Do I Look Suspicious?


May God have mercy and patience with the rage and anger that Trayvon Martin’s parents must be experiencing. Who knew that Walking While Black could ever be so deadly? Armed with a bag of Skittles and a can of Amazon iced-tea, Trayvon Martin’s life was cut short after his girlfriend told him to run upon reporting to her that he was being followed. Many will say that this was not an act of racism or a hate crime. However, when you’re part of a culture that has been enslaved, abused, hanged, lynched and set on fire and the perpetrators always happen to be of the hue responsible for all of the aforementioned atrocities committed against your people, race comes into play.
