How Old Are You?    

It Doesn't Matter!   


Trayvon Martin has no age, if he is an African-American male.


"I would be reluctant to call the police, because when they came I would be considered a suspect even though I was the one who made the call," my beloved brother told me years ago. I find that quite interesting because I know that my brother is one of those

My beloved brother

naturally good people. He doesn't smoke, do drugs, use profanity, and is committed to his wife and daughter. Yet, along with so many other African-American men my brother knows there is a code of conduct for survival that they adhere to that their ethnic counterparts do not.


In the wake of Trayvon Martin's death and the hysteria surrounding it, I couldn't help but reflect on those comments my brother shared. That could have easily been my brother, my nephew, my friend, or yours as well as your son or husband. Suspicion of African-American males is not age-specific.


This is just another example that there continues to be a disparity between justice for African-Americans and justice for others. I've had conversations with young, middle-aged and older African-American men who make it a point not to be on the streets after dark. It is a safety habit for them. Not just being cautious of the criminal element that lurks, but equally cautious because they know the pigmentation of their skin can cause them to be harassed by authorizes and others as they are viewed suspiciously simply for existing.


Wow! What pressure just to be alive . . . just to be able to live life with dignity.


Trayvon experienced it. Yes, he even lost his life for it. He was only 17-years old. When we stroll through history there are so many names, some we know like Medgar Evans and Emmet Till and some we don't.


One thing is for sure, there is a cancer in America that is being neglected. As long as the racial divide is not addressed in this country, we will continue to have these vigilante-like acts of injustice waged against innocent victims. As long as this cancer is left unaided, African-American men will never be able to freely experience the American dream of life, liberty and justice for all. Regardless of their economic status or age, they are always considered suspect because of the pigmentation of their skin.


"Can't we all just get along?" Remember that question that victim Rodney King asked years ago. Yet, that question continues to loom in the horizon desperately seeking an answer. Going unanswered it resonates that we as a nation have not learned how to get along and to celebrate the differences that make us one.


". . . one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all," will continue to be mere words in our Pledge of Allegiance as long as there are a group of people who these words do not fully protect. My beloved brother and every other African-American male have yet to have complete faith in them.

And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. Acts 10:28 (KJV)


Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. Acts 10:34-35 (KJV)


But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature . . . for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. 1 Sam 16:7 (KJV)


And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. Luke 10:27 (KJV)




Father, We live in a world that continues to be racially divided. Unfortunately, these differences continue to cause unnecessary confusion and mayhem. Bless me to rise above racism and to love my fellowman as I love myself. I ask you to remember Trayvon Martin's family and George Zimmerman. Trayvon has physically lost his life, but George's life has been changed forever. Bless those who self-appoint themselves as keepers of their communities, to exercise judgment and not be lead by stereotypes that can skew their judgment and result in a senseless tragedy. Bless each of us to do our part in creating a harmonious society where we can live, work, play and worship as we celebrate the differences that make us one nation under Your watchful eyes. Amen.
