I find her statement astonishingly honest, but her reasoning is flawed. A feral youth, growing up in a thug culture, a theif, drug abuser, often violent and bareley educated... yup; that’s a bogeyman!

Suspended from school when this incident happened? Why the suspension?
” A feral youth, growing up in a thug culture, a thief, drug abuser, often violent and barely educated.”
That’s the point. They want you and I to see that as their “normal”. If you or I don’t accept their “normal” then there’s something wrong with us i.e. racist.
See how this game is played?
And ther is plenty of blame to go around. Just look at the cesspool called Detroit.
“A feral youth, growing up in a thug culture,”
A betrayed youth, too. Betrayed by his parents. When he was ~2 his father started cheating on his mother. When TM was 3 his father, Tracy, divorced Sybrina in order to marry the co-homewrecker, Alicia. Incredibly, Sybrina handed her beautiful, innocent toddler over to Alicia—a woman TM didn’t know from Adam.
What kind of mother does that? How cd she look into the scared, tearful eyes of her precious baby & hand him to a stranger?????
Against all odds, TM bonded w Alicia. She treated him as one of her own, & he did well in school & appeared to flourish.
But tomcat Tracy wasn’t done. He started cheating on Alicia w Brandi Green. He cheated for 2 yrs, & then divorced Alicia. I’m going from memory, but I believe TM was ~15 when the divorce came through.
Tracy ripped TM out of the only home he’d never known—away from the mother he loved—& handed him back over to the woman who’d rejected him: Sybrina.
& TM’s troubles began in earnest. He got into drugs, fighting & breaking & entering. He was transferred out of the good school near Sybrina’s house & into a worse school a greater distance away. In addition to 3 suspensions, he racked up truant 53 days.
Sybrina’s answer was to keep kicking TM out of her house. He usually went to live w an aunt & uncle. When his fighting & misbehavior got to be too much for them, they tried to pan him off onto Tracy.
There is an online rant of Tracy’s talking about his rage w TM. He says he’s about to go from using a belt to a closed fist—& wd need bail $ for what ensued. When cautioned by relatives, he says he needs “a drink & a lapdance”. He intimates he wd take TM along for both. The aunt TM sometimes stayed w urges him to pass TM on to them so they can add their harsh discipline to his. A great lot of wonderful choices/people TM had in his life. Oh, & Sybrina made no secret of preferring her ‘real’ son, Jaharvis, to Trayvon. How’s that for a toxic mix?
Not absolving TM. Just mentioning that the parents treated him like crap. One might say, in ref to Sybrina handing her precious child over to the co-homewrecker/a stranger, worse than crap. Slave owners were vilified [& rightly so] for splitting up families & taking children away from their parents. Now the black community is doing this to their own kids on their own volition.
& now the abusers want to profit off TM’s corpse. There are no words.
