Students go back to school with ‘Trayvon Martin dialogues’
The daily Caller ^ | 08/09/2013 | Robby Soave

Posted on 08/09/2013 11:52:48 AM PDT by celmak

Middle and high school students in San Diego, California will be encouraged to vent their frustration that the world lacks justice when they return to school and participate in the “Trayvon Martin dialogues” this fall.

The board of San Diego Unified Schools unanimously approved a proposal recently to establish classroom forums to discuss the death of Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who was shot during an altercation with a Hispanic man, George Zimmerman, in Florida last year. A jury recently acquitted Zimmerman, who claimed that Martin struck first and shot him in self-defense.

The sponsors of San Diego’s Trayvon Martin dialogues, however, believe the resolution of the case has produced in teenagers “feelings of fear, anger, and skepticism that they will live in a just society,” according to The College Fix.

The full proposal calls for forum participants to explicitly condemn “stand your ground” laws, which permit citizens to use force to defend themselves in dangerous situations instead of retreating. Florida’s law was erroneously credited with prompting the conflict between Martin and Zimmerman, though the matter never became a significant factor at the trial, since Zimmerman had no option to retreat, according to his official testimony.

That’ll go over real well until some right thinking student logically and factually explains that St. Skittles was a punk and a thug. That Martin attacked George - not the other way around. That Skittle and Ice Tea were in fact 2/3 of the ingredients used to get high in the ghettos. That traces of marijuana were found in Trayvon’s body. That the jury made the right call. And on and on.....

I’d love to be there and watch the liberal educators heads go esploding.

All this pushback and false narrative about the Treyvon case is going to come back to bite Dems in the arse. The moderates watched the trial as well and see this for what it really is...

It is Kalipornia, parents accept anything. They added pro-gay propaganda to every single class - even math- now they will allow self-declared tranny boys shower with girls from the 6th grade.

Parents care yet? No as far as I have heard.

The world lacks common sense and the reading comprehension skills to understand that the only “travesty of justice” was the Nifongism perpetrated by the MSM and courts system against Mr. Zimmerman.

They are skeptical that they will live in a just society?

Perhaps they will be somewhat less skeptical when they defended themselves against an attacking drug user and wind up in a courtroom looking for that Not Guilty verdict.

And you’ve yet to hear an apology from anyone involving the A. Tawana Brawley debacle, or B. The Duke LAX attempted railroading.

As a matter of fact the nuts on the left still think “something happened” in both incidences.

These people are evil to the core, and dangerous.

Not much of a “dialog” if the kids are told at the outset what to say.

Easier that teaching them cursive writing, how to spell, how to speak eloquently, how to find San Diego on a map, how to add, and how America came to be.

I'd hate to be growing up nowadays. My family telling me one thing, the school telling me another.

What happens to students who agree with the verdict? Will they be punished in some manner, either by school officials or by other students? In other words, will this be a real “dialogue” or simply indoctrination? I am sure that the “facilitators” will try to steer the “dialogue” in a “suitable” manner.

This is just stupid NONSENSE. Trayvon Martin was a criminal drug users, wannabe gang banger. He is NO ONE to be held out to others for any reason. Someone in the black community must step up and try to see that this insanity is stopped.

Yeah, right!

Did you see the video of the 3 Trayvons beating up a white kid in Florida while the busdriver looked on and didn’t intervene?

The white kid sustained a broken rib and broken arm.

The three Trayvons were arrested, but will get off with a slap on the wrist.

When whigger-punks and teachers become morgue stats in the thousands, then maybe the stand you ground "dialogue" will change.

I want to tell the youth who follow this propaganda to stop and think for yourself. Try to develop the necessary critical thinking skills to sort out the truth from such instances. Don’t let them do this to you!

Yes, but the white kid looked like Zimmerman, while the 3 on 1 assault was a fair fight according to thug-yoot rules.

Given that the left has virtually annointed this thug as some kind of saint, based purely on their blind faith in the goodness of Trayvon and the wickedness of his killer, these discussions should be barred based on the separation of church and state!

Who would that be? They've created a subculture of cretins who can't read, write, or speak proper English after being here more than 200 years, and they're being passed over by recent Asian immigrants and they can't stand it, so this is all they have - outrage over an isolated incident that was and is being misrepresented on a daily basis.

Any student who tries that would be shouted down by the discussion group (moderator included). Just like the way the Bolsheviks shouted down their opponents.

But that wouldn't be the end of it. A student so bold as to challenge the PC line here would find himself on the receiving end of an attitude adjustment while on the way home from school.

It is important for conservatives to speak up. But one should not be splashing in the water when alone in the midst of hungry sharks.
