Let Black Kids Just Be Kids

George Zimmerman admitted at his 2012 bail hearing that he misjudged Trayvon Martin’s age when he killed him. “I thought he was a little bit younger than I am,” he said, meaning just under 28. But Trayvon was only 17.

What may be most tragic about Mr. Zimmerman’s miscalculation is that it’s widespread. To many people, black boys seem older than they are: In one study, people overestimated their ages by 4.5 years. This contributes to a false perception that black boys are less childlike than white boys.

If you aren’t careful, the newspaper will have you hating the people who are oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing,” says Malcolm X.

The majority of newsrooms in America are run by Whites, and it is no surprise that only certain kinds of Black stories are being published. Most White people don’t understand that implicit racial bias is part of their DNA, and anything associated with Black skin is considered negative.

Jurors reached their verdict following 29 hours of deliberation, after originally telling the judge that they were deadlocked on all charges.
