Charles Pierce on Trayvon Martin

You should read Mr Pierce’s post for yourself, but this sentence at the end is awesome:

And what makes me angry down to my soul is not that my children could have been Trayvon, but that, because of the way we have ordered our politics and our society, only someone like Trayvon could have been Trayvon.

By the way, I felt cold so I wore a hoodie today.
