Jordan Davis Murder Mistrial: “Stand Your Ground” is just the latest iteration of anti-social legislation against black males.
Senseless Killings: Only tiny fractions of any race or age conform to the worst stereotypes of their demographic group.
Defending White Women: Under the guise of protecting white womanhood, black bodies hung and often burned while white onlookers cheered.
David Love: With the ink on the George Zimmerman ‘not guilty’ verdict barely dry, another state appears ready to consider a Florida-style “Stand Your Ground” law.
Sheria Reid: Evidently, the right to defend oneself only applies to Zimmerman. Trayvon was followed by an adult male whom he did not know. For all he knew Zimmerman was a pedophile or a kidnapper or both.
Robert Illes: Anyway, for me, at least there is the newly minted image that Trayvon went down fighting for his life – “standing his ground,” don’t you know, in the spirit of Jeb Bush’s NRA written law.
