stick.

I will posit that none of their defenders will offer any logical or reasonable answers as to why this has allowed to come to pass. They will scream, they will brandish weapons, they will excuse their own hypocrisy, they will defame and lie… They will do anything except speak the simple truth: That a decent America wouldn't allow these things to come to pass.
So because of this, we have all learned Trayvon Martin's name.

Very well stated.
