Trayvon Martin, white privilege and the death of a friend

“To those of us committed to a liberal democracy, Joel Olson presented a disturbing challenge to confront. He forced us to be conscious of the mechanisms of privilege, and dared us to live in a truly equal world. He wrote, “No privilege held can compare to a world in which privilege does not exist”.

Rest in peace my friend.”
