Posted on 07/15/2013 10:13:30 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Responding to the verdict reached this weekend in the case of the State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman, The Black Women's Agenda, Inc. (BWA) announced its intention to advocate for the development of "a uniform, national understanding of laws associated with vigilante conduct, the concept of stand your ground and gun violence."
In a statement released today from the organization's headquarters, Gwainevere Hess, President of The Black Women's Agenda, said: "African-American mothers, grandmothers and women of color across the U.S. shared the anguish of Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, and our hearts sank a little deeper with the reading of this weekend's verdict in the State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman. However, being depressed or angry by the judicial system does not address the larger issues facing our nation.
"The death of Trayvon Martin and subsequent acquittal of his assailant should be a catalyst for us to collectively focus on the roots of this tragedy and develop solutions for preventing such incidents in the future. Mothers of color should not have to grasp for words to explain to our sons how the verdict in the Zimmerman case uniquely impacts them, or to prepare our children to deal with the unfortunate reality of racial profiling and people who would take the law into their own hands.
"The State of Florida vs. Zimmerman is one case. Even if a violation of civil rights case is brought to fruition on a federal level, it will seek justice in this one case, this one time. The Black Women's Agenda, Inc. is advocating for a positive, actionable response to counter the visceral ill-omen feelings of hope deferred prompted by the Zimmerman verdict. We call for the development of a uniform, national understanding of laws associated with vigilante conduct, the concept of stand your ground and gun violence. This much we owe to Trayvon's memory, our country, God, and ourselves."
The Black Women's Agenda is a national non-profit organization that generates awareness and support for issues affecting Black women worldwide. It is comprised of 19 collaborating women's organizations sororities, civic, service, and faith-based representing millions of women nationally and worldwide.

The march of the race pimps continues to ramp up.
Probably George Soros.
“Gwainevere.” I even checked to make sure you hadn’t made a typso in the header.
Maybe the black women’s agenda should be giving their children normal-people names, instead of alphabet-scramble.

White people are funding these groups with all the money they send to Washington DC in the form of taxes.
BWA ha ha!
What they need to do is learn to keep their knees together. Barring that, take responsibilty for your offspring and raise them in a heterosexual two-parent home within the bounds of marriage.

Go read them, you bunch of arrogant, ignorant hypocrites.
They might start by teaching youngsters not to do drugs and not to VIOLENTLY ATTACK other people. I fear this is a direct failure of the culture he was raised in.
What this country needs is more vigilantes, not less.
If there were a few more George Zimmermans in your neighborhoods, then your people would be a lot safer.
Did you ever read anything about the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood in NYC prior to the 1960s? Even well-organized crime organizations eschewed drug dealing to youths. Occasionally, someone would try. Occasionally, they would end up decorating a lamp post. Back then, street gangs fought with fists, rocks and, occasionally, switchblades.
A lot fewer of your people as well as others ended up dead in the crossfire.
Maybe if you raised these kids with daddies, ladies, then they wouldn’t be dying in droves.
The left really hates the stand your ground laws, looks like Saint Trayvon is their tool for getting them nullified either by the courts or crooked politicians.
Women having sex with men whom they never intend to marry?
More importantly, how many people besides Gwainevere Hess actually belong to this Black Womens’ Agenda, Inc.?
This is about money, money mo’ money, period. Get on the ‘reparations’ docket, get in line, get yo’ money from the gubmint!
Tell us how many members, when you incorporated, and who ALL the principal parties GWAINwhatever (learn to spell for God’s sake woman!)
The left really hates the individual defending himself from thugs,
because the left identifies with thuggery.
The White Man's Agenda, LLC (MWA) is hereby announcing it's intention for the Black Women's Agenda to understand that:
(1) Zimmerman was acting as a concerned citizen not as a vigilante; and
(2) Stand Your Ground had nothing to do with the trial.
The White Man's Agenda also wants to know why this is the first time the Black Women's Agenda has gone public concerning gun violence, especially considering the staggering number of young black men killed by other young black men with guns.
“We call for the development of a uniform, national understanding of laws associated with vigilante conduct, the concept of stand your ground and gun violence.”
Ok, here is your “uniform national understanding”: It is legal, in all 50 states, to defend yourself with lethal force against someone who physically attacks you, if you feel that your life is threatened.
ps... that applies no matter what the race of the attacker is, how cute they are in a hoodie, or if they have a bag of skittles in their pocket.
peel the onion....
You ought to see the list of names my hubby has to bring home to practice so he can announce at graduation. Frustrates him to no end. Says if he gets names wrong he catches hell.
Maybe I missed it, but I don’t recall stand your ground ever being a part of the trial. Wasn’t it argued as purely self defense?
Here’s an idea; don’t attack other people and your chances of getting shot decline a great deal.
All I know is that if someone had broken my nose and was bashing my head into the pavement, I would shoot, too.
good grief, imagine what outrage there would have been if he wasn’t a huge, mma-trained fighter, pot smoking, burglar thief, gangsta signing, racist thug punk.
they are pissed he was profiled correctly and lost the fight he started.
Obviously, she’s a descendant of a tryst between the noble Sir Gawain and Queen Guenevere... G’wain-evere!
The community which has the biggest problems is the black community and yet instead of trying to clean their yards up, raise their sons and daughters with manners, and respect.
To actually tell their kids to do good at school, to work hard, to stop taking welfare they instead focus on an Hispanic who shot a black who was defending themselves.
black on black, ah no much to see there move on, the crime is by us blacks but wait we have a black shot and killed ,OK lets play victim and get laws changed and I wonder who is making money on these dopes again
I didn’t follow the trial closely enough to know, but, I do know that there had been a rash of robberies in the complex perpetrated by black men, so can someone please explain to me what Trayvon was doing there in the first place?
If I were him, I’d just mispronounce them on purpose. Then, if the parents got offended, I could point out that it’s their own fault for making up names that only they know how to pronounce.
Black Woman’s Agenda.
I had to read the source line to see if this is satire.
"If we robbin, rapin, or killin you, doan-choo-be tryin to stop us." "We just be helpin Obammy distribute yo wealth."
The Department of Justice.
He was supposedly going to his mom’s house after getting kicked out of his dads, or some such combination.
They found burglary tools in the bushes near where he was found.
As would most of us . . . and I don’t even think most of us would wait until the punk reached for our firearm.
That would then result in the chill’ens rebelling from their overbearing parent, because why shouldn’t they be able to hit whatever people they want without fear of being told no, or hit back in retaliation?
Well, it just strikes me that the Media have gone overboard to paint Zimmerman as some kind of monster while ignoring any real effort to characterize Martin as something other than an innocent, even saintly, young boy. What I have surmised from other posts is that he (1) was staying with his Dad’s girlfriend, who lived near there, (2) that he was not walking on the sidewalk but near the windows of apartments, (3) that one burglary tool may have been found in the bushes near there (it is unclear), that (4) he was wearing hoodie and was out in the rain, and that (5) he had a record of stealing in his background, and also that (6) he was, at the time, suspended from school where his lived, which was 200 miles away. Anyone with to add or clarify?
So Black Women, make it your Agenda to tell your sons not to jump creepy-ass crackers and they will be ok.
Definately soros et al. They dream of a race war, it’s in every book ever written about these freaks and their methods.
The blacks for them are truly the useful idiots.
I will listen to these various black groups, WHEN they decided to hold their own accountable for all the needless shootings that happen every single freakin day in Chicago, and elsewhere.
I am sick of whites being blamed! This mantra is getting so old and worn, and the newly added white guilt crap has to be stopped in it’s tracks. Jeez these people truly are single minded.
To your point, this is from the home page of the Chicago Sun Times:
“Maybe I missed it, but I dont recall stand your ground ever being a part of the trial. Wasnt it argued as purely self defense?”
It wasn’t which is why I said what I said, the left is making an issue out of something that isn’t even part of the Zimmerman trail which just goes to show how much they hate stand your ground laws.
I sometimes read the Honor Roll lists in the local paper just to sigh over the names. By the time you get to the “B” list, there’s plenty of alphabet-scramble. We have a lot of Eastern European immigrants, too, and those are jaw-crackers.
I missed that in all the story books!
Thanks for the link, I no longer buy any Chicago papers, they are full of lefty rants.
Lovely isn’t it? I imagine tonight could be good too, what with the soaring heat and the protests going on - add in dumb Daley tossing his hat in for Governor and yapping about TM...what a sad situation.
Food for thought.
Perhaps we should keep a body count from the day of the acquittal.
No offense, but you can’t possibly “share in the anguish” of a parent whose son or daughter has died. Not even Sybrina’s presumed anguish, who has made a pastime of profiting from her son’s death.
You know, I was thinking exactly the same thing!
