Not exactly. You're in a unique position. Your race is in charge in this point in history. It's a personal decision amongst individuals of your race as to how they live their lives with this knowledge. All human beings have the capability for good or evil and perceive God differently. I think her pov was "some whites" think it's their God given right not only to rule, but that they're right about everything (even when they're wrong) and they can justify just about anything (Trayvon Martin Murder) by changing the rules, i.e. Zimmerman was the victim and Martin the aggressor. We, as a race, know that if the situation was reversed, Martin would have been held to the following:<quoted text>

Religion is basically no more than "man" interpreting and attempting to follow scripture in living and in worship.
But because we are mere humans, we don't always get it right.
Her racist tenor was not lost on me either! If that helps!
I think we we're saying the same thing. I said "we don't always get it right". Isn't that the same thing you're saying.
1. Why did you approach him?
2. After calling for the police, why didn't you follow their instructions or advice?
3. Why did you follow him in his car?
4. You were stalking him, weren't you?
5. What made you suspicious?
6. Did you try to grab hold of him or apprehend him in any way?
7. Why were you armed?
8. Did the "victim" have any weapons other than his fist?
9. What made you decide to use deadly force?
10. Have you engaged in this type of behavior before?
Once the jury heard this, one would reasonably presume that Martin had "provoked" the deadly incident by following Zimmerman, on foot and in his car against police advice. They would have decided if Martin had obeyed the instructions of the police and allow them to handle it, this situation could have been avoided. With all these factors taken into consideration, Trayvon Martin would have been found guilty as charged.
This is what would have happened and has happened when juries or the American Justice System is applying Justice fairly by an impartial, non-biased jury (smirk) on a black man, that is, but apparently not a white man because they simply cannot see things from another perspective and that gives them a "God" like feeling like they're right, when they're not, so God must be white, at least according to them. That is what the professor meant.
