Newark church members wear hoodies on Palm Sunday as sign of solidarity with Trayvon Martin
New Jersey Star-Ledger ^ | April 1, 2012 | Eunice Lee

Posted on 04/01/2012 7:58:42 AM PDT by Zakeet

Pastor Ronald Slaughter wore his Sunday best, plus a white hoodie sweatshirt as he preached his Palm Sunday sermon today.

Slaughter and members of his congregation at St. James AME Church in Newark donned hoodies in honor of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen gunned down by a neighborhood watch captain last month.

Several congregants wore their hoodies up while others sitting in the pews came in regular dress. Slaughter, who wore a white zipped up hoodie sweatshirt over a shirt and tie, and other church leaders behind the pulpit wore hoodies but did not cover their heads.

They praise the Lord on Sunday and hate their fellow man everyday. I’m sure the Lord will be happy to explain their errors on their day of judgement.

The so-called black reverends have led so many souls to perdition. They will have alot to answer for.

They wear a hoodie to church to show solidarity with a thug Black Foot Soldier. Only in obamas America!

I talked to my cab driver (black man) friday, who was upset about this case- I had to TELL HIM that Trayvon was out in the dark in the rain walking between the houses... and then attacked Zimmerma

He was under the impression little innocent trayvon was walking hom from choir practice or something, minding his own business.

By the time I explained that zimmerman was getting his head bashed in he was AGREEING with me too- we just need to turn this around and use it to show the black people how the media USE THEM

My cab driver was pissed at Sharpton and Jackson too

Trayvon Martin Circus Reveals Race Card Bankruptcy

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On March 30, 2012 @ 12:55 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 47 Comments

The Trayvon Martin case is a wholly familiar one to residents of any major urban city. If you live in Chicago, New York or Los Angeles, then it’s only a matter of time until an incident between a law enforcement officer, or more rarely a civilian defending himself, and a member of a minority group flares up into a citywide grievance theater complete with angry reverends on the steps of City Hall, women with stony faces holding up banners calling for justice and a media driven debate about police tactics and racism.

This sort of thing happens with depressing regularity in cities where even the most liberal residents have to choose between police overreach and being murdered. It never leads to meaningful debate or a resolution, instead it peters out with the best actors in the grievance theater picking up money and influence, the media selling a few more papers or ads for nasal polyp relief on the drive time news and everything going back to the way it was.

The grievance theater is never really about the specific case, the specific shooting; it’s about the links between the social problems of the black community, the compromises of civil liberties necessary to keep entire cities from turning into Detroit and the inability of the media to address the sources of crime as anything but the phantoms of white racism. It’s about a black leadership that is more interested in posturing as angry activists and shaking loose some money, than in healing their own community’s problems. And so the same story repeats itself again and again without an honest dialogue or anything meaningful coming out of it.

The Grievance Theater has been going national. It’s no longer just extraordinary cases like Bernie Goetz’s Death Wish moment on the number 2 train that briefly catch hold of the national conversation. The obsessive coverage of the so-called Jena 6 case, an incident of so little internal meaning, signaled that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would no longer just be able to drive a local controversy; they now had the freedom to drive national controversies any time they wanted to.

Trayvon Martin is their big moment. It’s no longer just Grievance Theater being used to influence the political fortunes of a municipal election, the way that Howard Beach was used to bring down Mayor Koch and replace him with the execrable David Dinkins. Now it’s being used as part of a presidential campaign on a national level.

The fortunes of too many black politicians have been tied to white guilt and black rage. The worst sort of black politician channels black rage to score points with black supporters while playing on the guilt of white voters, promising to heal the social conditions that bring about that anger and protect them from its ravages. But never before has that game been played out of the Oval Office.

The article helps explain why Newark is such a fetid cesspool. It is largely composed of criminals — and those who actively support the criminal element. No hope. No change. It is Barack Obama’s America.

America’s best two haters & would be destroyers together!!! Hoods in a Church of Christ the Lord!!! Forget it, these foks are far from being Christians!!! Casting stones with out the facts is anarchy, something Obama and Wright adore to their very core. I am sad for American Blacks. Poor souls are adrift at sea, and cannot even see the real problems they suffer from. And.....they way they act they will be adrift at sea for many years to come. A good of reality is what they need!!! Their greedy, power hungry, crooked religious, their political, their community leaders, etc. have not been good Shepoards of the flock!!! Time for a reality check!!!

There are now hordes of “Obama’s & Holder’s people” gathering to try and convict Zimmerman without benefit of a court of law in which the man is INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. - It seems there’s nothing Obama would like better than that he, the media, and the black “reverends” would foment a race war in this country. - So much for Martin Luther King’s non-violent methods.

Hint: If you don’t vote for Barack Baby, then you’re RACIST!

And after the service was a meet-and-greet. Congregants were encouraged to go out into the community, find hispanics, and smash their heads into the pavement. In memory of Traaaayvon.

From one hoodie

to another. Whats the difference?

As an aside.

I did a google image search of "hoodie" and "ghetto hoodie" and EVERY single picture came back with a white person wearing a "hoodie". This one picture I posted was the first in a couple of hundred, that came back with a black person.
(Can we say "filtered by google" ?)

I can't tell you how many hoodies I have in my closet (6-8-10) and I am a 71 year old white woman. I have never referred to them as hoodies, they are sweatshirts and jackets with hoods. I only put the hood up if it is raining. I sure won't even wear one until all of this insanity subsides. I probably will donate them all to the Goodwill anyway.

I bought a “hoodie” yesterday at Goodwill. Had to have a zipper and pockets large enough for my hands. It was 1/2 off too. Woo-hoo!

A plain grey one. The hood helps prevent my rather expensive hearing aids from getting wet.

How many black young men were murdered last year in Newark by OTHER black young men? Over 90%.

That's right - almost all black murder is done by other blacks.

In Sanford - the community-watch person was Hispanic. The 'gated community' was less than half white.

The 'racist killer' has black friends who vouch for him. The police didn't arrest him BECAUSE they thought it was self defense...

Facts are such messy.

The KKK and Black Panthers both believe they're above the law, both want 'justice' done without courts or rule of law - and both groups are comprised of thugs. Both groups traditionally voted democrat.

It's NOT 1964. Bull Conner ( a democrat) is not sheriff. George Wallace (a democrat) is not governor. Robert Byrd - a KKK member AND democrat is not a Senator from Florida. Sanford's chief of police is black. Step back ministers in hoods... step back and wake up - it's NOT 1964...

I have about the same amount.

Some strictly for work. Others, I have gotten on vacation from places that I go to. Like Estes Park or Rocky Mountain National Park. Every time I put one of these on, it reminds me of the place and the good memories or feelings it stirs.

I won't let them dictate my actions or reactions.

The same thing happened last Sunday at a largely black church in Norfolk, VA (Calvary Revival); a Freeper posted pictures of the congregation in their hoodies.

Is church about worshiping, or is it about race? How many times was the name of Jesus Christ mentioned, compared to the number of times they spoke about Trayvon? THIS STUFF HAS NO PLACE IN A HOUSE OF GOD.

My opinion of Obama is a little different. I think he is basically a very shallow impotent person with a maturity level of a 12 - 13 year old boy.

I think his strategy is to gain voters based on a fear of his failure at the ballot box will cause the feared race war.

He is far to much of a pussy to actually confront his enemies so he buys them off. Just like the rich pussy ass kids at school. That's why he surrounds himself with the super aggressive liberal partisans(even that hag of a wife). They are his bullies.

That explains why he his wrong on just about every issue. There is nobody home. He's just a conduit/collector of his protectors individual policies. He is just a giant colon and his mouth is the asshole.

Remember Bill Ayers/Bernadine Dorn/Weather Underground, it’s all part of how Democrats will community organize off campus.

And for the Pastor, just know the last guy that yelled racial epithets and swore at me, I prayed for the lost soul to find his way to be a good man. The example I’d expect from a man of the ‘cloth’.

For them its ALL ABOUT worshipping race. They just throw Jesus' name around to give themselves an air of legitamacy.
