Sign targeted 17-year-old Trayvon Martin

DETROIT, Mich. (WOOD) - A road sign in Detroit displayed a racial slur early Monday morning.

According to WDIV , the sign referenced Florida teen, Trayvon Martin, who was killed in February by neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman.

Michigan State Police said the sign, along I-94 and Addison, was hacked around 1 a.m.

It has been taken down.

Just another college prank or does somebody out there need a good ass-kicking?

Obama getting his race war-it’s gonna get worse as many blacks will believe the racist BS from the Left and some whites will overreact to the obviously racist double standards promulgated by the Democrats and the MSM..

Soon Manson's Helter Skelter (only this time the race war is initiated by blacks) will arrive; just in time for election day.

All is going as planned in the Obama campaign.

“All is going as planned in the Obama campaign.”

It’s the ultimate race card but now it’s the whole damned deck they’re playing with. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the freeway sign-hacker(s) were indeed opportunistic race-baiting blacks.

Manson’s Helter Skelter had Billy the Bomber Ayers and Psycho Bernadine Dohrn as supporters. Just a couple in Obama’s Chicago neighborhood.

IMHO I believe there is a 95% chance you are correct. The first thing that came into mind was some blacks did it.

Racial epithets on college room doors, vandalizing autos, etc... History has taught us the blacks will think of these things before actual white people and try to further their agenda by committing these types of acts and then screaming "RACISM!"

Obama is turning all of America into a penitentiary of sorts—where upon entering you HAVE to join the gang that represents your race or be abused to death by the others.

You don't want to be a racist but you want to live.

Road sign hacked in a city where the majority of people are black, and most of the public jobs are occupied by blacks, in a part of the state that is almost all left-wing?

Wild guess, but I’m leaning to the direction of stunt by someone the press will not want the public to know about.

Or some Democrat activist, not necessarily black. You know, the people who have the familiarity and access to these signs are the union road crews...

Love it. These systems are behind security, as any system. That system is improved, hacked, improved, hacked, improved, ad infinitum.

Just outside of Chicago - I would say there is equal chance that the “Hacking” came from inside, and the “Hacking” was merely someone turning their head for a few minutes.

The sign was 'hacked' leading me to believe they are referring to one of many electronic billboards that are posted along this stretch of road. I've driven by them many times and they usually carry messages about traffic, time to airport, warnings against drinking and driving...nanny signs lol

The sign said “Trayvon a Ni@@er” but with the “g”s. Control box open and the keyboard was missing. Someone knew how to operate it.

Two other syllables cause grown people’s spines to turn to jelly -

“RAY SIST!”

In order to avoid these two syllables, grown men and women everywhere will avoid telling truths that lead to these syllables being shouted in “refutation” of the truths being told.

If Obama is planning on increasing racial tensions as you mention then he is going to lose the elections big time. The vast majority of Non-blacks had it with the race card being so used and abused…

I was in college in 1968. Everything about that year sucked. Well, better Nixon than Humphrey.

So I too decided to rebel. I joined ROTC and then went to Vietnam.

There’s a digital billboard next to our local mosque. I’ve always wanted to hack it with my tagline shown below.

So this is a major offense....a road sign hacked in the middle of the night, on a freeway in the middle of Detoliet. Yet a reporter on CNN uttered the F-bomb followed by the “n-word”...on the air...live..in context about the Tulsa murder suspects. Wonder if that will be reported anywhere?

I am confused by that premise. How will “blacks starting the race war” turn into white sympathy and gen up votes for nobama?

Such race war will likely result in those who had some guilt inspired sympathy would be the first inline for attack by the blacks, simply due to opportunity.

Most likely any such race war would definatley not be symetrical, maybe their rout will rekindle blind liberal kinship?

Then he is actually pretty stupid, as touching off a race war will just send white voters fleeing into the arms of the GOP as in the days of Richard Nixon.

Oh NO! Not the N word! Theses folks can’t handle the N word! It drives them insane and gives them an excuse to behave badly. How can they be expected to maintain their composure after the N word has been used? This is the equivalent of burning a moozlim’s holy book. Now they are gonna loose control and burn down their own neighborhoods.

And I’m all out of popcorn!

It’s militant fringe groups in general, not just black militants. The idea is as society degenerates, people begin to call for a strong government (think fascistic) to control the chaos.

I agree. This is all by design. The OWS movement fizzled because the protestors started to be seen as selfish thugs. The second they started demanding free stuff like free college they sealed their fate with the public. Now they are just seen as agitators. Where I live the mayor actually started referring to the OWS protesters camping in the parks as the 1% while the 99% couldn’t use the park. Brilliant.

As for the current issue with Zimmerman. The left can always could on their minions to bite on the race card every time it’s played. The agitators took a pretty straight forward incident and clouded it with altered images, edited video, and the typical race baiting narrative. The loyal minions then threaten violent responses, boycotts, etc... The attacks on random whites started with “Trayvon” as the motive but the media ignores their violence. The out come the fringe of the other side doing the same except now the media is concerned.

It was all orchestrated to cause despair in the nation. Communists and socialists need despair and before they can act. They have done a good job at this in the past few years. They invented a health care crisis, a climate crisis, a housing crisis, an economic crisis, a foreign policy crisis and that’s the ones we know about.

What worked in Europe is not likely to work as well in dramatically different America, well at least not is the parts of America that are not liberal or freeloadered.

I and many other patriots fear an olive drab Bradley showing up in our driveway no more than a gangsta ride wid Daba-duce spinnas. Either can and will be handled.

Don’t forget that “most” of our Military are real America loving patriots and are not likley to fire on similar America loving patriots and with us will turn on those that wish tyranny and Facsism on America. Count on it!

Someone with bad English skills too. It should read “is a” not just “a”.

Not that I am for name calling but at least use proper English and not make yourself look like a total idiot.

>>“Trayvon a Ni@@er”<<

We watch a lot of judge shows. There has been a major slip in English in some parts of the country. Black, white, or some combination of the above all say “Out da house” or “She da bomb” or “graduate high school” or “dey got out da car and had to go to hospital”.

It’s as if “the”, “of” and “is” are missing from the English language. And I’m not talking about blacks exclusively. I hear the kids in my neighborhood speaking the same way.

Glad I homeschool.
