love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
For once, I have no words.
Here is H. Samy Alim’s article that says better what I can’t.
“..It is clear that the murder of Trayvon Martin provides us with a moment to deal with the personal and collective trauma of racial abuse.”
” I may not know Trayvon Martin, but I know his fear all too well. For many of us, the Trayvon Martin case has reopened the scab on our souls created by the continual experiences of racial abuse at the hands of our “fellow Americans” and institutions designed to protect us. Every Trayvon Martin case triggers the trauma, reminding us of the fear, pain, suffering, and humiliation that we have long silenced and suppressed.”
