CNN wants to make out the killing of 17-year-old Jordan Davis and the first-degree murder trial of his killer, Michael Dunn, to be an irrational dispute over loud music. How else do you explain the headline, “Loud music' murder trial begins” from Feb. 5? CNN is hardly alone, as reporters and pundits try to downplay comparisons to the George Zimmerman trial and make the Dunn trial about anything except racism.

African American unemployment rates are still twice that of whites, while Blacks graduate from college at half the rate of whites. The typical income of an African American household is 40% less than a white household, while their wealth is 95% less. Black men in particular are arrested, convicted and jailed by the ‘injustice’ system, so that almost one third are in or have been through prisons. And Black youth like Trayvon Martin continue to be gunned down by racist cops and vigilantes while their killers walk free. The root of the problem is that the U.S. was founded on the exploitation and oppression of Black people.

The law, the police and the courts are not about justice, they are about protecting the property, privilege and power of the monopoly capitalists, the richest 1% who own and control the corporations and government that dominate the economy and society. They are part and parcel of the national oppression that African Americans face: the all-around, social, political and economic inequality of Black people face as an oppressed nationality in the U.S. The huge protests across the county that have mobilized hundreds of thousands of people, including large numbers of Black and Brown youth, are a great development. Everything possible should be done to build this struggle.
