    Beyond Racism: Racial Divide onTrayvon Martin Case Must not Incite Violence


    On April 9, 2012, someone changed an electronic sign outside of Detroit to a racial messageabout Trayvon Martin. The fact that this sign was changed by someone who had the ability and/or was in a position to change a display to offend and cause others to react in a violence or negative way can't be ignored. The recently Tulsa shooting which maybe a hate crime could also be an aftermath of Trayvon's murder and Zimmerman's role in his death. Nothing in this world happens by chance I believe that I can help to defuse this ticking time bomb by engaging this nation in a conversation on racism.
