hey well at least they are trying to do a good thing even though i think that they should have kept an eye on their kid and not have let him wander off into a strange neighborhood alone while wearing a hoodie while he was black !!! violence is bad and even those black people know that after their son got killed !!!

They're just trying to make a buck off of their son's death.

Trayvon's parents are honorable people, and I feel sorry for them. It is not Trayvon's family I scorn, but the hypocrisy in the African-American community. So many black thugs commit vicious crimes against whites, Asians, Hispanics, yet the hogwash media makes it look as if blacks are always the victim.

It's black politics that I despise, not black people.

That's grossly unfair. While I am fed up with con artists who milk these tragedies for political exposure, these people lost a son. Trayvon's parents have behaved with remarkable dignity whereas Zimmerman has behaved with arrogance and slipperiness. A judge revoked his bond because he concluded Z. had been less than honest with the courts.

Whether Zimmerman acted in self-defense or is guilty, these people believe in their cause. No parent should have to bury a child.
