    about the same time. The Jim Crow system you encountered was something drilled into me from my earliest memories. The Zimmerman trial gives really uncomfortable flashbacks of when as a barefoot boy I used to go and sit in George Wallace's courtroom.

    Far too many people think that just by getting rid of the separate bathrooms and fountains they got rid of racism.
