Thank you Letters in Politics also for incorporating the journalistic talents of Ernesto Arce as well... I'm happy he also mentioned that we Latino Americans are as equally upset with the unjust verdict along with the African American and Caucasian American people."

AND *ASIANS* (from East to Southeast to Central to South to Southwest) AND *NATIVE PEOPLES* AND *ARABS* AND *PERSIANS* AND *PACIFIC ISLANDERS*!!:

THE JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON MOVEMENT IS TRULY AND *DEEPLY* MULTICULTURAL!!

AND ALL THOSE NON-BLACK ETHNICITIES / CULTURES DIDN'T WAIT TO GO WITH ANY OF THEIR BLACK FRIENDS FIRST!...: THEY ALL WENT OUT TO THE MAIN STREETS, SQUARES AND PLAZAS ON THEIR OWN!!

THIS IS SOMETHING *SO* DIFFERENT NOW -- EXCEPT IN THE BAY AREA AND ESPECIALLY WITH THE JUSTICE FOR OSCAR GRANT MARCHES -- IN MOVEMENTS FOR LEGAL JUSTICE FOR BLACK VICTIMS OF POLICE & WANNA-BE POLICE MURDERS.

Thank you Letters in Politics

Thank you Letters in Politics also for incorporating the journalistic talents of Ernesto Arce as well onto your program. Ernesto made sure that the Latino American perspective did not remain invisible on the airwaves; I'm happy he also mentioned that we Latino Americans are as equally upset with the unjust verdict along with the African American and Caucasian American people.

Very fine reporting from all three reporters ,'Davey D', Mitch Jeserich, and Ernesto Arce!!!

This should not be police

This should not be police issue. What we see is a failure to provide venues for protestors to express their justified outrage against an unjust system. The major cities in the US should have organized events and forums to allow citizens from wherever they come from to discuss and even strategize solutions – in other words this should have been a learning/teaching moment!

Brother Davey D needs to be appauded, but he has not gone far enough in calling out the major US Cities to help citizens get their message out of reconciliation on race relations. If African-Americans are here to stay, then it becomes imperaitve that an educational process begin along this line. And if we need help, then African-Americans now need, and have needed for some time, to present our case to the United Nations and the International Community. This is a long standing greivance and it seems that each generation has to relearn this lesson.

Thank you.
