A coalition of LGBT civil rights groups on July 15 signed an open letter calling for justice for Trayvon Martin, the black teenager fatally shot in Sanford, Fla., last February by George Zimmerman.
A jury of six has found Zimmerman, who says he acted in self-defense after following Martin with a gun, not guilty of second-degree homicide or the lesser charge of manslaughter.
The statement from the LGBT rights coalition, released as an increasing number of civil rights groups are calling for Justice Department action, said, "We cannot begin to imagine the continued pain and suffering endured by Trayvon Martins family and friends. We stand in solidarity with them as they continue to fight for justice, civil rights and closure. And we thank everyone who has pushed and will continue to push for justice.
"Trayvon Martin deserves justice and his civil rights. We support the organizations and community leaders who are urging the federal government to explore every option to ensure that justice is served for Trayvon and that his civil rights are honored and respected. But our work does not end there: we will honor Trayvon Martin by strengthening our commitment to end bias, hatred, profiling and violence across our communities.
"We represent organizations with diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender constituencies. Our community has been targets of bigotry, bias, profiling and violence. We have experienced the heart-breaking despair of young people targeted for who they are, who they are presumed to be, or who they love: Rashawn Brazell, Lawrence King, Ali Forney, Brandon Teena, Brandon White, Matthew Shepard, Marco McMillian, Angie Zapata, Sakia Gunn, Gwen Araujo and countless others.
"Every person, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity, must be able to walk the streets without fear for their safety. Justice delayed is justice denied and in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 'a right delayed is a right denied.' We honor Trayvon."
The coalition is led by the National Black Justice Coalition and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. The Human Rights Campaign also signed the letter.
Another reason why you NEVER get a leftist interest group any slack. They just cover for one another, regardless of the corresponding stupidity.
Stage 2 class warfare according to Anita Moncreif.
What do vindictive queers know of justice?
Trayvon got his justice already.
Until a thug like Trayvon Martin profiles you in the West Village and beats you to a pulp yelling “no homo!”
Raging freaks rage on because being anti-homo is racist too.
It was a terrible thing. Zimmerman should have just let young Martin continue bashing his brains out. Then all of these leftist groups could be happy.
It’s sad really, Trayvon never had a chance to
explore his gayness. There was another sensitive
side to the gangsta thug and he never got to see it.
“All unions have determined that the outcome of the TM trial was total injustice. P.S. We still hate Obamacare.”
Martin hated homos. DeeDee said so.....
Proof positive that this is purely political. All we need now is for the trade unions to weigh in.
>> Every person, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity, must be able to walk the streets without fear for their safety.
Y’all faggots DO realize that Trayvon Martin “profiled” Zimmerman as a “creepy ass” cracka — i.e. possible homosexual?
So if ANYONE was a threat to you queer vermin, it was the little black thug, not Zimmerman.
I didn’t realize he was gay. But he seemed kind of wussy.
trayvon, the up&coming gangster, got his justice. The “queers” complain too much, don’t they.

Did they sign in cursive?
>> The queers complain too much, dont they.
Bitching and drama sort of go with the disease.
I never knew Trayvon was a faggot.
Those LGBT guys what a great group of gender benders.
One day the real people in this country will have to clean up the mess that has been made.
I think people who use their fingers for tribal or gang talk are all faggots.
The usual suspects checking in....
