A reader from Philadelphia re-tweeted me this sign from a protest there.
Note Vincent Chin’s name at the bottom of the sign.
It’s significant. Trayvon’s family may ultimately take the same road Chin took to seek justice: a criminal case followed by a civil rights case. But as followers of the Chin story know, the Martin’s could find the same pitfalls. Bottom line: there’s simply no guarantee of justice at the end of that long road.
