“George Zimmerman ruined not only the Martins’ lives, but his own. He may not be in jail now, but he will surely be imprisoned for the rest of his life. And it is not because he is “evil” or “racist” (he may or may not be those things, I don’t know), but because his choices that night were constrained by a corrupt and violent culture that severely limited his “choices.” -Brett Russell Coleman

“I once asked her why we never learned to speak spanish. It was with saddened eyes, head down, when she told me “It was because I was spanked in school for not knowing how to speak English.” Spanked as in literally spanked on the hand with rulers for not speaking English as a 5 year old.”

Black and White: Vestiges of Biracialism in American Discourse

Via Scoop.itMixed American Life
Great article, now available for free download.   “During the early years of the republic, the identity “American” was made white. As evidenced by Noah Webster’s first American Dictionary, after the Revolutionary War the concept African American became unthinkable to Euro-Americans. Webster defined “American” as “a native of America; originally applied to the aboriginals, or copper-colored races, found here by the Europeans; but now applied to the descendants of Europeans born in America.” In his dictionary, Webster represented “American” as white and explicitly excluded Indians while ignoring Americans of African descent.”
