In a speech to the NAACP, Attorney General Eric Holder said that Trayvon Martin's death brought him back to his own experiences as a young black man and inspired him to sit down his own son to discuss racial issues.

Twice, Holder said, he was pulled over on the New Jersey Turnpike and had his car searched "when I’m sure I wasn't speeding." Another time, he was stopped by police "while simply running to a catch a movie, at night in Georgetown.

"I was at the time of that last incident a federal prosecutor," Holder said to laughs from the audience.
