So the verdict is out but New York City is silent right now. Why aren't we taking to the streets in NYC? We need to be out on the streets pushing for the end of all racial profiling across this country. If Zimmerman had not racially profiled Trayvon, Trayvon would be alive today! NYC maintains its stop and frisk laws that disproportionately affect black and brown people. These policies say that just being black itself is a crime/is a threat. Occupy Wall Street needs to lead the charge!
