If I Had A Son……By obama, Barack
“Obviously this is a tragedy”………
There are now circulating more recent and up to date photos purported to be of Treyvon Martin, at approximately 17 years old. He is the lad that died after an encounter with neighborhood watch
white supremest Hispanic George Zimmerman.
(Reuters) – President Barack Obama weighed into the controversial killing of a black teenager in Florida in very personal terms on Friday, comparing the boy to a son he doesn’t have and calling for American “soul searching” over how the incident occurred.
Seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin, dressed in a “hoodie” sweatshirt, was shot dead a month ago in Sanford, Florida by a 28-year-old white Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer who said he was acting in self-defense.
“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Obama said in his first comments about the shooting, acknowledging the racial element in the case.
“Obviously, this is a tragedy,” Obama told reporters. “I can only imagine what these parents are going through. And when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids.”
Of course I am not trying to imply that a person’s style makes him a bad guy. But seeing this “style” does go a way to helping us understand how a person could feel a sense of unease and concern if suddenly they encounter a stranger in their neighborhood who is inclined to give off a “vibe” of sorts.
In the past few days the death of the teen, which occurred a MONTH ago, has become the hot
ticket topic for the race baiting obsessed black “leaders” like Sharpton, and Farrakan. Then obama decided to get him some of that action by going all heartfelt, and attention whoring this tragedy into a campaign opportunity.
Yesterday I had to suffer through dozens of “news reports” about obama’s response to the tragedy. EVERY news break focused exclusively on this…..gee, do you think that the media gang got the memo? Ahhhh, memories of the Arizona
campaign rally memorial after Gabby Giffords was shot.
Here is a close-up of Treyvon. Again, I am NOT suggesting that any harm should befall a person based on his style choices. If you got an eyeful of my middle sons tattoos and ear plugs, you would know that I mean this sincerely. My son looks fairly formidable, being over six feet tall, pierced, tatted, strangely dressed – you’ve seen the type, it’s not uncommon now. But he is almost the opposite as his style would lead you to believe. I can certainly understand if a person felt some level of discomfort around my son based solely on his appearance. It is human nature. My son knows this too. He doesn’t let the startled looks in his direction bother him, he looks different by choice. He expects the reactions.
In the photo below is how we have been seeing Treyvon packaged – cause you bet your ass he is being used as a commodity by those “leaders” who make a living off of the race “Activist” hustle.
The article states this picture is “undated”.. well hell yeah, it’s undated. He is probably about 13 years old, looks like a pretty cheerful guy. Worlds different than in his more recent photos.
Of course, there are now calls for George Zimmerman to be arrested for murder – a month after this occurred. The new Black Panthers have apparently put out some “Wanted, Dead or Alive” posters. Every race hustling bastard in the US has hustled up to take advantage of this teens death. Even “occupy wall street” gamers are using this to have darling little riots. What this has to do with their “cause”, I can not possible imagine. Pretty certain they can’t either, but hey, it gets some news coverage for the narcissistic little missing links. That is their sole agenda.
Of course the media reported on this by first introducing us to George Zimmerman as a white man who shot a young boy JUST BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK.
As often happens, more details are now emerging, details which indicate that Zimmerman was on the ground underneath of the teenager, being pretty soundly pounded. It appears that there was a witness to this, and there are records of the statements.
Will the media recant? Dear me. Ah, no. No they won’t. But I HAVE noticed that all the fawning over obama clutching this Trayvon to his bosom as the prototype of his own son, has mercifully gone silent.
I am a mom, so I feel a tremendous amount of empathy for the Martins. Whatever the circumstances on that day were, it’s the parents that suffer and must find a way forward through terrible pain. I am sure that they felt comforted by the attention obama gave their son. Too bad he was on a soapbox when he delivered it.
UPDATE 3/26: Seems a blogger out there tracked down some info on Trayvon, and claims to have verified it. It explains why the press is using all of these middle-school aged photos of Trayvon.
