It was about four and a half years ago that I wrote I voted for a man for President of the United States, in part because he was Black.

If anyone didn't understand then and still doesn't understand now why I did that, please take a moment to watch:



I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that this may have been the most important speech of his Presidency.

A jury of six women, at least five of whom were White, and none of whom were Black, believed that a 29 year old 200 lb. man, leaving his car with a concealed firearm to stalk a 17 year old, unarmed teenager in a hoodie because he looked suspicious was in reasonable fear for his life and could therefore shoot and kill him, and this constituted reasonable behavior.

There's been a lot said about how this is reasonable doubt, and reasonable fear for life.

Context matters. There is nothing about this that is reasonable, unless we accept that there are still some deeply held racial biases in this country that not even the election of our first African American President can overcome.

We are told time and again that Justice is blind. Unless those administering Justice are similarly blind, this is an illusion, a fairy tale we tell ourselves to make us believe we live in a Just and Good world.

It may yet be a Just and Good world, but in order to be so, it must be Honest. I sincerely hope the President's extraordinary words here prompt us to be honest.

Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago.

I have very strange friends. Thank God!

Prompt:

“It’s a clam.”

“It sounds so dirty when you say it like that.”

“I’m not even sure how I’m supposed to get in.”

“Never seemed to stop you before.”

“So you’re okay with me diving into your clam every night?”

“I’ve never complained before, have I? Let me show you how to turn this on.”

“You say that like I’ve never been able to push the button.”

“Yes, but I really don’t care to have you groping around in the dark until you find it.”

“Maybe we should just leave the light on then.”

“Just don’t leave anything else on.”
