Trayvon Martin’s Parents & Noted Race Hustlers to Hold Rally Today in LA

Don’t expect to see this photo on any of the protest signs today.

Last week ABC released this photo of George Zimmerman taken just minutes after the Trayvon Martin shooting.

Noted race hustlers Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton will hold a rally today with Trayvon Martin’s parents with several LA celebrities two months after the Florida youth’s shooting death.
CBS reported:

A rally expected to draw prominent civil rights leaders is scheduled to take place at a Los Angeles church Thursday to mark the two-month anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death.

The rally starting at 5:30 p.m. at the West Los Angeles Church in Christ at 3045 Crenshaw Boulevard will be attended by the Martin family, NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous, the Rev. Al Sharpton, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Bishop Charles Blake, who preaches at the church.

Several celebrities are expected, including Stevie Wonder, Chaka Kahn, David Banner, Paul Rodriguez, radio host Big Boy and Magic Johnson

The rally is being held in part to “advocate for crime victims …, educate young people on conflict resolution techniques (and) increase public awareness against all forms of profiling,” the NAACP said in a statement.

    Where is the rally, out cry for Mr Owens ? I am bemused as to how all these racial rallies always is one sided and you never , ever hear or see any rally in helping the white man that was beaten or killed by the other race. This is troubling that the white race has not one person of status that gets up and marches or condemns what is rampant in society today. We as citizens need to stop this and demand that anyone that airs these ppl should be boycotted , any and all products sold should not be bought. Until the baiters are stopped. Not this one sided, attack on one race in the cause to advance their objectives. This is all that they are fighting for, not for Trey, not for any other reason. It is to move their race above and beyond others without having to work for it, without having to be responsible to other races for what they do. They are mongers, baiters, and haters, these so called reverends. They are no closer to God then the devil is and we are witnessing his work in their doings. May good people rise up and stop this. And all races be treated the same based on laws and character.

    re Al Sharpton is a racist and a Jew basher

    ‘But such an evaluation makes perfect sense for someone who, like Sharpton, loathes white people and considers them the scourge of humanity.’

    Now who does that sound like? No wonder Sharpton has been to the WH numerous times.

    this whole episode will end very badly. Zimmerman will be aquitted in a mistrial. there will be a racial war very soon if its not happening now. I am very disappointed in Stevie Wonder in his participation in this radical racial hatred. I used to love his music, now not so much, I have lost all respect for these people.

    Former NAACP leader accuses Sharpton
    and Jackson of ‘exploiting’ Trayvon Martin

    [Former NAACP leader C.L. Bryant is accusing Jesse Jackson and
    Al Sharpton of “exploiting” the Trayvon Martin tragedy to “racially
    divide this country.”

    “His family should be outraged at the fact that they’re using this
    child as the bait to inflame racial passions,” Rev. C.L. Bryant said
    in a Monday interview with The Daily Caller.

    The conservative black pastor who was once the chapter president
    of the Garland, Texas NAACP called Jackson and Sharpton “race
    hustlers” and said they are “acting as though they are buzzards
    circling the carcass of this young boy.”


    But Bryant, who explores the topic of black-on-black crime in his
    new film “Runaway Slave,” said people like Jackson and Sharpton
    are being misleading to suggest there is an epidemic of “white
    men killing black young men.”

    “The epidemic is truly black on black crime,” Bryant said.
    “The greatest danger to the lives of young black men are
    young black men.”

    and he is not alone.. several other well
    noted Black men have stated the same..

    “…increase public awareness against all forms of profiling,”

    In other words: ‘No snitchin’

  • bg


    Jesse Jackson has lots of blood on his hands,
    not to mention this, and a few other things..


  • Profiling is good. Profiling points out who is not supposed to be where they are, who is the criminal, who is a threat, who might be planning on harming our society, etc. Profiling accomplishes several things that are important to maintaining a civil and orderly society, and most importantly a safe and secure society where people can go about their business without worry about something bad happening to them. Trayvon doesn’t fall into the catagory of someone who was minding his own business and not bothering anyone and wanted to be safe and secure in this society. Trayvon may have been taking a short cut, he may have been scoping the place out, but then he changed that to appoaching Zimmnerman to start some crap with him about following him around and scoping him out. It was at that point that Martin’s place in our society stopped being someone who had full rights to be doing what he was doing to being someone who is a threat to everyone around him, being a threat to Zimmerman. Martin could have broke off his attack at anytime, but he decided to keep beating Zimmerman.

    At what point did Martin’s attack stop being a simple assault, and then turned into a hate crime? That’s an important point because it will determine when Zimmerman stopped being a watch captain and became a victim of Martin’s attack. It’s at that point when the focus changes from whether or not Zimmerman was doing his job as watch captain, and to whether or not what he had been doing caused Martin to react like he did. But then again what right did Martin have to act on his feelings that Zimmerman was violating his right to walk through the gated complex, and act on something that no one has the right to do and that is attack someone unprovoked?

    What Sharpton and the rest are doing is holding a rally to celebrate the fact that a different set of rules they live by have been violated, and why is it such a big deal for them to have those rights that no one else has? They are celebrating the fact that Trayvon is dead because he was exercising his rights to attack anyone who he thinks has violated the special rights Blacks have been given by liberals, and they are going to make the man who killed Trayvon pay the max for violating Trayvon’s special rights.

    What these dumb Negro’s need to get through their thick skulls is Trayvon screwed up by attacking a guy who was doing his job and could have stopped beating Zimmerman long before it got as bad as it did, especially after it was witnessed that Martin said to Zimmerman “You’re dead now!” after he saw Zimmerman’s gun in Zimmerman’s belt. Had these people not gone along with the brain washing that they have gotten from liberals to think that they don’t have to obey America’s societal rules of behavior, and rejected what liberals were telling them that they have more rights to just be Blacks and do what Blacks do rather than do what some rules they didn’t make up said, we wouldn’t be having this rally today and these people wouldn’t exist in the capacity they are in now since Blacks did listen to what liberals were telling them and didn’t know those things were lies.

    re: #27 April 26, 2012 at 3:07 pm bg

    [and he is not alone.. several other well
    noted Black men have stated the same..]

    not to mention the stats bearing them out..

    [According to the Uniform Crime Report for 2009, among people
    18 or younger, blacks were charged with 58 percent of murder
    and non-negligent manslaughter, 67 percent of robberies, 42
    percent of aggravated assaults and 43 percent of auto thefts.
    As for murder, more than 90 percent of the time, their victims
    were black. These statistics, showing a strong interconnection
    among race, youth and crime, are a far better explanation for
    racial profiling and suspicion than simple racism.


    For most blacks to own up to the high crime rate among blacks
    is a source of considerable discomfort. Beyond that, it creates
    suspicions and resentment, which are destructive of good race
    relations, and it’s devastating to the black community, which is
    its primary victim.


  • owl

    Well, at least we learned that Zimmerman was black, so is it okay now? They never get excited about murder after murder of black on black.

    We also learned that if Obama had a son, he would have looked closer to Zimmerman than Martin.

    All this new info must come as quite a shock to MSM race baiting machine and Obama. Wonder if they can just pull the article.

  • Economan

    Someone should get a huge banner with the photo of Zimmerman’s bloody head and hang it in front of the rally.

  • Michael

    What did the well for cash, dry up in Florida, that they had to take the show on the road.

    Maybe they can hook-up with oBama and take Air Force One around the country as he campaigns.

  • I was extremely impressed by the comments originally issued by Mrs. Martin. They were generous and revealed a lady of great courage and Christian character.
    I am afraid her attorney and Al Charlatan are leading her in a totally different direction

    #22 Hit the nail on the head. This weekend is the anniversary of the Rodney King beating. Watch the national news tonight, this thing may get out of control and LA will burn. I pray it won’t, but the stage is set…

  • Robert

    This rally will only serve to perpetuate racism by blacks, black victimhood, and the sense of entitlement. Further, leading interests will use this time to effect personal gain, with none of the racial introspective necessary to explain the gash on Zimmerman’s head or the other crimes that have been committed by blacks against whites since the incident.

    Here you go. 🙂

    ‘A pit bull named Big Boi began menacing George and Shellie Zimmerman in the fall of 2009.

    The first time the dog ran free and cornered Shellie in their gated community in Sanford, Florida, George called the owner to complain. The second time, Big Boi frightened his mother-in-law’s dog. Zimmerman called Seminole County Animal Services and bought pepper spray. The third time he saw the dog on the loose, he called again. An officer came to the house, county records show.

    “Don’t use pepper spray,” he told the Zimmermans, according to a friend. “It’ll take two or three seconds to take effect, but a quarter second for the dog to jump you,” he said.

    “Get a gun.”

    That November, the Zimmermans completed firearms training at a local lodge and received concealed-weapons gun permits. In early December, another source close to them told Reuters, the couple bought a pair of guns. George picked a Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun, a popular, lightweight weapon.

    By June 2011, Zimmerman’s attention had shifted from a loose pit bull to a wave of robberies that rattled the community, called the Retreat at Twin Lakes. The homeowners association asked him to launch a neighborhood watch, and Zimmerman would begin to carry the Kel-Tec on his regular, dog-walking patrol – a violation of neighborhood watch guidelines but not a crime.’

    thank you..

    re: “White Hispanic”

    [Based on extensive interviews with relatives, friends, neighbors,
    schoolmates and co-workers of Zimmerman in two states, law
    enforcement officials, and reviews of court documents and police
    reports, the story sheds new light on the man at the center of
    one of the most controversial homicide cases in America.

    The 28- year- old insurance- fraud investigator comes from a deeply
    Catholic background and was taught in his early years to do right by
    those less fortunate. He was raised in a racially integrated household
    and himself has black roots
    through an Afro-Peruvian great-grandfather
    – the father of the maternal grandmother who helped raise him.

    A criminal justice student who aspired to become a judge, Zimmerman
    also concerned himself with the safety of his neighbors after a series
    of break-ins committed by young African-American men.

    Though civil rights demonstrators have argued Zimmerman should
    not have prejudged Martin, one black neighbor of the Zimmermans
    said recent history should be taken into account.

    “Let’s talk about the elephant in the room. I’m black, OK?” the woman
    said, declining to be identified because she anticipated backlash due to
    her race. She leaned in to look a reporter directly in the eyes. “There
    were black boys robbing houses in this neighborhood,” she said. “That’s
    why George was suspicious of Trayvon Martin.”

    PRAISE GOD…A must read on George Zimmerman’s case!

    Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz blasted Angela Corey, accusing her of hiding evidence favorable to Zimmerman and committing perjury!

    He said if he were the prosecutor, that he’d be hiring a lawyer at this point”!

  • Patty

    The rank hypocrisy of Democrats about race and guns is on full display in Florida, demonstrated by how Democrats are exploiting the death of Trayvon Martin. Two articles about this tragic case can be found on the Internet: “How Black Leaders Exploit Their People for Political and Financial Gain” by Gary DeMar and “Five Myths of the ‘Racist’ Criminal Justice System” by Larry Elder.

    Various groups of Democratic Party supporters are staging protests in Sanford, demanding the repeal of Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law in the wake of the killing of black teenager, Trayvon Martin, by a Hispanic man, George Zimmerman.

    None of those hypocritical Democrats called for a repeal of the Stand Your Ground law when a white man in Tampa, David James, was killed by a black man, Trevor Dooley, and Dooley invoked the Stand Your Ground law in his defense. An article is posted on the Internet about this case entitled “George Zimmerman & Trevor Dooley: Stand Your Ground Hypocrisy?” by Lee Stranahan.

    Meanwhile in Jacksonville, the NAACP is advocating the use of the Stand Your Ground law in support of a black woman, Marissa Danielle Alexander, who claimed self-defense against an abusive husband. The details about this case can be found in an article entitled “NAACP weighs in on what they say is a ‘Stand Your Ground’ case against Jacksonville woman” by Charles Broward.

    Such hypocrisy about the Stand Your Ground law shows clearly that Democrats are staging protests in the Trayvon Martin case for the sole purpose of inflaming racial tensions to garner black votes. An excellent analysis of Democrat contortions to create racial tensions in the Trayvon Martin case can be found in the article “Media Dishonesty and Race Hustlers” by Walter E. Williams.

    And if the Trayvon Martin protestors can help advance the liberal agenda of President Barack Obama and their fellow Democrats of getting guns out of the hands of average citizens and denying us our Second Amendment rights, Democrats would be happy. To see an eye-opening article on the origin of gun control, which was a concerted effort by Democrats to keep guns out of the hands of black slaves, see the article “Negroes With Guns” by Ann Coulter.

  • Patty


    I have a theory and it isn’t that great but I have noticed that The Republican Party chases the stories that drives them crazy. They jump on everything, because they see what they are doing to be out of sorts with the ways of this nations.

    But while doing this they (liberals, democrats and radicals) are on the move and are making roots in schools, government, energy, web, networks, they are infiltrating and it is getting harder and harder to stop them, if the Republicans are chasing after the next preposterous and sensationalized top story of the day.

    Let them do this. I only hope Zimmerman;’s lawyer makes a note of all this. Zimmerman can NOT get a fair trial ANYWHERE in America. They jury cannot be black( sad to say) because they are all biased. The jury cannot consist of white lefties who are biased either. Let them carry on and do this. It will only serve to screw things up for the trial. Someone please ensure that Zimmerman’s lawyer gets hold of all this info.
