Trayvon Martin

Added on by Arturo Gutierrez.

I just want to make a few simple statements about my reaction now, days after the ruling.  

We have no need for civilian vigilantes anymore. Zimmerman acted like one.  

Our gun culture is manic.  

To be consistently looked at and acted upon as foreign, different and menacing because of unfamiliarity is one of the most uncomfortable feelings I've ever felt. Black america has been here as long as white america and they continue to feel this. It's wrong.  

This should be a topic of conversation at every dinner table this week.

That kid's death was completely unnecessary.  

It's 10:50am (Mountain Time) and I'm waiting to hear the Attoreny General Eric Holder show some leadership.
