Racism, Injustice and Explaining America to My Daughter
This article is an example of racial profiling and injustice against Black Americans in the U.S. This article shows that justice has not been established for African-Americans, using the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, whose killer obviously wasn't convicted because Trayvon was black.

This movie theater shooting occured when a man was "fatally shot for texting in a Florida movie theater." This shows how often crime occurs, and how it's not enforced as much as it should be.
