Jonatha Carr Won't Face Charges for Threatening to Kill Her FAU Professor, Hitting a Guy
I watched in shock as a young black woman at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) became violent in class during a discussion on the death of the late Trayvon Martin...
The student's outburst concerns me, for it is both a symptom and accelerator of the rage being felt by millions of Americans right now.
If Jonatha were my daughter, I'd probably be upset with her right now. Her actions will likely jeopardize her future and serve as a stain on her record. But I'd be lying like a dog if I didn't admit that nearly every black person in America could not relate to at least a piece of the anger being expressed by this young woman.
