LGBT groups call for justice for Trayvon Martin

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 Martin’s 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.

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.

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 never knew Trayvon was a faggot.

Now the queers are squawking over Trayvon?

Was Trayvon one of them?

Maybe there is more to that Obama “If I had a son he would look like Trayvon” stuff than meets the eye.

Maybe he’d be light in the loafers like Obama.

Did Trayvon think George was a faggot cruising for young tail, and decide to pummel him? Even so, teenagers should leave the queers alone.

The Marxist Fifth Column badly use groups like HIspanics, Blacks, Jews and those caught in homosexual behaviors. They claim they care about their priorities. It’s always baloney. All the want is power. They are not idealists. They haven’t a clue about how to improve on a darn good system all around.

I guess those who signed identified with the term “cracked ass cracker” not knowing when spoken by a straight person of color it is an insult without the softening modifier of “MOTHER” attached.

Would they be demanding justice for the Zimmerman family if he been murdered by Saint Skittles?

No need to reply. We all know the answer.

If they really want closure, all they have to do is just shut up and quit picking scabs.

Did Trayvon think George was a faggot cruising

Exactly.

According to his gf Jabba, St. Travon referred to George as a "creepy ass-cracker" watching him.

Jaba teased St. Travon about getting raped.
At that point St. Travon decided to seek out George and do a beat down for dissing his manhood.
Probably with encouragement from Jabba.

St. Travon's homophobia was the motive for assaulting George.

this is no longer about martin, this is about social engineering via violence and bullying.

In LA there are vandals roaming (FNC). Remember Martin’s father is a crip.
