I've written (sarcastically) how nice it is that in the wake of the killing of Trayvon Martin, some conservatives are suddenly very concerned about black-on-black violence. The actual voiced argument goes that blacks (and liberals) only care about black-on-black violence when it comes at the hands of a white person. Of course that's not true. Just because you refuse to hear something doesn't mean other people aren't shouting.
I wanted to do a post listing some of the protests over the years. Because there really are a countless number of them. But I was too lazy to actually do the grunt work. Luckily, over on his blog, Ta-Nehisi Coates did it for me. It's worth a look.
And if you've never heard of any of these protests, might I suggest you ask yourself, "why not?" Perhaps you want to blame the media. Or perhaps you don't care. That's your right, I suppose. But it's not your right to say other people don't care just because you're ignorant.
