Stereotyping young black men [Letter]

Thanks for your article on the Michael Dunn case, in which a white Florida man shot and killed a 17-year-old black teen after getting into an argument over the boy's so-called "thug" music ("The war that never ends," Feb. 18).

I have worked with young men of color who were continually perceived as thugs, even while they worked to improve their community. We must continue to work for justice.

Tammy Thomas
