Racist attitudes constitute a poison within American Society. Will we come together as a people to find an antidote for this poison that decreases the social distance between Americans? Will we be able to share common dreams and aspirations for a better life? To continue the current discrimination that disproportionately places African-Americans on death row and in prison, where they serve longer prison sentences than other racial populations, is to ensure that the poison will spread. Meanwhile, let each of us try to feel
the pain of Travon's loved ones at his not only being murdered, but convicted of "walking while Black."
