There’s always a silver lining of some sort in almost any situation. The Trayvon Martin killing, despite the racism we’re hearing from the right, is no exception. At least from what I can see the reaction from the country as a whole has been remarkably post racial. In the old days a killing like this would have stirred outrage in the black community, but rather muted reaction from whites. This time, the folks donning hoodies come in every hue. That’s progress of a sort.
