Incidents like these have made it almost mandatory for parents of children of color to have the talk with their kids. Something that seems inconceivable in this day in age in a country that professes to be advanced and civilized;
Imagine if Timothy Loehman's parents; http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2015/01/timothy_loehmann_the_cleveland.html
had had a similar talk with their son when he was a teenager.
Perhaps the out come of November 22, 2014 would have been much different...
I can't help but wonder what the out come would have been if Tamir had been white?
When set next to the case of Ethan Couch; http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-35216590
it is difficult not to wonder what if...
We wish you a happy New Year.
