We Are All Trayvon Martins

The Trayvon Martin-Zimmerman trial is about more than the murder of a young black male. It’s about the VALUE (or lack of value) of  ALL BLACK LIFE.

It has already been confirmed HUNDREDS OF TIMES that ANY law enforcement officer — including a security transit guard (toy cop) — can murder an unarmed black person and either walk free OR serve a sentence so out of proportion to the loss of a life that it amounts to a slap on the wrist.

More Details about the Oscar Grant MURDER  (excerpted from various news sources)

Oscar Grant III was fatally shot by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle in Oakland, California, United States, in the early morning hours of New Year’s Day 2009.

Responding to reports of a fight on a crowded Bay Area Rapid Transit train returning from San Francisco, BART Police officers detained Oscar Grant and several other passengers on the platform at the Fruitvale BART Station. Officer Johannes Mehserle and another officer were restraining Grant, who was lying face down and allegedly resisting arrest.

Officer Mehserle stood and, according to witnesses, said: “Get back, I’m gonna tase him.”  Then Mehserle drew his gun and shot Grant once in the back. During his court testimony, Mehserle said that Grant then exclaimed, “You shot me!”  Grant turned out to be unarmed; he was pronounced dead the next morning at Highland Hospital in Oakland.

The events were captured on multiple digital video and cell phone cameras. The footage was disseminated to media outlets and to various websites, where it was watched millions of times.  The following days saw both peaceful and violent protests.

The shooting has been variously labeled an involuntary manslaughter and a summary execution. On January 13, Alameda County prosecutors charged Mehserle with murder for the shooting. He resigned his position and pleaded not guilty. The trial began on June 10, 2010.  Michael Rains, Mehserle’s criminal defense attorney, argued that Mehserle mistakenly shot Grant with his pistol, intending to use his Taser when he saw Grant reaching for his waistband.

Pretrial filings argue that his client did not commit first-degree murder and asked a Los Angeles judge to instruct the jury to limit its deliberations to either second-degree murder or acquittal. Oakland civil rights attorney John Burris filed a $25 million wrongful death claim against BART on behalf of Grant’s family.

On July 8, 2010, the jury returned its verdict: Mehserle was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and not guilty of second-degree murder and voluntary manslaughter.  Initial protests against the ruling were peacefully organized; looting, arson, destruction of property, and small riots broke out after dark. Nearly 80 people were eventually arrested.

On November 5, 2010, Mehserle was sentenced to two years, minus time served. He served his time in the Los Angeles County Jail, occupying a private cell away from other prisoners. He was released on June 13, 2011 and is now on parole. 

In May 2012, Mehserle urged an appeals court Wednesday to overturn his involuntary manslaughter conviction, saying that letting it stand would place police under an increased threat of prosecution for “making mistakes.”

The Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman Murder Trial

The REAL issue that is on “trial” is NOT Zimmerman’s guilt.  That much is OBVIOUS. 

As far as I’m concerned, Zimmerman is guilty of PREMEDITATED MURDER after he STALKED 17-year-old UNARMED Trayvon Martin–against police instructions–ARMED with a 9mm pistol against a BOY armed with a bag of Skittle and a bottle of ice tea.

If Trayvon was white, Zimmerman would have IMMEDIATELY lost his honorary “white man” status and would have been arrested and charged with murder within HOURS–not MONTHS. There would be NO DOUBT in the minds of the WHITE prosecutor, police, judge, jury, or mainstream media that Zimmerman was a MURDERER.

All that aside, what’s at stake in this trial is NOT only whether Trayvon and his family will receive JUSTICE, the biggest unspoken question is:

Can a PRIVATE CITIZEN–on a WHIM–stalk and murder ANY unarmed black male, female, or child, claim “self-defense,” and walk free?

If Zimmerman walks OR is given an “Oscar Grant” slap on the wrist by a Jury (rigged) with five white females and one female Hispanic,  the VERDICT puts a BULL’S-EYE TARGET  on every black person in the United States, regardless of sex, age or infirmary.

The Zimmerman VERDICT on the heels of the whites-only  “Stand Your Ground”  and “concealed carry” laws should be a WAKE-UP CALL for ALL black people, regardless of income, “class,” education, or the “skin color” of bed partners we choose to have.

The Zimmerman trial ALSO reinforces another MAINSTAY in a white supremacy system:   All black males–regardless of age or size–are BLACK BRUTES and CRIMINALS who should be handled with EXCESSIVE FORCE WHENEVER POSSIBLE  and are NEVER to be viewed as VICTIMS–regardless of the evidence OR the circumstances.

It is OBVIOUS that the media and the defense lawyers for Zimmerman are MORE concerned with proving that Trayvon Martin — a brown-skinned black male–is a criminal than proving Zimmerman isn’t.

In fact, the investigators DRUG-TESTED Trayvon Martin’s dead body shortly after his murder but did NOT test Zimmerman for drugs NOR did they even detain him.  After Zimmerman MURDERED Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012, he wasn’t charged until April 11, 2012– almost two months LATER.

Had it NOT been for the INTERNATIONAL SPOTLIGHT cast on this MURDER, I am ONE THOUSAND PERCENT CERTAIN that no charges would have EVER been brought against George Zimmerman.

It is also OBVIOUS that the (white supremacy) prosecution is working in LEAGUE with the defense team by:

1. Not objecting to a jury that excluded blacks

2. Not preparing their witnesses to testify

3. Not fighting to have EXPERT testimony from audio analysis experts, which could EASILY VERIFY which person was calling for help

4. Not hammering hard the OBVIOUS flaws in the Zimmerman defense, like Zimmerman’s CRIMINAL HISTORY as compared to Martin who had NONE. And making the point that it doesn’t matter WHOSE voice is calling for help IF Zimmerman was the ARMED AGGRESSOR.  For example, if a man pursued a woman with a 9mm with the intent to rob and rape her, and by the grace of God she gets in a few kicks, bites, and scratches BEFORE he shoots and kills her, would that make her the CRIMINAL?

How could an UNARMED person being STALKED ever be the VICTIMIZER of the ARMED person who is STALKING THEM?

My Prediction

I believe the VERDICT for the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman murder trial will be a MIRROR IMAGE of the VERDICT in the Oscar Grant/Johannes Mehserle murder trial. It is NO ACCIDENT that the RIGGED Zimmerman jury has been given the manslaughter option as opposed to convicting OR acquitting him of murder.

I also believe that Zimmerman–like Mehserle–IF convicted will be sentenced to two to four years, minus time served, will occupy a private cell away from other prisoners, and will be released on parole after serving LESS than 18 months of his sentence.

My Suggestions After the Verdict is Announced

Four suggestions:

1. AVOID reacting with excessive emotion and use that ENERGY to EDUCATE OURSELVES about the system of white supremacy. (check out the Counter-Racism Boot Camp) I don’t believe ANY black person on the planet should be surprised if Zimmerman walks OR is convicted of manslaughter and receives a light sentence. IN FACT, we should expect it. Black people should NEVER riot to oppose injustice. We must learn to STRATEGIZE so we can UNIFY for OUR MUTUAL PROTECTION and SURVIVAL. Rioting serves NO purpose. We have to start being ANALYTICAL and STRATEGIC– just like our ENEMIES are towards us.

2. WORK on reducing our OWN anti-blackness — which means AVOIDING people, places, things, and activities that DEGRADE, MINIMIZE and/or MARGINALIZE other black people. That includes movies, comedy, entertainment, TV shows, and music that portray blacks as LUSTING after whites, being buffoons, sexual deviates, morons, criminals, clowns, whores, monsters, and freaks. We must also wean ourselves away from excessive materialism, and name-calling (bitches and rachet hos and niggas and dawgs).  We must NEVER, EVER UPLIFT non-black people above black people — neither IN or OUT of the bedroom.

3. REDIRECT our energy into CONSTRUCTIVE ACTIVITIES that will help dismantle the system of white supremacy/anti-blackness by helping others, teaching, training, sharing knowledge, encouraging, supporting, respecting, caring, and spending INSTRUCTIVE time with our children teaching them about the system of white supremacy. That includes buying from and supporting GOOD black businesses whenever possible, and starting our own black businesses.

4. PROGRAM ourselves to respect AND understand the IMPORTANCE of BLACK UNITY.  There is a REASON the white supremacist media is promoting the separation of BLACK MALE from BLACK FEMALE in TV commercials, TV shows, and films.

Some Final Thoughts

What is behind the EPIDEMIC of  MURDERS of unarmed brown and dark-skinned black males? This might be off-topic but I believe it’s IMPORTANT to understand why brown and dark-skinned black males are being targeted for ASSASSINATION more than any other single group in the United States by so-called authority (or wanna-be authority) figures:


“The widespread fear and fascination with black male sexuality is evident in the black male stereotypes in TV and films:

  • the cowardly black male, popular in early films (symbolic castration)
  • the super-hero black male (the virile, masculine, sexually dominate male)
  • the dangerous, violent, animalistic (rapist of white female) black male AKA King Kong who must be destroyed
  • the sexless, neutered black male friend or rescuer (symbolic castration)
  • the black male in dresses, high heels, and earrings (symbolic castration)
  • the foolish/ignorant black male buffoon (self-castration)


“The obsession with black male sexuality (genitalia) is MOST evident among law enforcement:

(1992) Stacy Koon (white male), the Los Angeles police sergeant acquitted in the Rodney King beating, gave this description in his unpublished “memoirs,” of how Mr. King acted when Officer Melanie Singer (a white female) of the California Highway Patrol approached King with a gun: “He grabbed his butt with both hands and began to shake and gyrate his fanny in a sexually suggestive fashion. As King sexually gyrated,
a mixture of fear and offense overcame Melanie. The fear was of a Mandingo sexual encounter.”

In a Los Angeles Times interview, Koon defended his “memoirs” by saying he was trying re-create the antebellum image of a “large black man” and a “defenseless white woman.”

“In society,” Koon said, “there’s this sexual prowess of blacks on the old plantation of the South and intercourse between blacks and whites on the plantation. And that’s where the fear comes in, because he’s black.”

Koon dismisses the MASS RAPE of African slave women by white males by describing it as “intercourse,” to PROJECT THE WHITE MALE’S HISTORY OF RAPE onto black males by pretending (LYING) that black males have a history of raping “defenseless white females.”  As was true then and is STILL true today — at least according to FBI statistics — MOST white female rape victims are raped by white males.

Even in police custody, black male genitalia are NOT safe:

“White cops are scared of black men. The bigger or darker the man, the more frightened the white cop. I can’t shake that; it’s a belief I will take to the grave.” — Norm Stamper, white former Chief of Police of Seattle, WA.

(1977) Documented torture methods used against black males during “interrogations” in Philadelphia (PA) police headquarters included twisting or kicking testicles, and stabbing one suspect in the groin with a sword-like instrument.

(1972-1991) Chicago Police Commander Jon G. Burge and Chicago detectives tortured over 200 black men to coerce confessions. Some documented torture methods:  applying a cattle prod to nipples, genitals, and rectal interiors.

(1997) Abner Louima, a Haitian immigrant, was sodomized with a broomstick handle inside a New York (70th Precinct) police station by two white police officers. While offi cer Schwarz (white male) held him down, officer Volpe shoved a wooden stick into his rectum (sodomized him).

(2007) Coprez Coffie — an unarmed black male sodomized by white police officers with a screwdriver in an alley after being pulled over by Chicago police officers. Doctors reported tears to Coffie’s rectum and a screwdriver was found in the police car’s glove compartment with fecal matter on it.

(1993) Seven African immigrant van drivers accused a white male Queens, New York police officer of raping and sodomizing them in separate incidents. The District Attorney Richard A. Brown dismissed the charges.

 Are these depraved sexual assaults by white males a desperate attempt to turn the black male into a non-threatening female?

Fear Of Black Males OR A Fear Of Forbidden Desires?

(2007) Florida Representative Bob Allen (a white male Republican) was arrested for soliciting sex from an undercover black male cop.  The reason he gave to the police?  He was afraid of becoming anothercrime statistic.”   “…this was a pretty stocky black guy, and there were a lot of other black guys around in the park, and, you know…”

It is illogical to believe Rep. Allen was so “afraid of becoming another crime statistic,” that he VOLUNTEERED to perform oral sex on a black male (undercover officer) in the men’s room at a public park.  Perhaps, this “fear” has LESS to do with being a victim of crime — and MORE to do with the secret, sociopathic, and homosexual obsession about the black male’s PENIS — and his GENETIC DOMINANCE.

Is the homosexual longing for black males so powerful (and so unacceptable) that it leads to unprovoked violence against black males — and black male genitalia?”
