The shooting death of Trayvon Martin has resulted in many African Americans asking — a la Yogi Berra — “Deja vu, all over again?” Studies have shown numerous whites view the killing as an aberration while blacks see the shooting as more of the same behavior black men have come to know only too well. Such was the case in 1995, when NFL star O.J. Simpson was exonerated of murder. Camera shots from around the nation depicted blacks applauding the verdict while whites were visibly dismayed and incredulous. Race continues to be the 500-pound gorilla in the living room few wish to discuss.
