"Justice for Trayvon" Protests & the March on Washington: A New Chance

Dan La Botz explains that the recent hundreds of "Justice for Trayvon" marches and demonstrations and the March on Washington reflect a deep desire to end racism - economic, social, and political once and for all. Economic inequality stands at the center of the country's racial problems. Dan beleives that we may be seeing the beginning of a working class movement, of which African Americans will be a leading component, that will fight for jobs for all, for free public education from K to PH.D, and for free universal health care. The 1963 march called for jobs and racial justice. This time the March on Washington also highlights school closings, foreclosures, and the acquittal of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed unarmed African-American teenager Trayvon Martin and sparked national outrage.
