We do know this much for certain: Had the races been reversed, the usual suspects would have had much to say. White teens beat up an elderly black veteran and leave him for dead? White teens shoot a talented black athlete visiting from another country?I make these observations not to further exacerbate a problem but in the hope that we can stop this craziness before things escalate. The conversation about race that pundits keep insisting we need to have should end where it began. Maybe Obama can remind Americans that if we had sons and fathers, they'd look like Christopher Lane and Delbert Belton, as well as Trayvon Martin.

"If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon."

red lines in the Syrian sand, the president splashed red paint across the American landscape:

In so saying, he essentially gave permission for all to identify themselves by race with the victim or the accused. How sad especially today, on the 50th anniversary of the march Martin Luther King Jr. led on Washington, that even the president resorts to judging not by the content of one's character but by the color of his skin the antithesis of the great dream King articulated with those words.

These are all true statements if we identify ourselves and each other only by the color of our skin, which, increasingly seems to be the case including our own president.

In my 20s, I conducted an experiment when I had the opposite problem. No clerk would help me. It occurred to me that my ratty jeans and T shirt might be the problem, so I went Converse Pumps Womens

Nothing is fair about profiling, but one's treatment by a stranger is not always necessarily linked to one's racial or ethnic history. Sometimes it's just you.

Barack Obama helped lead the way when he identified himself with Trayvon Martin, shot by George Zimmerman in the neighborhood watch catastrophe with which all are familiar.

Even today, I am followed when I go to the second floor of a boutique in Georgetown. Apparently, store policy requires that an attendant be upstairs when a shopper is.

The killings leading the news the past several days have been horrific in their apparent randomness. Were they racially motivated?
