Alice Walker, escritora, poeta y activista ganadora del premio Pulitzer, nos acompaña para hablar de la muerte de Trayvon Martin. “Es un síntoma de nuestra enfermedad”, afirma Walker. “Somos un país muy enfermo y el racismo es una manifestación de la enfermedad que padecemos y del modo en que evitamos hurgar en nuestras ruinas. Como país, somos una ruina. Y una part de esa ruina es que nunca nos detuvimos a observar dónde descarrilamos. Trayvon Martin era nuestro. Y no me refiero solamente a los negros, sino a todos. Estos niños son nuestro futuro y hay que protegerlos".
