"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public.

Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances because they do not want to lose their jobs.

There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well. -Booker T. Washington

pay homage to victims of racial violence

Does that include white victims of the black teenagers' so-called knockout game?

Maybe they should rename it for Channon Gail Christian, and Hugh Christopher Newsom who were tortured and murdered by blacks in a racial incident that was horrible beyond belief.

But no they name it after this drug dealing thief who was trying to kill a white Hispanic. Whever TF that is.

It’s good to hear that Princeton is going to so much trouble to acknowledge all the recent “knock-out game” victims.

Trayvon
by Maya Angelou

I sing of thee Trayvon
Lamented burnt umber crayon
Shoud of stayed at home
and got your lay-on
But you heard the siren song of wet grass
and headed for Seven Elevon.

Zimmerman the triggerman
Big game hunter lay in wait
White hispanic in a panic
Rubberheaded, held your fate.

By punching him, you tried to reason
You cant of known - was black-boy season
Stand your ground, ground and pound,
Frito Bandito shot you down.

I heard this a few days ago - it sounds just like someone’s head being pounded into the pavement.

So we grabbed a gangbanger
And we fought another round
We filled his head with cannonballs
And powdered his behind
And when we touched that powder off
That amish lost his mind

I love that song.

Reminds me of back in the 1980s, S.O.D (Stormtroopers of Death) wrote the touching and heartfelt Ballad of Jimi Hendrix.
