Something a little different today at Souciant. I explore the verdict in the case of Michael Dunn, a middle-age. middle class white man who killed a 17-year old black kid. Racism in the US may have gotten better, but not nearly as much as we’d like to think.
Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman and Stand Your Ground laws. There’s lots to learn from all of this, but one lesson is how this horrific incident and the awful verdict reflects the US’ and many other countries’ approach to foreign affairs regarding security and defense. I explore at Souciant this week.
