Don't let the facts get in the way of exploitation

The following is excerpted from a press release issued by the Greater Atlanta Chapter of the National Black Prosecutors Association announcing a series of public forums entitled Black Prosecutors Teach Teens Lessons of the Trayvon Martin Case:
Next week, in recognition of February as Black History month, members of the Greater Atlanta Black Prosecutors Association are leading six panel discussions at Fulton, Dekalb and City of Atlanta high schools to examine the realities of African-American boys’ and young men’s interactions with law enforcement. “Too often,” says National Black Prosecutors Association President Bruce Brown, “African-American males are disproportionately impacted by negative interactions with law enforcement personnel. This should not be the case.”
Have these black prosecutors forgotten how Trayvon Martin was killed?

I don't remember it involving interaction with police. Best I recall, police arrived after the homicide.

  1. Gotta tell them that they are "Victims" of the system and it don't matter that young black males cause a disproportionate amount of the crime on each other and others relative to their population. It doesn't matter that this is what the cops see on a regular basis and it forms the base of their attitudes You can't tell them that it is a cultural thing, and they have to fix their culture.
