Maybe the Mothers should tell them to call the police or their parents if they think they are being followed,(especially if one of their parents are only a few houses away) instead of calling a girlfriend and making racist remarks.

Maybe the Mothers should tell their sons if they have a chance, to run to a safe place and seek help, especially if there is a house right there that they can run to rather than confront the person. Maybe they should tell their sons that even if someone IS following them, NOT to attack them, not to fight UNLESS they are physically attacked first. Seriously there is no shame in running away from a confrontation or a situation in which you feel threatened - not everything HAS to be a fight or get violent. In fact, nothing should ever get violent

Trayvon wasn't "fighting back" - he started the violence - Zimmerman following him, while possibly scary was NOT violent and did not merit violence in response. However those who feel Trayvon had a right to "defend" that way from Zimmerman do not seem to feel Zimmerman then had a "right" to defend himself from Travons attack...why is that?
