Trayvon Martinís Parents To Host Civil Rights Rally In South LA
CBS) ^ | April 26, 2012 9:30 AM

Posted on 04/26/2012 10:01:28 AM PDT by BenLurkin

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A rally expected to draw prominent civil rights leaders is scheduled to take place at a Los Angeles church Thursday to mark the two-month anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death.

The rally starting at 5:30 p.m. at the West Los Angeles Church in Christ at 3045 Crenshaw Boulevard will be attended by the Martin family, NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous, the Rev. Al Sharpton, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Bishop Charles Blake, who preaches at the church.

Several celebrities are expected, including Stevie Wonder, Chaka Kahn, David Banner, Paul Rodriguez, radio host Big Boy and Magic Johnson

The rally is being held in part to “advocate for crime victims …, educate young people on conflict resolution techniques (and) increase public awareness against all forms of profiling,” the NAACP said in a statement.

Additionally, “this event will commemorate the two-month anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death,” it said.

What did the Martins do for a living before going into this line of work?

Showing up in South Central to whip up hatred against white people is extremely irresponsible.

It is disgusting when parents use the death of their child to make money.

Thursday to mark the two-month anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death.

Jesse will show up in a huge limo with darkened windows and will be treated like royalty. This just shows how dumb these people are.

By the way, does he fly by private jet?

Comunity porganized fashion , designed to destroy opour rukle of law, is heating up.

It is now in pre riot mode.

The riot mode will occur when another “incident” occurs, or when the State of Florida’s prosecution of the Zimmerman case does not proceed as dictated by the NAACP, the New Black Panthers, and the Obama administration.

Where is Ruibio on this? I havelst all respect for him and his gubinatorial “leadership.”

Florida is ruled by a Vichy government, selling the right to citizen due process to the occupying fascist Obama administration. SHAME!

The one silver lining I see is that they will be addressing conflict resolution. Perhaps they realize (if they didn’t before) that their son escalated the incident by confronting Zimmerman and then jumping him.

I would like to see them focus on that aspect, in the same way that Beth Holloway started advocating for students and parents taking more precautions in choosing spring break vacation spots.

There is no such thing as a “two month anniversary.” Anneversaries mark years, not months. I think these people want to mark the 20th anniversary of the Los Angeles riots with a re-enactment.

As a mom who has lost a daughter, these actions are not what grieving parents do. I still can not go into certain stores, restaurants, etc we use to go to and she died in 2004. Just my $.02. I don’t know why but they remind me of Cindy ?.

Are they going to rally like they rally when their basketball team WINS? Taking this to L.A. (not "LA", that's 'Louisiana') is highly irresponsible and done solely to stoke racial tensions.. How about Jesse be honest about this and call it the 'Energize Obama's black base' rally.

Community organized fascism , designed to destroy our rule of law, is heating up.

It is a fascim now in pre-riot “rally” mode, right on schedule for the post labor day run up to the federal election.

The riot mode will occur when another “incident” occurs, or when the State of Florida’s prosecution of the Zimmerman case does not proceed as dictated by the NAACP, the New Black Panthers, and the Obama administration, or whenever Obama makes something up to set these idjits off.

Where is Rubio on this? I have lost all respect for him and his gubinatorial “leadership.”

Florida is ruled by a Vichy government, selling the right to citizen due process to the occupying fascist Obama administration. SHAME!

We are no longer a nation of laws, here now even murder trials are held according to political whimsy. Welcome to the United States of Zimbabwe.Few even know we have an “angry man” as president, cast in the same image as Robert Mugabe.But it is a fact. And many will die because no one in a position of leadership will speak truth.Thats how fascism wins out over freedom, as been shown on the historical record of the modern era.

There will be no, “peace in our times.” Ordinary Americans need to start getting prepared for it.IMHO so many will be “surprised,” cowed, and threatened into submissive silence.

Hope comes only from Arizona, Oklahoma and

WTF?

In a Case where NOTHING indicates a "murder" (a legal self-defense case, based on the KNOWN Evidence), and the tribal parasites are swarming to keep the hate-fest alive, to energize The Messiah's base for the Nov. 2012 Elections.

Only in America.....

Additionally, “this event will commemorate the two-month anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death,” it said.


No this will be the anniversary of when Jesse and Al once again placed themselves in the limelight.

Donations were falling off, they had nothing to stir up new hatred and along came Trayvon like bright sar leading Jesse and Al once again into the spotlight.

When the riots break out these two should be arrested for instigating it, they have done one helluva job.

A very tired agenda for this gathering. I’d suggest something more RADICAL, something absolutely CRAZY, that it might just make a difference in their lives. Here’s just three absolutely INSANE ideas:

1. Parents. Get married, preferably before babies arrive, and share the same last name. Stay married and faithful to each other.

2. Parenting. Make your kids the priority. Ensure they are raised with the expectation to learn as a youth and earn as an adult. To be responsible, contributing, polite, and faithful to their God.

3. Jobs. Work. Work two jobs if you have to. Learn from every employer and continually grow your skills.

Thank you. It is getting easier. God is in control. Two years after she died, my brother died in May. 2006, hubby died in July, 2006, along with my sister’s husband and in January, 2007, my mom died. Very odd. My mom, dad and my mom’s dad all died on January 6, in different years. My mom would have been 108 on the 26th. We all miss them but know they are in a much better place.

Hey! The Martins and the other Black Klan racists are having a civil rights gathering in South Los Angeles with Rev. Al, Rev. Jesse, and the NAACP? What could go wrong? Maybe LaRaza goes a drive-by shooting on them?

She's going to be in denial all the way up until she's included in Zimmerman's defamation lawsuit.

“....increase public awareness against all forms of profiling...”

LMAO @ these fools. THEY planted the seeds, they watered it and they keep it alive.

After Obama’s country wrecking and his tribes well displayed White hate racism attacks, I doubt very much that I will live another day without profiling in one fashion or another.

Obama and his stupid fools, have set race relations back by at least 50 years.

Black conservatives can help to change this tide, many are, but there never seems to be enough of them, yet.
