The Ugly Truth About Trayvon Martin

by Mychal Massie on July 16, 2013 in Daily Rant, Race & Politics

There is one reason and one reason alone that Trayvon Martin is dead today and that reason is he attacked a man with a licensed firearm who used it. It’s not pretty – it’s not pleasant – but it’s true.

George Zimmerman did not jump (read attack) Martin. Just the opposite. Martin attacked him. All else notwithstanding, Martin jumped Zimmerman for no defendable reason, and he paid the ultimate price for his ill-conceived decision.

George Zimmerman did not kill Martin because of the color of his skin, and it is a damnable lie to claim otherwise. George Zimmerman shot and killed Martin because Martin was attacking and beating him. The ugly truth is just that simple. To raise the specter of skin color and to clothe the event in vestiges of racialization and a zeitgeist of rampant racism is nothing more than an attempt to obfuscate that single, salient truth.

George Zimmerman was a member of his neighborhood watch. The function of a neighborhood watch is to watch and report suspicious and/or unlawful activities taking place in a particular neighborhood. It was dark, it was raining, and Martin appeared to be acting suspiciously. A neighborhood watch volunteer following for purposes of observation and giving the police accurate information is not an assault on color. I submit it is inculcated denial to not recognize this.

The jury might have been prevented from hearing certain facts about Martin, but those of us in the public weren’t. Space doesn’t permit me to detail all in print as I will in on-air interviews, but suffice it to say the figurative exhumation of Martin in the image of Emmett Till is an affront to even the most ignorant of racialists and morally opprobrious in the truest definition, but it’s obviously not out of character for those eager to do same.

Emmett Till was the 14-year-old young man who was brutally murdered and mutilated specifically because of his skin color after he allegedly engaged flirtatiously with a 21-year-old white woman who owned a store in Money, Mississippi.

For Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder to now announce the Department of Justice (DOJ) is opening an investigation to see if Martin’s civil rights were violated by George Zimmerman is cruel irony. Holder refused to have the DOJ investigate much less prosecute one of the most undeniably grievous incidents of civil rights violations since the end of Jim Crow. I’m speaking of the New Black Panthers voter intimidation in Philadelphia, PA in 2008.

I returned home to Florida Saturday after spending some three weeks on the road. About two hours after the jury in the George Zimmerman trial handed down the “not guilty” verdict, as I was exiting my local pharmacy, I overheard a man say, with a degree of sarcasm, to the man with him “They feel if we don’t care about killing ourselves why should they?”

T

he man, who happened to be an American of color, was wrong. We (read Americans) do care that blacks are killing themselves in record numbers. It’s those they extol as so-called leaders who do not care. Holder isn’t having the DOJ look into the civil rights of the more than 200 people killed in Chicago so far this year. Jesse Jackson lives in Chicago, but he isn’t leading any marches or protests against the black-on-black murders there. And perhaps it’s out of respect for territory, but Al Sharpton isn’t leading any there either. Sarcasm intended.

A report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics shows 8,000-9,000 blacks are murdered in the United States each year, and 93 percent of those murders are committed by other blacks.

How many of those families have Obama, Holder, Jackson, Sharpton, or the same media trollops who are fanning the flames of “It’s because Martin was black,” spoken out regarding those ugly statistics?

Those who emphasize that Martin was unarmed should be asked “what if he had been?” If Martin was violent enough to attack and beat George Zimmerman when Martin didn’t have a weapon – what would he have done were he to have had one?

No parents should outlive their children. To do so creates a vacuum of inconsolable loss. And certainly the Martin family is suffering from the loss of their son. But specific to that point, it is a transpicuous and vulgar display of race-mongering by mobocrats who use race as currency to validate their own existence.

Like it or not, agree or not, Martin made a decision to behave like a common street thug and gangsta when he attacked George Zimmerman. That decision speaks volumes about his character, (or lack thereof). There is an attempt to portray Martin as worthy of deification, but I submit that he chose to attack another person for what amounts to no reason at all and that speaks volumes pursuant to his real character.

How many reading this have children who would physically attack someone for the reasons Martin did? I know, without hesitation, that my son wouldn’t. The ugly truth is that Martin was given to the violent mentality of thinking he could bully a white person, and it cost him his life.

Here is one comment on this article:

The jury was that of six WOMEN, who spent over three weeks diligently taking notes, and listening intently to the prosecution and the defense witnesses and lawyers, all day long. They were sequestered from their families, and they went into a room and decided upon a verdict after debating for 16 hours. They worked together, whilst people, who had already judged George Zimmerman, year and a half ago, chanted and waved signs accusing him and calling for his head, outside of the court house. If the verdict had been reversed, they would have danced in the streets. They would not have questioned their decision. These were brave, intelligent women. Mothers. This case was brought about by so many interest groups using it to promote their own agendas. This was NOT A civil rights case. This was NOT a case based on racial hatred. This was NOT a case about whether or not a man should be allowed to carry a concealed weapon. This was NOT a case about whether or not the 'stand your ground' law in Florida is right or wrong. This case was about whether or not a man, who was legally carrying a concealed weapon, acted in self defense. Now, the verdict has been heard, the same people spouting about all of the above issues, will continue their play on their individual agendas. Obama and Eric Holder, will use it to re ignite the argument about guns and the laws pertaining to them. The NAACP will use it to promote civil rights issues, and pathetic little folk, like Al Sharpton et al, who have no talent, but are useful to the media, to keep around, will continue to make boat loads of money, doing the only thing that they know how, riling up black Americans and continuing to divide the country deeper. All of these people, and/or their agencies, are very rich. They have hung/ clung to the race card for years and will never let it go, because it is what puts bread on their tables. It is a very lucrative business.

At this point Tracy Martin needs to man up and tell everyone to calm down and accept the verdict, although he won't because he was promised a pot of gold somewhere over the rainbow, and has to cover up his own guilt.

Tracy Martin left home with his girlfriend, leaving Travon alone for the night, expecting his seventeen year old son who he knows is having discipline problems not to do anything stupid. Trayvon immediately defies his father after his back is turned, and goes out to buy ingredients to get high. He gets noticed by Zimmerman and decides to attack the only person who knows he is outside the house, not where he is supposed to be. Had Tracy Martin stayed home with his troubled teen son and not trusted him so much, he'd still be alive.

Because he wouldn't get out of the middle of the street and walk on the sidewalk.

No wait, it's because he wouldn't be quiet in the theater.

No wait, it's because he was wearing a disguise and acting suspiciously in a neighborhood with a recent spate of crime.

No, it must be because his pants were hitched below his knees.

Yes they do. I live in a good neighborhood non-minority neighbor of mine had a 19 year old non-minority son who went with 3 non-minority friends to burglarize a house in another part of the county for the second time in a few weeks. My neighbor’s son went through the jimmied window of the darkened house first. He was greeted with a blast from a 12 guage 00 buck shot round in the chest from the homeowner. Died instantly. His 3 accomplises fled but were caught and are serving time as accomplises to murder. Home owner has not had anymore unexpected guests. The 19 year old grew up here and was a good kid until he moved out and went to live with his birth father.

Obama wants to make the case that civil rights haven't moved forward since 1963 when Byron De La Beckwith was acquitted of the assassination of Medger Evers by an all white jury (loaded with southern democrats). By doing this, he keeps colored people firmly under the thumb of the Democratic party. He's spreading a powerful mind virus: only by voting for Democrats will you ever obtain justice in America.

The reality is, however, by voting for Democrats, all they'll find is higher than the national average poverty, unemployment, incarceration, drug addiction, high school drop out rates, teen pregnancies, welfare dependency, etc.

Brown, Hispanic, partly black person. Though even La Raza seems to think Zimmerman was white, white had nothing to do with it. Perhaps egged on by his female friend Jeantel, Martin was a thug, through and through, and paid the price.

Zimmerman’s ‘racial identity’ is view with amusement here in south Louisiana. He is what is known locally as a ‘creole’. Someone who is mostly European descent but with a admixture of Negro and maybe Indian. Let’s put it this way. Mr. Zimmerman in 1960 would only have entered the now defunct Brennan’s Restaurant through the service entrance. The closest he would have gotten to table service was in busing the tables and moving up to waiter after a few years.

There is a distinct possibility that the voters have permanently crossed to the dark side enumerated above (to which list other items could be added), allowing the Demonrats to put us (and the US) on an irreversible path to decline and fall. There may be people alive today who may live to see it happen. Sorry for my pessimism.

Zimmerman had a valid concealed carry permit, did he not? (As I recall, that was brought out during the trial.) What other "license" would be required for him to carry the weapon?

I wonder if the following would reduce racial tensions: George Zimmerman holds a press conference and says something like, “I don’t know how anyone got the idea I was white. I’m brown as can be, with the background to prove it, and — despite what La Raza seems to think — I’m Hispanic.”

30 years later but yeah. Fact is, black people have never had more opportunity than they do today yet they still manage to have a disproportionately higher incidence of poverty, unemployment, high school drop outs, teen pregnancies, STDs, incarceration, etc. It can’t be the fault of the Democratic party obviously so it must be the fault of white men, the same kind of white men that acquitted that other white man, George Zimmerman of murdering that innocent angelic 12 year old black boy who dreamed of being an airline pilot someday. :gagwithspoon

Obama wants to make the case that civil rights haven't moved forward since 1963

George Zimmerman was not guilty, legally or morally. He was declared "NOT GUILTY" by the facts and by a fair jury of honorable citizens who refused to be bullied by the prosecutors and the comedic judge.

A just verdict was given. What it could not do, and President Obama ought to have done, was to declare Zimmerman innocent and Martin guilty of his own demise.

Obama did not have the character or the guts to set the record straight, which would have greatly worked to defuse the fractiousness of deliberately deluded millions. Instead, he further poured more verbal accelerant on the fires of a riotous crowd mindset.

Had Trayvon finished what he started, he would have slain George, and would by now have been arrested, tried, and found "GUILTY" of premeditated murder.

As Obama said (rightly?) "Trayvon Martin could have been my son." Was he right, characterwise?

The permit is for concealed carry, not for owning and certainly not for the handgun.

Florida does not require a “license” to own or possess a firearm. The permit is only required if you wish to carry it on your person.

All True.

However-—Let’s take it back a few days.

IF Trayvon Martin hadn’t been behaving badly in school—for a repeated time of disciplinary problems....

IF Trayvon Martin hadn’t been caught with burglary tools & jewelry he could not explain in his backpack......

IF Trayvon Martin hadn’t punched a bus driver.....

He never would have been in Sanford in the first place.....

Florida does not require a “license” to own or possess a firearm. The permit is only required if you wish to carry it on your person.

New York State (and I believe Illinois) requires at least a premises permit for each handgun purchased and kept at home or in a business. Florida is one of many states that does not require a permit to possess a handgun.

Carrying such a gun is a felony in NY or FL. Most states require that a person be licensed to carry a deadly weapon concealed. Vermont requires neither for an adult, IIRC.

Handgun possession and carry across the US is a state-by-state patchwork quilt of some very threatening statutes. For sure, avoid possessing or giving an LEO any hint of transporting a gun in NJ.

Just a quick note, when reading an interview by the young lady talking to TM then night he died, she said 2 very interesting things in the same interview. The first was that she encouraged TM to run, but he would not, because his brother was at home and this person “Might be a rapist”, in fact there was nobody at home, he was alone for the evening with his Father out on a date with the woman who owned the Condo, which they both were visiting. Second what the comment about the white A@@ cracka, which she defined as a cop wannabe, or a security guard. WHAT??? Thi means that TM KNEW that GM was acting in the capacity of a Neighborhood Watch, security guard, or cop wannabe, not as a person who was seeking to harm him. TM could have gone straight to the condo, and none of this would happen. Rather, he was afraid, and decided to confront his fear, not with conversation, rather with attack. As the dispatcher told GZ that he did not need to follow TM, he turned around to return to his truck. As he started back, abandoning the search, rather to wait for the police car that was in route, He was ATTACKED by TM, the rest, sadly is history.
My final point is towards the behavior by those who did not agree with the Jury decision, and have embarked on harming innocents in TMs name. A sane question would be, what would this encourage would be victims to do...the answer is one they may not have considered. With random beat downs, knock out games, etc. I see an armed citizenry more ready than ever thought, ready to no longer be silent victims... When you take the path of mob rule and lawlessness, you may pay a higher price than you planned.

Martin was not killed because he was Black. He was not killed because of a racist profiling a black man. He was killed because of a culture that glorifies the gangsta rap I can do anything cause I am Black and I am entitled mentality. This is what caused Martin to think it was acceptable to react violently and attack Zimmerman. Martin paid the ultimate price for that mentality. Sadly, until that mentality is changed this scenario will play out many more times. That Martin is dead is a tragedy, but it is not a tragedy of racism. It is a tragedy of culture.

What’s truly odd about the discussions of this case are the complete disconnect between blacks and everyone else in answering the question “Who started it?” wrt the Martin-Zimmerman altercation.

Whites will say that Martin performed the initial assault by punching Zimmerman. The evidence is: Zimmerman’s testimony, eyewitness testimony (called by the prosecution), forensic testimony, injuries to GZ, none to TM. Physical assault is a felony offense, thus becoming the trigger for the eventual self-defense shooting.

Blacks will say Zimmerman committed the assault, for a vast variety of wholly invented reasons that are pure supposition and not supported by fact. “Stalking,” “following,” “getting out of the car.” I’ve heard arguments that GZ is racist, GZ chased down and caught TM at gunpoint, GZ was holding TM at gunpoint, and stuff that goes even more off the tracks than that in an effort to claim TM was “standing his ground” against an “assault.” Yet the only acts that are supported by evidence (keeping an eye on/following), are not criminal in nature.

There is this absolute and razor-sharp disconnect in the ability to accept the evidence, and continually promulgating theory after theory by which GZ would be criminally culpable. And if the jury acquitted then they’re criminally culpable too. I have no idea where this comes from but there you go. It’s damn near universal in what I’ve heard from self-described members of “the black community.”

What’s truly odd about the discussions of this case are the complete disconnect between blacks and everyone else in answering the question

Agree.. Frankly, it's a little frightening to me... the absolute disconnect with reality.

If you're going to shoot someone,in cold blood... you don't SCREAM for help for 45 seconds before doing it.. OR.. just in case you think it was TM screaming, you don't ALLOW someone to scream that long before shooting them... that just attracts attention, and perhaps gets a witness to see what you've done.

GZ was, clearly, getting beaten.. and screaming.. for QUITE a long time. Shooting was NOT his first thought. It was a last resort.

It's hard to believe SO MANY people seem SO CERTAIN about a fact set that is SO WRONG!

Yes they do. I live in a good neighborhood non-minority neighbor of mine had a 19 year old non-minority son who went with 3 non-minority friends to burglarize a house in another part of the county for the second time in a few weeks. My neighbor’s son went through the jimmied window of the darkened house first. He was greeted with a blast from a 12 guage 00 buck shot round in the chest from the homeowner. Died instantly. His 3 accomplises fled but were caught and are serving time as accomplises to murder. Home owner has not had anymore unexpected guests. The 19 year old grew up here and was a good kid until he moved out and went to live with his birth father.

A fascinating incident. Bad habits are so much easier to develop than good ones. That is why society was so ‘oppressive’ towards young people back when we had an intact family structure and a functioning national culture. Even with a culture that had very long teeth there were plenty of boys from ‘good’ families that ended up wearing stripes. The difference, and a big one, is that they were considered disgraces and not ‘cool’. The crumbling of the family is bring the thug culture to white middle class America right along with soaring illegitimacy rates and the plague of fatherlessness.

Exactly correct. You get an A+. His father had been totally absent. While his mother had really tried to keep him on track and did a good job until he wanted freedom from rules. At 18 he moved in with his deadbeat dad and had free rein. Pretty good deal to have no rules. It only cost him his life.
