Posted on 09/04/2017 8:40:02 AM PDT by BogusTimes
On February 6, 2012, a teenager walking home with a pack of skittles through a quiet, middle-class Florida neighborhood was shot dead. The riots and outrage that followed brought the issue of race to the forefront and, from the Rose Garden, the President spoke to an embattled nation. You know, he said, if I had a son, hed look like Trayvon.
The shooting death of Trayvon Martin and the acquittal of the neighborhood watch shooter that followed in July of 2013 came under public scrutiny. Black America was up in arms over what they perceived as a national atrocity. Had it been a white, Latino or Asian kid, it would have been business as usual. But Trayvon was different; he was one of their own and they saw nothing beyond his dark brown skin. It didnt matter that it was within his control to end the altercation peacefully. It didnt matter that race was not a factor in the jurors decision. It didnt matter that it was a Latino, not a white man, who ended Trayvons life. Nor did it matter that stores were being vandalized and rioters were closing down freeways.
All that mattered was a black youth was dead and come hell or high water the piper had to be paid.

The last part of the 2nd paragraph could have been written about O.J. Simpson and his trial or Rodney King, or...
Whether they did it or not, didn’t matter.
And it apparently doesn’t matter that Martin was on top of Zimmerman pounding his head into the sidewalk.
Blackness? A college art professor once told me that there is no pure black in nature. So, there are no black people. We are all one shade or another of brown...except for albinos, who are pink.
The essential ingredients were a dishonest and ambitious state prosecutor, a corrupt and duplicitous federal administration, and the usual race agitators.
To his credit, Mr. Zimmerman probably saved his own bacon by going against the typical advice, and being as helpful as possible to the local police, even taking them on a walk-through of the events. This was critically important to him later, because he had convinced the local police of his innocence.
What happened was that when the state and federal police descended with orders to persecute Zimmerman, their first stop was to coordinate with the local police, who were very clear to them about Zimmerman being innocent.
After this, the odds of Zimmerman being railroaded dropped to almost nothing, long before the trial. Despite the high level state and federal forces arrayed against him.
Even after the state trial, the federal agents working at the behest of the Justice Department realized that not only wasn’t it going to happen, but that it shouldn’t.
F*ck that thug. Im glad hes dead.
This is why the N word was banned: so we wouldnt have it at times like this when it would be so appropriate.
I think you are better than this. There are ways of expressing your anger without throwing a whole race of people under the bus.
Young black men who attack armed men and make them believe they want to kill them get shot.
Thank you for correcting the article.
They'll get their minds right when the shooting starts.
“Among its reports, Trayvon Martins drug use, explaining how the Skittles and Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail drink he carried that night are ingredients that, when mixed with dextromethorphan (DXM) cough syrup, create Lean, a concocted high which can cause psychosis and aggression over the longer term. According to the autopsy report, Martins liver showed damage consistent with DXM abuse.”
You sure about that? He actually stalked Saint Trayvon? For how long? How, exactly, did Zimmerman force a (bloody and violent) confrontation?
Trayvon is now a verb. It means to stop a thug in self defense with a gun. Use it when possible. Get the word out.
Zimmerman was in the process of walking back to his car, St.Trayvon jumped him, hit him in the nose knocking him to the ground and than mounting him. WTF in Hell are you talking about? LOL DU is over there.
That was used as a great scene in “Shaft”...
John Shaft: Warms my black heart to see you so concerned about us minority folks.
Vic Androzzi: Oh come on Shaft, what is it with this black shit, huh?
[Vic holds a black pen up to Shaft’s face]
Vic Androzzi: You ain’t so black.
John Shaft: [Holds a white coffee cup next to Vic’s face] And you ain’t so white either baby.
BLM is the propaganda arm of the militant black separatist movement.
They already have 37 chapters in the US and Canada and it is their primary mission to remove or render powerless the police.
This is why people must arm themselves and understand criminal law. When the police removed or rendered powerless by terrorist groups like BLM/Antifa (Antifa is just the cannonfodder proxies of BLM) then the average citizen is going to have to be law enforcement.
BLM and Antifa ‘ARE’ the Left.....best not to give the left any space between them.
