8. Has anyone linked to this yet?

http://www.urbancusp.com/newspost/the-bullet-next-time-an-open-letter-to-my-unborn-black-son/

First two paragraphs:
When confronted by an armed individual, assume that this person is the police. As such, begin by placing your hands behind your head, fingers interlaced. This will assure that in the eventuality that you are shot and executed, there will be minimum opportunity for analysts and pundits to later ponder if you were the aggressor. Keeping your fingers behind your head is key as it prevents your fingerprints from ending up on your assailant or his weapon. If at all possible, turn your back on the person (whom we will assume always to be the police). In this manner, you will be shot in the back, another telltale sign that you were the victim.

You will not survive your encounter, so it is important to remember to show investigators, the courts, and critics alike that you were in fact the victim. This will be difficult as the assumption is ever-present that somehow, in some way, you did something wrong. That perhaps there was something different you could have, should have done. Perhaps you should have worn something different or walked in a less suspicious manner. I assure you, my son, this is not the case. Regardless of your actions, you were not meant to survive. All you can hope for is an easier postmortem investigation. This will be of some comfort to your mother and I as we cope through your loss, and so I ask you to follow these directions carefully.


It gets better* from there.

* more angry, more despairing, more poetic

9. Stand Your Ground Laws Take Us Backwards

....to a time when anyone justified anything they did and got away with it.

Only one side of the story is told.

Thank you for posting!

11. The one showing a mother hugging her son...

...is EXACTLY where my wife and I are now with our almost 12 year old African American son.

Zimmerman was hunting. If he's allowed to get away with it, more will follow. I haven't even ben in a fist fight since I was 15 (I'll be 57 in June), but if this were to happen to my son I think I'd be seriously inclined towards a violent act of revenge against the Zimmerman wannabe.

PEACE!
