How do y'all feel about this Trayvon Martin story.

March 24, 2012 @ 22:21:04
This is what Geraldo said:

“ am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters particularly to not let their children go out wearing hoodies. I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was. When you see a black or Latino youngster, particularly on the street, you walk to the other side of the street. You try to avoid that confrontation. Trayvon Martin, you know God bless him, he was an innocent kid, a wonderful kid, a box of Skittles in his hands. He didn’t deserve to die. But I’ll bet you money, if he didn’t have that hoodie on, that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn’t have responded in that violent and aggressive way."

That's ridiculous. His statement implies that any black or hispanic kid wearing a hoodie is inherently up to no good. Trayvon was walking through a gated community around 7pm wearing a hoodie because it was raining outside. To say that his clothing is just as much responsible for his death as the person who shot and killed him is absurd. A lot of members that post here in the WDYWT thread don't dress any different than Trayvon.

It's clear from everything that has come out about Zimmerman that the hoodie had nothing to do with it, Trayvon's skin color did. The guy is a nut, he takes his role as neighborhood watch way too seriously, and he has an irrational fear of "outsiders" being in and around his neighborhood. The guy called the police nearly once a week for the past year to report things he considered suspicious and went door-to-door asking people to be on the lookout and emphasized that they look out for young black males. He referred to Trayvon as a "coon" on the phone with the 911 dispatcher and said "these assholes always get away."


Of course his skin color had something to do with it. Geraldo clearly stipulated he was addressing the parents of niggas and brown niggas. Geraldo isn't excusing Zimmerman, he's explaining the rationale of Zimmerman. It was just something out of a scene in "Crash." A racist, paranoid half-white dude, and a cocky, black kid. Gerlado doesn't literally mean any sweatshirt with a hood on it, he really means the stereotypical outfit that a "thug" circa-2005 would wear. Baggy Ecko hoodie and southpole jeans. Now i'm sure Trayvon kept it fresher than that, but Geraldo made an excellent point. This incident is an example of two cultures literally clashing and their unfamiliarity and inability to communicate with each other resulted in one of them killing the other. I'm not saying Trayvon literally tried to fight him, but I'm saying in the battle of prejudice and misunderstanding, Zimmerman won out. Trayvon certainly could've defused the situation by doing his best Carlton Banks impression and gotten his inner white boy on and maybe calmed him down. I'm sure he sort of got pissed off and didn't set Zimmerman at ease so Zimmerman, thinking he was one of these thugs his mind made Trayvon out to be, shot and killed the nigga.

Also: Yall sheltered niggas gotta stop fronting. If yall ever gone to any public school, you know there's just some niggas that aren't necessarily bad kids, but they just dumb ass ignorant kids. Trayvon unfortunately seemed like one of those kids who was kind of a prick but only because of immaturity, not because he was a genuinely bad person. I have a cousin just like him. He's a good kid, but he ain't the most innocent kid either. Those pictures of him, although completely out of context, certainly give some insight into Trayvon's character.

I wanted to say something about Plies or most rappers in general being so opinionated about this...

Where were the songs and rallies and trending topics for the millions of other kids gunned down, even by other blacks themselves?

Niggas is activists when it's convenient.

All im saying is if it was a black guy that shot a white kid in a hoody he'd have the death sentence no questions asked

I don't know about death sentence, but he'd def do jail time, and we probably wouldn't even know about it due to lack of amount of things the media can exploit.

I think too many people are prematurely crucifying somebody with manipulated and inconclusive media and internet sources. None of us were there, none of us saw it, none of us truly knew what happened. The forensic scientists and police who have years of experience and education in such matters are working on the case as we speak. They have much much more evidence and leads than we'll ever get and much much more knowledge of what to do with it. Innoncent until proven guilty in a court of law. Stop trying to play e-detective because trust me, you're not as smart as you think. Quit letting emotions cloud your logic and judgement.

Have you investigated the crime scene, done forensics work, and corroborated it with witness testimonies? No. So quit being an internet detective making assertions of who is right or wrong with your stupid media influenced propaganda. Let the REAL detectives do their shit and when the court day comes it'll all be put to rest.

You're daughter takes a picture with her and her friend bending over but otherwise is a model child, is she a whore? No, she wouldn't be. Again everyone has their own perceptions and biases they place on a situation. Reminds me of this paradox. "A black man running down the street with a bag in hand, what is he doing?" Most people who face this question assumed he was stealing though the correct answer was trying to catch the bus. This is what the media/perception/your biases do. They help you form an opinion before you get all the facts. This is the mark of not thinking critically.

^^Absolutely nothing wrong with discussing it and the possibilities, povs, scenarios, etc but my point was people are prematurely crucifying this guy without much knowledge of the case or even evidence.

This reminds me of that stupid KONY shit.
March 25, 2012 @ 02:07:17
people are crucifying zimmerman because he legally murdered a kid, plain and simple. the entire situation could have been avoided if this gun toting wannabe cop stayed home. there are no laws prohibiting a person from pursuing a suspicious individual. zimmerman says trayvon attacked first and until someone or something proves otherwise zimmerman is a free man. you don't have to be a detective to piece something so simple together.

The problem with this is that the detectives or police aren't doing shit about it. Thats why theres such a huge problem. The dude wasn't arrested or isn't being put on trial.

DGAF if i get flame but this shit is the truth, people will keep covering this shit up because the black man has no place in america, shit even in these forums niggas get so much hate it's ridiculous. Not saying this kid was innocent but he was a fucking chicken chest kid whos' punches couldn't hurt no real grown ass man, and niggas agreeing with geraldo are just as lost as this spic who thinks white people like him(telling you stupid latinos and asians and east asians, white people hate you more then they hate us, get your muthafuckin mind right) i see white kids all day wearing hoodies and they are just as threatening as a bunch of niggas in a pack, no difference young kids these days don't have respect for shit.

Mexicans can't be racist?

And they bring up white/black because the police probably didn't do further investigation because they assumed the boy was just another nigger cooning it up so they didn't bother to do shit

I'd bet everything I own that the dude who decided not to investigate more was caucasian

^^^^^^
I wish that was true, but this is how the London Riots started

Cops kill unarmed black guy department does nothing

Niggas go crazy


Yes and no really, London riots were abit deeper than that

PLUS, the guy was an alleged dealer, not that that condones his death

Better start askin the white man what minorities should wear now-a-days.

Hoodie or Hijab your gonna get killed.

edit:
I've decided that from now on, if I see a white male with any sort of Southern Pride attire like the rebel flag and other dixie shit I'm gonna be extremely hostile towards them.

Just as they have the irrational fear of black males dressed a certain way I will do the same towards white males dressed a certain way.
