On the Killing of Trayvon Martin: An Antiracism Post-Mortem

I wrote these articles seven years ago, when I lived on Okinawa, Japan, residing outside the captivity of my primary discourse universe, racially hierarchical U.S. society. I reread them both from today’s perspective of the events surrounding George Floyd’s murder as well as those of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, a lens that gives my articles a fresh and more meaningful focus on the cognate issues of institutionalized racism. I edited them for clarity, preserving the original content.

I critique our society’s dominant discourses (e.g., racism, sexism, elitism, nativism) to guard against tyranny and protect free thinking!
