The Trayvon Martin case has been nothing short of heartbreak from the very beginning. Regardless of what anyone believes about Trayvon's past, his innocence or George Zimmerman's, the fact remains that a teenager is dead. I honestly didn't think I would get emotionally broken up more than I was over the story that Rachel Jeantel's friendship with Martin stemmed from the fact he was one of the only people who never picked on her. The story painted such a tragic picture of friendship and two people whose lives will never be the same.
Then came this week's testimonies and reactions from Trayvon Martin's parents to leave me and so much of America floored. On Friday morning, Sybrina Fulton took the stand to talk about her son. As part of her testimony she had to identify her child's screams in his finals seconds of life. Later in the day, Tracy Martin had to sit in court as the medical examiner, Dr Bao, explained how Trayvon died in severe pain and was alive for minutes after getting shot in the chest.
Essentially, Friday almost as much as the day Trayvon was shot was any parent's nightmare. Trayvon's parents had to come face to face with their son's murder while Fulton got questioned over whether or not her son actually deserved to get killed. Tracy had to sit in the same room as the man who shot his son in the chest, unable to retaliate or let the rage he has to be feeling out.
Yes, this is the worst imaginable day for a parent. But it's one the parents of an African-American child has been conditioned to accept as a possibility....

The realization that they raised a feral thug should have preped them for this reality.
Does The Guardian know what’s happening in Chicago on any given night?
because..... when you try to lie about the guy being a racist, and make up false charges, you're bound to come up with nothing but "heartache".
Worst Nightmare ONLY if you raise your chillren to be gangsta types and, shall we say, unruly....usually, also, it’s blacks killing blacks, and NO one cares....What a POS this writer is.
There are people so depraved and evil that the world is much better off without them.
I suspect Travon Martin was one of those. Maybe there was something good about him, one never knows for sure but it sure looks like he was a thug.
The fact that Zimmerman saved his own life by eliminating this person from earth should be celebrated instead of his being prosecuted by a crooked system.
And why is that?
Black kids get killed every day by black kids. I doubt their biggest fear is a Latino in a white neighborhood.
PURPLE DRANK! TRY IT YO
OK, so the guy has a heart. No common sense and didn’t seem at all concerned with the facts.
Now that 200 people have been shot in one weekend in Chicago we should be hearing calls for action, right?

Yeah, because never in the history of the United States have any white parents ever lost a child due to being shot. /SAR This is one BS article.
