This was not a "kid", Robert Brown, this was a 30 year old man.

Murdered? Way to strong a word and not appropriate!

Obviously "concerned" is a cracker!!! I hope all crackers come back as a black male in their next life so they can see first hand how being black is damn near a crime alone, instead of getting defensive when they know one of their fellow crackers is dead wrong. If youre white & your more concerned with enangered whales in the atlantic ocean than people dying in africa your prejudice regardless of wether or not youve ever used the "N" word.

I'm white AND an environmentalist concerned about endangered sea life (as well as people dying in Africa and elsewhere) and I agree that being black is nearly a crime in itself in some areas. But in Homewood and Flossmoor? Not so much. Our neighborhoods are pretty diversified and our neighbors pretty much accept and respect each other. Of course, sadly, there are a few bad apples on both ends of the "color" spectrum.

@new breed sorry but concerned is a female in a man's body or vice versa whose concern is about his her inability to write and think or act a human being. "he-she really don't know nothing"
