For those protesting the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, you must protest each and every young man’s murder.
For I have friends of all races.
And if you merely protest Trayvon’s death, you are telling me (and the world) that you are a racist. That it takes a White-Hispanic man to elevate you to action.
And that same race violence is acceptable:
- A man, who identified himself as Mohawk Gaz, sports an image of black teenager Trayvon Martin on his hair during a Miami rally.
- Mike Tyson at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen in 2011
Mike Tyson is certainly not the sharpest knife in the drawer. He has a big mouth and does not think before he speaks. Miracle of miracles, he has his own show in Vegas.
He also recently had the opportunity to weigh in on the George Zimmerman affair:
As a black kid who grew up in Brooklyn, who was beat up, and then moved to the Catskills, and has had to deal with racial issues, what are your thoughts about the Trayvon Martin case?
My personal feeling is that, as a young kid that was beat on by a bully, the guy [Zimmerman] stalked him and didn’t follow instructions from a superior officer. But my all-around perspective, I wasn’t there. I don’t know what happened. Even though this is the best country in the world, certain laws in this country are a disgrace to a nation of savages. It’s a majority versus a minority. That’s the way God planned it. He didn’t want to do something about it, He wanted us to do something about it. We have to continue tweeting, we have to continue marching, we have to continue fighting for Trayvon Martin. If that’s not the case, he was killed in vain, and we’re just waiting for it to happen to our children. It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. Forget about him being arrested—the fact that he hasn’t been shot yet is a disgrace. That’s how I feel personally about it. [Laughs]
What are you saying, Mike? You call Americans savages and then wonder why no one has shot George Zimmerman? Who is the savage? Or am I misunderstanding something?
The Trayvon Martin affair in Florida is still unwinding. All the facts haven’t yet surfaced. Still, there are Americans, Brooklyn New Yorkers, exercising their right to peaceful assembly:
- Tyrone Boykins, of the Brooklyn borough of New York, takes part in the Million Hoodie March in Union Square Wednesday, March 21, 2012 in New York. The march was in memory of Trayvon Martin, a black teenager shot to death by a Hispanic neighborhood watch captain in Florida. The teenager was unarmed and was wearing a hoodie.
So the gentlemen has a sign taped his hoodie: Do I Look Suspicious? The truth? Yeah, you look suspicious. The sunglasses, the hoodie, the ankh. That ankh is a real give-away.
