Trayvon Martin and the Irony of American Justice...
If you only read one thing on Trayvon Martin, read Trayvon Martin and the Irony of American Justice by Ta-Nehisi Coates in The Atlantic.
Also worth a gander is How Laissez-Faire Racism Explains The Trayvon Martin Case by John Halpin over at ThinkProgress.
If you are looking for a book dealing with some of the systemic issues I think this case has brought to the surface check out The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness
