Trayvon Martinís Parents Join Obama to Usher in 'My Brotherís Keeper' Initiative
Breitbart.com ^ | 2/28/2014 | Robert Wilde

Posted on 03/01/2014 6:47:55 AM PST by rktman

The late Trayvon Martin’s parents joined President Obama at the White House Thursday to help usher in the President’s initiative to help men of color choose a road to productivity and success.

Tracy and Sybrina’s son was killed two years ago in an altercation with security guard George Zimmerman. A jury found Zimmerman not guilty of murder, which caused nationwide protests from many who felt that the ruling was unjust.

Now, now. Don’t be a hater/racis’. LOL! The truth about tres-gone will NEVER see the light of day. If it does it’ll be a vast right wing whitey hate conspiracy to trash a fine upstanding choir boy who mowed old ladies lawns for free.

You are correct sir. We better get used to it, because it will only get worse. The government is full of racist MO FOs.

In the Bible story of Cain and Abel, the innocent Abel wasn’t trying to beat Cain to death, when he was killed. (”Am I my Brother’s Keeper” was Cain’s mocking response to God. Just like Obama to side with the blasphemer.)

The felonious assault of Trayvon Martin was stopped by an armed citizen.

This is admitting Trayvon was a thug who needed to "choose a road to productivity and success".

The phrase “my brother’s keeper”, is racist.
obamA is associating blacks and other minorities with a guy who killed his brother, then tried to cover up his crime.

No such thing. Ever heard of white privilege? White folks automatically have it a birth. I just checked to make sure my WPL was in order. (White Privilege License) Line cuts included. Fine dining discounts, lower taxes, free movie passes, etc. ;>}

So is this an admission that Saint Trayvon was indeed a seriously wayward black youth with poor parenting, or do they simply not comprehend the irony?

Do all these Brother's keepers have to have their own burglary tool?

There is nothing funny to me about Trayvon’s death or his altercation with Zimmerman, but how Trayvon was raised had almost all to do with his short lived life IMO.

His parents maybe need to host a “Don't Parent Like Us” campaign with Obama. More like what is needed IMO.

Dear Spike Lee Generation,

I am now watching Gigi and listening to the beautifully crafted lyrics and comparing them to Bouncy’s lyric of “he Monica Lewinskied on my gown”. Good luck with that “Brothers Keeper” stuff. You'll need it.

About the phrase 'my brother's keeper'.

It's most often used as a sentimental expression of concern or self sacrifice. What it actually is, is a murderer's snide response to a direct question from the God of the universe. There is nothing good about it.

Yes, exactly. It’s an implicit admission that Martin made bad choices (like skulking around neighborhoods after dark on rainy nights) that led to him getting killed.

The other irony here is that this is the kind of program Zimmerman was involved with, as a mentor, before the shooting.

I was kinda curious about that lyric. Shouldn’t it have been “bill clinton’d on my gown”? Maybe I’m just confused. Or maybe I’m not.

Well, why not. New verb could be applied to the tres-gone incident too. “Dude. He just trayvoned that punk.” i.e. shot to the chest. This could go on and on and.......

Repeatedly smashing a man’s head into the pavement because he saw something he didn’t like was the bad choice that got Trayvon shot in the chest.

Meanwhile, Zimmerman saved law abiding citizens, who are defenseless, from a similar vicious and senseless attack.

Since they attended the event at the request of Obama, I assume they are being reimbursed for their travel expenses. I would love to see the expense report they submitted. I’m guessing the trip is costing us a few hundred thousand bucks.

If Tracy had been his son’s keeper, perhaps he wouldn’t be dead now.

“The felonious assault of Trayvon Martin was stopped by an armed citizen.”

The tirade of felonious assaults by Trayvon Martin was ultimately stopped by an armed victim. He justifiably reaped what he had sown.

When Trayvon admitted to a friend that he had assaulted a bus driver, he became without doubt a public enemy. Interfering with a public transportation safety worker in the performance of his duty is a felony.

Zimmerman did many future victims a huge favor.

In the Soviet Union (and others) many people were classified as non persons. In Obama world, white youth (maybe all whites) are classified as non persons. I am sure most Freepers know there is a war going on out there, whether it is organized, or just purely random, only one side is fighting it. The bad thing is, I am convinced the government will never allow the other side to join in. Kind of sucks, but that is reality.
