HARTFORD, Conn., U.S.A. – What I see in this exhibit is not right. I’m part white and I don’t know why the people did this.
And what happened to that kid, Trayvon Martin, wasn’t right.I thought that guy killed him because of his skin color.

All the racism is just too crazy. I know some racist things are still happening.

Things” at the Mark Twain House and Museum.
