So What Will You Do Now?


He's dead! Trayvon Martin is dead...He has been dead for over a year now!  The man who killed him is free, acquitted in a court of law.  No matter how much I disagree with that verdict...There is nothing more that can be done about that!

A Civil Suit won't net much....and a federal civil rights indictment won't be worth the paper it's written on...
So what will you do now?

Many of us will rant and rave  and vent on social media ad nauseum! Then...maybe a month from now...there will be nothing...By Christmas...everyone will have forgotten and moved on to the next big trending topic...
So in other words...most people won't do a damn thing!

Here's what you can do...You can take names and you can use the power of your vote to put these folks out of office who write these archaic and barbaric laws like Stand your ground et al...You can hold everyone who shills for your vote accountable....and demand equal protection under the law...We don't need any new laws...We need the laws already on the books to be enforced...

You can write, email whatever your congressman, your represenative and demand that they vote to strengthen the voters right laws and make them a constitutional amendment rather than merely an act that has to be voted on every so many years....

These are things you can do to make sure that Trayvon and Oscar Grant and all of the other nameless and faceless victims of racist violence as well as Black on Black crime did not die in vain...

This is what you can do....the question is....


Will you?
