Reids guest, former United Nations Ambassador under President Jimmy Carter, Andrew Young, interrupted her when she asked about what kind of problem Martins killing represents for the black community.
No, Young said. Trayvon is a martyr.
Young noted that George Zimmermans story is just as much a tragedy, because his life is ruined over a love of guns and a false sense of what manhood is.

Former UN Ambassador, legislator and Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young one of Martin Luther King Jr.'s closest aides tells Newsmax that its particularly appropriate for President Barack Obamas second inauguration to fall on the day honoring the slain civil rights icon Obama owes his very existence to the man whose life and death broke down centuries-old barriers for African-Americans.
Young also said in an exclusive Newsmax TV interview that if King were alive today, he would commend Obama for his controversial executive orders and additional efforts to tighten federal gun laws.
Trayvon was a punk who encountered consequences for the first and last time in his life.
Race Card Obama 3rd term coming soon
Trayvon was a thug who liked getting his buzz on, he was no martyr.
Thugvon got what he deserved. That’s no “martyr” that’s just another statistic which Andy’s ilk usually ignores
What do you expect Andrew Young to say he is a Obama vote
95% of them have one mind.
Martin is a dead POS if they want to call him a martyr, they only show their ignorance.
Man, these guys never let go . . . can’t they moveon.org or something?
And then, after being shot say, "You got me."
Better he is a dead and martyr than a living thug.
Is it still a race war if the casualties include leftists?
I am sick of listening to race haters,
A martyr? A martyr to the well documented aggressiveness and paranoia of “lean”? A martyr to stolen women’s jewelry? A martyr to the marijuana that the medical examiner found in his system? A martyr to the schoolmate who “didn’t bleed enough” when No Limits Nigga decided to beat him silly?
Trayvon is dead. So is Chris Lane. We may never know all the circumstances about Trayvon’s death, but we know Chris was murdered for a thrill.
To all the race baiters: FU. Including Andrew Young.
Tra-thug tried to smash his head into the ground because he didn't like the way GZ looked at him. GZ fought back, and killed the wannabe thug. We should be celebrating GZ's courage.
The Palestinians make heroes and martyrs out of their thugs, too. It tells you a lot about people when you see who their heroes and martyrs are.
If they want to make Trayvon Martin and Al Sharpton the face of the democratic party then I say let them.
I know the Muslims have martyrs that blow themselves up for Baal or Allah but I didn’t know that the “thugocracy” had martyrs that went and got themselves shot for assault.
How many ways can the assorted race baiters conjure up to ignore the evidence in the case? It’ll be more months and maybe years before we’ll know. I don’t remember any story where so many went to such absurd lengths to ignore the evidence, and to construct false narratives to serve their racist purposes.
I get this screwball confused with screwball Julian Bond.
Yeah. He’s a “martyr” just like every raghead that ever wore a suicide vest and killed American soldiers and innocent civilians. The 20 maggots who flew the planes into the Trade Center towers and the Pentagon are also “martyrs”. Lighten up Andy. You’re a moron. “Trayvon” was a two bit punk.
My day would not be complete unless I’d heard Jimmy Carter’s former UN Ambassador, Andrew Young (racist and Communist), praising Trayvon Martin as a martyr. Young is a sleaze. Too bad we can’t export him to Cuba where he’d find his true calling.
Tell me, Andrew, what is the definition of manhood in the black community? Is manhood killing an 80 year old vet "just for the fun of it"? Is manhood fathering multiple children, but not sharing the responsibility of raising the child with a father present? I could go on, but, please, enlighten me as to your definition of manhood.
like 100k other petty criminals with addictions and gangsta thug learning from teeeeveeee. Cause they’s impohtent dontcha know.
Everything— the side or back worn ball cap, the falling down pants, the ultra baggie ones, the b-ball nba shoes, the teeth grille and chain bling. All saying one thing: I’m a nobody... and this is how I compensate. You will pay attention to me as I put a cap in you.
Until their surprise that there are many more tribes than theirs who are far more dangerous when pushed.
It's become ad infinitum absurdumus maximus!!!
Just thinkin and sayin...
Indeed! The backlash is coming.
Andrew Young has proven himself to be no better than the rest of the pack of race-mongering demagogues. I can’t think of one civil rights “leader” alive today that is worth more than a bucket of warm spit.
Yes Trayvon Obama was a martyr for the cause of terrorizing White people. As the Left likes to say: “The work goes on.”
Trayvon is hereby to be referred to as the Patron Saint of Purple Drank.
Trayvon indeed is a martyr in the same sense that SA Brownshirt Horst Wessel was a martyr . What we are seeing here is a propaganda exercise that has as its ultimate goal blood in the streets so the political class can exercise more draconian police powers to ensure the continued perks & privileges of those in high political office but with less interaction with we the people.
Young was able to get his POV out to the 17 viewers left that comprise the MSNBC viewing audience.
