The Loop 21: Travyon Martin's Death And 'Stand Your Ground' Laws

The work on the student lending crisis continues. In this piece, however, I discuss the murder of Trayvon Martin and 'Stand Your Ground' laws.

Here's a snippet:

The tragic death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin has raised serious questions about race issues in the United States. The theory of a post-racial America, which many pundits proclaimed countless times shortly after President Obama’s election, seems to carry even less weight now.

Of course, Martin’s death has not been the only cause for intensified discussions about race and inequality. These societal problems are crucial and call for honest public debates that allow all Americans to assess race matters in this country.
