Skip to comments.About 2,000 march in Seattle to protest Florida teen's killing
Posted on 03/27/2012 7:34:10 AM PDT by Baynative
"I AM TRAYVON MARTIN," read one sign in the crowd, ~~~
Many wore hooded sweatshirts commonly called hoodies because that is what Martin was wearing when he died. And some held bags of Skittles candy and cans of iced tea because that was what the unarmed African-American youth was carrying when he was confronted by the watch leader, George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old son of a white father and Hispanic mother.

Let’s keep doing what the 0media won’t do.
I am Trayvon......but sometimes I think I’m Napoleon, too.
Yeah, I think if Zimmerman is proven right they will all have to repeat the march walking backwards with a sign saying I was wrong to jump to conclusions. I apologize to Mr. Zimmerman. That is the only way to regain their honor in my eyes.
What are you going to do with "bullets" without accompanying shellcases, powder and primers?
Bullets are to cartridges as cement is to concrete, as flour is to bread, etcetera.
If you wish to write about the subject, please learn the language.
Can you imagine what will happen if the Republican wins the presidential election and it’s at all close, say like Florida 2000. Insurance companies are probably getting a little nervous about now.
“These gullible idiots are probably the same crowd that thought OJ was framed.”
Not gullible. Simply racist.
If the double murderer Simpson had been white, there would have been no “framed” mythology.
This has become a campaign organizing technique for the Obama campaign. They are now selling gray hoodies like the one that Trayvon was wearing, except this one says, “Obama 2012.”
Those were murders perpetrated by those wearing hoodies-part of the uniform of young gangstas- as opposed to someone being killed wearing the uniform.
The organized uprising because of the Trayvon killing is specifically for the purpose of distracting attention of the mindless moonbats from the creeping doom of Obamacare death.
Everything they want and worship is coming to destruction.
Trayvon is being used to prevent that understanding of the impending doom of Obama care.
I wonder if I would be called a thug wearing my skateboard company hoodies at the skatepark, grocery store, the mall or walking through a parking lot to get into my BMW because I’m black and have a hoodie on?
No more than I should be called “Redneck” after arriving at your parking lot in my pickup because I’m (sunburned) white and wear my boots and hat after working on my ranch.
(I also have a BMW, but it’s only out of the shed after we get the snow melted and the lane graded out.....generally about the middle of May. By the way, mine’s a ‘06 M5, maybe we can share a beer and some tales about the cars sometime.)
Meanwhile, the media ignores victims in the famous black on white crime known as the Knock-Out Game.
When the riots occur,(and they will) shoot straight...
Would love too and how expensive parts are!
They are the same idiots who threw rocks through Starbucks and McDonalds during the G-7 conference. They are the same idiots you always find coming out of the wood word in Seattle for anything whack left!
That really got highlighted when I went to H.S. in Kansas. I graduated H.S. 6 months early........
People are funny....
So where’s the media outrage for these two white victims? By the way what happened to the garbage who killed these two?
Dude....surely you knew what the guy meant.
SOMEONE ought to take ONE black on black crime that has recently happened ..Rush, Levin ...even Hannity ..whomever. And just repeat it over and over again .... even form a MARCH for this particular crime and its victims — illustsrate how NO ONE REALLY CARES if it’s black on black crime.
We need to illustrate exactly how political this is.
More and more, however, I want to move far, far away from the cities, and never return again. I’ve had it.
Credit to somebody else, "The Legend of Saint Skittles." I like to juxtapose that with "The True Story of Trayvon the Thug (tm)"
You ever want to come up and skate....let me know!!
I just read the article. Freaking brutal animals.
I almost popped a hot head when he reached into his bag during an argument with me. He told the cops later he was reaching for his walkman.
I would say they're being selective about the facts, hearing only those bits and pieces that fit their worldview.
People like to have their world wrapped up in a nice tidy package. Once they get the bow on it and everything is "just so" they set it in a curio cabinet and don't touch it for the rest of their lives, job well done. Meanwhile the world changes around them but it's too much work to adjust to it, opting instead to only see the things that fit their myopic viewpoint. Like a drunk, they surround themselves with people just like them to reinforce their belief that they're OK and everyone else is nuts.
Trayvons mom just applied for trademarks for using her sons name. I read it on MSN home page.
Yeah, I’ve been getting trolled by Rooivalk on another Tryvon thread asking questions that have been more than answered but the idiot won’t read what others are posting. He keeps insisting that Zimmerman was the instigator and caused/murdered poor Tryvon all because he got out of his car and followed Tryvon.
These trolls are exposing themselves and nobody is zotting them. They are as bad as the Paulbots on here a few weeks ago. I know of at least 3 Paulbots who are still posting on here and would attack anyone who spoke out against Paul.
One got my account locked for confronting him on stalking me. FR kept his account active but locked mine so I couldn’t post anymore. Go figure. Sometimes I just can’t figure out the moderators on here.
Well in many cases both sides were wearing the hoodie.
One sign read: Where’s my free Skittles!?
Another sign read: Where’s my free hoodie!?
Still another: Where’s my free plant!?
Oh, and one sign read: Believe the hype!
Seattle is to WA as Philthy is to PA
damn, wrong URL .. check back soon .. lol
Where was this March?
Just out of curiosity, I wonder if the hoodie he was wearing was white like in all the pictures.
Until that day comes, he can just STFU...
The gangbangers thin their own numbers pretty effectively.
But of course.
But certainly you didn't ignore your children's poor grammar, just because you knew what they meant.
Words have very specific meanings, for a purpose. Many read this forum as a learning experience. Posters have an unstated obligation to be truthful and accurate.
It is noble to help others raise their level of understanding. It is foolish to lower yourself to the level of the undereducated because it is convenient.
"Maybe they should also start bashing the heads of some Latinos, because that is what Martin was doing when he died."
Maybe they should suddenly sport holes in thier chests, because thats what Martin had when he died. /major sarc
I want to trademark.....”I am NOT Trayvon”
Zombie Apocolypse wannabees wearing grim reaper costumes, protesting for the right to bash heads with impunity
