Skip to comments.There Are No Two Greater Heroes Than Trayvon Martinís Parents! By Michael Skolnik

I remember growing up and always hearing my parents and their friends talk about one pivotal moment in their lives. They remembered exactly where they were at that point. Exactly who told them the news. Exactly how they felt once it all sunk in. When President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, everyone who was alive during that time remembers.
One year ago, today, was our generations moment. It was late on a Saturday night. Some of us were out to dinner. Some of us were home with our families. Some of us were still shopping. Some of us were driving in our cars. But, no matter where we were, we all heard and we all will always remember. Shortly after 10PM Eastern Standard Time, after 16 hours of deliberation, a six member, all-female jury acquitted George Zimmerman of murdering 17 year old Trayvon Martin. Silence. Quiet. And then some tears. Rolled down my face as I sat in my

..and excellent role models for parenting.
They raised a purple drank drinking thug
They ought to write a parenting book.
How to turn your baby into a drugged out gangsta, burglar and thief who tried to murder a guy because he thought he dissed him.
Were they not divorced? Let me know if I am correct.
Yes, you’re not going to hear negative things about them in a normal media article, much less one like this.
They’re still going on about this Trayvon thing?
That’s just retarded, sir.
Oy Vey....are we still discussing Travon Martin?? Tragedy but please let the guy RIP.
Dickens most beloved characters in the ‘hood: Bill Sykes and Fagin?
Heroes? They raised a thug. Or rather, they didn’t raise him at all. They didn’t care about their kid until he was killed.
“When President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, everyone who was alive during that time remembers.”
No... I was in the Navy and I heard about it a week later. I didn’t care that much then, and I don’t care that much today...
Sheesh. This character is nuts. People have to ignore a mountain of evidence to pretend that the Zimmerman verdict was a surprise, let alone some generational event on par with the assassination of JFK.
Tell me that’s parody.
Based on my observations of him in the past? No, he’s deadly serious. Look at his titles and Google his photos.
Take the rag away from your face, now ain't the time for your tears.
Chicago Shootings Over July 4th Weekend Leave At Least 9 Dead, Dozens Wounded
Bury the rag deep in your face, for now's the time for your tears.
Dad is a gang member. His beloved son was raised by his girlfriend because the mother was incapacitated. Beloved son was kicked out of his real mother’s house and good ol’ dad was living with yet another woman.
BTW - dad was so upset by the loss of his son that he got yet another woman pregnant before trayvon was cold.
That's it? THAT'S your "generation's moment"?
Pretty sad and pathetic. Sucks to be your generation, if that is true.
Oh. Em. Gee.
Please, please, PLEASE tell me that article was supposed to be parody? In my most sarcastic lampooning of the far left, I could never come up with a caricature as goofy and milque-toast as what this Skolnik guy has written.
What a fool.
didn’t he have 2 moms?
I think all warning labels should be written in cursive!
White-boy-who-wanna-be-black Skolnik is obviously too stupid to realize that Trayvon would try to beat his lily-white @ss in a heartbeat too.
I can think of millions of greater heroes, namely parents who teach their children to not act violently towards other people, not to steal, and not to act like punks. Trayvon’s parents failed on all accounts, and now he is dead.
“Were they not divorced?”
Don’t know, but both were residents of Miami-Dade school district when Trayvon was suspended from the district high school for having committed two offenses that qualified as felonies. His parents then sent Trayvon to live with his father’s girl friend in Sanford, some 200 miles distant, where he was seen by a neighborhood watch officer named Zimmerman sort of aimlessly wandering about after having been shopping for some of the key ingredients of his then favorite mine-bending drug.

Creepy “ass cracker”.
Skolnik defended a “gay bashing homophobe”.
“Creepy ass” cracker.
Or a thuggis bigot.
BTW, I hope we can keep the local cops from returning the stolen items found in Trayvon's possession to the rightful owners, if they haven't already done so. Trayvon Memorabilia were moving slowly enough .... and with PR like this article should really take off again. Let no unpleasant factoids get in the way of that!
BTW, my idea of pre-packaged "Trayvon Grillwork" for sale through dentists in the 'hood was severely impacted by rising gold prices. Not my fault. I hope it won't affect my bonus. (I do have Reggie Love ready to endorse)
The moment the media missed its mark thinking the man bit the dog, NBC doctors 911 tape and still the half-black Spanish kid is acquitted. Skolnick is, along with the other loons,
Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be crack smoking thugs who think laws don’t apply to themselves...unless you can leverage their unfortunate deaths into big Liberal Guilt money.
ha ha ...I think this guy should try harder.... BWAHAHAHA
“He is on the Board of Directors of The Trayvon Martin Foundation.”
His paycheck is dependent on people remembering Trayvon. You can’t get someone to understand something their paycheck depends on them not understanding.
I hate when autocorrect changes “grifters” to “heroes.”
OHFORGAWDSSAKE! What a bunch of bull.
Sounds like another White Guilt Liberal who thinks his intestines are reproductive organs
After listening and watching the GZ trial....you either are a moron or idiot to believe GZ murdered Trayvon Martin
His parents are no heroes...mom kicked TM out of the house...and dad still displayed his Crips tattoo on his neck (media would PhotoShop and edit it out)
How much money have they raked in so far?
so very much horse crap.
These two raised a punk ass thug.
This is right up there with
Getting your name in the phone book is a life changing experience because “You’re somebody now”.
While the sales at the Million Hoodie March fell flat we expect better things for the Million Hoodie August.
With every Hoodie sold we will give away a coupon for the Dell Comics version of The Guns of August — true stories of death and mayhem from the streets of Chicago.
The main character in the story is a hoodie-wearing candy-eating iced tea drinking super hero armed with big fists.
I had scouted some wonderfully cheap locations in Baghdad, but casualties in Chicago are much higher. I think we should go there for the reality aspect. Many experienced and well-armed extras available, too!
Working Title: "Chicago Hope." (No Gangstas were injured or suffered a loss of self esteem during this production.) Script by Maya Angelou and Fifty Cent.
BTW, send us your size and an MO for $49.95 and we'll send you a Trayvon Hoodie. Don't go Polar Bear Hunting without it! The Jeantel Kit also makes a nice gift for that special someone in your life.
Your type’o’thread ping
Trayvon Martin’s father is a Freemason Master in charge of his own FLA district.
Don’t believe me, folks?
Google him to see the ‘gang hood’ father in his Freemason attire during Freemason rituals.
Lots of Masonic players and imagery surrounding recent made-for-MSM ‘shootings.’
