Rep. Corine Brown asked would African American lawmakers be involved in Trayvon case if he were white

Today a CNN host asked a very penetrating question of Rep. Corine Brown who is in the Congressional Black Caucus:

Would you, would your fellow African American lawmakers be as concerned about this case if Trayvon wasn’t black?

OK, I’m giving massive kudos to that host for that question. But what’s even better is what happens when Brown asserts that she in fact was very concerned when a young white female was murdered in her district, and then right before she proceeded to accuse the host of making this about race, the CNN host asks a penetrating follow up:

What was her name?

The rest you’ve got to watch. It’s brutal.
