One Comment on “Can the Trayvon Martin Case Help Overcome Racial Conflict?”

  1. I like the last line of your column, “It would be a fitting legacy.” This young man’s tragic death shouldn’t be in vain, that’s for sure.

    I agree with all of your suggestions of improvements, but I think we could add another that would be helpful: somehow, we have to reduce the socioeconomic differences between many people of color (I think that’s a strange term) and many Caucasians. So many factors are at play here, and money (or the lack thereof) has to be considered.

    We can’t simply throw money at a problem to make it go away. My only real suggestion is improved education for everyone, but especially disadvantaged populations. With education comes jobs. With jobs come money. With money comes more opportunities. And so on.

    In the meantime, I will pray that justice will be done in this horrible case.
