Right wing rules for black youths to avoid deserving death

Rate: 5 Flag

Considering the right wing reaction to the death of Trayvon Martin, I thought it might be useful to collect their wisdom and advice for black male youths:

What black youths must never do in order not to deserve to be shot to death:
 
1.      Wear hooded clothing

2.      Enter non-black neighborhoods without a non-black individual's permission

3.      Enter a non-black neighborhood without constant accompaniment by a non-black person

4.      Wear baggy pants or other loose-fitting clothing

5.      Sexualize themselves and thereby threaten non-blacks by wearing form-fitting clothing when walking in a non-black neighborhood

6.      Walk in non-black neighborhoods with their hands in their pockets

7.      Look other than straight ahead when passing through a non-black neighborhood for fear of raising suspicion of 'casing the joint.'

8.      Look a non-black person in the eye when confronted for walking in a non-black neighborhood for lacking the accompaniment of a non-black person or for looking from side-to-side

9.      Speak other than when spoken to when confronted by a non-black person for walking in a non-black neighborhood unaccompanied by a non-black person

10.      Display anger, annoyance or irritation at being confronted by a non-black person for walking in a non-black neighborhood unaccompanied by a non-black person

11.   Speak disrespectfully to a non-black person when accosted for walking in a non-black neighborhood with or without hooded, loose-fitting, or form-fitting clothing unaccompanied by a non-black person

12.   Run when pursued by a gun-toting non-black person when walking in a non-black neighborhood unaccompanied by a non-black person

13.   Resist or defend themselves in any way when pushed, shoved, spat upon or otherwise assulted by a non-black person for walking in a non-black neighborhood.

14.   Resist or defend themselves in any way when accosted by a gun-wielding non-black person for walking in a non-black neighborhood

15.   Die other than quietly when a non-black person pursuing them shoots them

16.   Have loved ones publicly display horror, grief, or outrage when they are murdered by a non-black person for walking unaccompanied by a non-black person in a non-black neighborhood.

Sounds a lot like a new Jim Crow, doesn't it?
This will pass with a plea bargain I bet, and rather shortly.
Thank you for this perspective.
