The Verdict is in - Hoodies Up for Trayvon.

As most of you know, George Zimmerman has been found not guilty for murder of Trayvon Martin by a mostly white jury. It's yet another reminder that our judicial system is in a state of profound disfunction. Trayvon's death is a symptom of a national illness that allows for the targeting of young black men. Though his death and trial took place in Florida, we know that the outcome is a blow to justice everywhere. An injustice to one is an injustice to all.

    I hope there is a discussion tonight about the Marissa Alexander case this week, as well as the Zimmerman case. I cannot understand how Alexander was sentenced to 20 years in jail for firing a warning shot in the air, while Zimmerman was set free for murdering a child.
