Jackie and Trayvon

Jackie Robinson's role in a major incident in the history of this country's desegregation is pretty well known.  Who would think that Jackie Robinson would be able to provide some incredible insight on the nature of Sanford, Florida, the place where Trayvon Martin was gunned down?

Here is a link to an absolutely amazing story from Digby about Robinson's role in integrating major league baseball that involves Sanford.  Please read it- I know you will find it fascinating.

Great Jackie Robinson story. I was a big Dodger fan as a young boy, in the Brooklyn years. Without giving it any thought at all I loved the team, all of them. I'm sure that it was a good lesson for me, and that it helped me.
