Sene gals president concedes
electoral defeat to protege
EATONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -
Wearing hooded sweatshirts
similar to the one that Trayvon
Martin wore on the night he was
killed, many preachers and wor-
shippers echoed calls for justice
yesterday in the shooting death
of an unarmed black teenager in
Florida last month.
The one-month anniversary of
Martin's death is today. He was
shot while wearing a "hoodie" as
he walked home on a rainy night
in a gated community. The neigh-
borhood watch volunteer who
shot him, 28-year-old George
Zimmerman, is the son of a white
father and Hispanic mother, and
the demands to charge him in
Martin's slaying have grown ever
louder. He had called police to
report the hooded figure as sus-
picious'tthe 17-year-old Martin
was carrying a bag of Skittles and
a can of iced tea, talking to his
girlfriend on his cellphone.
In African-American and
other religious centers from
Florida to Atlanta, New York
and Chicago, messages from pul-
pits couldn't help but touch on a
seemingly avoidable tragedy that
continues to be rife with more
questions than answers. But
while the call continued for the
arrest of Zimmerman, there were
also pleas to use the incident to
spark a larger movement.
"How do we turn pain into
power?" the Rev. Jesse Jack-
son asked a standing-room only
congregation of hundreds while
preaching at Macedonia Mission-
ary Baptist Church in Eatonville,
Fla., saout 20 miles from the site
of the Sanford shooting. "How do
we go from a moment to a move-
ment that curries favor?"
Jackson preached a sermon
entitled "The Substance of
Things Hoped For." He called
for Martin's "martyr" death to
be used as an opportunity to
revive the Civil Rights Com-
mission and draw attention to
long-standing issues. Very young
children and teens sat in the
choir behind him.
"The blood of the-innocent has
power," Jackson said to shouts of
"Amen" and loud clapping.
Jackson invoked the names
of Emmett Till, the 14-year-
old boy bludgeoned and shot to
death in Mississippi in 1955 for
supposedly whistling at a white
woman, and slain civil rights fig-
ures Medgar Evans and Martin
Luther King, Jr.
"There's power in the blood
of Emmett Till! There's power
in in the blood of Medgar Evers!
There's power in the blood of
Dr. King!" declared the 70-year-
old Jackson, who marched with
Jackson made a direct plea to
change the "Stand Your Ground"
self-defense law that many
believe authorities in Florida
used to avoid arresting him.
Amid the outcry over the lack
of charges against Zimmerman,
the Sanford police chief and
state's attorney in the case have
both stepped aside. The U.S. Jus-
tice Department has opened a
civil rights probe into the shoot-
ing, and a grand jury is scheduled
to meet April 10 to consider evi-
dence in the case.
Zimmerman's attorney has
said he believes the case falls
under Florida's stand-your-
ground law, which dictates that a
person has the right to stand his
or her ground and "meet force
with force" if attacked. Attor-
ney Craig Sonner has said Zim-
merman is not a racist.
Macky Sall's win
as fear of election
DAKAR, Senegal (AP) - Pres-
ident Abdoulaye Wade conceded
defeat to his former protege
Macky Sall late yesterday, con-
gratulating him several hours
after polls closed when prelimi-
nary results showed the opposi-
tion candidate had trounced the
Wade called Sall around 9:30
p.m. (2130 GMT) yesterday to
congratulate him on his victory,
state television reported. The
move alleviated fears that Wade
would attempt to stay in office
after 12 years or would challenge
the runoff results.
Even before Wade conceded,
Sall's supporters began celebrat-
ing in the streets of the capital,
singing and marching through
downtown Dakar. Some even
danced on the roofs of moving
vehicles, and one man did a cart-
wheel amid the traffic near the
Place de l'Independance.

Sociologist Hadiya Tandian
said that Wade's concession
washes away the wounds of a
violent election season, which
left at least six people dead and
tarnished the country's reputa-
"This is a great victory for
Senegal - it shows the maturity
of our democracy," Tandian said.
"It shows that the Senegalese
believe in their voter IDs, that
a voter card can change some-
thing, can make a difference. It
shows that our long democratic
heritage continues to live in us
day by day."
Senegal's democratic roots
run deep, and many feared
Wade would notcconcede defeat
and in the process muddy Sen-
egal's image as one of the only
established democracies in
Whereas most African
countries began holding elec-
tions post-independence in
the 1960s, the Senegalese first
cast their ballots 164 years ago
starting in 1848 when France
gave its territory the right to
elect a deputy to the French
At a midnight press con-
ference at a Dakar hotel, Sall
offered few details on the con-
versation he had with Wade
earlier in the evening. Instead,
he praised the voters and said
he would be the president for
"Tonight, a new era begins
for Senegal," Sall told the
hundreds of journalists and
euphoric supporters who
crammed into the venue to
hear him speak.
There was no immediate
comment from Wade himself,
though his spokesman Seri-
gne Mbacke Ndiaye confirmed
the president's concession of
"Senegal, through a trans-
parent election, just proved
once again that it remains a
great democracy, a great coun-
try," he said in a press release.
Wade first took office in
2000 after his predecessor con-
ceded in a historic moment for
Senegal. He easily won re-elec-
tion in 2007, but has seen his
popularity suffer amid soaring
costs of living and unemploy-
ment. When he cast his ballot
last month in the first round
of balloting, some voters even
booed him at the poll shouting:
"Old man, get lost."
His image also was tar-
nished after he began giving
an increasingshare of power to
his son Karim, who was deri-
sively called "the Minister of
the Sky and the Earth" after he
was handed control of multiple
ministries including infra-
structure and energy.
