Is George Zimmerman innocent of murdering Trayvon Martin? Of course not. But do not forget that justice has little to do with matters of the law. The…talking heads on TV, radio, and online, who are offering up commentary on the case, have for the most part, missed one essential and obvious fact about it. There is not one “justice” system in the United States...There are multiple ones which reflect a given person’s race and class. Poor people do not get rich people’s justice. Black and brown folks do not get white folks’ justice. The data on incarceration rates and disparate sentencing offers overwhelming support for those claims.
