Wyclef Jean Pays Tribue To Trayvon Martin In New Song
starpulse.com ^ | 4/19/12

Posted on 04/23/2012 5:20:58 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Wyclef Jean has recorded a new tribute song dedicated to slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin...

On the track, Jean sings, "If you're seventeen, and you're wearing a hoodie, you're on the phone, talking to your shorty, make no mistake, there's one like you, in every city, you know the story.

"He goin' creep up, from behind, have you leave Earth, before your time, by the time PoPo (police) show up, he goin' say he was so scared he shot you up."

"He could have been the next president. He could have been the next Steve Jobs. He could have been the next astronaut. So until we get justice, we won't stop."

KEYWORDS: race; trayvonmartin
Give me a break. How about this lyric: "If he had not bashed someone's head, the next Steve Jobs would not be dead!"

This is the guy who stole money intended for Haiti earthquake victims, right?

Wyclef Jean tried to run for president of Haiti — but Haiti decided that they were looking for someone with more class.

President, maybe. Someone who actually works for a living, I don't think so.

Leave it to Wyclef Jean to swoop in and make a dime off of a tragedy. Look at what his “charitable” organization earned off of the Haiti earthquake. The man is a parasite.

Gwendolyn Brooks already composed one, back in 1959:

We real cool. We
Left school. We

Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We

Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We

Jazz June. We
Die soon.

I like this updated version of Elton John’s ‘Levon’ better:

Trayvon groupies wear hoodies like a crown
You would think that thug was Jesus
Trayvon, oh they all now love that name,
Like Martin, Malcom, Jesse and Fat Al...

Trayvon, Trayvon’s Momma wants that money!
She’ll win a lot they say,
With lawyers, and race pimps by the bushel,
They’re countin’ that money every single day!

And Trayvon! He say “you gonna die now!”
As he reached for Zimmerman’s gun,
But Zimmerman, he was faster than Trayvon,
And pulled the trigger, and blew that thug away...

And they shall shout TRAYVON!
And they’ll say he was a good man!
And they shall shout TRAYVON!
And put a bounty out on Zimmerman!

They shall scream Traaaaayvonnnn!!!

Can I just say....BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Really this whole case has been completely overblown.

Dude probably wouldn’t have given him bus fare before this now he writes a song about him.

There are no songs condemning black on black crime.

There are, however, a hell of a lot that condone, condone and glorify it.

Including what lil Trayvon like to listen to by his hero C-Murder, who apparently graced his cell phone wallpaper.

And the sad part is they now disarmed Zimmerman even though his life is now threatened even more while out on bail. Hopefully he has a 2nd gun hidden.

Who's going to pay tribute to the Straits with a song?

While the Zimmerman/Martin ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just a few weeks ago?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.

Can you just imagine the pain, the humiliation, the horror that dear old lady experienced being gang raped by that pack of feral animals?

(the autopsy states she was raped. Don’t think all of these animals didn’t all participate)

And can you imagine the pain, the horror of that dear old husband having to witness this?

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?

WHERE IS THE NATIONAL OUTRAGE?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2117695/Brutal-home-invasion-Oklahoma-couple-ends-65-year-romance-meeting-blind-date.html

__________________________

Have they caught the rest of the gang of feral blacks who raped, tortured and murdered this elderly woman? Are they even looking? Not a word about it in the media.

Wyclef almost ran for president of his native Haiti. But even Haitians didn’t want him and disqualified him because he did not meet the minimum requirements.

“He could have been the next president. He could have been the next Steve Jobs. He could have been the next astronaut..”

This was my laugh for the morning!!

The media came out immediately stating that St. Skittles was and “A/B student”

Yet his mother got a Court Order to seal his school records. HA. That tells me everything about this little genius!!

Astronaut, yes! His sorry ass was blasted into space!

This is typical of Jean’s subculture— the thuggy, the free-loading, the let’s-riot-’cause-we’re-mad, the it’s-all-about-me, the I’ll-steal-it-and-be-proud crowd. Logic, common sense, reality mean nothing. What matters is “what I want, what I think, what I need and how soon I need it.” It’s about a definition of “good” that is unknown to anyone outside that culture.

The victimization cabal cannot entertain even the POSSIBILITY that Trayvon was the aggressor, despite most evidence pointing toward that conclusion.

Did Elton John record his tribute yet....

Found this one on the Internet, I cannot claim credit for it.

Trayvon wears his gold grill like a crown,
Call his child Skittles, cause he likes the name,
Suspended from the finest school in town.

Trayvon, Trayvon like his money,
makes alot they say.
Spends his days dealing, by the playground way.

He was born a bastard to a ho,
6 weeks past Christmas day.
When the New Tork Times says Clintons great,
Tracy Martin had a son today.

And he shall be Trayvon,
And he shall be a hood man.
And he shall be Trayvon,
in tradition with the family plan.
And he shall be Trayvon,
And he shall be a hood man.
......he shall be Trayvon.

Trayvon, steals womens jewelry all day,
His family business thrives.
Skittles blows up balloons all day,
Sits on the porch watching them fly.

And Skittles, wants to go to Venus,
and leave Trayvon far behind.
Take a balloon and go sailing,
while Trayvon, Trayvon slowly dies.

And he shall be Trayvon,
And he shall be a hood man.
And he shall be Trayvon,
in tradition with the family plan.
And he shall be Trayvon,
And he shall be a hood man.
......heeee shaaaall beeee TraaaaayyyyVVVVVVooooooonn.

Wyclef Jean Pays Tribue To Trayvon Martin In New Song

Wyclef Jean? Shouldn't he run running some sort of charity or something in Travon's name instead?

It would be less offensive than his singing.
