Hurricane Katrina August 29, 2005, ripped the scab off of the festering racism in America as the world watched the neglect of Black Americans in New Orleans.... It seemed that the atrocities blew over; even when the truth came out about six indictments and prison terms for law official in the New Orleans area found guilty of shooting and killing unarmed Hurricane survivors when they tried to cross a bridge.
The fatal shooting of 17 year old unarmed Black American high school student, Trayvon Martin, by George Zimmerman 28 year old White American, occurred February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida, United States.
The murder of Trayvon Martin should be the decisive turning point for Black Americans... even the "Bouggie" must admit that the defense in Zimmerman's trial did not try to prove that Zimmerman did not kill an unarmed 17 year old Black American maleand the prosecution did not put forth the effort to establish that a crime had been committed. "Killing an unarmed 17 year old Black male IS NOT a crime in the United States of America.
For the scholars following the "happenings" in America, look at outrageous disproportionate Black American persecution by the Florida judicial system. Florida has worked hard to attract tourism. For the Florida Black resident, there is open contempt, overt punishment and death.
American Black celebrities have called for a boycott of Florida tourism attractions and destinations for "National Conventions" . I wonder if Black organizations are listening. I am a member of The Links, Inc and the last national conference was in Florida (Jacksonville) and the last southern area conference was in Florida (Miami). So I know that Florida benefits from Black American money. Its time that Black Ameicans let their money do the talking.
