    One more thing, what really got me was how they said Zimmerman cried all night. Well…I got news for Zimmerman, Trayvon’s mother, father, and love ones have cried daily because you too it upon yourself to assassinate a black male because he wore a hoodie. How a person looks does not justify killing them. That’s just like saying a rape victim had it coming because of what they had on.

    • Tell it, Granny! I don’t believe Zimmerman cried at all. He’s a fk bully who has a hatred for black men. His ass need to fry. He took the life an innocent child and despite the child’s cries for help, he shot him dead for being black. HATE CRIME!

    The Trayvon case has me hotter than fish grease. I’m tired of them killing our black males behind stereotypes and then claiming self-defense or they thought they had a gun B.S. This to me is more like a modern day lynching. They can’t lynch young black males like they used to, so they’ve come up with a new way to eliminate them. Enough is enough and this has got to stop! Zimmerman is lying and they are trying to cover up for him. Zimmerman’s story has changed more than once if you’ve noticed.

    I want to post about this on my blog, but Google has shut me down completely. It is something fishy going on. I planned on changing over to Disqus or WordPress. Anyway, I am going to find another forum. I never did really feel comfortable with Google anyway. Nevertheless, Southerngirl, I’m sending you an email.

  3. Somebody must be paying this ass clown Joe Oliver MEGA BUCKS to push this lie! He was on MSNBC …AGAIN! This lying POS! He got caught in another lie. He claimed on The Last Word he had taken time off from work…today it’s something different. SMACK!

    ARREST Zimmerman NOW!

  4. Protesters in Los Angeles wear shirts quoting President Obama during a Million Hoodie March to protest the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin. The Feb. 26 killing of the black teenager as he walked through a gated community by George Zimmerman, a white Hispanic, has triggered protests around the country and calls for Zimmerman’s arrest.

    Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) spoke on the House floor wearing a hooded sweatshirt — to protest the killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin — and the presiding Republican ordered him removed from the chamber, reminding members they are not allowed to wear hats.

    Parents Of Trayvon Martin To Attend Congressional Briefing Tuesday
    by Corey Dade

    The parents of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin will travel to Washington Tuesday to attend a Capitol Hill briefing on racial profiling and hate crimes, the family’s lawyer told NPR.

    The briefing on the federal government’s enforcement of laws against racial profiling and hate crimes will be held by Democratic Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee, John Conyers and Corrine Brown.

    The fatal shooting of the 17-year-old Martin, who was African-American, has ignited a national outcry over racial profiling amid demands for the arrest of the shooter, George Zimmerman.

    Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who has been identified as Hispanic, allegedly uttered a racial epithet while talking to a 911 dispatcher as he followed Martin through a gated community. The teenager was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, prompting Zimmerman to report seeing a “suspicious guy.”

    Zimmerman, 28, claims he shot the teen in self-defense. Martin was unarmed.

    The lawmakers, each of whom has condemned the shooting, are expected to criticize Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which is under review in the wake of the shooting. Lawmakers also are expected to examine certification requirements for neighborhood watch volunteers.

    In addition, they are expected to argue in favor of charging Zimmerman with a hate crime.

    The family’s lawyer, Benjamin Crump, is one of several people from the legal community and law enforcement scheduled to speak at the briefing, according to a release from Jackson Lee’s office.

    The boy’s father, Tracy Martin, and mother, Sybrina Fulton, aren’t expected to speak at the briefing, Jackson Lee’s office said.

    The National Association of Black Journalists reported Saturday that Jackson Lee would hold the briefing:

    “This is symbolic of all that we have gone through with cases like this throughout the United States of America … whether a child should be able to walk down the street unaccosted,” Jackson Lee said. “This seems to be an epidemic confronting black boys and men in America. We are seeking an arrest and those of us lawyers know that it can and will be done.”

    Jackson Lee, Conyers, Brown and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus have joined the calls for an arrest in the case.
