Tonight’s the night… only few #Dexter posters are left…
Trayvon Martin poster on Flickr.
My Trayvon Martin poster has been making the rounds online a lot this week. It’s weird that when I made it a year ago, it was really about the lack of arrest in the case. At the time it had been over a month since the shooting and George Zimmerman was yet to be charged with any crime. Now it seems to have taken on a different message of a larger injustice. It’s weird how the imagery hasn’t changed, yet the events surrounding it have changed its overall meaning.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
"DOMA undermines both the public and private significance of state-sanctioned same-sex marriages; for it tells those couples, and all the world, that their otherwise valid marriages are unworthy of federal recognition. This places same-sex couples in an unstable position of being in a second-tier marriage. The differentiation demeans the couple, whose moral and sexual choices the Constitution protects, see Lawrence, 539 U. S. 558, and whose relationship the State has sought to dignify. And it humiliates tens of thousands of children now being raised by same-sex couples. The law in question makes it even more difficult for the children to understand the integrity and closeness of their own family and its concord with other families in their community and in their daily lives."
