(NNPA)–“How to get away with murder in America – Step 1 – Carry a weapon at all times, Step 2 – Use it to shoot a Black male after you stalk them; Step 3 – Always claim self defense; Step 4 – Lie and keep lying, because Trayvon Benjamin Martin or anyone that looks like him has no right to defend himself. Not in Sanford Florida and not at Fruitville Station. It is a shame that we live in a country where we a young Black man cannot get a fair trial, especially if he is the DEAD victim,” wrote Bertha Lewis, President of The Black Institute, in a statement Saturday.
