Hundreds Hold Prayer Rally for Trayvon Martin in St. Louis… Then Chant “No Justice, No Peace!” (Video)

Last year in April an elderly St. Louis man,  Hoang Nguyen, was attacked by a mob of black youths playing “the knock out game.”  Hoang was walking home from the grocery store with his wife. They killed him.

A shrine for Hoang Nguyen was set up by his daughter, Lan Nguyen, in her apartment in South County after his murder. There was no public prayer service for Hoang in Tower Grove Park. (PD photo)

In June, a group of black youths beat a gay man bloody playing “the knock out game.”

In August, black teen mobs targeted St. Louis cyclists in “the knock out game”.

In September, a 73-year-old man was knocked unconscious just outside of Tower Grove Park.

One local teen claims to have knocked out over 300 people in the “game.”

St. Louis activists held a prayer vigil for Trayvon Martin this weekend in Tower Grove Park.

Then the group started chanting, “No justice, No peace!”
KSDK reported:

Mayor Francis Slay and County Executive Charlie Dooley attended a prayer vigil and rally Friday night for a teen killed in Florida.

The event took place at the Sons of Rest Shelter at Tower Grove Park and was put together to honor the life of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old shot and killed in Sanford, Florida by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman.

The event was a series of passionate speeches, poems and songs. Speakers made pleas for justice, asking that Zimmerman be arrested and sent to jail.

The crowd was a mix of young and old, people of all races. The rain didn’t seem to dampen their spirits or the message that things need to change, when it comes to race relations in America. That’s a message that hit home here in St. Louis.

“It reminds me of the Rodney King situation, where everybody took a stand– black or white,” said vigil attendee Kevin Borden.

“Things have to change,” said attendee Eddie Williams. “It’s 40 years past the civil rights movement and we’re still dealing with burying young black men. That has to stop.”

    Funny how they are never quite this upset when a black kid kills another black kid. Which happens a hell of a lot more often.

    Gee, groups of blacks gathering all across the country. Seems promising.

    Perhaps they were protesting the attitudes of the all-too-typical black student who refuses to do his/her part in studying and learning basic academic skills leading to, among numerous other negative indicia, abysmal SAT scores. BTW, the achievement gap is nothing more than an effort gap;

    Perhaps they were protesting the abandonment of black children by their biological fathers and the atrocious percentage of black out-of-wedlock births or the equally atrocious high percentage of black mothers who abort their unborn children after having been exploited with no conscience by Planned Parenthood;

    Perhaps they were protesting the utter depravity of government dependency (meaning on other Americans) for their daily bread, a rate disproportionately experienced by blacks;

    Perhaps they were protesting [name the negative socio-economic measure] adversely and disproportionately affecting blacks in America;

    Nope. None of these serious issues is even remotely in the minds of today’s black “protesters.”

    Today follows the time-worn script of blacks and their so-called leaders. The play, LET US WALLOW (once again) IN SELF-PITY.

    So the police deciding not arresting him means “no justice,” while the mob outside demanding punishment means “justice”.

    Got it.

    “Critical Race Theory” is based on a theory that all Blacks in America are inherently inferior due to the fact that they live in a country that is dominated by white people. The theory also believes because of this white dominance, it is OK for blacks to feel oppressed and and have anger towards their white countrymen. The theory also believes the only way to correct this perceived injustice is to change the laws and the courts in a way to “even” out the rules and laws to make our country “More Fair.” it is a theory based in Marxism. Our current president his attorney general and many people in academia adhere to this theory. Not to mention the radical left wing media. Today, the New York Times is calling Zimmerman a “White Hispanic.” it fits their narrative that “Whites” are oppressive and evil.

    Thanks New York Times. A little late and always wrong.

    “Knockout King”

    [Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman after Martin beat the hell out of Zimmerman in a gated community. Well-to-do lefties, who typically live in the most lily-white communities they can find, routinely condemn other whites who live in gated communities, just as they have for 40 years condemned whites who have fled murderous black racism for “white flight,” which is of course, “racist.” Not wanting to see one’s family or oneself robbed, raped, maimed or murdered is “racist.”]

    bg, maybe you should post a few more times. Nobody’s listening to you. Type louder.

    “No Justice”, “No peace”,

    Is that Social Justice they are talking about, or real Justice, Constitutional Justice?
    And if they decide there will be “No Peace”, then that is their decision and Obama is going to have to live with it. But this whole thing is a cooked up man made global warming senario anyway, so they had better let a sleeping dog lie. “cause that sucker might get up and bite the hell out of you!”

    The ads themselves are not, individually, the blog-owner’s choice.

    I don’t know if Jim can go to a list of possible ads served by any of his ad-servers, and block certain ones, but I doubt it.

    Whoever thought up this particular video-player sucks, too.

    I don’t want an embedded video to start playing unless I click PLAY.

    And I don’t EVER, EVER, EVER want to listen to a TV-news-person speaking.

    Fingernails on a chalkboard is infinitely preferable.

    I would rather hear the Muslim call to prayer at high volume, than a TV newsperson speaking.

    And as soon as I click “Post Comment”, this slunt is going to be invading my audio space with her carefully-crafted Marxist babble. I don’t want to hear her. I don’t want to hear her from the next room with the door closed. Even after I click “pause”, if I submit a comment, I get to hear her again.

    (And another thing that sucks is that nobody on the entire goddamned internet has ever come up with a STOP button for these videos. I can pause, while it eats bandwidth and continue to load SOMETHING I WILL NEVER WATCH — but I cannot stop the vid without getting a plugin which will let me completely block videos. What, was the “STOP” button eliminated by some cabal of folks for whom wasted bandwidth would be a beneficial thing? Probably.)
