Another great moment in post-racial America

Some time back we learned that, in the state of Florida, you can grab a gun, chase down and threaten a teenager who’s doing nothing to you or anybody else, then when said teenager tries to defend himself you can gun him down and somehow make a claim of “self-defense” that tortures the concept of “defense” beyond all meaning. Today we learned that, as long as the teenager is carrying a bag of candy, is wearing the wrong kind of clothes, and, oh, is black, you’ll be able to kill him without suffering any legal consequences. God bless Amercia.
