Pulitzer Prize-winning author, poet and activist Alice Walker joins us talk about the death of Trayvon Martin. "It's a symptom of our illness," Walker says. "We are a very sick country, and our racism is a manifestation of our illness and the ways we don't delve into our own wrecks... As a country we have never looked to see where we went off the trail... [Trayvon Martin] was ours. And I don't just mean black people, but all of ours. These children are our future and they have to be protected."
