Hundreds to attend peace walk for Trayvon Martin
The Los Angeles Wave ^ | July 17, 2014 | Imani Crenshaw,

Posted on 07/17/2014 4:57:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

LOS ANGELES – Nearly 500 people are expected to converge on Crenshaw High School Saturday for the Trayvon Martin Foundation’s 2014 LA Peace Walk and Peace Talk, hosted by Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, organizers said this week.

Local activists and civic leaders will join young people at the quarter-mile march that will honor “the right that all people should be able to walk safely on their streets,” says local organizer Vanessa Bolden.

Martin, 17, was killed in February 2012 as he returned from a convenience after buying Skittles and a soft drink. George Zimmerman admitted killing Martin, but said he did so in self-defense. Zimmerman later was acquitted.

The symbolic walk around Crenshaw High will address safety concerns when it comes to people walking freely and safely in their communities, Baden said. It is one of several events being held nationally to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Zimmerman’s acquittal.

“Power 106” morning show host Big Boy is one of the celebrities invited to speak at the walk, along with Community Coalition head Marqueece Harris Dawson.

Following the Peace Walk, Big Boy and Dawson will help moderate a Peace Talk with several panelists, including rapper Nipsey Hussle and Temptation actress Jurnee Smollett.

The Peace Talk is intended to discuss ideas and strategies for stemming the tide of gun violence and racial profiling in Los Angeles and throughout the nation, Baden said.

The program starts at 10:30 a.m. at Crenshaw High, 5010 11th Ave. in Los Angeles. For more information, call (305) 600-8810.

They'll be carrying the symbolic caskets of 10-30 Chicago kids who are killed every weekend, right?

Really inane. They cannot let this crap go, they cannot stop themselves from picking this scab, can they? It's all whitey's er, brownskins, er, short half-Jewish guys with dark skin's fault, right?

Does it ever dawn on them that the only person in that confrontation that night that was in his own community was George Zimmerman? Didn’t he have a right to walk safely in his community?

Free Skittles, Lemonade soft drink, and a Knockout T-Shirt for walkers on the “Trayvon Martin Trail of Tears” peace walk. Walkers will be expected to donate $100 to the Trayvon Martin Memorial Innocent Black Child Gun Violence Fund administered by his beloved grieving parents, Inc.

They'll interview one of the participants after the march:
"So, you participated in the march today?"
"Uh huh."
"Tell us why you participated."
"It was for Tra'Von! Po' little girl!"
"Tra'Von?"
"Yeah! She was just sittin' on the stoop, 'an the cops, they shot her! In cold blood!" [His friends agree] "Mmm hmm!" They all continue down the street, yelling "Tra'Von! Tra'Von! Tra'Von!"

Free Skittles, Lemonade soft drink,...................................... It wasn’t lemonade that Trayvon was drinking, just some Arizona Tea drink with watermelon on the label, and THAT the MSM would never mention. I never saw so much botched up reporting and trial like the martin vs. Zimmerman case. The dummies will believe anything, even that Zimmerman came from Mars, if the MSM printed it. Yet no one even knows who Antonio West was, nor even cares. Our world has changed, its now upside down.

How ironic, George Zimmerman was concerned about wanting to be safe on his street.

Gee, quite a few facts left out. If Crenshaw had been a writer right after WWII:

After years of attacks by US forces, Japan was forced to capitulate after sustaining two devastating nuclear attacks.

I would venture to say that there isn’t too much white-on-black killing near Crenshaw High. So exactly what are they marching against?

I figured during the march to get the real spirit of thing going.

Get Rachel Jeantel out there with a bull horn cheer leading them with a chant too.

"Beat that crackerass! Beat that crackerass!"

I would retort, George Zimmerman was walking and Trayvon attacked him and got shot.

The right that all BURGLERS/ATTACKERS can walk away safely?

How about the right to not be attacked by Feral Negros who want to kill you for street cred?
