I hope she tells them that they should come straight home instead of lurking to whack a neighborhood watchman.

What we need is a whole lot more trayvonings to halt the out of control incidents of black on white hate crimes.

Interesting how the article states it set off a firestorm of protest instead of the media turning into a firestorm.

My school had Dr. Carson as a guest speaker. I have never see so many unhappy faculty leaving the room after his speech.

Dear Sybrina,

I believe young George's version of events, and so did the (mixed race) jury.
You see, your boy chose to play a thug game, and he won a thug prize.
It's only a shame that the prize isn't awarded a dozen times per day.

But hey, at least you're gettin' to stay in all those fancy hotels and stuff !

happy black history month,
tomkat

I really wish I could have been there. I very much want this man to be our next president.

Raise a thug, then after he’s shot attacking someone, become famous (or infamous).

>> “The killing is yet another reminder that, in Florida, racial profiling and stereotypes may serve as the basis for imaginary fear and the shooting and killing of young teenagers,” Martin’s parents noted in a joint statement.

>> The statement is one of many renewed calls to reform Florida’s controversial “stand your ground” self-defense law.

Still peddling the lie. Still pushing the unrelated anti-STY agenda.

Will Sybrina Fulton tell how she ran out and hired a PR company to sell a false image?

They used to have a video of a Q&A session from after his speech posted, but they seem to have taken those down.

From what I have seen online, it appears that this attention junkie did not even raise him, as that became the job of St. Tray’s stepmother.

UConn will you have George Zimmerman to speak, too? Trayvon’s mom, I have a question. Why did you name him Trayvon instead of Mike or Bill or Chris?

RE: Sabrina Fulton Speaking Engagement

Director Cole,

It is my hope that UCONN not be unwittingly taken in by an exploitative agenda. In the interest of full disclosure it should be noted on related UCONN media materials as well as at the event the following:

1) That Florida’s “stand your ground” law was never an issue in this case. Neither the Prosecution nor the Defense made any issue of Florida’s “stand your ground” law.

2) Applying for trademark protection [1].

3) Development and marketing of the “Trayvon Martin” image was handled by Julison Communications of Orlando, Florida, hired by Sabrina Fulton’s attorneys Natalie Jackson and Benjamin Crump. This includes the dissemination of a photo outdated by five years. [2]

Had “stand your ground” been at issue it would be a legitimate topic in this context, however it was not at issue in this context. Copyrighting a name and hiring a PR firm are unusual and seem to indicate a commercial interest.

Discussion of important topics is necessary and UCONN is to be commended. But truth must not be hidden so that topics may be exploited for economic or political purposes.

I hope that UCONN is interested in discovering and promoting truth, dispelling preconceived notions, and in not being used unwittingly by those promoting a false legend to support their agenda. A false legend can have serious consequences. [3]
