The exploitation of Trayvon Martin
Posted by Laura
I know, you think there's nothing more to be said or written about the hucksters who have inserted themselves into the Trayvon Martin story. But when Shelby Steele, one of the most incisive writers on race and culture decides to analyze the situation, it's always must-reading. Here's an excerpt: Trayvon's sad fate clearly sent a quiver of perverse happiness all across America's civil rights establishment, and throughout the mainstream media as well. His death was vindication of the "poetic truth" that these establishments live by. Poetic truth is like poetic license where one breaks grammatical rules for effect. Better to break the rule than lose the effect. Poetic truth lies just a little; it bends the actual truth in order to highlight what it believes is a larger and more important truth.

The civil rights community and the liberal media live by the poetic truth that America is still a reflexively racist society, and that this remains the great barrier to black equality.
