Why can't we just get along. A young man died, I am a Mother, that could have been my child, or anyone's child. Karen

Beverl Seger? Is one of those people to be ignored on the internet. People like Him/her are here to get their own frustrations (and crazy) out. Note the times of the posts, Saturday 2 am all through the morning into the next afternoon, sleep much??? This is a sad story and slandering him after being MURDERED is simply not cool. Black or White. Its just sad. He was near his home. We should all feel unafraid near our homes, in a fair world. I feel that way everytime I read about a shooting in the neighborhood no matter what their background. RIP.

Eliana Ricci, again I understand that whites would like to have this conversation without discussing race, you are the victims of privilege. Just because 'media' cares more about the deaths of whites doesn't mean that you do, right? Well why do you think this thread has so many comments? Because a white man died. Why do you think that people in foreign countries come to America thinking blacks are 'ghetto thieves.' Yes you may not work at the news stations but you receive the privilege of getting this higher class light shined upon you. What have you done to change that? Sure you sympathize with Treyvon and Rodney but so what. Let's take it beyond dialogue and put it to action. I don't hate whites nor do I want to see anyone die but just know that my priority is black people, sorry if that hurts your feelings.

I believe it is human nature to care for people that show appreciation and let's face it NYPD does not get much of that in Bed-Stu. That is why R.J. feels that her priority is taking care of Blacks and that is ok, ignorant? yes, does it show lack of culture and travel abroad? yes. I have had the honor to work with Blacks of other countries, like Ugandans and others as well. They never had an issue with Whites, or ever had anything racially negative to say about Whites, but they did speak poorly of the American Blacks they have encountered. They had the same concerns about American blacks as some of the stereotypes that float around in America. I think Blacks in America believe that Whites dislike the color of their skin, that is ridiculous, I think What Whites, Asians, Hispanics don't like is the poor display of etiquette and social awareness the culture displays towards others, very insulated. Somehow American Blacks truly believe they live in struggle, but somehow the Ugandans that I have worked with and that really do live in struggle, are amazing people full of love, compassion and understanding. They take their pride and self worth very seriously and never, ever mention that they are proud of being Black, but rather proud of their accomplishments. I found that very inspiring and it made me aware of many things about the Black culture in America. I have a better understanding now. I still don't understand what being proud of being White, or Black means.
