  1. More good material:

    How Laissez-Faire Racism Explains the Trayvon Martin Case

    They’re Lying (Note, I don’t think everyone who espouses the opinions the author describes here is lying, but I agree with much of the author’s analysis of what the case was “about.” )

    – Also see the pattern showing in this series of posts about the Michael Dunn case, the John Henry Spooner case, and the Emmett Till case.

  2. J. K. Gayle says:

    And now Barack Obama:

    You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.

  3. Thanks for the additional links, Kurk.
