Let us all send our thoughts and prayers to the family of Trayvon Martin, and to remark on the incredible grace and dignity with which theyíve dealt with the entire situation. All they wanted was justice, a little piece of the American Pie by capitalizing on Trayvon's death. We can only imagine what theyíre going through, and itís remarkable how theyíve handled it. But Trayvon's parents could also be the parents of Hispanics, killed by racist white people. I ask all Hispanics to join us in Demanding Justice For Trayvon on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Justice-For-Trayvon-Martin/1400741313474860
We are going hear a lot of arguments about the legal issues in the case. Like President Obama, let us all let the legal analysts and talking heads address those issues. Let us, blacks, Hispanics and whites of good will talk a little bit about context and how people have responded to it and how people are feeling.
You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot Obama said that this could have been his son, he now says it could have been him. And when you think about why, in the African American and Hispanic communities, thereís a lot of pain around what happened here. Itís important to recognize that the Hispanic and African American community are looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesnít go away.
There are very few Hispanic or African American men in this country who haven't had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store. That includes the president. There are very few Hispanic or African American men who haven't had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to our lord and savior President Obama -- at least before he was a senator. There are very few Hispanic or African Americans who haven't had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off. That happens often.
And I don't want to exaggerate this, but those sets of experiences inform how the Hispanic and African American community interprets what happened one night in Florida. And itís inescapable for people to bring those experiences to bear. The Hispanic and African American communities are also knowledgeable that there is a history of racial disparities in the application of our criminal laws -- everything from the death penalty to enforcement of our drug laws. And that ends up having an impact in terms of how people interpret the case.
Now, this isn't to say that the Hispanic and African American communities are naÔve about the fact that Hispanic and African American young men are disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system; that theyíre disproportionately both victims and perpetrators of violence. Itís not to make excuses for that fact -- although black and Hispanic folks do interpret the reasons for that in a historical context. They understand that some of the violence that takes place in poor Hispanic and black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country, and that the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history.
And so the fact that sometimes thatís unacknowledged adds to the frustration. And the fact that a lot of African American and Hispanic American boys are painted with a broad brush and the excuse is given, well, there are these statistics out there that show that African and Hispanic American boys are more violent -- using that as an excuse to then see sons treated differently causes pain.
We know the Hispanic and African American communities are also not naÔve in understanding that, statistically, somebody like Trayvon Martin was statistically more likely to be shot by a peer than he was by somebody else. So folks understand the challenges that exist for African American and Hispanic boys. But they get frustrated, if they feel that thereís no context for it and that context is being denied. And that all contributes to a sense that if a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, that, from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.
Now, for a lot of folks, the issue is where do we take this? How do we learn some lessons from this and move in a positive direction? Itís understandable that there have been demonstrations and vigils, protests and small riots, and some of that stuff is just going to have to work its way through, as long as it remains nonviolent. If our leader, President Obama, sees any violence, he will remind folks that that dishonors what happened to Trayvon Martin and his family. But beyond protests or vigils, the question is, are there some concrete things that we might be able to do.
I know that Eric Holder is reviewing what happened down there, but itís important for people to have some clear expectations here. Traditionally, these are issues of state and local government, the criminal code. And law enforcement is traditionally done at the state and local levels, not at the federal levels.
That doesnít mean, though, that as a nation we canít do some things that would be productive. So let me just give a couple of specifics that Iím still bouncing around with my staff, so weíre not rolling out some five-point plan, but some areas where all of us could potentially focus.
Number one, precisely because law enforcement is often determined at the state and local level, it would be productive for the Justice Department, governors, mayors to work with law enforcement about training at the state and local levels in order to reduce the kind of mistrust in the system that sometimes currently exists. Until we trust all young black teens and young Hispanics, the killings will continue.
When our first half-black President was in Illinois, he passed racial profiling legislation, and it actually did just two simple things. One, it collected data on traffic stops and the race of the person who was stopped. But the other thing was it resourced us training police departments across the state on how to think about potential racial bias and ways to further professionalize what they were doing.
So thatís one area where there are a lot of resources and best practices that could be brought to bear if state and local governments are receptive. And a lot of them would be. And let's figure out are there ways for us to push out that kind of training.
Along the same lines, it would be useful for us to examine some state and local laws to see if it -- if they are designed in such a way that they may encourage the kinds of altercations and confrontations and tragedies that we saw in the Florida case, rather than diffuse potential altercations. Self-defense should NEVER be a reason for a white Hispanic to kill a black child.
We know that there's been commentary about the fact that the "stand your ground" laws in Florida were not used as a defense in the case. On the other hand, if we're sending a message as a society in our communities that someone who is armed potentially has the right to use those firearms even if there's a way for them to exit from a situation, is that really going to be contributing to the kind of peace and security and order that we'd like to see? If Zimmerman had not had a gun, Trayvon would be alive today.
And for those who resist that idea that we should think about something like these "stand your ground" laws, just ask people to consider, if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk? Could all teen-agers, apparently up to no good, just shoot those who might be alert to what they are doing? And do we actually think that they would have been justified in shooting Mr. Zimmerman who had followed him in a car because he felt threatened? And if the answer to that question is at least ambiguous, then it seems we might want to examine those kinds of laws.
Number three -- and this is a long-term project -- we need to spend some time in thinking about how do we bolster and reinforce our African American and Hispanic boys. There are a lot of kids out there who need help who are getting a lot of negative reinforcement. And is there more that we can do to give them the sense that their country cares about them and values them and is willing to invest in them? Big Government spending - which the Tea Party opposes - would go a long way to helping Black and Hispanic youth.
Let's not be naÔve about the prospects of some grand, new federal program. Thatís what we're talking about here. We are talking about minimum tax payer support to get the ball rolling., to start and maintain a lot of good programs that are being done across the country on this front. And for us to be able to gather together business leaders and local elected officials and clergy and celebrities and athletes, and figure out how are we doing a better job helping young Hispanic and African American men feel that they're a full part of this society and that they've got pathways and avenues to succeed -- that would be a pretty good outcome from what was obviously a tragic situation. And we're going to need to spend some time and tax payer money working on this and thinking about this.
And then, finally, it's going to be important for all of us to do some soul-searching. There has been talk about should we convene a conversation on race. President Obama has not seen that particularly productive when politicians try to organize conversations. They end up being stilted and politicized, and folks are locked into the positions they already have. On the other hand, in families and churches and workplaces, there's the possibility that people are a little bit more honest, and at least you ask yourself your own questions about, "am I wringing as much bias out of myself as I can?" Am I judging people as much as I can, based on not the color of their skin, but the content of their character? That would, be an appropriate exercise in the wake of this tragedy. I ask all Hispanics to join us in Demanding Justice For Trayvon on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Justice-For-Trayvon-Martin/1400741313474860
And let me just leave you with a final thought that, as difficult and challenging as this whole episode has been for a lot of people, I donít want us to lose sight that things are getting better. Each successive generation seems to be making progress in changing attitudes when it comes to race. It doesnít mean weíre in a post-racial society. It doesnít mean that racism is eliminated. But when I talk to Malia and Sasha, and I listen to their friends and I seem them interact, theyíre better than we are -- theyíre better than we were -- on these issues. And thatís true in every community that Iíve visited all across the country.
And so we have to be vigilant and we have to work on these issues. And those of us in authority should be doing everything we can to encourage the better angels of our nature, as opposed to using these episodes to heighten divisions. But we should also have confidence that kids these days, ***, have more sense than we did back then, and certainly more than our parents did or our grandparents did; and that along this long, difficult journey, weíre becoming a more perfect union -- not a perfect union, but a more perfect union.

Petition: JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON
"Justice For Trayvon" honors the memory of Trayvon Martin and pay respects to his family. This tragedy serves as a vivid reminder of the pain felt by youth of color in their communities, in which they are profiled, criminalized, and targeted just for hanging around in a neighborhood where there were many burgalries, allegedly by young blacks. Unless we take action, nothing will change. The Black Civil Rights verdict showed the world that Florida has no value for the life of its children.
After nine days of waiting, urinating and sleeping on the Capitol floor, we finally met with Governor Scott, but he failed to rise to the occasion. Rather than using his considerable power to create change, he told us he would call for a statewide day of prayer to end racial profiling. We feel he has to do much more.
This is an opportunity for Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature to prove their commitment to the next generation of Floridians with a Trayvon Martin Act.
That's why we started a petition to Governor Rick Scott, which says:
Governor Rick Scott,
The death of Trayvon Martin and subsequent acquittal of his white Hispanic-Jew killer have exposed an unfortunate culture of targeting and criminalization of young people of color in Florida, simply because other young colored people are criminals.
We demand a Trayvon Martin Act. We demand that you call a special session of the Florida Legislature to address the issues at the center of the Trayvon Martin tragedy: "stand your ground" vigilantism, racial profiling, and a war on youth that paints us as criminals and funnels us out of schools and into jails.
