Now That George Zimmerman Has Been Acquitted, What Will Black Mothers Tell Their Sons?

Now that George Zimmerman has been acquitted for the murder of Trayvon Martin, what will black”mothers tell their sons? Much has been written about how the verdict and how racial profiling affects young African-American men, but little has been written about how it affects fearful African-American mothers struggling to cope with the verdict.

Watch the video, post your thoughts and share.

  2. What should they tell their sons? “If someone is following you on public property, don’t turn around and assault them. If you spend your life hitting peoples’ heads into the ground, one day one of them will have a gun and one day one of those people will shoot you.”

    • Oh, that’s right, because black men are to remain submissive and docile even when followed by a total stranger, that is the only way folks like you feel comfortable. Apparently, you did not watch the video, that is quite obvious and unfortunate, it definitely illustrates the mentality of people like you.

      • If ‘please, don’t hit heads into the ground’ is being “submissive” then, obviously, the vast majority of the world is already submissive. I’m submissive, then, because I haven’t assaulted anyone. You’re submissive, then, because you haven’t assaulted anyone.

        Maybe the whole world would be better if black men, white men, whatever men–and women!–were “submissive.” If I have to prove to myself that I’m not submissive by going around hitting heads then that’s not a world I want to be a part of.

  3. It’s clear that there is a large divide running smack down the middle of this thing! Some people are so indignant at comments reflecting any hints of ‘race’ that they cringe at the idea that they themselves could be profiled as a ‘racist’! That is really funny because I wouldn’t have any idea they are ‘racist’ unless they actually said so! But just because they disagree with an analogy or comment they do not really have to explain anything, especially going as far as to insinuate that…you’re wrong for thinking that way! hmmm…I wonder what do they call that? So maybe those people lack a perspective that is inclusive of all relevant notions! Surely they do not think or believe that everyone should have their perspective…exclusively! Wouldn’t that be kind of dictatorial? I posit that this is what it has come to; fucking animal farm!
