Primus Mootry: Zimmerman trial is painful to watch

(Continued)

I seriously doubt that a “guilty” or “not guilty” verdict in the Trayvon Martin case will result in the kind of urban unrest unleashed after the slaying of Dr. King or Rodney King. Most likely, whatever the verdict, we will go on with the same double-consciousness that DuBois discussed over a hundred years ago, and the same conflict it inflames.

Have a nice day.

Anderson resident Primus Mootry is a retired school teacher. His column appears Wednesdays in The Herald Bulletin.
