Sunnubian, I feel that these online petitions being absolutely ineffective in resolving real world issues. It just offers up your personal information to an organization, who knows who is actually running it, in a database. Change.org has done several online petitions, however, I don't see the results of those individual petitions actually causing any significant change without the action of another group or a group in general. I'm not saying that change.org is bad, I'm just questioning their methodology.
Having said that, in this case of an upper class black child being killed you would think that the NAACP would've said something by now. I haven't even received any messages from them as I normally do when something pops off. But I guess they have to wait for the issue to become hot with the white liberal media before they mention anything. Useless.
