Trayvon Martin: The Teachable Moment That Never Was

By
July 15, 2013

Tragically, if unsurprisingly, a President, culture and media forever in search of its so called teachable moments is perfectly content to ignore the only genuine one in the George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin story. They do that despite it being an absolutely critical one, perhaps capable of helping to save hundreds of thousands of lives over time. trayvon martin

Put directly and too harshly, the tragic reality is that Trayvon Martin got, not only what he deserved, but what he sought, with or without realizing it, on the night of his encounter with George Zimmerman. Less bluntly, thug-life and even wannabe thug-life is not a good life, rarely a long life and never a life that any young man – or woman – of any color or race should want to pursue. Every indication is that Martin was doing precisely that and whatever, if any, intervention his family was employing wasn’t working.

As I said on Twitter, here was a 17 year-old boy serving a ten day suspension from school. If Trayvon Martin had been grounded and at home, instead of wandering the night alone and unsupervised the night he encountered Zimmerman, he’d most likely still be alive. But we no longer seem to be able to admit truths like that as a society for some reason, particularly as it relates to minority cultures. No, that’s racist! Yet, it’s those cultures, not some notion of a white America paying the price for it.

See: In 513 Days Between Trayvon Dying and the Zimmerman Trial Verdict, 11,106 Blacks Have Been Murdered by OTHER BLACKS for example.

Even more sadly, now inspired by so many of the very sports and entertainment icons ringing their hands over Trayvon Martin and making ignorant, hateful comments about Zimmerman and whites as a whole, more and more young people in America actually seem to be inspired to pursue a lifestyle that, if it doesn’t kill them, will likely ruin them. Lacking the prowess of a first round draft pick, even a half-way decent pop singer, or Hollywood ingenue, when they’re done, all they’ll have left is some cheap bling and the tattoos. Whoop de fricking doo.

But try to point that out and all you’ll get is attacked.

On Monday, The Daily Caller published a list of Martin’s tweets—his handle was @NO_LIMIT_NIGGA—that reveal him as a posturing teenager rather than a choirboy. (“Lol so daisha think she a boss caus she walked in class late 2day…I do dat everyday,” says one.) The story notes that the photograph attached to the account depicts Martin “smiling, gold-toothed, into a camera in front of an electronic dartboard.” Meanwhile the media was flooded with the news, if one could call it that, that Martin was once suspended from school for possession of a plastic baggie with marijuana residue on it.

First, there was the discussion of what Trayvon Martin was wearing. “I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was,” Geraldo Rivera said on Fox & Friends last week, later suggesting that the sweatshirt made him look like a “wannabe gangster.” Then conservative bloggers started digging through Martin’s Facebook page for information that might raise doubts about his character. It turns out that one of Martin’s friends had written, under a happy birthday message, “damn were you at nigga needa plant;” according to Dan Riehl at Riehl World View, “Some may interpret that as Martin having somehow been involved in selling [marijuana].”

Try to show any concern over issues directly contributing to the murder of over ten thousand blacks in less than two years by spotlighting elements of Martin’s life and his bad choices – and that makes you a racist? Talk about a world upside down. And worse, the very people committed to covering up this reality are being celebrated as heroes and leaders. They are keeping generation after generation of urban blacks trapped in lives filled with poverty, desperation and untimely death, enslaved now not to plantation owners but to liberal politicians – including our first black President – who ply them with goodies for votes, neither of which are meant to truly satisfy them as human beings.

Shame on them – the Sharptons, Corey Bookers and Barack Obamas disgust me.

Obama On Trayvon Martin Case: ‘If I Had A Son, He’d Look Like Trayvon’ 

Right. But I doubt he’d be thrilled were he suspended from school for ten days and still out roaming unsupervised at night, or getting high and posting images of it – or discussing buying illegal guns on Twitter with Dad – would he?

Trayvon Martin’s Own Father Was One of The people texting Trayvon about buying and selling guns – Researching the Names From Don West Delivered Proffer Hearing…. (multiple francining moments)

All the race baiting and ignorant pandering of Obama and his ilk does is consign yet more young blacks to an early grave. They aren’t leaders; they’re pimps, as well as panderers and they’d be ashamed of themselves if they had any integrity or interest beyond their own selfish political ambitions.

Trayvon Martin brought an empty bag of Skittles to a gun fight he thought was going to be a beat down of his own doing and he got killed. That’s life in the big city, or just another day in the hood if you prefer, bro. Deal with it. Neither Obama and his fellow pols, nor the media, or the sports and entertainment icons have the courage, or wisdom to speak the kind of truth to genuinely begin to put an end to it. So, get back to me in a year or two after another 10,000 blacks have been murdered without so much as a peep from your sorry asses and tell me how much you care.

    So you’re saying he got what he deserved because 1. He had on hoodie which portrayed him a gangster. Not only was it raining a hoodie is jacket like any other. 2. He should’ve been at home because he should’ve been on punishment?? However Zimmerman who wanted to be captain save a hoe from what? That night followed Martin because he profiled him. Pretty much your saying he wouldn’t have gotten shot if he did not look like the type of person to shoot. That is ignorant of you? Kids smoke weed and do all kinds of shit they are not suppose to do that would portray them as “bad” “gangster” whatever you want to call it. It doesn’t make it right for a life to be taken just because you look a certain way. Zimmerman pursued Martin for no logical reason. Because “they always get away”. If you have any young teenagers or you yourself walk outside. And you look like or they look like they should be followed and possibly in some type of conflict that’s naive and dumb. Leave it up to people like you to make the rules. I would be following people that wear bandanas because they look like a threat to me. O let me make sure I have a gun on me just in case I have to make a lesson out of that person because since they like to wear bandanas they definitely deserve to get shot. WTF

    • Ragspierre says:

      “Zimmerman pursued Martin for no logical reason.”

      And you are lying…or culpably ignorant…for no logical reason.

      The logical reasons to watch and maintain contact with Martin are many.

      There were so many, the police were dispatching a patrol car to check out the “child”.

      They did not include wearing a hoodie. They certainly did not include knowing about drug use.

      They DID include some very suspicious behavior.

      If you don’t understand all that, you should really read up on the case.

      And Martin was shot for only one reason: he was committing a deadly assault on Zimmerman.

    • Steve In Tulsa says:

      Wow Justine. You just invented a bunch of nonsense. Martin attacked and assaulted Zimmerman. We have all heard the recordings of Zimmerman crying like a little girl for help. Zimmerman finally shot Martin to save his own life. Those are the facts.

    • Steve In Tulsa says:

      You clearly have no knowledge of the case. Zimmerman walked away from Martin for five minutes. When he returned to his truck Martin was waiting for him, jumped him, knocked him to the ground and started beating his head into the ground over and over while breaking his nose. Zimmerman screamed like a girl. Anyone who heard those recordings would agree he screamed like a girl. He was scared. So he shot Martin to save himself from Martins attacks. Zimmerman stopped following Martin and walked away. If Martin had the same he would be alive today. But Martin chose to attack a man Martin had decided was gay. This was an anti-gay hate crime. But Martin was very confused. Zimmerman wasn’t gay; he was the neighborhood watch. Oops! You cannot go around assaulting people for merely watching you.

    • Federale says:

      He should have been shot for his twitter handle alone.

  2. Jason says:

    Obviously you’re ingnorant Ragspiss. “No logical reason” as in was he a cop? Did he have any authority to follow the kid? No.. This all comes down to who pursued who? Like why can’t YOU see that. He called the cops that should’ve been it. They even told him not follow him. So “he got what he deserved” on what ground. Zimmerman started something he didnt have to. The end. But that’s ok because your right in the category with him. Let you do the same thing and you’ll definitely have a target on your back forever. So you can fuck off with the other hell bound people who think its ok to go pick fights.

    • Ragspierre says:

      Well, I’ll be happy to compare knowledge of this matter you, you stupid phuc.

      Read the non-emergency call transcript, as I have. You can find it with a little effort.

      I do not need anyone’s permission to follow someone, and no dispatcher has any authority to tell me to do anything, as the dispatcher testified at trial. You knew that, right?

      But the point was that Martin attacked Zimmerman. Even supposing, as you ignorantly do, various facts that are simply WRONG, that does not give Martin any license to do anything but go home.

      He did not. And he certainly could have, if he was “scared”. Which all evidence shows he was NOT.

      BTW, I would not say he got what he “deserved”. I would say that Zimmerman defended himself, just as I would, and just as I would support you doing.

      • BobC562 says:

        What about the fact that Martin had the right to stand his ground? He was lawfully on the property, being followed by somebody when he was doing nothing wrong.

        • Ragspierre says:

          You are alluding to a specific statute.

          It says stuff. Look it up. Read.

          You will feel enlightened. And less ignorant.

        • Steve In Tulsa says:

          IF Martin had merely ‘stood his ground’ then he wouldn’t have assaulted Zimmerman, thrown the first punch, and pinned Zimmerman on the ground. Martin had a responsibility to retreat but he ambushed and assaulted the ‘white’ Latino.

        • Steve In Tulsa says:

          ‘Stand you ground’ has a completely
          different meaning than ‘Tackle and beat strangers.’ Had Martin ‘Stood His Ground’ he would have been standing there alone
          and Zimmerman would have gotten in his
          truck and returned home.

    • Steve In Tulsa says:

      Zimmerman stopped following Martin and walked off in the opposite direction for five minutes. When he walked back to his truck Martin was laying in wait, jumped out, attacked Zimmerman, and pinned him on the concrete. Those are the facts. The ‘white’ Latino followed no one.

  3. Aaron Baker says:

    “I do not need anyone’s permission to follow someone.”

    No, you don’t; but if you do it at night to a total stranger who isn’t doing anything wrong and has every right to be where he is, don’t whine if he concludes (quite reasonably) that YOU pose a threat to HIM–you stupid dumber-than-dirt little racist cracker.

    • Ragspierre says:

      You don’t know your ass from your mouth, do you?

      If someone is following me, just maintaining observation, I turn and say, “Hey, my name is Trayvon. I’m staying with my Dad in number ____.”

      I don’t racially profile them as a “creepy-ass[ed] crackah”.

      See, I respect people.

      And, once I’ve lost them, as the evidence shows, I don’t go back and cold-cock them.

      You stupid, dumber-than-dog-shit little racist phuc.

      • Aaron Baker says:

        My goodness, an ape that talks! You sound ALMOST like a human being!

        • Ragspierre says:

          I love the whimper of surrender from the loooosers who occupy the STOOOOOOOOOoooooopid end of the bell-curve.

          All they’ve got is ad homenim in the end.

          And your end came very early. It was sweet, btw.

    • Steve In Tulsa says:

      The only racist I see here is Aaron
      Baker. If Martin had introduced himself
      instead of tackling Zimmerman he would be alive today. Only a thug attacks strangers protecting their neighborhoods.

  4. Darek says:

    Another racist shithead trying to retroactively justify the shooting of an innocent kid by a wannabe cop.

    • Ragspierre says:

      You are just another know-nothing idiot.

      Why is race any part of this, btw?

      Just because Trayvon was black? But we know that had nothing to do with this.

      Zimmerman had no racist thought in his head. He is the OPPOSITE of a racist.

      And an Obama voter, btw. So, you can make a case he is not terribly bright…

    • Steve In Tulsa says:

      You are the shit heel liberal fascist
      desperately trying to rewrite history. Martin Assaulted Zimmerman. Zimmerman feared for his life. Martin was shot.

      Civilized people to not attack one
      another. Zimmerman attacked no one.
      Martin had a hatred of homosexuals and
      had decided Zimmerman was gay, and determined to beat him.

  5. Aaron Baker says:

    “If Trayvon Martin had been grounded and at home, instead of wandering the night alone and unsupervised the night he encountered Zimmerman, he’d most likely still be alive.”

    My goodness, a teenage boy out at night, ungrounded! A teenage boy who may have (heavens!) confronted and fought someone who was stalking him.

    Ordinarily, I don’t think people of ordinary decency or more than a 2-digit IQ would conclude that a teenage boy sought AND deserved to be shot to death for the above-stated actions. There must have been something special about this teenager. What could it have been, I wonder? Dan Riehl of course has never said anything that suggests he’s a brain-dead pecker-head racist . . . so what could it possibly be?

    • Ragspierre says:

      “I don’t think people of ordinary decency or more than a 2-digit IQ would conclude that a teenage boy sought AND deserved to be shot to death for the above-stated actions.”

      Well, of course not! That is why you lied about them.

      Martin should have been in the criminal justice system in Dade County, where he had been discovered committing various petty crimes. Instead, the bureaucrats who ran his school were “lowing crime” by simply not dealing with it as crime.

      Would Martin be alive today, but for that? Likely.

      Would Martin be alive today if, after being expelled and sent by his overwhelmed mother to stay with dad, dad had curtailed his social life just enough to sit on his rapidly declining son? Very likely.

      Would Martin be alive today if he just thought of others with a modicum of respect?

      Very, very likely.

      He didn’t. He was shot to death when he attacked someone for absolutely no reason, when he could have gone home several times that night.

      And YOU are the racist. Racist.

    • Dizzy79 says:

      its not ok to punch someone just because they are following you. And he was doing his duty as neighborhood watch. He contacted the authorities, Trayvon was walking between houses and acting suspicious not skipping down the sidewalk.

  6. Ragspierre says:

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/07/penn-university-prof-says-zimmerman-let-off-because-god-is-a-white-racist/

    Well. That IS a theory, at least…

    Holy crap… OR “wholly crap”….

  7. David R. Graham says:

    Thought occurs: that “Ragspierre” is our host.

    Whatever, the chap does a fine job confounding the confounders with facts – here and elsewhere.

  8. Lana says:

    He got what he deserved? Would you feel the same way if your own teenage child had been killed?

    No matter how misguided or how in to “thug culture” Martin was, I think it’s disgusting to say he “deserved” to die. This situation should not be regarded as anything other than a tragedy. Even the gun-slinging right wing who actually supports Zimmerman’s decision to shoot an unarmed minor should still at least bear SOME sympathy for Trayvon and his family. Unless, you know, they have no souls.

    • Ragspierre says:

      I don’t think that kids who kill themselves and their buds in drunk driving or cell-phone distracted driving incidents “deserve to die”, either.

      And conservatives are no less sympathetic and empathetic than you, you poor stupid Collectivist.

      But we DO insist on reality, which you apparently have a lot of trouble with. Causes lead to effects.

      Conservatives support your right to self-defense as a basic civil right. You don’t?

      You are aware that more people are killed each year by hands and feet than by rifles, right? Martin was armed. And he was committing a furious attack on another.

      The facts of the case show Zimmerman screamed for help for the better part of a minute, while Martin continued his attack, even after hearing a neighbor yell for him to stop, and warning him he was calling the police.

      You have to THINK about all this, unless, you know, you have no brains.

    • charles says:

      He obviously deserves sympathy but parading him as a martyr is wrong – he is an embodiment of the black stereotypical image that a white person in the 50s would believe. Supporting Martin surely makes ‘black’ people look worse – aren’t people supporting a lost cause? To be honest, if martin was white and he died there would be much less support and the verdict would have been the same. Martin, as far as my knowledge goes, was a bad kid.

      • Ragspierre says:

        Just for the record, I was a bad kid, too.

        LOTS of stuff I did could have, and maybe should have, ended my life.

        It is often a wonder to me any male humans make it through puberty.

      • Steve In Tulsa says:

        “black stereotypical democrat in the fifties would believe.”

        Don’t you dare try to include Republicans in your ‘white people’. We Republicans
        were fighting for the equality black vote in the fifties along side MLK.

    • Dizzy79 says:

      his parents sued the homeowners association for 7 figures.And my kids are taught to not talk to strangers and to come home if they are confronted, not attack someone and break thier nose.

  9. Lana says:

    Also, Martin “attacked for no reason”? So many of you have such a raging hard-on for an American’s right to “self-defense” with a firearm, but Zimmerman was being PURSUED and FOLLOWED by a man with a gun. Why didn’t he have a right to defend himself?

    • Lana says:

      *Martin, not Zimmerman. I apologize for the typo.

    • Ragspierre says:

      Martin had no idea who was “following him”, any more than Zimmerman knew Martin was a petty criminal in the complex because he had been expelled and sent to stay with his father.

      He also, at the time of the confrontation, was NOT “following” anybody. Read, you poor ignorant thing. Do NOT believe the BS you hear. The trial is well documented.

  10. snoball says:

    Why do you people attack Ragspierre? He is the lone voice of reason on this blog. Having just looked at the archives I see he is a brilliant man of letters with a vast knowledge of all subjects. Were you all not so tightly wrapped in your collectivist cocoons you might see the wisdom in his words. Consider them instead as a beacon for freedom that will lead you from your’ dark existence. He is a true American patriot.

  11. Ragspierre says:

    While I certainly disagree with her most of the time, this Collectivist defense attorney should be read.

    http://www.talkleft.com/

    Scroll down for her opinion of the Corey decision to even bring charges against Zimmerman.

    Da Dersh (Alan Derschowitz) also asserts the same thing.

    I have disagreed with him, btw, when he first assailed Corey. As a matter of Florida criminal procedure, her original charging instrument was not out of line.

    (If it were, you’d have heard a lot about it from the Florida criminal law bar.)

His screen name was no limit nigga for God’s sake. Someone is following you and you’ve got two choices – go at them or leave. If you go at them, have a bigger gun than they do. Not a skittles bag. Which by the way is a No Limit lyric BTW – C-Murder kept his rocks up in a Skittles bag. Think about it – this one isnt about race at all. No one out there really wants anyone to die unless they’ve done something to them. Eye for an eye. Trayvon would have shot Zimmerman if he attacked him right?

    • do-wop says:

      “Eye for an eye.” One of the reasons that book of fantasy is so well read is pertly due to the fact that no matter what your belief may be, you can always find a verse of scripture to support it. For example, the same thumpers who are forever using the “eye for an eye” analogy never quote the verse from Romans.

      “Vengance is mine saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy doth hunger, feed him. If he doth thirst, give him drink, for in so doing though shalt pour coals of fire on his head.” Or, just shoot his ass.

      • Ragspierre says:

          Fat George got his ass kicked by a 17 year old. He probably hurt his head falling when he attempted a move he was incapable of performing. His martial arts instructor says he was incompetent. He certainly hurt his pride. Why are you so angry Rags? Look on the bright side from George’s Point of view. He and his obese wife no longer have to steal from their defense fund to buy ham hocks at the Piggly Wiggly. He can now ghost write a book. He gets his gun back and can step up and join a Florida chapter of the Guardian Angels. He will get a cool looking jacket and a spiffy looking beret. Like the one he never earned in the service of anything other than Neighborhood Jerkoff. He can travel in packs of 6, ensuring he never gets his ass kicked again by a teenager. Life is good for George. Be happy Rags! You won. You struck a blow against unliked walking down a street.

    An Open Letter: Trayvon Deserves Justice

    35 LGBT groups issue Trayvon Martin statement

    We cannot begin to imagine the continued pain and suffering endured by Trayvon Martin’s family and friends. We stand in solidarity with them as they continue to fight for justice, civil rights and closure. And we thank everyone who has pushed and will continue to push for justice.
    ———————–

    Aaaaaand, as usual with the Collective, they occupy “Opposite World”, where what you say is the complete OPPOSITE of what the truth is.

    Martin’s parents and the entire race-hustling industry (including the Racial Justice Department under Holder) are working against justice, civil rights, and closure.

    Those are the last things they want, as you can tell by their conduct.

  22. Ray Edwards says:

    Indeed all of these things may in fact be true but George Zimmerman didn’t know any of that when he follwed Trayvon. He saw a black male that he assumed was up to no good. He had no reason other than his skin color to follow him. A hoodie doesn’t matter. 100′s of millions of black hoodies are sold in America every year and George Zimmerman formed an assumption based on what he assumed a criminal would look like. 42% of Americans have smoked marijuana and your friends probably have as well. That does not make 42% of Americans, irrelevant point that he smoked marijuana. Kids get suspended for fighting all the time. It’s what children do. He was a child, A MINOR!!! If he had been smaller and George Zimmerman had been able to subdue him he still would have assaulted a minor that for no reason. However, since Trayvon was larger and able to defend himself against a man that followed and assualted him he deserved to be shot? Had Trayvon been 21 with a conceal and carry license and turned and shot Zimmerman for suspiciously following him would you justify that the same way

    But that doesn’t fit the “these Conservative gun-slingers are gonna KILL US ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLlllllllllllllllllllll” BS of the Collective and Mushroom Media.

    Nor does that fact that crime drops as gun ownership and the right to bear them by the law-abiding goes up. Funny. I wonder why THAT would be…???

    Good post. I understand something more challenging on different weblogs everyday. It usually is stimulating you just read content using their company writers and exercise a little something from their website. I’d prefer to use some with the content material on my blog whether a person don’t mind. Natually I’ll supply you with a link on your web blog. Many thanks for sharing.

    I believe in free speech but the writer of this article is an idiot! If you think the killing (whether completely intentional or not) of a 17 yr old boy is “what he deserved” for smoking pot and getting suspended from school, you’re a bigger idiot than Zimmerman! The fact is Trayvon Martin may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time but he wasn’t doing anything but walking down a public street in his father’s neighborhood. This is supposed to be a free country so there wasn’t anything wrong with him walking to the store to get snacks. The bottom line is Zimmerman shouldn’t have approached Trayvon after the 9-1-1 operator told him to stand down and wait for the police!

      Read up on the case. AFTER you know your ass from a cypress stump, see how many false statements are in that sentence.

      I mean, according to the EVIDENCE.

    LIFE IN OBAMA’S AMERICA: “The family rescued by George Zimmerman after a rollover crash in Florida are terrified they will become targets for hate mobs.”

    We are SOOOOOOOooooo lucky to have Pres. Snoop-Dog to lead our post-racial reality.

    “Clearly, the left’s desire to further the George Zimmerman racism narrative trumps the principles of accuracy and journalistic integrity.”

    And, while the woman involved was forthright about what she was doing, she has at least recognized the effect and apologized, which took some integrity.

    It will be fun to see if any of the journalists involved follow suit…

        From you sucking me…???

        Naw. I would never let you near me, you bung-sucking Collectivist puke.

        • do-wop says:

          That’s OK Rags. While you are busy all day long fellating this site as you pleasure yourself, I am busy with your wife and daughter. So keep those comments coming as often as I am. They are both very nice people.

          • Ragspierre says:

            What a complete moron.

            And a totally apt example of how the Collective actually regards women.

            Way to go…!!! I’d say “Keep it up”, but we both know you have trouble there.

          • do-wop says:

            Your wife doesn’t think so. She shared with me how much you like to dress up in your Girl Scout, Tinkerbell, and other costumes while you spank your skippy and write your comments.

          • Ragspierre says:

            Yep. We’re down to the pure projection/confession/fantasizing now.

            We all see you, and we’re all laughing.

            So you dress in girls outfits and call your glang “Skippy”…!?!?!?!

            What do you wear when you suck a guy’s bung? Same, or different?

          • do-wop says:

            That makes so little sense I can’t even respond to it. I imagine it makes some sort of sense in that labyrinthine void you mistake for a brain.
            Every neocon blog has a version of Rags. Without your incisive commentary the blog would surely perish. What would Riehl do without you? And every neocon blog has somebody like me who sees you for the algae that you are. You are not even capable of clever. Fun to lead around, like a cat with a laser pointer. Almost as futile because like the pussy that you are, you keep trying to catch it, unable to process the fact that you can’t.
            Your wife says to tell you hello.

            “…labyrinthine void…”

            Oh, how FUN…!!!

            You are reduced to oxymoronic blathering!

            AND you are a liar.

            Excellent example of your Collective.

          • do-wop says:

            “Oh, how FUN…!!! If that statement doesn’t prove that you are having gender issues then I don’t know what does. No wonder mama is hanging out with me. Maybe you will get your problem straightened out. Pun intended.
            Labyrinthine void: a bewildering complex of nothingness; a deceptive vacuum.
            Dante said it best. “Abandon hope all ye who enter here.” That would be you when you wake up every morning.

          • Ragspierre says:

            Like so much else, you don’t know what does…

            What’s funny is you are completely delusional about your own significance. You think you have some.

            Well, you DID make the papers…

    Tracy Martin is a wonderful, dedicated father…to his dead son.

    Who might be alive today had his father been a little more involved with him.

    What a great example of the lying lies of the Collectivist Mushroom Media in this case.

    The unhappy confluence of the druid Collectivist religion of “environmentalism”, wedded to farm lobbyists, with certified smart people central planners.

    So, with HUGE supplies of oil at our doorsteps, we burn food crops in our cars.

    Brilliant.
