The anger is about Amadou Diallo, Oscar Grant, Ramarley Graham, 14 year-old Derek Lopez, Sean Bell, 7 year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones and countless other unarmed Blacks and Latinos who are gunned down by law enforcement.  The anger is about arbitrary laws like New York's "Stop and Frisk" program that targeted  685,724 New Yorkers in 2011;  88% of those stopped were people of color; 9% were white.  The anger is about the "racial" difference and indifference shown by law enforcement and legislators. 

  As catastrophic as Trayvon's death is, for those who seek to have an open an honest dialogue, it can become the catalyst toward healing Blacks and educating whites to a social inequity that has never darkened their doorstep, but is forever present for Blacks.
