Trayon Martin is a martyr to residual racism



Trayon Martin is a martyr to residual racism
Knee jerk racism
The presumption of guilt based on stereotypes
The tendency toward fixed ideas even in the face of cautionary warnings
This is 20012
That is the scandal and the call
To end this with some cloture at the top
A chorus of rectitude
An abjuring of avoidance
A willingness to shamefully confess the lingering truth
And to start the slow and arduous process
Of starting to live together
In actuality
In the community of our actual unity
That preexisted
And is alive only to those
With eyes to see

This dear boy
Calling us
Help
