Does anyone know of any events coming up to rally around the Trayvon Martin case in the Durham area?

We need to dialogue as a community...

No, about breaking down boundaries between people that cause them to immediately assume someone wearing a hooded sweatshirt is up to no good...(when every white and black kid in america wears hooded sweatshirts, whether they're on the lacrosse team or the football team)
This guy attacked a kid holding a bag of skittles and an iced tea, talking on a cell phone with his girlfriend, and claimed self-defense, because he was consumed with a stereotype-driven mindset that this kid was up to no good.

Noah,the simple fact of the matter is the black's have set them selves up for racial profiling by their behavior and by the rhetoric that is spewed out by their leaders in the press. Let's just look at what goes on in Durham. A black man shot a store owner on Broad and Guess Rd. 2 people were murdered and 3 injured in a robbery on Geer St, by a black male. There has not been a report of white men breaking into black businesses and killing anybody. There has not been a report of drive by shootings where a white male shot black children. I have never seen a group of white teens walking on the streets with their pants dragging the ground. Have you checked with the Police Dept and asked to see stats on crime in durham. I venture to say 90% of the crimes committed are done by blacks. Prove me wrong if you can.

We also know groups of BLACK men did not burst into peoples homes in the middle of the night, kidnap WHITE men and drag them out to be hung from trees like animals. Prove me wrong on that one.

They sure are doing it now!! There are too many episodes of black males busting down doors and killing occupants and doing drive by shootings etc. If you black men would stop your night crawler activities and go to bed when the rest of society does, then you would feel better the next day and maybe you could have a productive day.
