It’s almost like Dem Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton is pimping St. Skittles memory for political gain.
Via The Hill:
Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) on Tuesday proposed a racial profiling bill to mark the one-year anniversary of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida.
Norton’s bill, H.R. 838, would let states apply for federal grants to create programs aimed at reducing racial profiling. These programs could include anti-racial profiling laws, maintaining data on traffic stops to check for racial bias, and training law enforcement officers.
“The Trayvon Martin tragedy did not involve a law enforcement officer, but his death reminded the country that racial profiling discrimination remains largely unaddressed,” Norton said. “The responsibility for eliminating racial profiling should begin with the federal government, especially when racial profiling happens on federally funded roads.”
