Muggers Honor Trayvon Martin’s Legacy with Racist Muggings

With all the calls to honor Trayvon Martin’s legacy with boycotts of Florida, I think racist muggers like these are honoring Trayvon Martin’s legacy in the way that he would have truly wanted.

Police say three black men beat and robbed a white man in Washington, D.C. early Saturday morning yelling, “This is for Trayvon Martin.”

Who can blame them? They were just doing what Attorney General Holder was doing, but without the press conferences.

The attack is being investigated as a hate crime, The Washington Post reported.

Police told the Post the three men approached the victim from behind while he was walking in the city’s Adams Morgan neighborhood at 1:26 a.m. Saturday.

Two of the attackers threw the victim to the ground and kicked him, before all three took his iPhone and wallet and fled.

The victim suffered minor injuries but declined treatment at the scene, CNN reported. No arrests have been made.

As Black Skin Privilege documented, there have been a chain of these “Justice for Trayvon” attacks.

The racialization of the case led to actual racial attacks, as documented in David Horowitz and John Perazzo’s Black Skin Privilege.

“In the two months following Trayvon Martin’s death, black assailants carried out at least 14 fourteen known attacks against white victims with the idea of “avenging” the fallen youth. In East Toledo, six juveniles beat a 78-year-old white man, shouting: “This is for Trayvon … Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man]!” In Gainesville, five blacks shouting “Trayvon!” beat a 27-year-old white man, leaving his face permanently disfigured.”

Since the verdict there have been attacks on white people and Hispanics as well. Somewhere, I’m sure Trayvon is smiling up at them.

    How do we know this incident was truly in memory of Trayvon Martin? Because they stole his i-Phone and wallet after they rolled him.

    Might as well make all that In Memoriam stuff pay off while we’re at it, eh? Doing well by doing good…

    Let’s see here.

    Thanks to the agitation of “black community leaders” (i.e., community activists like Sharpton and even Obama, who held the … uhh … “job” of community activist prior to his political career) – - – the Trayvon case went from being an uncharged incident, to a charged and prosecuted crime, to an acquital, to continuing calls for another crime to be charged and another prosecution (persecution?) to be conducted at the federal level.

    The original report might have been in the local pages of some Florida newspaper, but very soon was kicked onto the front page of all the national broadsheets – - – and stayed there, almost every day, for over 6 months.

    As for THIS incident, it is on the local page of the Washington Post. Not even on page A-2 or A-3 (not that page placement matters much for the digital editions, but still, you get my point).

    It of course made the Washington Times, and Forbes, and even the Puff-Ho.

    But you know the story isn’t really going to have any legs, right?

    And you know that “civil rights” (federal) charges or “hate crime” (state add-on) charges will NEVER be brought, right?

    And you know that neither Obama or Holder will ever mention it at any time – - – and especially, you’ll never hear Obama saying, “The perps could’ve been my sons, or even me!”

    What happens when white and brown people start fighting back? Will we be labeled as racists for protecting ourselves? Will we be arrested and prosecuted for hate crimes for defending ourselves?

    • CowboyUp

      That’s obviously the general idea. It’s racist to defend oneself if the perp is black and you’re not. It’s not about civil rights and equality anymore, it’s about privilege and payback.

  • ReyR

    Those were ritualistic muggings and honor robbery. After centuries of oppression, the victims of the merciless welfare system are entitled to at least this much. And the majority folks need to remember that this is just another contribution in the endless process of cultural enrichment.

      Blacks can’t commit violence-related crimes against white people. Blacks are the oppressed and when they are violent against the oppressor, it’s no more than an expression of the righteously indignant against the unrelenting oppressor. It’s like Stand Your Ground or Self-Defense.

  • Filldaddy

    So that’s why they want to do away with “Stand your ground” and take guns away. So roving packs of criminals can do as they wish (hell, we already have roving packs of criminals in congress.)

  • Drakken

    Just wait until those shouting Tray Vons name while kicking the bloody bejeus out of the white victim, gets the surprise of their lives when the white victim pulls out the ole equalizer and leaves them dead and bleeding on the sidewalk. Then watch as the race grievance industry goes berserk.

      And George Zimmerman and Benhard Goetz to cheer for the gun-toting non-black side.

  • Royce Lerwick

    Trayvon’s death had nothing to do with racism. The trial had nothing to do with racism. Nothing to do with guns, or “stand your ground.” Before anyone knew what was going on at all, the Martinista’s had invented a big ugly, white racism boogie man out hunting down little Trayvon, chasing him down the street with a gun. That was all a lie and it all fell apart in the courtroom. In fact, it never made it into the courtroom, because liberal reactionaries and “the black community” are all too eager to believe in the boogey man out in the streets, but sitting calmly looking at the evidence it’s not so easy to pretend you can still see him in the actual casework of the Zimmerman trial. The New Black Panthers put a hit out on Zimmerman before anyone even knew he wasn’t “white.” Spike Lee Tweated what he thought was his address and told everyone to go get him. All across the nation roving bands of little Trayvons have been beating, mugging, wilding, and “ass whooping” Whitey shouting, “That’s for Trayvon!” as they run away giggling. But that’s nothing, the “wilding” and “flash mob” violence has been going on for two decades now. Long before Trayvon, long after. Sure, there are plenty of ignorant crackers to rag on because they run their fool mouths off. But so far, they aren’t out there cruising black neighborhoods in the back of pickup trucks with shotguns and baseball bats. As far as most Trayvon Martin worshippers are concerned apparently, Whitey deserves an occasional beat-down for 400 years of slavery, and Whitey should just take it and shut up. And they simply refused to accept the fact that Trayvon Martin, as Charles Barkley put it, “flipped a switch.” Trayvon Martin was a 6′ 2″ 160lb very athletic young man with an MMA/streetfighting hobby. There never was a little baby Trayvon, and there never was a big bad white racist baby killer named George Zimmerman. That was something Rachel Jeantel and Sybrina Fulton made up to get attention and make money. Zimmerman poked his nose in Trayvon’s direction, not smart, not polite, but legal, and Trayvon didn’t like that, broke his nose, beat the hell out of him, and got shot for his trouble. “Nigga Moments” in the words of Boondocks, can be fatal. Trayvon Martin may have not been on trial, but had he lived he certainly would have been. https://roycelerwick.wordpress.com
