BCCList Diaspora Post #4
With over 300 comments on part 3, it’s time for a new thread, continuing the general discussion of all things Martin-Zimmerman case related.
I can’t help but observe that the same week of the one year anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death, the Supreme Court seems poised to overturn crucial aspects of the Voting Rights Act. Possible food for thought? The relationship of the micro to the macro? E.g. is our investment in this case a ‘bread and circuses’ distraction taking our attention away from more important if less dramatic issues, or does one help us better understand the other? No need for anyone to comment on this unless you feel like it. Just went through my head as I opened the new thread.
