Who Really Killed Trayvon Martin?

As I posted in an earlier blog, Roland Martin put on a ridiculous hoodie and declared war on whites, bemoaning the plight of young black men, universal white ignorance and racism.  Afterwards he took off the hoodie, donned an ascot (which can be bought at his online store), and had a dinner party for a few of his closest and most well to do black friends, hoodies back down, but I digress...
Hoodies Up is Roland Martin's PSA for the Trayvon Martin narrative: Perspective: This Is A War On Racism, Bigotry & Stereotypes ... This Is For Trayvon in which he says, and I quote:

  "This, folks, is war. This is war on racism. This is war on bigotry. This is war on stereotypes. This is a call to arms. This is time for the soldiers in the battle for social justice to stand up and say, "I report for duty, sir.... This is for Trayvon and the many other nameless, faceless Trayvons out there."

 Is he speaking to black America? Jews? Hispanic? Japanese?  Hardly, and that is the point of this blog.  Roland proclaims to see white stereotyping and bigotry as the killer of America's black youth, really?  Roland is not a dumb man, quite the contrary, so he can't possibly be so blind -- black men are killing black men, women, and children in droves.  So why the video?  After being suspended from CNN for hate speech toward gays, Trayvon's death swiftly put Roland back on the air and banking more than ever .  Roland Martin's suspension with CNN was lifted on 3/14 - his interview with Benjamin Crump, Sybrina Fulton, and Tracy Martin aired 2 days later.

 "We're sick of tired of being seen as a stereotype and not as full human beings. We're sick and tired of having to give our Black boys "The Talk" and still having to bury them so young." 

 One has to wonder what "the talk" is about?  White men shooting down black boys in the street?  Hopefully not because that "talk" would be negligent on a parent's part given the senseless deaths of blacks by blacks in this Country.  I'd love for Mr. Martin to answer this question but he will not and simply ignores or blocks anyone who asks. 

Ladies and gentlemen, we are sick and tired of being sick and tired," said Martin. "For those of you who continue to tout this so-called "post-racial America," look at this photo. 

This is Trayvon Martin. You tell him in the age of Obama that is a post-racial America. You tell his parents, Tracy and Sybrina, that their son was judged by the content of his character and not the color of his skin."

 Ummm, no, Trayvon Martin was judged as suspicious for casing houses while stoned -not for walking black.  He was killed for stalking and viciously attacking a man he likely thought was white, as did you and the race-baiters.


Or, maybe he was judged by his character?  Tired of seeing this picture?  That's too bad because Trayvon wanted the world to view him this way, that's why he posed, clicked and posted.  Sybrina didn't know he had a twitter account, not surprising since Sybrina didn't actually raise him.  Tracy and Alicia Martin, his current wife, raised him.  Tracy handed this young man $100 to go to the movies with his pot smoking cousin while on a 10 day suspension for being caught with pot and a pipe in his back-pack. Tracy then sent him to the house of Brandy Green who lives with a drug dealer while he shacked up in a hotel with his "fiancee" - problem is, Tracy hadn't bothered to divorce his current wife.  Why didn't Trayvon stay with Alicia?  Sybrina? Was Trayvon just too out of control for any of them?  We know he wasn't the angel everyone declares him to have been - it's obvious once one pulls their head out of their ass and gets to know him, the way his friends at Carol City knew him.  Trayvon Martin was a teenager who was out of control and knew no consequences for his actions.  He figured he would pop this dude looking at him and go home and smoke a blunt.  No matter what he did (suspended 3 times in 6 months), he got a pass, obviously.  He had started drinking "drank" - a mixture of fruit juice, codeine, and candy - fast track to nowhere and the world wants to blame George Zimmerman, the evil white man - the poster boy for who is killing all the black youth who are unarmed and walking while black.  Unbelievable, truly off the charts ridiculous.

  Roland continues: "America, no more. We will no longer accommodate your easily bruised feelings by clenching our teeth and praying it will all get better. No more. What do we want? Justice. When do we want it?  Now. "

The fairy tale narrative helps no one.  If I were a complete and utter imbecile or someone who sat around blowing a crack pipe all day,  I might buy it.  I agree, you should pray and then go to East St. Louis, Miami Gardens, Liberty City, Watts, the 5th ward in Houston, Dowling street - arrest the thousands of black gang members KILLING YOUR BLACK YOUTH and innocent baby girls sitting on their front steps. You are a fucking hypocrite.  Sorry, but for shit's sake, enough is enough.

  "If you think for a moment that we will be satisfied with a police chief stepping down or press releases expressing outrage, you have another thing coming," says Martin." Who is "we" Roland?  You, Crump, Jackson, Blow, and Sharpton? "This, folks, is war. This is war on racism. This is war on bigotry. This is war on stereotypes. This is a call to arms. This is time for the soldiers in the battle for social justice to stand up and say, "I report for duty, sir.... This is for Trayvon and the many other nameless, faceless Trayvons out there."

 Shame on you Roland Martin - these children have faces and by God they have names.  Look at them and pray for your soul that you've never once mentioned any of them, much less written a speech declaring war on their murderers.

 Even more offensive to the parents of loved ones killed due to inner city violence should be Ben Jealous and Charles Blow whose voices could be used for the greater good and not to fill their bank accounts on the death of one.

 "Ben Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, describes his concerns about the Sanford Police Department in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting and calls for the resignation of Sanford, Fla., Police Chief Bill Lee.

“In Sanford, if you kill a dog you end up in jail the next day. Trayvon Martin was killed, this beautiful boy was killed, and his killer has been allowed to walk the streets for weeks,” Jealous says"
Charles Blow is a writer for the New York Times and has been very vocal on the Trayvon Martin case.  In his New York times op-ed he wrote:

  "As the father of two black teenage boys, this case hits close to home. This is the fear that seizes me whenever my boys are out in the world: that a man with a gun and an itchy finger will find them “suspicious.” That passions may run hot and blood run cold. That it might all end with a hole in their chest and hole in my heart. That the law might prove insufficient to salve my loss. That is the burden of black boys in America and the people that love them: running the risk of being descended upon in the dark and caught in the cross-hairs of someone who crosses the line."

 Mr. Blow is worried about one man with a gun when there are literally thousands of young men with guns who are bored and angry - raised with zero moral compass, they need no real reason to gun Mr. Blows UNARMED boys down in cold blood - they could just get caught in the gang crossfire or a drive by.

White cops aren't terrorizing neighborhoods where 1 in 24 people will be victims of crime, white people aren't driving through your black neighborhoods shooting innocent six year old children, sitting on their own front stoop.  Your sons and Obama's sons are killing each other. The gang behavior is glamorized in hip hop and rap.  You can't throw a rock in a room full of hip-hop or rap artists without hitting a criminal.  I wonder why parents allow their kids to listen.  Would they let their son hang with this guy?

I would hope not, so why allow him to be influenced by these types and their violent music at all? Thousands more black boys and girls will die while Roland throws himself dinner parties and Crump, Parks, and Jackson reward themselves with a trip to Las Vegas with the grieving family of Trayvon Martin, handing out awards and patting each other on the back for a job well done.  For whom? YOU Roland Martin, Charles Blow, Benjamin Jealous, and your ilk is what is wrong with black America - you are destroying your own race by keeping them ignorant as to what is really killing their children, and you're laughing all the way to the bank.  Don't even get me started on your political ass kissing for profit.

Prior to Trayvon Martin's death Roland was best known as The Guy on CNN Wearing an Ascot (a tacky ascot).
