Because the Trayvon Martin tragedy has again focused national attention on race and the plight of the African American male, we are again called to begin doing something about it. If the truth be told, every day there are Trayvon Martin-like killings in cities across the nation, including this one.
Oh, friends! It is time out for ignorance and prejudice and hate and fear. The fight is not with one another; writ large, it is a fight for the future of all mankind. The call is clear. The time is now. The place to begin, right here.
Have a nice day.
