The senseless murders of Florida teenagers Jordan Davis and Trayvon Martin speak to the daily realities of being black in America. Appearing on Melissa Harris-Perry alongside professors William Jelani Cobb and Pedro Noguera, Nation writer Mychal Denzel Smith discussed the burden of violence that young black men face. "I walk around in this young, black male body and I understand that it causes fear, it causes a reaction, it causes police to look at me more carefully. It could kill me."
