PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Protests have sprung up across the country in response to the recent acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin. The criminal legal system did not judge whether or not the death was caused by racial profiling, that’s now the job of civil law.
Dr. Alveda C. King is the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and daughter of civil rights activist Reverend A. D. William King Sr. and Naomi Barber King. She is the Director of the African-American Outreach for Priests for Life.
She urges people to remember her families motto of judging by content of character, not by skin color, or clothing.
