AJAMU DILAHUNT is with Black Workers for Justice in North Carolina. He was just featured in a piece in the Raleigh News and Observer and has been active in the weekly "Moral Mondays" protests, going on for several months including today at 5 p.m. He said today: "There's a widespread sense that this verdict is not justice and that it shows again that the courts are not capable of producing justice. There's also great concern about the general criminalization of black youth -- they are automatically labeled 'suspicious.' There's certainly interest in remedies -- if the Department of Justice can take action, and in changing laws like 'Stand Your Ground.' But there's wide disappointment in the rather meaningless statement that came from the White House."
