Author Alice Walker On How Killing is Symptom of Unaddressed Racism

Desrciption: - Pulitzer Prize-winning author, poet and activist Alice Walker joins us talk about the death of Trayvon Martin. "It's a symptom of our illness," Walker says. "We are a very sick country, and our racism is a manifestation of our illness and the ways we don't delve into our own wrecks...

These children are our future and they have to be protected." To watch the complete daily, independent news hour, read the transcript and download the podcast, please visit FOLLOW DEMOCRACY NOW!
