Last month, I took my daughter to Florida to celebrate her birthday at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. But thanks to my friend, we were also able to visit Sea World since she had discount passes since she is a Sea World season ticket holder.
I, too, am the mother of a 17 year old black young man. Who wears hoodies, drinks ice tea, and likes Skittles. This could have easily been my son, killed because he was supposedly of a threatening nature. Killed because he was walking while black.
It’s not going to be an easy ride for Casey, who has been vilified (and rightfully so) as a woman who got away with not only murder, but the murder of her own flesh and blood. The jury clearly stated their opinion about Casey and set her free but public opinion says otherwise. So what will she do now?
