    Should "whites" start to become worried?

    The Trayvon Martin killing was very unfortunate, The killing of Christopher Lane (white) by two teens (black) who were looking for a "thrill" is beyond reason. Does this mean that every white must now look over his or her shoulder?

    No!  It means we all need to communicate together as human beings and try to understand what joins us as brother and sister.  Then stand up for and defend each other like we mean it!

    Yes, white people do have to look over their shoulder.  Christopher Lane was not the only white victim by black people.  When it comes to interracial crime more black people have attacked nonblack people than the other way around.  White people have been demonized by liberals and leftists who have nurtured this hatred among minorities by making them feel unjustly victimized.

      Ok just remember what you have piled on the shoulders of black people and hang your heads in shame.

      Hang your own head in shame for making black people dependent on handouts.

    No, all people should look over their shoulder.  White people just have to realize that when something happens to them, they'll be no political pressure to correct it.  There are no white Al Sharpton's marching for white people when they're victimized.

    Well for one thing, it's as LandmarkWealth says.

    Everyone should be looking over there shoulders, but not just because of black people, or specifically any race of people for that matter.
    What happened to Trayvon Martin and Christopher Lane were both saddening trajedies.
    The world is just overall a dangerous place, and will continue to get more dangerous as days continue to pass by.
    Whether it's because people are desperate or just generally mentally unstable. People who kill others usually don't care for race. They're even willing to attack their own race.
    However, I'm saddened that I have to admit that people will kill each other simply because their skin is a different tone or color.

    People being mistreated because of color has been a recurring theme from since history began. And the only that has changed since then is the media coverage over the tragedy.

    So finally, to answer your question, YES, white people should be looking over their shoulder, but so should every every other race on the face of the planet. And not because of a some tragedies that have recently occurred, but because the world is already dangerous place.

      Welcome to HubPages.  Well said.  I feel that the knee jerk reaction of buying more guns is only going to fan the flames.
