Hundreds marched through the streets of New York City on Wednesday night in memory of and to protest the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, in what organizers called the “Million Hoodie March.”

The march began in Manhattan’s Union Square, where a rally in support of Martin had taken place. Martin’s father Tracy Martin and mother Sybrina Fulton, in New York for interviews with major media outlets, made an appearance at the rally to thank the crowd for its enthusiasm. ”My heart is in pain,” Fulton said, according to the AP.

The MSM is using this story to express their hatred for conservatives...

Here’s two journalists talking when they don’t know a conservative is in the room:

Aren’t both men in this story Hispanic? Does anyone have a picture of the teenager? My local paper carried a picture - looks like it was taken when he was 12 or 13...

Has this incident been blamed on Sarah Palin yet?

The organizers of this event seem to have a problem with the concept of “orders of magnitude.”

The only account I read of this story does make Zimmerman out to be a maniac. The kid was walking home talking on his cell phone to his girlfriend and this guy pegs him for a thug and goes to confront him, killing him instead. If these are all the facts, it is indeed a sad story fueled by the self proclaimed neighborhood watch guy’s overzealousness and stupidity. But what all the reports fail to mention, and what I think is important, is that the black culture has brought this on themselves. The pop culture of blacks celebrates thugs, immorality, violence and fear and is broadcast all over the place in the media. Some idiot neighborhood watch yahoo is bound to see every black kid in a hoodie as a crack dealer. I once knew a very genteel black woman from Georgia. She taught school once upon a time and told me that she would never allow black students to wear anything other than conservative clothing. Why? Because she said because of the way blacks portray themselves in the media to the public, they are perceived by that public as potentially criminal.As a black , therefore. you must conscientiously look and speak differently than the gangster blacks look and speak. Once blacks as a race condemn rap music, charlatans like Al Sharpton et al, and all the other trappings of their present culture, then they will be taken, as a race, seriously. Until then, they have a lot of work to do.

How do blacks think up these names? These spellings?

I’m pretty sure that there in no thinking involved, and darn little spelling. Maybe it’s what Momma screamed in ebonics while in labor.

The race-baiters need to let the facts emerge. Maybe this was a legal act...maybe not. The fact that the uber-race-baiter, notsosharp-ton, will be there “protesting” is disgusting. Didn’t he lie about tawana brawley and inspire the killings of several people in nyc?

"Aren’t both men in this story Hispanic?"

According to Zimmerman's (the shooter) family, he is Hispanic. I confess I'm baffled by the "hierarchy of victimhood" as it stands in Obama's "Post-Racial" 2012.

I guess it's OK for an African-American to shoot a Hispanic, but not the other way around? And the Indian convenience store clerk may have a darker skin than either, but he's fair game at any time? I suppose African-American/Hispanic would trump Cuban/Hispanic?

I wonder if there was a parade to get in the employment line, how many of these clowns would have shown up.

Hopefully this “racial” motivated alleged crime backfires on the shills for the dems. His Excellency is already guaranteed 95% of the black vote, perhaps he may lose some of the other support if his aggatators foment some racial based unrest.

Apparently self-defense isn't enough. The facts are starting to come out about the case.

“Million Hoodie March” in New York Rallies Support for Trayvon Martin"

Or rather, to support manufacturing evidence of murder, that doesn't seem to exist so far. The constitution and the law doesn't seem to be supporting the left's "feelings" that this was murder.

Why not just organize a "Million Ski Mask March?"

Million Hoodie March isn’t this usually referred to as a perp walk?

I find it slightly odd how "the first black president" Obama, who was so eager to comment on the Professor Gates controversy, strangely isn't touching this one with a ten foot pole. During yesterday's press briefing, when asked his press Secretary gave some extremely weak comment about it being a local matter and the Whitehouse not having any official position. In fact, if George W. Bush was still in office and made the same weak comment the entire "hoodie" march would have been about how the racist white guy in the oval office didn't care about blacks.

This leads me to believe that the Whitehouse has probably reviewed the same evidence the police and Prosecuting Attorney did and come to the same conclusion, that the shooting was justified. Because you know they would be the first to try to link "Obama 2012" to the "Hoodie Movement" if there was any real racism there.

Between this, the OWS gang and the Kony 2012 crap, this country is ticked and looking for a fight. Period.

I think I’m going to buy more rice.

Those TV's from back in the Rodney King day's are really showing their age. Many from "the community" have been looking for a chance to upgrade to a flat panel LCD or Plasma.

Tawana Brawley was certainly a big, fat lie. I will say that lie started with her and her mother, but yes Sharpton was part of it.

And yes, he is also to at least some degree responsible for the murders at Freddie’s Fashion Mart in Harlem. He railed against “white interlopers” because a Jewish guy owned the store, but having just checked this on Wiki evidently the white guy really had little to do with the situation, he was just a middle man. So Sharpton (and others) ranted and raved and then some crazy person went in, shot up the store and set it on fire. Seven store employees were murdered. The assailant also died.

”My heart is in pain,” Fulton said, according to the AP.

'But this all expense paid trip to NYC is way cool.' (BTW, who is paying for it?)

We are all still waiting for the march for the white kid who was set on fire, and for the elderly couple who were attacked by blacks (she was raped and murdered, he is clinging to life).

(more crickets)
