Tucson for Trayvon vigil speakers hope to spark change

Saturday morning, about 100 people gathered in El Presidio Park for a day of action in honor of Trayvon Martin. The event, organized by the UA Black Student Union, was one of hundreds of vigils planned to take place throughout the nation. "We don’t want it to stop here. A lot of times we see people get enraged and angry about things like this and then it just sort of dies down," one attendee said.

‘We have to look out for people because injustice is still very much alive.’

This is very true. One example of injustice is how a “black student union” is tolerated, but if there’s ever a “white student union” then there’s outrage and accusations of racism.

White people are disenfranchised in the US?  Really?  More likely some are afraid to be treated as they think others should be.
