Verdict shows there is still much work to be done

Verdict shows there is still much work to be doneLast week a Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin. As a father of two black boys, a leader in this community, and a citizen in this nation, I am saddened and deeply concerned by the verdict in the case.

This verdict illustrates how the deep-rooted ugliness of bias can be masked in a system that rarely protects those who it was not designed to serve. When you consider the many advancements we have witnessed in our lifetime, it is disappointing that our country is not as far ahead as we would hope. These actions confirm our work is far from over and we must continue to persist every day to achieve equality for all.
