    Yet another suspicious death of a young black man in America. With no disrespect white child goes missing daily around the clock news. Meanwhile young black male found dead in the city, doesn’t even make the local paper there is something wrong in this country

    Anonymous: First, so sorry for your loss. I am a white man (straight, non-religious) who didn’t even know Thamba Mbungu, but was moved by his tragic loss. I think there are very few people who wouldn’t agree. I know you are angry…and I understand. However, your comment was the type of comment that divides us all. Your comment would have been best directed at the individual who took Thamba’s life and the local paper who made the decision not to print it! In honor of his life, from this day forward, try to remember that most of us, regardless of race are good people and only accuse the individual transgressor. Lumping us all in to one group is racism! Lets you and I help make this a better place to live. Again, so sorry for your loss! Anonymous2
