Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin protest: Students will march for 3 days
Posted on 04/06/2012 8:13:38 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
A coalition of college students will spend the next three days marching about 40 miles between Daytona Beach and Sanford to protest the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
The group, which calls itself the Dream Defenders, said the march is a "stand against racial profiling, institutional racism and the legacy of violence that continues to plague young people of color."

Is this the same “Institutional Racism” that has had Univeristy of Miami (integrated 1961), FSU (integrated 1962), and U of F (integrated 1958) all integrated longer than most of these punks parents have been alive?
Please march with Hoodies on.
Welcome to SUNNY and HOT Florida.
Guaranteed drop-out rate at least 30%.
Guessing that black-on-black crime isn't one of their agenda items....
Three days white folks will be safer from racial profiling, institutional racism and the legacy of violence that continues to plague young people of color.
From David Horowitz's FrontpageMag.com /DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"Throughout its history, one of RCP's [Revolutionary Communist Party's] principal objectives has been to foment civil unrest in the United States. The most notable example of such efforts occurred on April 29, 1992, when RCP members looted and trashed the downtown and government districts of Los Angeles, triggering the infamous Rodney King riots. During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.
Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"
"The RCP [Revolutionary Communist Party] upheld the 1992 sometimes-violent unrest in Los Angeles and nationally as a 'rebellion' in the aftermath of the Rodney King verdicts. Then-LAPD chief Daryl Gates alleged that the RCP was involved in the 'riots'. Los Angeles has long been one of the RCP's larger and more active branches. William 'Mobile' Shaw was a local leader who recently passed and received public commendation from the party."
"I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a rebellion."--Maxine Waters
The RCP calls for the violent overthrow of the U.S. government...
From the website of the Revolutionary Communist Party (revcom.us or rwor.org) :
"Create Public Opinion, Seize Power: We are preparing minds and organizing forces for the time when there is a major crack in the system, whenever it comes and wherever it comes from: an opening that makes it possible to bring the future Revolutionary Army of the Proletariat (R.A.P.) into the field and wage a revolutionary armed struggle that actually has a chance of winning.
And we have said that building our party itself is the most important part of organizing forces for revolution. This is true now, and it is true looking forward to the creation of that future R.A.P. and the waging of that armed struggle.":
Try marching in South Chicago. That's a better fit for your alleged issues.
I think they should start at Daytona Beach and march due east for three days...
Since two of the three are nearly gone, shouldn't they be protesting the one still prevalent? Over 90% of crimes against blacks are committed by other blacks.
They should be protesting the thug culture which, if Trayvon Martin had not embraced, he would have not attacked George Zimmerman and got himself shot.
Note to those who insist that racial profiling is still a problem: it is CRIMINAL profiling. They are not watching the black businessman, grandmom or teen in a private school uniform. They are watching those who choose to identify as part of the thug culture.
These guys are SO brave around little old ladies.
And WHO are Bari Shamazz???
All the businesses on the route need to close up and beef up security because history has shown that black riots are the euphemism for looting.
Maybe they can get some plastic bags and do a civic deed while on the march by picking up trash along the roadway.
If these little diversity socialists are against racial profiling, they will have to condemn themselves. They are the racists of the post segregation era.

THEY are the trash along the roadway.....
Will they all be looking thugly?
Truer words never spoken!
You wrote: “the Hispanic Democrat George Zimmerman was racist are good enough for these morons to march...”
For your records as a result of my tip of the iceberg research:
Let it be known that the “leader” of those “Dream Defender student” marchers is a 30 year old Hispanic (Cuban) who is one of Obama’s foot-soldier “community organizers” from way back with the nickname, “Lefty”:

Gabriel Pendas is the first to admit that his path to political activism was anything but traditional..... Pendas earned his GED after being kicked out of two high schools and going to reform school.
He didn’t have any specific views about politics...[but] After securing admission to Florida State University through an Upward Bound program, Pendas quickly became involved... When looking for leaders, Pendas says, he doesn’t _just_ turn to the elected heads of organizations, but looks for non-traditional leaders like those setting trends in fashion or who know how to throw parties. “Some of the best leaders I found were club promoters,” he said. “They knew how to pull people and resources together.”

March draws supporters statewide
By Kendrah Mincey Copy Editor Published: Saturday, April 7, 2012 Updated: Saturday, April 7, 2012 10:04 Tamisha Hawkins
Friday, Florida A&M and Florida State students, along with those from other Florida schools, left for March for the Dream for Trayvon Martin.
The group, named the Dream Defenders, began the three-day march at Stocking Park in Daytona, Fla., at noon to Sanford, Fla., to preach for equality, an end to corrupt and unjust law enforcement and Trayvon Martin, according to the events press release.
The Dream Defenders consists of thousands of students from FAMU, FSU, Tallahassee Community College, the University of Florida, the University of Central Florida, Florida Memorial University, Bethune-Cookman University and Miami-Dade College.
The group started as a conference call organized by FAMU, FSU and TCC students and alumni, and nurtured the idea of young people working together to defend Martin Luther King Jr.s dream of racial equality.
This is our time to make history, said Antonio Hairston, a senior public relations student and a spokesperson for the Dream Defenders. We are marching not only for Trayvon Martin, but for unity within the races.
FAMU students met at Bragg Memorial Stadium Friday to board buses, completely sponsored by donations, to Sanford.
According to www.thedreamdefenders.com, the group was founded on the idea that students and young people must come together, casting aside petty differences and organizational affiliations, to build a true movement of the people. They consider themselves not an organization, but an idea that cannot be quelled or silenced.
The weekends activities include a prayer vigil, speak outs and action planning meetings, with participants marching several miles each day.
“Hopefully this march can make some kind of a difference,” said Kenneth Richardson, a fourth-year physical therapy student from Birmingham. “It’s great to see us as Americans stand together, despite race, to fight for justice.”
Seventeen-year-old Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, 28, Feb. 26, and he has yet to be arrested after claiming self-defense.
Although there have not been any arrests in the case, Martin supporters believe that the lack of action is unacceptable.
“[Zimmerman] needs to be in jail,” said Lafayette Adams, a senior advertising student at the University of Florida. “Regardless of the story, he needs to be held responsible.”
Supporters can make donations to the Dream Defenders and find more information about the march and the weekends itinerary at www.thedreamdefenders.com.

This should add more fuel to the already hot-under-the-collar marchers.
