With all this trayvon talk going on it's a hot topic at my daughter's school of course. She's in the 11th grade. They had a big class discussion about it today and she said a girl started CRYING. No she did not know trayvon nor was she even crying about that. She was crying because "Ya'll just don't know how hard it is to be black in this country"  

confused

Parents please start teaching your kids that they experience NOTHING compared to what teens did in slavery times and/or the civil right movement times.

Yeah... we should make black people slaves again and then they'd have something to complain about. 

Who the hell are you to judge this girl's experience?? There's nothing wrong with crying. There's nothing wrong with feeling sad when a child is murdered. 

There's something wrong with your attitude.

I agree. To want sympathy because of ones skin color is what is wrong with the damn world.

I think teenagers in general have a pretty skewed idea of what suffering is.

"Sometimes it is better to be kind than right. We do not need an intelligent mind that speaks, but a patient heart that listens."
