Remarkably, jurors have found Michael Dunn (white) guilty of first-degree murder for shooting to death unarmed teenager Jordan Davis (black) for the crime of listening to loud "thug music," a verdict Davis' family celebrated as giving "justice not only for Jordan, but (for) Martin (and) all the nameless faceless children that will never have a voice." Alas, their numbers keep growing, and seem likely to continue to: The Justice Department has declined to bring civil rights charges against George Zimmerman for killing Trayvon Martin, Ferguson officials aren't telling anyone squat about the killing of Michael Brown, a South Carolina trooper shot (but incredibly didn't kill) an unarmed guy for getting his license out of his car as instructed while black, and Brooklyn cops browbeat a group of unarmed kids to "get out of the neighborhood" for walking down the street while black. The lawyer for Jordan Davis' family called the Dunn guilty verdict a "shining example" of a justice system that looks, not at skin color, but "the minds and the souls and the hearts of people, of human beings."

"We know that Jordan has received his justice, we know that Jordan's life and legacy will live on for others," said McBath.

Adding to the legacy, McBath said she wants the world to know Jordan was "raised with love, he was raised with learning, he was raised with a great foundation and a love for God."

McBath remembered a story that her sister told her about Jordan, who had thanked his aunt for praying for him often.

"One day everybody is going to know who I am," Jordan's aunt told McBath.

Jordan's father thanked Jacksonville for standing up like soldiers for Jordan Davis.

"I wanted Jacksonville to be a shining example that you could have a jury made up of mostly white people, white men, to be an example to the rest of the world to stop the discriminatory practices," said Ron Davis
