The Decline of the Civil-Rights Establishment
Black leaders weren't so much outraged at injustice as they were by the disregard of their own authority.

Shelby Steele: The Exploitation of Trayvon Martin -
April 6, 2012 | WSJ | by Shelby Steele.

The absurdity of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton is that they want to make a movement out of an anomaly. Black teenagers today are afraid of other black teenagers, not whites.

Considering the Sad, Violent Death of Trayvon Martin — Letters to the Editor -
April 4, 2012 | WSJ | Letter to the editors by Rick Nagel.

Regarding Juan Williams's "The Trayvon Martin Tragedies" (op-ed, March 28): The marchers are asking that George Zimmerman, who shot Martin, be arrested immediately and, if the facts justify, charged and tried. That goal is a narrow, short-term one, achievable through protest. Black crime, failing schools, single parenthood in the black community and the rap culture's pervasive influence are far more difficult issues for policy makers and cannot be redressed in the short term, certainly not through marches.

Mr. Williams reinforces the image of a dysfunctional black culture pervaded by crime, illegitimacy, poverty and ignorance in the guise of decrying it. That is not the image that I have of the thousands of black students I taught and knew in my 36-year teaching career. They are entrepreneurs, fund managers, attorneys, teachers, social-service providers, carpenters and hospital administrators. They are not out on the street committing crimes or in prison. They are not collecting welfare. Rather, they are contributing to the well-being of the communities in which they live; they are working to support their families, and they are doing all they can to see that their values become those of their children.

Press Ignores Routine Black Success Stories
April 4, 2012 | WSJ | Letter to the editor by Uwe Siemon-Netto.
Rick Nagel's response (Letters, March 31) to Juan Williams's "The Trayvon Martin Tragedies" provides a sad testimony of the current state of journalism. Why do we read and hear so little of those black "entrepreneurs, fund managers, attorneys, teachers" who once studied under Mr. Nagel and similar teachers?

The Trayvon Martin Tragedies
The recent killing of Trayvon Martin needs more investigation. But where's the outrage over the daily scourge of black-on-black crime?
