Rep. Brown interview sparks debate on Twitter

Yesterday, Brooke was joined by Florida Rep. Corrine Brown to discuss the controversy surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin. During the interview, Brown was asked if she and other African-American lawmakers would be as concerned about the case if Martin was not black. Brown responded by citing the case of a young white girl murdered in her district; however, she could not remember the young girl's name. The interview prompted a debate on Twitter and now, Brooke responds to the criticism.

Programming note:  Be sure to tune in for CNN's special town hall event, hosted by CNN's Soledad O'Brien.  "Beyond Trayvon" airs Friday night at 8:00 pm ET!
