I’d just landed in D.C. when the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial was announced. Not guilty. Of course.
I wish I could say I was shocked, but I’m not. It saddens me greatly to know that an overzealous, paranoid, armed man can admit to having killed an unarmed, minding his own business boy and get away with it, but it doesn’t shock me. I wish it did.
That we are fighting the same battles in 2013 that we were generations ago is mind boggling.
To quote the great activist Ms. Fannie Lou Hamer, I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.
