“I Am Trayvon Martin” Outrage or Craze??

136

March 24, 2012 by The ReadyWriter


In support of Trayvon Martin, the 17 year old who was gunned down on February 26, 2012 in the gated community where his father’s lived, the internet is all a craze with people wearing hoodies in light of the details made known by his killers pursuit.

LeBron James and the Miami Heat team showed their full support for Trayvon Martin by wearing grey hoodies in a group photo LeBron uploaded to Twitter.com yesterday with the hashtags: “#WeAreTrayvonMartin #Hoodies #Stereotyped #WeWantJustice”.

Meanwhile, Fox News host Geraldo Rivera fanned the flames of controversy when he advised black and Hispanic parents not to let their sons leave home wearing hoodies.

Rivera denied that he was “blaming the victim” and called it “common sense” for minorities to avoid wearing hoodies. He said that he was “reminding minority parents of the risk that comes with being a kid of color in America,” according to the Huffington Post.

Trayvon was unarmed and carrying a bag of Skittles and a can of ice tea when he was ambushed and gunned down by a racist neighborhood watch captain as he walked home from a corner store. Because Trayvon was black and wearing a hoodie, the neighborhood watch captain thought he was a suspicious criminal, “up to no good”.

But… one of my loyal readers think it’s a craze, and when the flames are fanned, the outrage will subside. Why? Because we don’t stay informed, check out what she said:

Ok let me try and be tactful here. This horrible act occured on 2/26/12. In 7 day’s it will be a month that this baby’s life was taken AWAY  and people are JUST NOW up in arms. Why? Because Facebook made you aware of this heanous act. (long sigh). The last time people were moved like this was the Troy Davis situaton every one was posting  I AM TROY DAVIS. Month’s later I SEE NOTHING   (another lo…ng sigh). PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FOR THE LAST TIME PLEASE (IM BEGGING (SOMETHING I HARDLY EVER DO)  STOP LETTING THE MEDIA MAKE YOU AWARE OF WHATS GOING ON IN OUR COMMUNITIES AROUND THE WORLD. IM FED UP ALREADY WITH THIS MEDEOCRICY  SERIOUSLY. GET INVOLVED IN YOUR COMMUNITIES. FIND OUT WHO YOUR  SENATE LEADERS ARE  , SIGN UP FOR INFORMATIVE NEWSLETTERS NOT JUST MEDIATAKEOUT (OH YES I DID). YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY THERE IS NO CHANGE? BECAUSE THEIR IS NO CONSISTENCY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND BECAUSE AFTER THE MEDIA STOPS REPORTING, AND PEOPLE STOP POSTING EVERYONE FORGETS!!!!!!! STAY INFORMED, BUT BETTER THAN JUST POSTING ON FACEBOOK CALL YOUR  SENATE LEADERS, I PUT MY HARRASING PHONE CALL’S THROUGH A WEEK AND AHALF AGO DID YOU?

Will you stay informed or make a difference? And how can tragic situations like this never happen again?

      Zion, the stand Your Ground law sounds kinda dumb to me.. Seems the threat would have tobe real or at least reasonable for this to apply.

      And self defense should only be valid if he’d tried to remove himself from the situation and his back was against the wall. To me, once the dispatcher told him to back off and he didn’t, he was stalking (or at the least lurking with intent) and that would negate both his arguments for justification…

      Ok, as much as I want this azzhole Zimmerman to face justice,.. you cannot meet ignorance with ignorance. It can not and will not solve anything. The fact that the “new black panther party” has a bounty on Zimmerman, is freaking insane. By killing him or beating him up you are just as bad as he is. If anyone kills him, I hope they are arrested as well. As much as I hate to say this, give the justice system a chance to work. I would rather see him spend the rest of his pathetic life in prison, then dead.

Probably not but the bigger issue is that as each person reposted articles or put on a hoody in support it brings attention to the issue that racism and profiling is still alive.

    It starts conversations with parents and their children. The halo affect is so much bigger than dismissing how and when people got involved. Everyone wasn’t at the forefront of civil rights movement either.

      And so the slander begins…I won’t bother to read this. If there’s a secret witness where is his or her 9-1-1 tape? Or does the article mention that? You saw your neighborhood d*ck tickler or watchtower or whatever he was being attacked…You called the cops and reported it right? I hate to admit this out loud,,,But I’m starting to feel a certain way about…Other folks…Havent felt like this in awhile,,,But it happens,,,Folks talk about the angry Black man syndrome,,,But they don’t note the people and situations that brings it out of us…

      What was the point of Zimmerman being a neighborhood watchman if it was that easy for him to get beat up by a 17 year old? A Gun, outweighed Martin, on the phone with 911. But in the end he’s screaming for help, no wonder he wasn’t a real policeman. This mess is ridiculous, anyone with two brain cells can see that Martin was not the type of kid they are trying to paint him to be.

      @ Marky:

      I agree with you. Although I see Geraldo’s point… I believe it’s pure ignorance. That’s like telling black people that we should Give ourselves a curfew and put ourselves on house arrest after a certain time. Prolly only drink from certain water fountains like back in the day… Why should we segregate ourselves because of the ignorance of others? Why do we have to cower and change to make the insecure feel a power of authority/security? People are missing the point. No matter how much people don’t like the baggy/saggin’ jeans and hoodie ensemble and what it represents… Not all people who dress like that are thuggin’. Most aren’t. I see just as many whites who dress like that where I grew up in the suburbs and now that I’m in NYC… I still see it. But their ok. If its cold. I should be able to wear a hoodie. If I stop wearing hoodies… Then I’ll wear a hat. That won’t work either because when I last checked some people look at fitteds and some wool caps as thug wear too. It’s all a progression to take away rights and it sucks. I don’t think Geraldo fully thought out his statement. I know he was trying to provide a solution because even his son is a dark Latino… But his solution sucked! He should do better especially being the world renown journalist he is…. Just my opinion. …I said all that to say that I agree with you…

    The whole thing could have been avoided if that white racist hadn’t followed the child as he was instructed by the 911 operator. Trayvon was followed because he was black. He was racially profiled because he was black. He was shot and killed because he was black. The white racist has a price to pay for what he did. This could have been anyone’s child. My heart goes out to his parents.

    This whole incident has been disturbing, disheartning, and disgusting. The 3D’s if u will. And what’s even more troubeling is zimcoward is still a free man. Now everyone knows if he was black, mexican or any other race besides white, he would not be so lucky. What gives a white person the right to say they are better then the next person because of their color? They, shyt out the same azz hole as every other human.IT HAS GOT TO STOP. I just watched a show where this nasty azz white woman was addicted to drinking her own pee. Oh but that’s “Pee therapy”… um no, that’s sick and mental. God is a just God and racist people will reap what they sow. That’s all.
