Trayvon Martin http://kalw.org en Youth Radio: Why my neighborhood kids don't trust the system http://kalw.org/post/youth-radio-why-my-neighborhood-kids-dont-trust-system <p style="padding: 0px 0px 10px; margin-bottom: 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 16px;">I grew up in a middle-class, suburban county in New Jersey, but now I'm a twenty-something intern living in a low-income part of Washington, D.C. The realtor euphemism for such neighborhoods is “transitional,” a word that implies ongoing change. This is ironic because I feel that so many of the residents here feel as though things will never change, and will always stay the same.

I was the same age as </span>Trayvon<span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 16px;"> Martin when he was killed. It was the first shooting case that got national attention where I felt connected -- like I could relate. When I first heard the story, it seemed clear: </span>Trayvon<span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 16px;"> Martin was young and he was murdered. I thought it would be an open and shut case. As time progressed, it changed. The more information came out, the more complicated the case became. And then the verdict was announced. I wasn’t surprised. But I was emotionless. Should I be angry? Should I be sad? I felt like goop. No shape. No structure.</span></p><p> Thu, 18 Jul 2013 21:05:00 +0000 Myles Bess 30329 at http://kalw.org Youth Radio: Coming of age in the era of Oscar Grant and Trayvon Martin
