Trayvon Martin’s Stepmother Speaks Out: ‘They Ignore Me…But I Raised Him’ [VIDEO]
News One For Black America ^ | June 30, 2013 | Kirsten West Savali

In an emotional interview with Anderson Cooper, Trayvon Martin‘s stepmother, Alicia Stanley, opened up about her inconsolable grief at the loss of a boy she helped to raise for 14 years, Zimmerman’s guilt, Trayvon’s character and being ignored by Trayvon’s father, Tracy Martin.

Her voice shaking with pain and tears in her eyes, Stanley explained that she had helped raise Trayvon since he was 3-years-old, and that he was at her home with his father and her daughters “90 percent” of the time.

“Trayvon was a kind person, a loving person,” Stanley told Cooper. “He loved children, babies. You know before this happened, I really believed he would have been working with children; he adored children. He’s not what the media make him out to be…this thug.”

Stanley said that when the media started coming around, Tracy Martin stopped communicating with her and she didn’t understand why.

“He would just he was busy.”

Rachel Jeantel, 19, the last person to speak to Trayvon before Zimmerman killed him, testified that he referred to Zimmerman as a ‘creepy-ass cracker,” but Stanley is skeptical.

“We didn’t teach that kind of language in our home.”(continued)

The way I look at it the family and Crump are doing damage control after the Creepy A@@ Cracker comment. They don’t want the cracker jurors to take offense and let Zimmerman walk so they are trying to back pedal and take the racism out of it after they put it in from the start. It is too late for them to do that.

Did you read what this step mom was saying after the incident?

She claims her and the dad only separated 2 weeks before the incident. That the dad was a good dad and only trying to get justice for ‘their’ son.

I think she is full of it. At first I had some empathy, due to the years she was a parent to skittles, but after reading these earlier words, the woman has an agenda.

What a sick and sad bunch of people.

Yes, I understand why you would say that, but what would someone have to do to be a “creepy ass cracker” to Trayvon or his girlfriend? I suspect the qualification for being a creepy ass cracker is being white, or in Zimmerman’s case, being something other than black. I personally don’t think George was acting creepy, nor do I think he should be called a cracker. I do think now that creepy ass cracker has been introduced through this farce of justice, we should keep it front and center for social commentary.

No, that would be the HOA insurance company. Probably cheaper than defending the suit, opening the door to more $hakedown from the Sharpton/Jackson industry, and avoiding a boycott/bad publicity. Take your lumps and move on. Pass the loss on to your customers. I’m sure the HOA’s rates went up.

St Skittles, the thug, was protecting his turf at RATL. Since it was dark, and raining, he thought GZ was just another thug following him on his home turf. GZ was as just as a shadowy figure to him as he was to GZ.

No he thought GZ was a creepy ass-cracker. If St. Trayvon had lived long enough to become an imprisoned thug, he'd likely have become an ass-cracker himself.

Yet tattooed on his wrist is “Sybrina”, the name of the mother he loved who rejected him and threw him out of her house but has trademarked his name to make money off of him after death.

There is a term, “A face only a mother could love” It is a fact of nature that a mother is naturally is biased to the extreme towards their child. So she is off limits to me. She is not the problem.

But what about the news media? Here is a 5 minutes video that proves with pictures and police report that almost everything the Pretend Media said about the case was a lie. Including that Zimmerman did not have a broken nose (he did) because he was not touching his nose afterward, when he was handcuffed from behind!

Here it is on PopModal http://www.popmodal.com/video/16927/Zimmerman-Trial-Indicates-KKK-Style-Racist-Injustice-in-Courts-is-Still-with-Us-Media-is-Culprit-HDNewest-Version

YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y580YAz2B7c

And on LiveLeak: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=e0d_1372706724

Its the same video. If we can get this going viral it may end the lynch mob. Very shocking video in it.

EVERY serial killer was characterized as something sweet and nice. Why is it that parents are always the last to know their little thug is one?

That all seems probable. I had been trying to figure out all the various relationships.

Tracy Martin is quite the ladies’ man, eh?

No wonder kids these days get so screwed up. With all the “relationships” of the adults, the kids slip through the cracks.
