Because this is not just about Trayvon's death. This is about racism- Trayvon was profiled, and  Rachel Jeantel was humiliated during the trial. Poverty and racism are at the root of all of this. So let this be a signal for America that the fight for racial equality is not even close to over. We need to take over where the previous generation left off. Where Trayvon left off.

We need to fight to make sure this doesn't happen again. We can still get him justice, if another child doesn't die like this.

And we can also give Trayvon's father some peace:

That's what Trayvon's father wants. And that's what we should fight for.

We need to make another push for gun control, for health and education and most of all to get rid of that "stand your ground" law.
