Trayvon Martin did not get justice.

Something else to remember: Stop and Frisk of and Voting by people of colour.

1. Every day the police stop-and-search policy leads to harassment of young black and Latino men. To prosecution of minor offences that white middle class kids wouldn’t even be checked for.

Only 1 percent of 1 percent of those frisks leads to finding a gun, which was the rationale for this law. It is shameful.

2. And the right to vote is for many of those black men is a right in name only. It is taken away easily. And even when they go vote, chances are that the identification laws or the dearth of voting stations will stop them or hinder them.
