they hope to raise money to help other families struck by tragedy.
Tragedy? Do they mean the tragedy of having a son filled with hate that attacks a man for following him? This kid was filled with rage and it got him killed. What a sad shame that a whole race will choose this as its hero and turn a blind eye to men like Frederick Douglas and Booker T.
Yeah, they’ll give the money to needy families.....SURE. S/
Sure. Right. Got it. Check.
I believe someone who's a fan of Chesterton's might remark upon the pitiful spectacle that ensues when the human soul's innate expectation of a Victim latches on to all the wrong ones.
always been a fan of George Washington Carver, myself. And Sly Stone. And Jimi. And Coltrane. etc.
If my relatives had done this I would haunt them.
I don’t know what to say about those who are making a quick buck. What about all the others that die everyday across the country? Why is Trayvon so special?
Well, maybe it’s time to print bumper sticker with “Justice for All” and “Innocent until proven guilty”. How about “Fair Trial for Zimmerman”, or “Jail the New Black Panthers”, “Spike Lee’s address is...”. “Race baiters for Trayvon”.

Sadly most black youth do not know who they are. They know Tupak and Biggie.
They hired a lawyer (not unreasonable) and lawyers do this sort of thing to keep the money rolling.
Wow, did you just open my eyes. What a heritage! How can they not now it?! Who has hoodwinked them and deprived them of their dignity?
Since so many drop out of school how can they learn. I surely don’t see the democrats doing anythinf to change the drop out rate.
They are scum who won the ghetto lottery.
Wow. I like to wield a razor-sharp pen but I have acknowledge a master when he’s present.
That is the term they use in the hood when someone is killed and the relatives profit off the racist publicity.
