What Justice for Trayvon Martin looks like..

It can only happen when we as a society lift the indictment of skin color, of all the institutionalized systems that have created and reinforced a pigmentrocracy*.

"When you judge a man because of the color of his skin, then you're committing a crime, because that's the worst kind of judgment...the Black man can't hide. When they start indicting us because of our color that means we're indicted BEFORE we're BORN, which is the worst kind of crime that can be committed." 

-Malcolm X's speech at the Ford Auditorium on February 14, 1965, otherwise known as the "After the Bombing"speech

Justice for Trayvon is beyond the arrest of George Zimmerman and a formal investigation into the Sanford police department. It is the societal consensus we will and HAVE to form to guarantee that no human, like the one below, will EVER be indicted for his or her skin color. Will you commit to ending indictment by skin color?
