Happily, not only did I have nothing to fear on either count, but the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman scenario is really more of a framework for the author to hang a series of balanced, well-reasoned, highly accessible thoughts on how to navigate through and deal with fear and prejudice of any kind, than a rehashing of the actual events.
There is no unproductive descent into blaming anyone. There is a laudable attempt to understand the viewpoints of both sides directly involved, with the conclusion that there was undoubtedly both some righteousness and some blame for both Martin and Zimmerman...and more importantly, there is an exploration of where each of them might have made understandable mistakes and how a series of emotionally-based or poor choices led to a tragedy for everyone involved. Lest you miss the implications--the author then points out that while different situations may call for different decisions, the ripples from choices you make have far-reaching, as well as immediate consequences.
I was taken with the author's differentiation between racism and racial profiling--and even more, with his suggestion that education has the power to disarm others. (In fact, I am anxious to discuss this notion with family and friends--but here, will simply say that in my opinion, that section alone is sufficient reason to purchase this book.Read more ›
The topic of Trayvon Martin is a backdrop to great life advise to keep your center, perspective and see the world for what it is. Be aware of the world's limitations, keep perspective of it's shortcomings and never be a victim!
