My heart goes out to mothers who were innocent victims, not thugs like Martin.

It should be for victims of black violence, not perpetrators of it.

~~~rapper Tupac Shakur‘s mother Afeni Shakur~~~

Of course, there was that, what, 6-year-old kid that was killed by Tupac’s pistol that was picked up after he dropped it?

The story goes is, it “went off” after being picked up.

I just read a few lines about that a couple weeks ago.

Sounds a little off, to me.

Host one called “Victim of Democrat Violence”, you could pack the Rose Bowl.

I hope every one realizes that this Trayvon Martin “foundation” is simply a way for Sybrina Fulton to have money to pay her travel and other expenses and also to place her on salary for her “services.

This farce is being held at the Bonaventure Resort & Spa. The place is given good marks at tripadvisor, mediocre at Yelp. I can’t imagine what sort of high-end location would want to associate with this type of thing.

It’s not gun violence,it’s people to people violence.A gun is an inanimate object,has no mind or will of it’s own.

Sybrina Fulton did not raise Trayvon full time past the age of 2.

She and her estranged husband/boyfriend, have consistently been in the media, presenting themselves as a couple, and presenting their lives as having been an intact family, in which they were raising their son.

In fact, Trayvon was raised in a variety of ad hoc arrangements. This mother, while she may feel grief, cannot feel the same grief as a mother who actually raised her children. Sorry, if this sounds heartless, so be it.

Based on the Martin case, and how this has been portrayed by the liberals, the media, and the race baiters, you would swear that the biggest threat to young black men was a White Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer.

In fact, by far, the biggest threat to young black men are other black men with guns. But, why let the facts get in the way of the liberal narrative which has been constructed?

She didn’t lose a child to violent people. She lost a child due to his propensity for violence.

I would love to see financial statements from this foundation. It would be interesting to see who donates, what the expenses are, and who the salaried employees/directors are.

Indeed I have to wonder whose idea it in fact was to try to trademark her son’s name? I suspect an Al Sharpton might figure prominently in that stunt.

“She lost a child due to his propensity for violence.”
She may have lost a child due to her poor parenting skills,but she’s not prepared to even consider that possibility.

Bonaventure is practically out in the middle of the Everglades. One of the only good things about Ft. Lauderdale is that it has a decent beach (though you have to pay to park).

If you’re not near the beach in Ft. Lauderdale (or on Las Olinas), then you might as well be in Ocala.

Will the workshops include how to break into people’s houses? Or how to roll a joint? Or how to beat someone near to death?

The St. Skittles Foundation....Ha !!

he met his demise a little sooner than he might have, but he would still be in the same place by now, or in a year or two.

He was headed for jail, and an early grave. Zimmerman jsut gave it a jump start.

A two-day healing retreat for mothers who have experienced gun violence ... should be based ONLY on the TRUTH !
Home schooling is the ONLY way to go.

Start with teaching your children the FACTS that liberals despise.

Its like "Holy Water" against these "life-sucking", "life-destroying" vampires.

First show them that
Then show your children these links:
That should be a good start , and that should drive those VILE teachers into insanity.

Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Trayvons

Trayvons ain’t easy to love and they’re awful damn dumb.
They’d rather shout rap songs than go to school and learn.
WorldStar HipHop and knockout game videos,
And each arrest begins a new sentence.
If you don’t understand him, an’ he don’t die young,
He’ll prob’ly just OD.

Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be Trayvons.
Don’t let ‘em be burglars or drink Purple Drank.
Let ‘em cook fast food and wash cars and such.
Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be Trayvons.
‘Cos they’ll join a gang and they’re always in prison.
Unless they meet up with a man with a gun.

Who knows why you just had to make that lean,
who knows why you became part of the gangsta scene,
who knows who sold you all them blunts,
who understood your whistles and your grunts,
who made you assault the neighborhood watch,
whose jewelry was that you were caught with at school
who made you act the ghetto fool?

Why didn’t your Crip daddy stick around,
whose head on the pavement did you pound,
who had to make a decision that fateful night,
when you left him no escape and picked a fight,
who made the choice to mock and sass,
an armed watchman (you called “creepy ass”),
who could’ve gone home but didn’t there go,
instead walked towards a six foot deep hole.
