Discussion: Addressing the Elephant About the Trayvon Martin Killing

I’ve stayed out of the Trayvon Martin fray, and mostly just observing. From those observations, I developed this question:

In regards to the Trayvon shooting, why is it that people only march and protest when a black boy is murdered? And why is it more outrageous when a non-black person kills a black person, but okay when we kill each other? And, pray tell, how are black women to interpret this perceived lack of value on their lives?

Okay, that’s like, three questions.
