When I first read and watched the media coverage of Trayvon Martin's death and listened to George Zimmerman's conversation with police dispatchers, I couldn't help thinking that Trayvon Martin was just the latest casualty of the myth of the "juvenile superpredator."
I am not Trayvon Martin. I am a middle-aged, middle class, overweight white guy. I am also a teacher, and in 20 years of teaching, I have seen plenty of Trayvon Martins. This type of injustice will continue until enough guys like me have had enough of it and finally say "No more."
