Trayvon Martin, an unarmed Black teenager, was killed by gunshot as he was walking home from a corner store where he had purchased skittles and iced tea.  The trigger man was George Zimmerman, a 28 year old man who has been called both White and Latino.  For many weeks George Zimmerman was not charged with any crime, the police citing the shooting was in self-defense.  People were outraged, especially black people.  Clearly, in the minds of many, this was a case of a White man gunning down an innocent Black child and getting away with it.  Soon after the shooting all the typical so called civil rights leaders performed their usual marches and speeches reserved for occasions when these calamities gain heighten media attention. And then there were those other groups proposing drastic measures including violence to bring about their perception of justice.  Those methods proposed by such groups will be the topic of discussion in the Virtual Living Room.
