In Light Of Trayvon Martin…Was King’s Dream Too Hopeful?

I’m not wearing my “gangsta” hoodie today, but #Travyon is in my heart. Dammit America, when will we end open season on black men? #million

It’s been open season on black men in this country since 1619–that’s 393 years.  Is it even possible to imagine a time in which the ultimate American boogie-man is NOT a male of African descent?

 Will there ever be a time in which black men will be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin?
