“I Am Trayvon” really means that no one is Trayvon. That he no longer exists except as a symbol. That there is no Trayvon Martin, only an idea of him that doesn’t have anything to do with the real life teenager we can catch glimpses of through his Twitter feed. Trayvon Martin has been buried and brought back as a Frankenstein’s monster of racial anxieties, grievance and hate-based electioneering.

Martin doesn’t matter to any of the people crying out his name or wearing it on buttons and t-shirts. In life he was just another angry teenager. In death he’s a way for them to make money, gain power and unleash their anger.

Whoever he was in life, in death Trayvon Martin has become a commodity. A way to sell t-shirts, hoodies and political candidates. And most of all a way to sell racism, to spread hate and fear for the benefit of the profiteers of bigotry, men like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Barack Obama who have made a career of organizing communities along racial grounds.

The individuals named Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman are irrelevant in that bigger picture, they have become characters in a story that the media is telling us, a story that the White House needs told in order to organize yet another part of its base, to get them angry, bring them out into the streets and rebuild the political organization that won the 2008 election.

Dragging Trayvon Martin’s body around like a lawn sign is ugly, but the seventeen year old football player is gone. In his place is a martyr whose cheerful face looks out at us from outdated and heavily photoshopped pictures which only emphasize the unreality of his transformation from teenager to racist symbol. From a human being to a commodity being traded and sold at rallies, his name bellowed through microphones and a hoodie distributed through Obama’s campaign site.

It’s no longer about what happened on February 26th, but about what will happen on November 6th. For those white and black people who thought that voting along racial lines in 2008 had ended racism, this case is meant to serve notice that we are still an eternally racist country and that we must search our souls, confess our sins and vote the Trayvon Martin 2012 ticket or his nearest lookalike.

Until then we can solace ourselves with a 95 dollar hoodie stating the clarity of our vagueness to one and all. We can stop by the “Justice: In Memory of Trayvon Martin” event at Bentley’s Lingerie Lounge in Greensboro, North Carolina. Free admission is being offered to anyone who shows up with a bag of skittles. Or stop by Obama’s next 5,000 dollar a plate fundraiser, because Hope and Change, like Alexander Wang hoodies, don’t come cheap.

What is cheap though is the exploitation of Trayvon Martin for political purposes. Martin’s mother can trademark a few choice phrases, but how do you trademark a narrative, how do you copyright the dismemberment of a teenager into merchandising opportunities, to bags of skittle and hoodies, to a reelection campaign for a failed politician running on racism while running away from his record.

    As usual, US public and politics hype behind symbols while evading the basic problems.

    In this case: Vigilantes with concealed weapons under protection of an inconsistent "stand your ground" law that apparently protects the armed assailant, be he black, white or yellow, Christian, Jew or Muslim.

    Obama obviously prefers to have this affair run under the race card rather than taking on NRA sponsored lunatic legislation in an election run up.

    • U Obama heckler

      Wrong is wrong no matter the color. There is no reason that a person who murders someone should be walking free when he has been identified. Evidence is readily available that skews the antagonist to be Zimmerman. Stop using this as an excuse to bad mouth Obama. The comments he made had nothing to do with race nor did he mention any color.

      • http://apollospaeks.blogtownhall.com/ ApolloSpeaks

        What is this readily available evidence that you're talking about? The Sanford police chief couldn't find it; local prosecuters couldn't find it, the state attorney (who removed himself from the case) couldn't find it. And so far the special prosecuter hasn't found it. What do you know that they don't?

        • kentatwater

          The readily available evidence that Zimmerman is guilty of murder is 1) he has a lighter skin tone than his attacker, 2) he was carrying his weapon legally, and 3) he has a "Jewish-sounding" name. Of course, those clamoring for Zimmerman's arrest will never admit that this is really what is going through their minds.

          It's fun to watch the racialist ideologues go after each other, though, isn't it? ;)

        • mrbean

          Chimpout Holder AG called the state AG and got the AG to take it out of the local police hands and sealed the police report. The state now has appointed a registered Democrat Special Prosecuter who controls the police report and all evidence, police reports, medical reports, incuding Trayvon's stolen diamond rings and burgarly tools and requested a secret grand jury that would indict a ham sandwich. And the MSM will stir up jungle bunny lynch mobs so a guy who defended himself against a chimpout thug gets jail so the Black Pantywaisters are happy.

      • jacob

        I take offense to what you say…
        It is the second time OBAMA puts his trillion in when it has to do with blacks, like when he got
        his foot in mouth, lambasting the Cambridge, Mass. police Dept. unaware of the full story, IN
        WHICH HIS "PROFESSOR" WAS TOTALLY AND ABSOLUTELY WRONG and having to
        backpedal in the most shameful way.
        Once again, he jumped into this regretfully incident calling it a " national disgrace"….
        But why isn't this qualification extensive to the three Louisiana whites killed by black hoodlums
        or the white boy set on fire by two black bullies ???
        Is this "National Disgrace" qualification shamelessly selective when it happens to whites
        at the hands of blacks or is it fair retribution for the "centuries of slavery" and all that garbage
        white people feel guilty of, befitting if all of their ancestors were slave owners…
        And to think that there are people who still believe in his "CHANGE" and his "UNIFYING" people
        GIVE ME A BREAK…! ! !

          Facts just confuse the talking points, so they ignore them.

      • Zionista

        We don't need excuses to "bad mouth" obama – his dismal record speaks for itself – he's a failure as a president. The jerks who voted for him now know -no more affirmative action presidents.

        • penny lane

          The only thing bugging you about Obama is that he doesn't unconditionally dance to the tune of the Likud Zionist Lobby. If you want a dismal record, go to GW Bush, the father of the economic desaster and the godfather of all stupid, contraproductive wars the Us is now engaged in.

          • Sage on the Stage

            Obama very recently gave military aid to Egypt, a country now run by Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, both dedicated to Israel's destruction. THAT is not dancing "to the tune of the Likud Zionist Lobby." Then you say, "Let's blame Bush." Bush has been out of office for more than three(3) years now.(Or don't you know that?) No…it is OBAMA that has kept the ME in a constant state of upheaval; it is OBAMA that has facilitated the Muslim Brotherhood take-over in Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia; it is OBAMA that has failed to take any steps towards stopping Iran from getting a nuclear bomb; it is OBAMA that has failed to defend the Suez canal; it is OBAMA that has allowed U.S. drone technology to fall into the hands of Iran; it is OBAMA that has spent the U.S. into the poorhouse….and gutted the American military. And by the way, "desaster" is spelled "disaster," and the word is "counterproductive."

          • Zionista

            only a stupid Jew hater like you would bring Israel into a topic that has nothing to do with Israel. obama got himself into the trayvon thing because he can't help himself – it's what narcissists do. Where is the marxist in chief when blacks are gunned down in cold blood by other blacks – oh yeah, he's busy with his basketball brackets or sucking up to russia,

          • johnnywoods

            Wow! You would think that the "Likud Zionist Lobby" would have a little stronger hand on this situation by covering up their "dismal record". If they are soooooo powerful and influential they surely are not using that power very well. Thank you "penny lane" for the "heads up".

    • Not_always_Right

      So you are actually going to write the correct story. First of all, being a part of "neighborhood watch" is not the same as being a vigilante and Zimmerman did have a permit for concealed carry. If you know all the facts fine but until then I suggest that you practice your brand of psychiatry in your backyard.

      • joejackson

        lets get real………….this zimmermann guy is a looser and a whimp, an coward hideing behind his gun, a 27 year old who never grew playing captain america. these are the folks who keep totalitarian system running by spying on their fellow coutrymenn and reporting every move to the authorities.

        • kentatwater

          The real losers are those who call their betters, "loosers."

          Government schools have failed you miserably but you'll make a good pet.

        • crackerjack

          Germans have a term for this nature of personality." Der Blockwart". The blockwarden patrolled and controlled his neighbourhood during Faschism and Communism and reported to the authorities. This type of personality excelled in East European Communist states and still excels in China, Syria, Iran etc.

    • Wyatt Trash

      Molon Labe

  • Your a closet racist

    The comment that Trayvon was "just another angry teenager" is unfounded and frankly reveals your true attitude about the situation as a whole. Other comments and your tone make it pretty clear that you have no empathy for the situation and all and are just writing about it because you could fit it into your blog.

    • kentatwater

      1) Who are you quoting with "just another angry teenager?"
      2) How is "just another angry teenager" racist?
      3) Is it really a lack of empathy, or just a lack of empathy that jibes with your own personal bigotries?
      4) It's "you're," not "your."

    • mrbean

    TRAY MARTIN WAS A MODEL TEENAGER

    He was a regular Boy Scout, an all American kid. With his gold capped teeth, multiple tatoos, pot smoking and lawless school friends who ransacked a Miami Walgreens last week Tray Martin was a model teenager for today's black youth.

    Click my name to read more on this subject.

    • FlippinCrazy

      I'm not supporting their behavior but there are plenty of nasty white kids around. I know there were white kids at the post-Kentucky basketball victory trashing the other night.

      • kentatwater

        Now who's making it "about race?" ApolloSpeaks was … uh … speaking about Trayvon specifically, and you counter with "nasty white kids."

      • http://apollospaeks.blogtownhall.com/ ApolloSpeaks

        White teenagers (male and female) were among the pro-Trayvon hooligans that stormed the North Miami Walgreens last week. What Walgreens had to do with Trayvon's death I'll never know. But this could have been a warning shot of much rioting to come if the bloodthirsty lynch Zimmerman mob doesn't get its pound of flesh.

        • Rifleman

          If they can't get the one they want, a lynch mob sometimes grabs one or more substitutes to kill.

      • Rifleman

        Yea, and I'm just as hard on the nasty white kids. It's the nastiness that matters, not the physical attributes of the nasty.

        • Chiggles

          Kids are nasty, peroiod. I hate kids.

      • Wyatt Trash

        Yes, there were. And if a Detroit or Chicago team had won, you'd be hearing of deaths not just property destruction.

    • capt. kong

      and where exactly is the difference between todays black youth and todays white youth ?

      • cjk

        I'd say EXACTLY about 100 times more likely to murder someone?

  • Amused

    ….and that makes him worthy of being shot to death by an overzealous " block watch captain " ? Hmmmm. since when does pot smoking , having gold capped teeth or having tatoos put one at liability to be shot dead ? Your juvenile /racist sarcasm nor withstanding . Yea this degenerated into a circus , with racists like Jackson and Sharpton taking full advantage to exploit the situation , and of course racists like you ApolloSpeaks , who from the peanut gallery of closet racists ,makes such obviously RACIST remarks . The charge of racism is fully warranted , if not on the part of Zimmerman , but obviously on the part of people like you , for one need look only on any of the late Teabagger Breibart's Big Government et al blogs , where the racist remarks are in full bloom , unashamed as they now feel fully justified in spewing their poorly disguised racism .The Teabaggers ARE and HAVE been racists from the getgo . Regardless of the outcome of this tragic event , that is a TRUTH which will stand .Your remarks are proof of this . And yes a "GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY " to attack the black President that you've hated since day one . Pathetic .

    • kentatwater

      So much fail. It's not worth my time to address every one, but there are a few gems…

      The comments about the gold-capped teeth, tattoos, and pot smoking are all about voluntary behaviors that Trayvon engaged in. They were not inevitable mistakes he made due to his genetic background. If anyone here is a racist, it is you, for conflating the two.

      Your chronic angry use of the "tea****er" term suggests that you have not come to terms with your own sexuality. It has been noted by others, that left wing wackos frequently exhibit an unhealthy obsession with male genitalia, and you are their king. (Oh, sorry, is the appropriate term "queen?")

      • Amused

        I suggest a visit to any of the late TEABAGGER BREIBART'S Blogs . Where you will see the N word routinely used , disguised with intentional mispelling to fool the auto censors , yetr left up by the site administrators .

        • Amused

          And ..uh ..kentwater , I recommend some professional coiunseling , since you see "sexual connotation " , and obsessive interest in "male genitalia " where it simply does not exist. Poor sick little boy .

          • kentatwater

            Hey, I'm not the one who habitually uses a term denoting a deviant sexual act popular among you and your friends. Stop blaming the victim.

          • Amused

            Babbling again kentwater ? whatever deviant sexual acts permeate your thinking , don't be so foolish as to attempt to transfer them to someone else . They are the machinations of your own warped character .Not surprising though , racism and bigotry , your two most obvious character faults , are indicative of deeper darker problems of character .

          • Zionista

            hey putz, Breitbart offered $100,000 to anyone with proof of racism at a Tea PArty event. So far, nobody has collected. That's because most leftists are liars.

          • Amused

            No , that's because Breitbart was an out and out liar , and wouldn't pay off anyway once proven wrong . You're just another Breitbart DUPE/SYCOPHANT . Go visit any of his blogs dimbulb , they're too stupid over there to erase even the most egregious of racial slurs .

        • kentatwater

          Yes, Mobys abound. It's just one of the strategies that lefties use, craven little ants that they are.

    • http://apollospaeks.blogtownhall.com/ ApolloSpeaks

      Overzealous watch captian? Are you aware that Twin Lakes has been victimized by multiple burgleries and break ins over the last few years? And that Trayvan wasn't just walking home from 711 that night, he had stopped and was suspiciously looking at the homes then ran away when he saw Zimmerman watching him? Listen to the police dispatcher recordings. Zimmerman showed himself to be a scrupulous and responsible watch captain citing all of Trayvan's suspicious movements. The police dispatcher agreeing with Zimmerman's suspicions sent a policeman to the scene.

  • Amused

    So the media , who's only concern here is RATINGS , fuels the racists on BOTH sides , so much so that the issue now has legs of it's own , and like roaches that come out when the lights are off , now stand exposed when the lights are switched on . Carry on hypocritical fools .You decieve no one .There is only ONE thing that is guaranteed …… you will reap what you sow .

    • kentatwater

      Fail. Calling out the Sharptons and Jesses and Farrakhans as racists, is not itself racist…it's just the truth.

      • Amused

        Yup , just as it is truth in calling out Apollo speaks , and weak pathetic defense of his remarks by numbskulls like you .

        • kentatwater

          Not a defense, but an explanation, which appeared to be warranted since teab***ging-obsessed deviants such as yourself were having comprehension problems.

          • Amused

            I name TEABAGGERS for what they are , narrowminded , lieing racists . And what better example of this than their pos leader -Breibart . PERIOD . Dont like it ? Tough shiiit .
            Why dont you look up Breibarts dog on a leash O'Keefe , who is a true refelection of what Breitbart and the TEABAGGERS are all about .

          • johnnywoods

            Hey Idiot, Have you ever been to a "Tea Party Rally"? From what you keep saying it is obvious that you have not. BTW you are not "amusing".

  • MethanP

    This event took place more than one month ago. While I happen to believe, based on my current information, that Zimmerman should be charged, that is not the point. It seems very clear to me that the usual suspects, (Jackson, Sharpton et al) are using this event to 1) Rebuild their sagging power base. 2) Aid the left wing agenda. And 3) Most importantly, distract a complicit media from concentrating on the growing public failures of the Obama administration. Notice how little attention is being payed to the SCOTUS Obamacare hearing. The Openmike gate. Romneys gains. Nope. It's clear to me at least. When you're losing, change the subject.

    • wyatt trash

      Just shoring up the base of the Democratic party. Got to do something to take their minds off $4.00 gas now that the Mega Millions has been won.

    • fiddler

      I have to say you have hit the nail on the head. Very perceptive. I recall when the late Peter Jennings was known to have spoken of "Managing the news".

      Although it has been alluded to lately in blogs, it needs to be repeated OFTEN that this is a media GAME. It really is; something like a shell game. "Under which 'cup' is the bad news about Obama, quick, the hand is quicker than the eye!"

      This is blatant electioneering in full view. Darn that alternative media! Break out the hoodies folks!

  • Amused

    • kentatwater

      Thank you for demonstrating personally, MethanP's point. The weak-minded constituency of the Hussein regime is so easily manipulated.

      • Amused

        From a mind like yours , I would take it as a compliment . I guess in your "meme soaked " mentality , thinking for yourself is considered weakminded , while the height of hypocrisy is on open display as you follow lock-step with fellow hypocrites . Wear your hat well kentwater , its about all your worth .

        • kentatwater

          It's not my fault you keep falling for the trap, every time leftist politicians set it. Stop lashing out at your intellectual betters, and try to improve yourself. I know, in your case it will be an extraordinary challenge, but do try. Why, perhaps in 5 years to a decade (that's 10 years) of hard work, you might be able to take the cork off the fork!

          • Amused

            very good kentwater , I see you've reached the zenith of your extremely limited intellect . you're a prime example of why teabaggers are irrelevant .

    • Zionista

      where's the narcissist in chief when so many blacks are viciously murdered by other blacks? It's strange how the value of black life is so worthless when taken by other blacks – sad really.

  • Amused

    • Zionista

      It seems black lives only have worth when taken by someone who isn't black. Look at the horrible statistics of black on black crime and the thousands of unborn blacks killed by abortion. The left is silent – pathetic hypocrites.

    • Rifleman

      So, after just a week or so of wall to wall hype by the left their narrative on this case is falling apart, so now it’s becoming a distraction.

      “…a flip-flopping , double talking political jellyfish , who's made so many "fruedian slips " against the workingman and middle-class that it is now pathetic …” – Not that I agree, but if all that’s a deal killer, what’s hussein doing in the WH?

  • Amused

    Oh yea , your concern is overwhelming . And we all KNOW that abortion remains exclusively in the domain of "those blacks " …LOL… riiiiight ….how pathetic a remark , especially if you consider that most doctors performing abortions [ btw on whites and blacks ] are white .

    • tagalog

      It's obvious that abortion has a racial tinge. One of its earliest proponents was Margaret Sanger, who advocated abortion in order to wipe out the "inferior" races, including American blacks.

      Notice the MSM didn't say BLACK YOUTH MOBS attacking white people just lile they did when the BLACK FLASH MOBS were robbing stores every night in almost every city in the US. MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There have been six mob attacks, in all, since February. Now, police are now wondering if an 8 o’clock curfew keeping anyone 17 and under from two downtown streets will stop the violence.

      Nicollet Mall is a destination for many. Outdoor patios where drinks and food are served are a draw not only to people who live here, but also tourist. Since February, when the sun goes down, later in the evening, mobs of teens take advantage of the darkness and attack. A video captured on 6th Street and Nicollet shows how the mob o fBLACK teens viciously attacks innocent WHITE people was on Youtube but has been convieniently removed.

        I'm white and I think you're as much an imbecile as mrbean is. You're also as much a bigot as David Duke is so please,spare me your complaints,Dennis X. They're falling on deaf ears.

    ABC News has re-digitized video of George Zimmerman taken shortly after Trayvon Martin's shooting.
    The video was unveiled as an exclusive this morning on "Good Morning America." ABC was the first news organization to show the original tape. Reporter Matt Gutman said the clearer video shows "what appear to be a pair of gashes or welts on George Zimmerman's head." Neighborhood Watch volunteer Zimmerman has said he shot 17-year-old Trayvon in self-defense. The video shows Zimmerman arriving at the Sanford Police Department within an hour after the shooting. Gutman said the video had been "clarified" by Forensic Protection Inc. Former FBI Special Agent Brad Garrett told ABC that the clearer video shows "marks on the back of Mr. Zimmerman's head."

    ABC earlier they ran this video 10 times daily – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmMSaVYAcRQ.

    Isn't it hilarious how all these Commies jump right on the capitalist gravy train at the first opportunity? I have to wonder if they intend to turn over all those profits for redistribution to their less industrious comrades.

    I have said it before that I don't think Zimmerman should have went after Martin. We still don't know if he did after being advised not to. But…charging "racial profiling" has gained so much momentum that I just want to point out a small fact. Zimmerman is not a cop and is ALLOWED to "profile" whomever he wants; just as any of us would do in our neighborhood when there are recent break-ins. We see a stranger, a young guy by himself walking around; he is immediately suspicious to us. Zimmerman profiled…so what. Only in some twisted Politically Correct World is this wrong. Now, when the facts are known and if it comes out that Zimmerman went after Martin AFTER being told not to, I’d have no problem with the filing of charges against him. For now, we all should let the system run its course.

    How about the logo "BHusseiNO" ?

  • Ghostwriter

    How about we all wait for the facts to come in before we judge? That would be a good idea instead of the needless racial idiocy people like Sharpton and mrbean.

  • BLJ

    Another sad example of the true stupidity of those who would vote for Obama. Martin's mother is a disgrace and should be ashamed of herself. I doubt she feels any shame though.

    This whole uproar is another smokescreen by Team Hussien Obama to draw attention away from his attempts to destroy the economy and turn America into his Marxist Islamic Republic. He take that hoodie and stick it where the sun don't shine.

    I never want to know the pain of losing a son/daughter. I could probably speak for everyone who have held their kids. _I don't know niether does anyone, really, know all of the details that transpired that night however I will do know this, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson nor Maxin Waters nor the New Black Panther Party give 2 cents about the plight of blacks in this country or any other. If they did:__
    Why don't the thousands of blacks in the streets right now making noise about this tragedy march and protest in front of the pimps, crackdealears and crackhouses in the neighborhood?_
    Why don't Al, Jesse, Maxine and the NBPP protest all of the gang violence?_
    Why don't these OUTRAGED people go and protest the knuckle headed entertainers that glamourize gang violence and immorality that's turning blacks into the disgrace of this country?
    Why don't they put bounties on the gang leaders and local thugs in their neighborhoods?

    • RoguePatriot6

      Why don't they protest the fact that those that were involved in "Fast and Furious" aren't behind bars?
      Why don't they protest some REAL GENOCIDE LIKE "PLANNED PARENTHOOD", instead of the fictional propagandist garbage that Hollywood makes up?

      No, instead they wait for an exploitable incident like this one, to EXPLOIT FOR VOTES!!!

      You don't belive me? Well here it is: A few nights ago in Tucson, some folks of this city held a hoodie vigil and were passing out Democratic ballots to those who participated. Can we get anymore insulting? It reminded me of a pack of wolves fighting over a dead carcass. Is their any level the lib/progs won't stoop to? Probably not.

      This is just an example of what liberal/progressives CHOOSE to get outraged over and CHOOSE to overlook (cont'd)

  • RoguePatriot6

    A good example is the slip of the tongue by Rush Limbaugh and the constant spew of profane insults thrown at conservative men and women. Liberals "SAY" they care about the treatment of women but the only ones worthy to be treated with respect and dignity in their eyes are, liberal ones or those promote their agenda. Should this be a shock? Of course not. We see the same hypocrisy when it comes to liberals and blacks. No one seemed outraged or angry at all from all of the racist insults hurled at Allen West and Herman Cain, but say something about Obama or Al Sharpton or any of the CBC gestapo and watch what happens. I guess only certain blacks are worthy enough to be treated with respect or honor. What a crock. What they really should say, is "We believe in equality, as long as you are on our side". Backs up my theory of "Liberalism=liberty and equality for only liberals".

    Lib/progs are so full of horse manure you could throw them in dirt and grow a garden.

  • RoguePatriot6

    Oh, I'm sorry I almost forgot, for those who are buying into this sea of BS, if you really think that white people are out to kill all of us, check out local news channels in LA, Baltimore, New York City, Detroit, Miami, Houston and tell me whose really killing black people besides black people. Brothers and sisters let's clean our own yard.

    • johnnywoods

      Well said Rogue.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    The event was cherry picked by the leftists for Obama's having another four year run of ruin. After two
    weeks searching for a killing and there it is a black youth and a white man and the black youth ends
    up dead, perfect for propaganda. The Sharpton and Jackson groups do their act and Obama reminds
    all black voters that he is the one who needs to be in the White House for them to get justice. One
    killing and how many hundreds that week of white victims by black killers and not a word. It just does
    not get any slimier than this. I feel for the family and know that law enforcement must go through the
    paces and be careful of how to treat this killing, if it is not prosecutable it should be explained, if there
    is grounds for prosecution, move forward and let a judge and jury follow the law……….Political theatre
    is what this is all about and that is a great disservice to all involved…………………..William

  • Amused

    Yea , and I'll bet they hired Zimmerman as "triggerman " to do in the sacrificial Martin . You're utter stupidy is really mind numbing Ward . And please save your crocodile tears , you "feel " for no one .

  • BS77

    Today some deranged individual shot and killed seven people in Oakland, and wounded more….some of whom might die. I wonder when Al Sharpton will arrive to make a statement. My guess he won't show….

  • greatj

    The blackmailers Alfraud Sharpton and Jesse Jackson need to get paid for their support and also rally the black vote for Obama in the president election in November.
