Martin Luther King´s Son: Trayvon
Murdered Because He Was Black

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/25/2013 9:48:48 AM

On Saturday, Martin Luther King III, son of the civil rights icon, used a rally that honored the 50th anniversary of the Reverend Doctor´s "I Have a Dream" to politicize and inject race into the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, asserting he was killed because of the color of his skin. "Sadly, the tears of Trayvon Martin´s mother and father remind us that far too frequently the color of one´s skin remains a license to profile, arrest, and to even murder with no regard to the content of one´s character," Martin Luther King III declared. "Regressive ´stand your ground´ laws must

No, he was killed because he was a thug beating up and trying to intimidate a white Hispanic man who was capable of self-defense.

The black community very very rarely criticizes black idiots. Come to think of it, the Muslims don´t either.

#2 has it right. Trayvon was a ruthless thug, in trouble with the law, suspended from school; his parents had abandoned him, and he thought he could show this cracker a thing or two. But after jumping Zimmerman and bashing his head against the pavement a few times, he was shot dead. 0bama and Big 0prah both had to chime in on this one showing their ignorance. The black leaders would do well to use their influence and resources to educate their race, keep them in school, get off welfare, encourage them not to impregnate their girl friends, encourage them not to shoot defenseless infants in strollers, and encourage them not to beat defenseless old men to death with flashlights.

Martin died because he picked on a person who defend himself.
Why is the fact that Martins girlfriend said on the Piers Morgan show that Martin went after Zimmerman because Martin thought Zimmerman was gay. And where is the Gay communities outrage at someone being attacked because of hate for gay people.
The blacks that are falling for this are being played like a fiddle...unless they are just out for hatred of whites.

OK, let´s talk about traywon´s character. In trouble at home and school. Drugs, guns, gang talk, street fighter and so much more. He decided to jump the man who was following him inst4ead of leaving. I am sure he thought gz was easy pickings. He would beat him up and show him who was the man. Little did he know gz was packing and prepared to defend himself. There was a reason trayvon´s phone was not allowed into evidence. His character was on full display. And what kind of character did the murders of the Aussie and the WW II veteran have? There is evil abound.

It´s not the color, it´s the culture. Unfortunately, a disproportionate number of black people are so far removed from the mainstream of American life that they will fall for any jive race hustler (Jackson, Sharpton, Holder, Obama, Oprah----there´s no end to them) who will prey on their ignorance and fear to keep them down. Interesting how most of the black race hustlers are rich.

The Black community in the USA is the most racist part of America. They practice self-segregation and whine about ´whitey´ not giving them ´their fair share´.

This must stop if America is to survive.

The content of one´s character is often displayed on his or her cell phone or facebook page.
Saint Trayvon was on the wrong track, and his parents were not helping him by turning him loose on the community he was suspended, yet again, from school. He was trouble in H.S., and the school chose to keep law enforcement out of it when they found drugs and stolen property in his locker.
He was destined to die young, but likely at the hands of another black person. And had that happened, the black leaders would have said nuffin.
Theoffspring of Martin Luther King, Jr., are a pack of money loving vultures, often in court over control of MLK assets, including the King Center.

The new civil rights leaders depend upon perpetrating the hoax upon the ignorant and gullible for their political power, their financial well being and their status as "leaders". I doubt MLK would have been able to resist the same ploy had he lived. Just too much at stake.

If today´s black Democrats found a magic lamp their one wish would be that racism would run rampant in order to have the ammunition that would guarantee their power in Washington. It´s pitiful.

Martin III has never had a job. The only thing he knows how to do is take advantage of his name and talk about how the white man is evil. No one dares to question the crud that comes out of his mouth, because his dad has basically been given sainthood.

I bridle somewhat at referring to King as "Dr" given his plagiarism. I also point out that he was a man of the Left--indisputably great but undeniably a leftist. And his comments on Vietnam were uninformed and opportunistic. Like many who rose to an occasion and were cut down by violence, he has become more a talisman than a man. Whenever I hear "Dr. King would have..." I count my change.

Maybe he´s right. Let´s take him at his word. Maybe he´s saying that Trayvon was killed because black people are lawless, vicious thugs, and that no one should expect anything different from them. Maybe he´s acknowledging that we can look at a young black man and assume that he´s a violent criminal. Maybe he´s letting us know, in 2013, that black people are a lost cause. That´s not the message MLK tried to preach originally, but maybe that´s what the civil rights movement has devolved into.

The content of Trayvon´s character would have had him in jail had it ever been treated as it should have!

It wasn´t even brought into the trail, for the most part, and yet that of it which was proved more than enough to show the jury just what a thug he was, and that his actions (attacking Zimmerman) was right in line with who he was and how he conducted himself.

Blacks are only 12% of the US population. Don´t know the stats but seems to me they constitute 80% of domestic news coverage as it relates to a) murders/violent crime, b) income equality and living in poverty, c) single mothers, and d) voter ID rights and stupidity about how vote fraud nullifies their votes.

Yet another unsubstantiated attack upon the American justice system that aims to undermine confidence and inspire more racial division. Those who make such attacks are both black and white. They do not agree with the jury´s verdict. Somehow they think they know what REALLY happened and WHY, even though they were not present at the crime or the trial. They did not sit through the arguments, the evidence, the testimony, the examinations and cross-examinations of witnesses and experts, did not hear the judge´s instructions, did not listen to the closing arguments of both sides and did not participate in the jury´s deliberations. Yet they are convinced they know the truth - that the jury was wrong and George Zimmerman was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

This kind of basic ignorance and contempt for the legal process is irrational and dangerous. It reminds us that we have a large segment of the population for whom ideology trumps common sense, due process, presumption of innocence and personal integrity and respect for the truth. For only a profoundly dishonest person could possibly claim to know more than the Zimmerman jury about the Zimmerman case. These are people whose minds were made up almost at once and who will never change their dogmatic beliefs no matter what happens. If a properly conducted jury trial does not support their personal prejudices, so much the worse for the jury and the legal system itself.

Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment. As we´ve argued, the rule had zero to do with financial reform and was sneaked into the law by Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office. The latest rule-making tally comes from the Competitive Enterprise Institute´s Wayne Crews, who on April 29 will publish his annual review of federal regulation in

Fiscal Policy: Remember President Obama´s vow that, if re-elected, he´d pursue "balanced" deficit reduction? Either he forgot, or he hopes voters have, because a new report shows his latest budget is entirely unbalanced. When Obama released his budget this March, he said it included "smart spending cuts" and closed "tax loopholes" that benefit only "the wealthiest Americans." Obama added that his budget would put "our debt on a downward path as a share of our total economy, which independent experts have set as a critical target for fiscal responsibility." As with just about everything Obama says, none of these claims turns out be

Corruption: New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of Tea Party and other conservative groups. This is no mere scandal — it´s a major breach of the law. The newly released emails were gathered for a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan public interest law group. They show that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner discussed with the Justice Department going after conservative groups that she believed lied about their political activities. What´s shocking is that this discussion came just days before Lerner acknowledged that the IRS had

Flat on his belly in a sniper position, wearing a baseball cap and a flak jacket, a protester aimed his semi-automatic rifle from the edge of an overpass and waited as a crowd below stood its ground against U.S. federal agents in the Nevada desert. He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy´s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management. The rangers had rounded up hundreds of Bundy´s cattle, which

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) is warning the Obama administration to not issue an executive order requiring that all new guns be made with biometric technology, such as finger-print recognition or bracelets. Cornyn raised the issue in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, who in testimony earlier this month highlighted biometric bracelets and fingerprint identification as a safety issue. “Your testimony has raised serious concerns for my constituents given President Obama’s track-record of acting beyond the scope of his legal authority and your hostility to the individual right to self-defense under the Second Amendment,” Cornyn wrote. “Is the Obama administration currently exploring

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander.

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
