LATASHA HARLINS TO TRAYVON MARTIN: HOW FAR HAVE WE COME?
On March 16, 1991, 15-year old Latasha Harlins was killed in a liquor store over a bottle of orange juice(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latasha_Harlins). This case, along with the Rodney King case, sparked the 1992 Los Angeles riots. Here we are 20 years later with Sanford, Florida having to deal with the Trayvon Martin case(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trayvon_Martin). What have we learned from all this? I did a video yesterday about my personal account about the L.A. riots(http://livestre.am/1KAJp). I just want to say again to the people of Sanford, Florida to not repeat our mistakes. Instead of reacting, continue to take action. Trayvon's parents has been so gracious in the handling of their son's case. Let's follow their lead. Taking action requires thought; reacting is doing stuff without thinking. Continue to take action in a positive way. Don't do things in haste that destroy your own community. LET JUSTICE TAKE ITS COURSE.
