Skip to comments.About 2,000 march in Seattle to protest Florida teen's killing

"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.

"I'll go as far as I can," said Singleton, who carried a sign reading, "We are ALL Trayvon Martin."
"I don't want to see this kind of injustice continuing," he said. "We've had enough of it. I emphasize we."
These gullible idiots are probably the same crowd that thought OJ was framed.
In the meantime, the entire “Trayvon as victim” narrative is falling apart.
You can always tell you have reached ridiculousness when the Seattle liberals jump in.
The irony is that they are demanding justice and know nothing of the facts. For the purpose of helping to expand the racial divide, they are labeling Zimmerman white even though his mother is latino. If he were killed he would be hispanic.
Maybe they ought to invite all the Chicago homeboys and wannabe gangstas to the Northwest. Would be glad to get rid of them here.
yea they can’;t understand the laws we have here in FL plus they are so stupid that they cannot see they are being used by the left so they don’t see high gas prices etc.
This is how stupid they are.
They go from attacking FOX to that is not him on the updated photo to Zimmerman knocked himself out.
United for Hoodied Thugs! How sweet.....
(Don’t bring Skittles to a gun fight.)
For crying out loud, this wasn’t a tragedy and had nothing to do with race. How this becomes a national saga and a ‘cause’ are beyond reason. What injustice?
“In the meantime, the entire Trayvon as victim narrative is falling apart.”
That does not, and will not, matter. All the details of the Rodney King arrest were known and were available, but the Official Reality was about a hapless motorist brutalized by vicious racist cops, and they showed an endless loop of 12 seconds of King being hit.
Official Reality says that Treyvon is an innocent victim, backed up by a four year old picture of a cute little kid. The mob will run with Official Reality.
I'm sorry it happened, but the day people start marching about the young couple who were brutally murdered in Knoxville, or the Mississippi State Univ student gunned down over the weekend, then I might have an ounce of sympathy for this case.
Don't tell them, they can't handle the TRUTH.
They still thin Tawanda Browley was raped by the KKK. . . .
Did they all have golden teeth and gang tats?
If Zimmerman gets off, even if it’s a clear-cut case of self-defense, there are going to be riots.
I believe there are a lot of powerful people who are going to do whatever they can to destroy this guy regardless of innocence or guilt.
With what's come out about Treyvon in the last day, you might not want to admit that...(burglary, assault, drugs)
Photoshop Trayvon into that outfit. lol
We lived in a screwed up world. Bullets! Buy bullets.
Ya that gets me too.
The whole narrative of this story, that some unlucky black kid just minding his own business being shot by a racist with a gun, is unraveling as more facts come out.
But, the facts don’t matter to people do they?
The narrative is out there, that America is violent, bigoted, racist, and that racists clinging to their guns are shooting innocent black kids in the streets. Any facts which contradict the narrative are to be ignored, apparently.
The 2000 Moron March.
This whole “Trayvon” thing has gotten absolutely insane. And I’m sure, if Zimmerman had not turned out to be Hispanic, it would be even worse.
Yet blacks and the media don’t give a !#$% about that elderly couple who were attacked, the wife raped and murdered. Or the many other nonblacks who are attacked, raped, robbed, shot, killed by blacks all the time, far more numerous. Or what about all the blacks killed by other blacks? There are several every weekend in Chicago alone! I guess only blacks killed by nonblacks merit outrage.
And I find myself feeling sorry for Zimmerman. All of the facts aren’t in yet, but the fact that this could happen to someone in the United States of America, where people are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, is appalling.
It’s long past time to start fighting back, screaming long and loud. Yes, they’ll call us racists and Nazis. But so what? We’ve been groveling for decades, and they call us that, anyway.
