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

Mar 24, 2012 @ 20:55
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."

Well this is no worse than teen girls taking provocative pictures. It is the cool thing to do among their peers so they do it. I've taken a "gangster" picture at one point or another due to the same thing and posted on a social network but in no way would anyone say I fit that style of life. 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.

Second pic dont even look like him tho

I dont understand why people are arguing on whether or not Zimmerman is guilty or not. Thats for the courts to decide when he is arrested for murder which he has not been. If it was stand your ground legal, OK. PROVE IT IN COURT. But as long as this dude is free niggas gonna be pissed.

I mean isnt it a hate crime to Call some one a fucking Coon, then kill him?

FUCK DREWBACCA | smh fuck REVS to....

Yep she's a whore.

Mar 24, 2012 @ 21:25

If you weren't trolling you formed an opinion without thinking reason I left it open to interpretation and did the paradox after. You weren't thinking. Maybe she thought no one but her friend would have it and it would just be between them as most girls who sext think. She had no intention of being portrayed in that way.

lol god damn this is just offensive... he's not even doing anything in the pictures that's violent or threatening. Just stuff that white people associate with "gangsters" and are afraid of. "Stalking" a neighborhood. smh until this point I didn't even know anyone was on Zimerman's side. The kid looks like he weighs a buck thirty soaking wet with his shirt off, and they're trying to say Zimmerman felt his life was threatened?
Mar 24, 2012 @ 21:40
Yeah seriously, he's skin and bones. He's 6'3" 140 and Zimmerman is 5'9" 250. And for this to even happen, Zimmerman had to continue following Trayvon in his car (which the dispatcher told him not to do) and then get out of his car and confront Trayvon, which makes Zimmerman the aggressor in my opinion.

Mar 24, 2012 @ 21:41
Don't see what those pictures add to the situation. If Trayvon was walking down the street, pants sagging, screaming thug life, rolling a blunt, does it justify fucking approaching and shooting him once the cops already told you to leave it alone?

You can do that shit with pictures and tweets to anyone. Look at that Mexican girl who is missing, they post nice pictures of her and say how great her relationship is with her mother and all that, but if you go on her Twitter she's talking shit, talking about drugs & alcohol, posting pics of pills, etc.

Well unfortunately that's the first place people are going to go for information these days, so if you make yourself out to be a gangster, a drug user, etc. on those sites then someone is going to find it and assume that's you.

you see the examiner article?

cliffnotes are that,

the dude who called 911 saw trayvon over the dude punching him.

dudes face was bleeding with grassstains on his back

trayvon was a bigass football player and was on a 5 day suspension

lol, you believe that article is factual?

We're all in the same game, just different levels. Dealing with the same hell, just different devils

#PUSSASSCRACKS #AYYYYYYBREHHH


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.

^^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.
Mar 25, 2012 @ 02:07
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.
