Trayvon Martin's mother to lead racial profiling discussion at University of Utah
The Orlando Sentinel ^ | January 9, 2014 | Matt Mauney

Posted on 01/10/2014 1:17:25 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The mother of Trayvon Martin will participate in a University of Utah public discussion on Jan. 16 during a weeklong celebration of Martin Luther King Jr., KTVX-TV reports.

Sybrina Fulton is scheduled to speak at the university's Union Ballroom for the 30th annual Celebration of the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

This year's theme is "Beneath the Hoodie: A Look at Racial Profiling in America."

Fulton's son, a 17-year-old black Miami high-school student, was fatally shot in February 2012 by George Zimmerman. A jury in Seminole County acquitted Zimmerman in July of murder.

The case stirred a national debate on issues of self-defense, racial justice, gun control and profiling....

A) What is the percentage of blacks in Utah? (B) Who is paying her, and how much? (C) When did a court determine that George Zimmerman "racially profiled" the late Trayvon Martin? (D) If you live in Utah, I'm guessing your tax dollars went to flying her & her entourage in, feeding, transporting & lodging them and a nice stipend besides. How do you feel about that?

Zimmerman “profiled” Trayvon as a dangerous, potentially violent criminal.

He was correct.

Pray for George Zimmerman. I do believe the man suffers from this incident. PTSD.

Don’t you remember the major news media did it for him when they creatively edited the 911 tapes to create their own lie about what happened. I hope GZ becomes the major stock holder out of that one.

I live in UT. This is disgusting. They wouldn’t even give this woman half a look in any other circumstance.

Is she going to show photos of the 17 year old w gold teeth while flashing gangster signs, or only display a picture of saint skittles as a 9 year old?

Why does profiling happen?

Because it’s generally correct based on known behavioral tendencies of people who look a certain way.

so suppose you arrive to a bad part of town and have to park your car on the street.

Next to one parking spot there are a dozen young black guys. One block down, there’s a group of Jewish men wearing their skull hats standing there.

Which parking spot do you stop at (assuming all other factors are the same)?

Add MLK to that picture and make it a quartet. Both the great President Ronald Reagan and the fine Senator Jesse Helms (a favorite of Ted Cruz) knew the truth behind the St. Martin myth. J. Edgar Hoover also had the goods in that fraud as well. Someday the records will be unsealed and the world will know the reality about "Reverend" "Doctor" King.

As we do each year, my next door neighbor and I will be flying our Dixie flags on January 20 to annoy the leftist (originally from Nashua, NH as he never lets us forget) across the street. I'll give him credit though -- he's taken that stupid COEXIST bumper sticker off his car, so he's possibly on the way to shedding his Yankee leftism.

Why aren’t we hearing about a civil case brought against Zimmerman? Is it because a lot more about Trayvon’s history and character would come out? And what about Holder’s persecution? What ever became of that?
Ask her what “cracker” means, as used by her son.

Maybe he removed the “Coexist” sticker because it had that “hateful” Christian cross on it. And liberals don’t really want to co-exist with you freedom-loving flag-waving traditional values types.

It’s really a shame that she never put as much energy into raising her son as she has into celebrating his death. But then, there’s no short term monetary profit in simply raising children to be productive citizens.

I’ve heard MLK was a commie at heart but he wasn’t Sharpton or Jackson. Those 2 are in a class all their own.

someone should bring up the “Knockout Game” and the profiling of Whites and Jews by black youths.

Holder the Ag won’t call it a hate crime. Some people have died from being knocked out others have had brain and hearing damage.

I think he may actually be coming around after 15 years of living here in God's country (Texas). His daughter is high school cheerleader and goes to a solidly Conservative Christian church. Unlike his clipped New England accent, she speaks with a soft, pleasant Southwestern twang. Thanks to her persuasion, his house now has an American and Texas flag flying by the porch. A few months ago, he was at a high school football game (that alone speaks volumes), he said that he voted for Ted Cruz in the general election because he admired his intellect. Although he still moans about how much better New England is compared to Texas, there's evidence of some headway being made. If his daughter can get him going to church on a regular basis, that died-in-the-wool Yankee may just become a Conservative.

When I was a young college kid from the “more ignorant” parts of the country, I had to go through New York and to do so, I had to catch a cab to get from one bus station to the other to catch my final bus for college. I always tried to get a cab that was driven by an Orthodox Jew, because they were easily recognizable and I figured a person who is serious about worshiping God was not going to cheat or rob me. So yeah, I did racial profiling big time.

The MSM profiled G. Zimmerman as a ‘white’ Hispanic. The first one ever.

(Well, there's a few states -- Utah being one of them -- where there's a sense of a racist hangover...one which many Utahns now regret...and I think some of them feel that by attempting to be "ultra sensitive" to the plight of blacks, that this could somehow...coupled with who knows what...somehow move past their historical baggage...ain't gonna work...and a move in the wrong direction, anyway)

Will anyone ask her about the fact that there had been several recent break-ins in the area, perpetrated by young black men? George Zimmerman was simply relying on those FACTS, and not any personal animus or racial prejudice, when he called in his suspicions about Trayvon.

Maybe someone else will ask her what she thinks might have happened if Trayvon had simply moved on, rather than confronting Zimmerman. But I'm assuming no one will have the cojones to ask THOSE tough questions.

Racial Justice? Justice was served. Trayvon was trying to murder a man and the jury found Zimmerman innocent.
