HARTFORD, Conn., U.S.A. – What I see in this exhibit is not right. I’m part white and I don’t know why the people did this.

And what happened to that kid, Trayvon Martin, wasn’t right.


I thought that guy killed him because of his skin color.
All the racism is just too crazy. I know some racist things are still happening.
