Oscar Grant, Troy Davis,
and Trayvon Martin. We know what they have in common. They were black men
killed by white men with guns- a BART cop, a death row guard, and a Crimewatch
vigilante. The second thing they had in common was that each killing was given
a certain approbation and legitimacy by the white power structure- the California judicial machine, the Georgia court system, and the Sanford, Florida
police. The details of how this occurred in each case take on new meaning as
soon as we recognize a common thread, and a common structure to each of these
killings. Speaker: Steve Martinot.
