A simple question about the George Zimmerman trial

Published by: Dan Calabrese on Thursday July 11th, 2013

I really haven't followed the trial, since I don't see why I should, although you obviously can't escape the fact that coverage of it and talk about it are freaking everywhere.

But here's my question. It's really simple:

More than 300 people are murdered in Detroit every year. Most of them are black. Why is any one of their murders less worthy of the nation's attention than Trayvon Martin's?

Please tell me.

Of course... we already know the answer... it's his imaginary woulda-been Dad.
