March 2013 – Encouragement To Trayvon Martin’s Family and Friends

The following video by GraceThePoet was posted on YouTube, March 24, 2012.    Since that time, the accused murderer and killer of Trayvon Benjamin Martin has been arrested.  The trial of George M. Zimmerman for 2nd degree murder is scheduled to begin June 10, 2013.  

We reach out to the family and friends of Trayvon Martin, lifting you up in faith, hope, and love.

Thank you, GraceThePoet, for your Dedication to Trayvon Martin – Made It Home.

    • @mindyme. I thought really long and hard about the poem because it uses the “n” word. However, since there is reason to believe that Zimmerman and his minions lurk here, they need to hear that word spoken by a Black man so they can understand that GZ’s profiling and referring to Trayvon in the plural is perceived as bigotry.

      To say it another way, maybe “assholes” and “fucking punks” are not racial slurs, but GZ used the plural which means he placed Trayvon, an individual, in a category with others. It’s the category of who GZ thinks are assholes and punks that reveals his prejudice.

      • I had not seen it from that perspective, Xena… Well, I’ll be damned…Use of the plural indicates GZ wasn’t talking about the single boy in his sights, but a group of boys. And what was it that Trayvon had in common with that mysterious group…other than his skin.

        It is so tantalizingly simple…simple as in elegant as per Physicists….what you’ve hit upon. It was right there the whole time in front of our eyes…Is this the one “smoking gun” that Prosecutors will use to prove George profiled Trayvon?! Ha!

        And there’s that “Hollister” shirt picture that so confounds the “duhfense”. EVERY mother has a favourite picture of each of her children.

        And NO mother ever thinks she’ll need to provide a picture to depict her dead child to the world. I bet Sybrina picked out the pictures she loved best. But, George Zimmerman, her child’s killer is not happy with the pictures she chose.

        Maybe if she had anticipated George’s need for defense, she might have had her child pose for professional pictures, with good lighting, showing him looking as old as possible…just to help George.

          Well, I’ll be damned…Use of the plural indicates GZ wasn’t talking about the single boy in his sights, but a group of boys. And what was it that Trayvon had in common with that mysterious group…other than his skin.

          Indeed! GZ saw Trayvon as a group and not an individual until it was time for GZ to see himself as an individual when asked for his home address. Then he referred to Trayvon as “this kid.”

          The entire hoopla by Zidiots over Trayvon’s photos is nothing more than double-standard propaganda. In the Dooley case, a photo of victim David James was shown holding his daughter when she was an infant, yet she was 8 years old when James was killed. The media continued repeating that James was with his daughter when Dooley killed him. I’ve not read one comment by a Zidiot that the media or James’ wife was wrong on that matter.

      • Hi Yahtzee. Actually, I owe a hat tip to Auntie who has a Youtube channel and recommended GraceThePoet. Since we hadn’t posted any encouragement for the month of March, I jumped on her recommendation and watched/listened.

  6. Xena,
    When I hear GZ use the terms “a-holes” and “punks”. I get a gut feeling that he’s only cleaning it up for the dispatcher. You know.. “in case” something happened, he didn’t want to totally bury his butt.

    • Oh yes! Sondra Osterman said that GZ never used profanity in front of women. Well, he certainly used profanity on his NEN call. The nation hears him. He cannot retract it.
