Trayvon Martin rallies in Seattle, around country

SEATTLE — A week ago Saturday, a Florida jury decided George Zimmerman acted in self defense when he shot and killed 17-year old Trayvon Martin.

Still outraged at that decision, Saturday thousands of people rallied around the county, and in Seattle.

trayvon“We want to let the community know that even though this tragedy happened we can stop it,” said Lecia Murphy, who joined more than 100 protestors in Seattle, outside the U.S. District Courthouse. “Let our voices so he didn’t die in vain.”

During the rallies across the country, people called for federal charges against Zimmerman.

In New York, Martin’s mother spoke to the crowds.

“Today it was my son, tomorrow it might be yours,” said Sybrina Fulton.

    If you jump someone, taking them to the ground and then start beating them in the face and head, you are likely to be shot. The media made this to be a race issue.

    Anyone who pretends their last name is "Z" automatically loses my respect–right along with anyone who plays with their balls while we talk, anyone who's "artistic expression" consists of rhythmic grunting in rhyming slang, anyone who adds the term "izzle" to anything, and people who fake a lot of gravity in their meaning in order to distract from how ridiculous and insincere they are. Cover your ass. Learn to read. Stop talking like you're screaming a poem with a sock in your mouth. DEFINITELY quit playing with your genitals while talking to people and pretending it's not just plain perverted–especially when CHILDREN are around. Most of all, stop yelling "RATHITHT" every time a white person objects to your primate behavior–it's not racism. It's zoology. If you act like a primate, you will be caged like one. Nothing could be more insulting to your race than considering it racism when people object to you behaving identically to a primate. Pull up your pants and put your genitals away–especially when kids are watching, or get used to being treated like a perverted animal needing a cage.

    At least a dozen times in the last few months, when I see a black man with his hand down his pants and stroking himself while carrying on a conversation, I've casually steered the conversation to how racists consider black men hypersexual. Not ONCE have any of them noticed the irony that they are talking to a stranger in public about the racism of considering black men hypersexual–while stroking their genitals. Is there any way to interpret that in a positive way?
