There Are No Two Greater Heroes Than Trayvon Martinís Parents! By Michael Skolnik
The Global Grind - The World According to Hip-Hop ^ | July 13, 2014 | Michael Skolnik, editor-in-chief and political director to Russell Simmons

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 generation’s 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…

Yes, you’re not going to hear negative things about them in a normal media article, much less one like this.

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.

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.

Based on my observations of him in the past? No, he’s deadly serious. Look at his titles and Google his photos.

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.

"...One year ago, today, was our generation’s moment..."

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.
