“Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son Sage Stallone,” Sylvester’s rep, Michelle Bega, said in a statement. “His compassion and thoughts are with Sage’s mother, Sasha [Czack]. Sage was a very talented and wonderful young man, his loss will be felt forever.”

If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Obama said, underscoring how the issue affected him on a personal, and not just a political or legal, level. “I think [Trayvon's parents] are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.”
Some comments are suggesting that Obama has waded in because this kid was black but had nothing to say when a white kid was set afire by two black teens.:
To be fair the white kid did not lose his life but he was burned up pretty badly as they poured gasoline on him and threw a BIC lighter at him. They were all teens and it was not a case of a grown man chasing down a kid and killing him…lots of differences here but both may be hate crimes as the black boys said “that’s what you get white boy.” Hate crime writ large.
What about the horrible case in NJ where some Mexican thugs executed four teens in cold blood.
Today, this is on my mind because I first, accidently, called my one black student in class “Trayvon” and his name is similar to Tryavon. I quickly corrected myself before the kids realized what I said. But not sure these youngsters are aware of the media and its impact on this case.

The top four dancers did their thing last night. I am watching the recording just now. I didn’t know the finale was tonight. The final two are women one black one white. Sasha is superb dancer I see a lot of yoga movesin her dancing too. The winner won 47%.
Melanie is white and she was great too and since she white I kinda suspect she would win. Sasha was better.
This season there is a black woman in the top four and she has had a strong season. Omg Katie Holmes is one of the judges. Sasha has a good chance of winning. We will see how far she goes.
