Their age, not race, scares me

Many teens act like they are 10 ft tall, can live forever. I don’t know what happened in Trayvon’s case but I’m 6’5″ and 300 lbs and feel uncomfortable when confronted by young adults no matter what color they are. Standing with their hands in their pockets and they have a hoodie on is scary because I don’t know what to expect.

Bias in one form or another will always be with us because we are human. Overcoming bias only comes with understanding each other. Always treat others as you wish to be treated.
