Blacks interpret the violence in historical context. Well, some, maybe. Not the black woman who works for me. She is thinking about the here and now. A black co worker joked once that this woman is prejudiced. Against whom? I asked. "Black men" was the answer. The woman was not thinking on the president's lofty plane. She is just down to earth, unconcerned with historical context, thinking of when she was car jacked, stalked, and robbed of her purse with a gun pointed at her head. They here and now context is that all three perps looked like Trayvon. She worries about them, not about people who look like George.
