Whenever criminal news comes with pictures of offenders, the image naturally adds to an ongoing process in our mind - stereotyping. I remember that it bothered me that my son cut his hair too short after the shooting rampage in Virginia Tech in 2007 simply because I didn't want anyone to unconsciously associate his Asian face with Seung-Hui Cho. When he wears loose pants and a hat in airport, it takes more time for inspection. After the Boston Marathon Heba Abolaban of Malden was attacked by man accusing Muslims of Marathon bombings. Obviously it was wrong. George Zimmerman, the 28 year old Florida neighborhood watch captain, shot unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin who was wearing a hoodie walking through a gated neighborhood (his father's fiancée's house) after buying some refreshment in store.  Zimmerman, based on his past experiences over colored, saw the teen as real "suspicious" while he frequently warned residents to be careful of young black males. The real problem came after the Florida jury's acquittal of George Zimmerman on charges of murder and manslaughter. Now it is not any more a criminal case but civil rights. Living in US as  minority we know that it will not be just a problem between Black and White and as parents we wonder how to talk to our children.
