PrYSM skit on racial profiling at the RI State House

The killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida and the fact that his killer remains free one month later has focused attention on the reality of racial profiling.  It is a legacy of the racism that is in the fibers of our culture.  It has many faces, from crossing the street to  avoid a bunch of teens to police stopping and frisking youth of color on a regular basis.
