Well, some of the advice from parents was spot on.

Many parents are wondering what, if anything, they can do to prevent their children from becoming the next Trayvon.

Don't wear a hoodie in a strange hood. It's a start.

Actual families don’t “dialogue”.

It’s like somebody swimming in a shark tank worried about being hit by lightning.

“Several responded that because their children are African-American or Latino, they will be judged as “more dangerous” or “more aggressive” than their white counterparts.”

UH,duh..Statiscally they ARE more dangerous and more aggressive.

Try telling your kids not to have gold grills, wear hoodies covering their faces, pants hanging down and swaggering with an intimidating attitude.

“I think the perfect solution is to love your neighbor,” she said.

Did she continue with don't bash people's heads into sidewalks, don't skip school, don't "hold" stolen jewelry and burglary tools for others, don't take swings at bus drivers, and don't roam the streets when you're supposed to be grounded?

Maybe they could begin with basics, like respect legitimate authority.

It begins at home, with children respecting their parents.

25 years ago Cobb County was pretty much all White. Since then the Blacks have moved in with a vengeance. That’s why you see this “dialogue” going on.

Obey your mother and father.
Study hard.
Dress sensibly.
Speak articulately and respectfully.
Obey the law.
Choose good friends.
Don’t be out prowling through neighborhoods in the middle of the night.
Don’t pounce on community watch captains and bash their heads on the pavement.

What about the littlediscussed fact that Martin had a burglury tool at home, found by the police after the fact?

Is it usual for Cobb COounty youths to have such tolls at home? Ane wgat was Martin doing, hanging around a gated community alone after sundown, casing a house or two??Is it usual for Cob County youths to be hanging around in the dark, and in the rain alone?

I am getting out of touch I guess, when I was atthat age, I was out only on Friday o Saturdy nights and had better things t do than hang around in the darkm in the rain, alone. I was hanging with friends and having fun. But I guess the times have changed, young folk today just like to hang around in the dark alone, in the rain, peeping into windows?

The answers from parents in the crowd, made up of about 25 mostly African American and Latino individuals

So in a county of 700,000, with a 25% black population, 25 people show up? How did they handle all the traffic jams?

The most needed we all need to learn, and to profit as a people and nation is:

“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged, and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.” (Proverbs 16:6)

It seems we have a nation of children that have not been taught to fear God (honor and respect our God and Creator).

I taught for several years (in the projects) and soon learned; they believe when you are dead, and thats it. No accountability!

We must teach them that death is only the beginning of eternity! An accountability for eternity!

“Love your neighbor”? Yeah, that’d work. Or even “don’t attack your neighbor and try to beat him to death” would be fine. I doubt that we’ll hear it suggested, though. Doesn’t fit the narrative.

“That mentality that black and brown children are more criminal” is dangerous, said Angela Flores, a Marietta mother and a human services professional.

Interracial Crime
• Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
• Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Fortyfive percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
• Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
• Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

Gangs
• Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
• Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs.
• Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.

Incarceration
• Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
• Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites.
• Hispanics are three times more likely.

Will the parents of minorities teach their kids to behave?
