As a black man in America, Shaka Berry, 38, says he has been stopped by police for no apparent reason. He says he is desensitized to news about the deaths of black men.
But when Berry, a telecommunications salesman who lives in Washington, D.C., learned details of the Trayvon Martin case, he said he was moved to tears. He was disturbed about news reports that Trayvon, 17, of Sanford, Fla., was fatally shot Feb. 26 while returning from a run to 7-Eleven for iced tea and Skittles.
Berry was disheartened that shooter George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer described as white by police, had not been arrested. So Berry expressed himself like many others on Facebook: He posted a photo of himself in a hooded sweatshirt — what Trayvon was wearing when he died.
