Led by Anger


Trayvon Martin’s murder is just angering. I’m angry about:

I am angry. I’m trying to slow walk posts about it because I am so angry that I don’t want to state something that is immediately stupid or wrong just to support my personally desired outcome. (Also because bloggers like TNC , journalists like Charles Blow and Political Scientists like Melissa Harris-Perry are breaking this down better than I ever could.)

Most people who hear about Trayvon Martin’s death are angry. That anger could lead us to recklessness or vindictiveness or criminal cruelty and we all need to be careful about that.

Note: Think Progress has a strong run down of all the information in the order it breaks.
