I heard they trademarked Trayvon’s name

These words uttered by a co-worker. To me such a statement stems from a desire to divert attention from the matter at hand — that an innocent black child was murdered.

It is this form of racism that is most common and most insidious.

My response was not a politically correct non-response. It was not a gentle nod of the head.

I confronted it directly and stated, “An innocent black child was murdered. The murderer is known and has not even been questioned. Everything else is irrelevant.”

He quietly left my office.

    Did not realize you were there…An innocent black child was murdered….doubt that can be proven by reason  has been alledged. Will you accept a judges/juries  decision ?  We need to teach everyone this is a violent world…it will only change if we accept the consquences of our actions and stop being violent .
