‘Raped’ Trayvon Martin had it coming – well, he was Walking While Black

by | 27th, March 2012

TRAYVON Martin, and his shooting dead by Robert Zimmerman, continues to ride at the top of the news cycle in the US.

We start the round-up with news that Fox News host  Geraldo Rivera  is sorry for saying that Trayvon Martin might have been asking for it because he went out wearing a hooded top . Says the rent-a-gob:

“I have obscured the main point that someone shot and killed an unarmed teenager.”

Obscuring the main point is what the media does. Of course, Geraldo is only a bit sorry, adding :

“I apologize to anyone offended by what one prominent black conservative called my ‘very practical and potentially life-saving campaign’ urging black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies.”

Hey, If saying things that make you looking like a twat saves live, Geraldo is guilty as charged, says Geraldo.

Trayvon Marin’s mother, Sybina Fulton is now on twitter. He rson was once on the social network, too. The Daily Caller has found his tweets on an account now closed. Trayvon tweeted under the name@No_Limit_Nigga.

Nigga. And Zimmerman is whitey. Yes, Zimmerman is hispanic. So, why did Zimmerman shoots Tryavon Martin dead? Well, the media have taken to calling Zimmerman a”white hispanic”.

LezGetReal has debated if anyone can be a “White Hispanic”.

The Root NPR International Business Times Yahoo! News The Madison Times Reuters , our own  ITV  have all aped the New York Times’  news that Zimmerman is above all things “white”, even if he is Hispanic:

“I do not ask y’all to forget, but I do ask y’all to forgive,” Mr. Dedmon said to the family of James C. Anderson, 47, who was killed last June, according to pool reporters in the courtroom…

The family has filed a wrongful death suit in the case against all seven teenagers who the police say were involved, including two girls.

Morris Dees, a founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, is working with the family and their lawyer, Winston J. Thompson III. He said the family would continue to push for a civil trial so that more about the case could be revealed.

“You continue to see this around the country, the systematic targeting of black people. That’s what happened here and that’s what happened in Florida,” he said, referring to the case in Sanford, Fla., in which an unarmed black teenager was shot and killed almost four weeks ago by a white Hispanic crime watch volunteer.

So. It was all about race, then?.

The Miami Herald notes:

Multiple suspensions paint complicated portrait of Trayvon Martin

As thousands of people gathered here to demand an arrest in the Trayvon Martin case, a more complicated portrait began to emerge of a teenager whose problems at school ranged from getting spotted defacing lockers to getting caught with a marijuana baggie and women’s jewelry…

In October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F” an acronym for “what the f—.” The officer said he
