We all must build a common understanding of race, become aware of the role we play in upholding systems of oppression, and get comfortable with vulnerability.
The assumption that white children will be treated respectfully, as we teach them to treat others, is a privilege.
Universities need to lead the way toward the national conversation on race we clearly need.
Why must we now teach our sons to defer to all potential bigots who come their way?
I want to assure Trayvon's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, as well as millions of their supporters, that this isn't over.
The Trayvon Martin verdict shows that with "Stand Your Ground" laws, it's your word against theirs and they're dead.
If I was scared when I shot Trayvon, with all the demonstrations against me you wouldn't believe how scared I am now!
Not only have the people rebelled, they've also organized and mobilized.
