"I would hear all the time “the men who killed Sean weren’t white”, I’m sure you’ve been hearing the same thing re: George Zimmerman, I believe this is the exact definition of internalized racism. We along with other minorities are conditioned to believe that it’s OK to kill us. This has been the primary means by which we have been forced to perpetuate and “agree” to our own oppression."

Nicole Paultre Bell, in an open letter to Trayvon Martin’s parents.
