Trayvon Martin isn’t the first person to die because of the color of their skin and will not be the last…. And this country does not care. Sincerely does not care. In FACT they would much rather get back to news that is worth their time… because hearing about racism that is a fucking life and death reality… does not matter unless it is a reality for white people. Republicans were polled, poll’d whatever they were tired of hearing about trayvon martin. and the white people poll’d 43% said they were tired of hearing about Trayvon Martin. a month is too long. remember JonBenet Ramsey, the white girl who was murdered in her house? Literally covered for years with no complaints.
This cure the world with love shit…. That’s some PRIVILEGED SHIT. Stop it. They don’t care if we get murdered by their enforced oppression let alone if we love them in spite of their oppression. Have y’all lost your minds? Its like maybe if we prayed hard enough *scoff* or maybe if we just accept it because our glory comes in the next life *double scoff* maybe we should do it out of love because love conquers all *all the scoffs*
you think Trayvon’s mother didn’t love her sun more than air itself. That she has to live with the rest of her life “with ifs” and “what abouts” and “why not mes”? As if the love for our young that we carried, created, and protected isn’t enough. We must have your love too for them to be seen as human.
I am sick of it. I am enraged. And if it is not right for me to be enraged it’s only because the death of me or mine does not enrage you. You can not see how they are worth YOUR care, hell half of you don’t see how black children are worth OUR care. OUR fight. You just want us to stop complaining about it already. And who gives a fuck if this is our everyday. Y’all mad we’re talking about it. Rubbing our racist filled lives in your faces.
Its ugly and you’d rather we die quietly in order to get away from the guilt of being passive in our deaths. The guilt of your non-action essentially sanctioning racism. The guilt of not caring enough. Kill em with kindness huh… if only that shit worked.
YES YOUR SILENCE MEANS YOU DO NOT CARE. IF YOU POST ABOUT GAY RIGHTS, TRANS RIGHTS, VEGAN RIGHTS, RIGHTS FOR INDIGENOUS PEOPLE, RIGHTS FOR DISABLED PEOPLE, RIGHTS FOR EVERY OPPRESSED PEOPLE EXCEPT BLACK PEOPLE——-especially at places of INTERSECTIONALITY…
Then I fucking see you. With all the lights on.
And yes this how I feel. And YES its right for me to feel this way. Your silence makes me fear for the world… when Burke was discussing how all it takes is the silence of good men to allow evil to prevail, he wasn’t talking about the oppressed. Lawd have mercy. and as I get older and having children weighs heavy on my mind your silence makes me fear for their world…..
Justice for all the young men and women who have lost their lives based on the color of their skin, whether death by education for the poor, prison for the poorly represented, gunned down in their own neighborhood, and for those imprisoned by the neighborhood.
and justice for the black men and women who have lost their lives and never received justice because only black people cared about the issue.
If you care about human beings and their right to walk freely down the street without facing harm… if you care about human beings regardless of color, sex, pgp, or creed and their murderers running free…. if you think its wrong to hold someone else’s life as less than simply because he is black than sign the petition for Trayvon Martin. sign it because you are aware this world isn’t fair. you are aware that being a person of color in this world means that you may be shot and killed and your white murderer runs free. sign this because no parent should have to bury their child especially because of racism. Justice for Trayvon Martin.
Sign the petition, share the petition and call and email these people and tell them to release the 911 tapes and arrest Trayvon’s MURDERER

Trayvon Martin a 17 year old black boy, was murdered by his white neighbor (zimmerman) while walking home from the store. His white neighbor said that he shot 17 year old Trayvon in the chest in the name of self defense. Zimmerman exited his car to shoot Trayvon after calling 911…. police only found Skittles and Ice Tea on the murdered boy. Zimmerman was not arrested. This is what America is for black people in 2012. so yes, Professor Bell was right, Civil rights was a sham. You cant even walk in your own neighborhood without being shot and then the white counterpart (because lets face it if he were black he wouldve) going free possibly to kill ANOTHER black neighbor walking home from the store. You cant even count on the police to not kill you. 2 murders of unarmed black males in new orleans BY THE POLICE. THIS is america. THIS happened THIS week. now look me in the eye and tell me its equal here. tell me that my life carries the same value as a white persons. lie to me. tell me these sweet american lies.
JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON MARTIN.
and i’m starting a petition to the D.A. i’ll circulate in a moment.
Martin, 17, a high school junior who lived with his mother in Miami, was visiting his father and stepmother at their home in Sanford, a suburb of Orlando, on the weekend of Feb. 26. During halftime of the NBA All-Star Game, Martin’s family said he walked to a nearby convenience store to get some…
shot by his own neighborhood watch. being black in america….. i’m going to say this again because i think it needs to be said. THIS is the family President Obama needs to be reaching out to. FUCK sandra fluke and her feelings of being called names while PoC have been called way worse for way longer on the SAME program and she was silent as all the shit. This young intelligent (not that THAT even fuckin matters) black boy was shot and killed by his own neighborhood watch because he was black and obviously black people are too dangerous to live in an affluent white neighborhood. and for all the white people SILENT about this issue because they dont care or havent even bothered to look into how their white privilege literally KILLS us can suck all the AIDs dicks in the world. and yes thats vulgar and yes its coming from a place of hate and YES YOU DESERVE IT.
