At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed. Oh had I the ability, and could reach the nation’s ear, I would, pour out a fiery stream of biting ridicule, blasting reproach, withering sarcasm, and stern rebuke.”

–Frederick Douglass (1852)

In regards to the Trayvon Martin shooting:

The legal system is testing whether a non-black person can murder a Black person and get away with it. Law enforcement agencies from the F.B.I. to local police are by duty obligated to enforce the law.

If the “stand your ground” is a legal statute, then the legal system is testing the U.S. Constitution and thereby is testing the limits of American citizens. How much will the people tolerate?

“Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.”

Frederick Douglass
