The George Zimmerman trial is the worst fear of every black family
The Guardian ^ | July 7, 2013 | David Dennis

Posted on 07/07/2013 5:13:36 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The Trayvon Martin case has been nothing short of heartbreak from the very beginning. Regardless of what anyone believes about Trayvon's past, his innocence or George Zimmerman's, the fact remains that a teenager is dead. I honestly didn't think I would get emotionally broken up more than I was over the story that Rachel Jeantel's friendship with Martin stemmed from the fact he was one of the only people who never picked on her. The story painted such a tragic picture of friendship and two people whose lives will never be the same.

Then came this week's testimonies and reactions from Trayvon Martin's parents to leave me – and so much of America – floored. On Friday morning, Sybrina Fulton took the stand to talk about her son. As part of her testimony she had to identify her child's screams in his finals seconds of life. Later in the day, Tracy Martin had to sit in court as the medical examiner, Dr Bao, explained how Trayvon died in severe pain and was alive for minutes after getting shot in the chest.

Essentially, Friday – almost as much as the day Trayvon was shot – was any parent's nightmare. Trayvon's parents had to come face to face with their son's murder while Fulton got questioned over whether or not her son actually deserved to get killed. Tracy had to sit in the same room as the man who shot his son in the chest, unable to retaliate or let the rage he has to be feeling out.

Yes, this is the worst imaginable day for a parent. But it's one the parents of an African-American child has been conditioned to accept as a possibility....

There are people so depraved and evil that the world is much better off without them.

I suspect Travon Martin was one of those. Maybe there was something good about him, one never knows for sure but it sure looks like he was a thug.

The fact that Zimmerman saved his own life by eliminating this person from earth should be celebrated instead of his being prosecuted by a crooked system.

OK, so the guy has a heart. No common sense and didn’t seem at all concerned with the facts.

Now that 200 people have been shot in one weekend in Chicago we should be hearing calls for action, right?

Well that was a different spin on the facts. White parents all over the country this weekend reminded their kids that if they wanted the family car, they had to shoot a couple of black kids while they were out.

Trayvon wasn’t murdered. He was killed while committing an act of violence. That will always be a tragedy for his mother, but persecuting George Zimmernam isn’t the way to deal with it. People have to be able to defend themselves when someone violently attacks them. Trayvon should have hurried home, if he was worried about George observing him.

One can always depend on getting the Maoist perspective on any issue from the Guardian,a paper that even Pravda refuses to quote today.Every black family's fear? You mean the fear that a young,fatherless 6 foot tall black kid will fall for all that gangsta,"hate crackers" stuff,develop an interest in...ahem,accumulating...large quantities of women's jewelry,develop a taste for weed (which he had in his system at autopsy) as well as a taste for God-knows-what-else,photographs himself holding large sums of cash (gangsta style),photographs himself with a firearm (again,gangsta style) and then be seen straddling a guy in red while beating the tar out of him just before the assaultee decided that it wasn't *him* who was gonna die that night?

OK,yah...I can see that.

Article written by a black writer who is, either intentionally or unintentionally, ignorant about the facts in this case. Worried about his son coming home? Maybe, just maybe, he should make sure his son is not a thug attacking people who he feels has disrespected him in some manner.

Also, maybe he should caution his son to stay far away from black “yutes” at whose hands he is far, far, far more likely to suffer death than at the hands of a white person.

“fear that one day, America will put us through what the Martin family is enduring.”

The violent, criminal thug as victim is one of the most common liberal false narratives.

Liberal claim it is America's fault. The parents who are clearly going for a dishonest payday are the victims. The mother perjured herself. The parents have lied repeatedly since this started.

The parents claimed they had no idea Trayvon seldom went to school, had been suspended several times for robbery and drugs. They claimed they did not know their son was a drug dealer. They said they did not know he had illegal hand guns.

They had no idea where he was that night.

I wonder if the author thinks people are stupid enough to believe his lies.

Rachel Jeantel's friendship with Martin stemmed from the fact he was one of the only people who never picked on her.

Is that why she goaded Trayvon the night he attacked Zimmerman by suggesting that he was attractive to a homosexual?

Well, if you live like a thug, you stand a chance of dying like a thug, with a hole in your chest cryin for yo' momma.

I'm amazed that these 'parents', who shuffled their kid off to the grandmother to be raised, put more effort into getting Trayvon's (TM) name trademarked and trying to make a buck off the wannabe thug's death than they did raising him.

The only person I have seen more shameless is the clown we have in the White Hut.

ME was allowed to change testimony on the length of time Saint Thug was alive after the shot. He was not allowed to change his testimony on how high Saint Thug was at the time of the incident. Since the medical report would contradict the testimony, it was thrown out before the Defense could use it. Can you smell railroad job?

There is every appearance that grieving mother Sybrina Fulton didn't concern herself with Trayvon Martin, she didn't raise him, his stepmother did. TM reportedly never even mentioned his mother's name while growing up, she was that much of an absentee.

His father left his minor son alone to take off with his girlfriend and did not even know he'd been killed, for days. How long did it take anybody to claim his body that was lying in a morgue?

These were not grieving parents, they couldn't be bothered, not until the professional racial grievance crowd smelled opportunity. Then the illusion began, little Trayvon, precious little child, grieving parents, all smoke and mirrors.

He seemed like a decent enough kid right up to a year or two prior, and for that I credit the only real mother he ever had, his stepmother who raised him, who isn't testifying for some odd reason.

He fell in with the wrong crowd, started behaving criminally and antisocially, thought he was going to beat down another soft, weak, creepy-@ cracker and ended up getting himself shot.

His grieving parents were nowhere to be found for days, his body unclaimed for longer than that. The loving family, poor little Trayvon PR spin fell apart long ago for all but the blinkered few for whom race trumps all, who seem to believe that Zimmerman was required by law not to observe what he believed to be suspicious behavior in his neighborhood, and furthermore that he had no right to defend his life because he was not completely incapacitated.

no it isn’t.

if anything it’s the fear of every non-black ccw person that has a black thug attack them.

the liberal gets it backward - surprise - and insults every black family by assuming every child in the family is a gangster druggie burglar like trayvon was.

In the two months following Trayvon Martin’s death, black assailants carried out at least 14 fourteen known attacks against white victims with the idea of “avenging” the fallen youth.

In East Toledo, six juveniles beat a 78-year-old white man, shouting: “This is for Trayvon … Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man]!”

In Gainesville, five blacks shouting “Trayvon!” beat a 27-year-old white man, leaving his face permanently disfigured. In another Gainesville incident, a black crowd shouting “Trayvon!” assaulted and stomped on a white man who was trying to recover his female companion’s purse from the hands of a black thief.

In Chicago, two black teenagers beat and robbed a 19-year-old white man because, as one of the attackers explained, they were angry about Trayvon Martin.

In Baltimore, a group of blacks beat and robbed a white man, stripping him naked, then posted a video of the assault online with the caption: “me an my boys helped get justice fore trayvon.”

In Mobile, a white man named Matthew Owens was brutalized by twenty African Americans armed with brass knuckles, bricks, chairs, bats and steel pipes after he asked them to stop playing basketball in the street directly in front of his home. As the assailants left the scene, one of them looked back at the victim, who was bleeding profusely, and shouted,: “Now that’s justice for Trayvon!”

It is unlikely that many Americans have heard of these racial attacks, because the perpetrators are protected by a media that does not want to notice that the racists are black, and their victims are white.

From the link below:

NONE of the above were covered by the New York Times or on NBC News.

I keep thinking about the Epic Beard Man video, in which young punk and old dude exchange heated words, then old dude goes to front of bus and young punk to back, is goaded into action by a female bystander, reconsiders, goes up front to the old dude and throws the first punch, and summarily gets creamed by a guy old enough to be his grandfather.

Now that young punk with the attitude on that bus was a spiritual brother to Mr. Martin, but he ended up with a bloody nose.

The old dude was not spoiling for a fight. It was clearly self-defense.

Very similar scenario.

Oh, and the young punk’s friends were recording it on their cell phones. “You could press charges bro!”

Very few people, outside of Hitler, “deserved to die.” Nevertheless, smoking (a liberal bugaboo) WILL make you more LIKELY to die...one reason that all thinking parents TEACH THEIR CHILDREN NOT TO BEHAVE IN THIS WAY to keep them safe. I have done this with my kids. I would also council them “don’t under any circumstances corner someone you don’t know in the dark if you don’t know if the are armed and beat their skull against the pavement, beating them to the ground. Beating someone you don’t know could get you shot. Oh, and also, don’t post pictures of you online smoking pot and doing gang signs. Because I love you too much to have you act like a thug and a moron, because no matter what color you are, we are NOT thugs, and I won’t have you acting like one.” Also, kids...don’t stick your face in a glass furnace. I shouldn’t have to tell you not to do something stupid, but I would be a bad parent if I didn’t teach you what you need to be safe.
