Yesterday I wrote a post discussing the Trayvon Martin smear campaign. And I found out more information today…
In an attempt to keep up the madness of smearing Trayvon Martin’s name and reputation, white supremacists have hacked into Trayvon’s email account, and found nothing! Gawker reports:
“… Klanklannon included none of Martin’s emails in his leak, because the picture they paint is of a normal high school junior preparing for college. A screenshot of Trayvon’s Gmail inbox our source provided us is heartbreaking. Martin apparently used his Gmail account for his college search, and it’s filled with emails about upcoming SAT tests and scholarship applications. (“Trayvon, now is the best time to take the SATs!”) One email included the results of a career aptitude test, our source said. It “talked about his interest in aeronautics and stuff.” – Gawker
I just don’t understand the fascination with trying to further hurt the Martin family. Haven’t they suffered enough? Why doesn’t the ‘law’ put a stop to this? You can see the pain and weariness in the eyes of his mother and father. These parents cannot even grieve the loss of their child due to all of the extra nonsense going on. Why are racist imbeciles trying to justify Zimmerman’s actions? No matter how you slice it, it was wrong. It was murder of an innocent victim. My prayers go out to the loved ones of Trayvon Martin, that God give them supernatural peace & comfort during this time of grief.

There have been a barrage of articles and reports trying to smear Trayvon Martin’s name in the mud & ‘ruin his reputation’ as his grieving mother puts it. First off, I don’t care what the young boy did or did not do, he didn’t deserve to be murdered. His mother and father did not deserve to deal with the tradgedy of losing their precious son. Instead of preparing Trayvon for the excitement of his senior year, prom, graduation and college, they are instead preparing for his burial. All of these so-called charges have been found to be false and irrelevant as noted on the Think Progress website. People want to say that Jackson and Sharpton are playing the race card too much, but the fact is Zimmerman called him a coon. He was after that boy because he was black. The prejudiced attitude of others against this young man and black people everywhere have continued on even in his death.
The Think Progress article states the following 6 facts:
1. Prominent conservative websites published fake photos of Martin
2. The Sanford Police selectively leaked irrelevant, negative information about Martin
3. On Fox News, Geraldo said that Martin was dressed “like a wannabe gangster (I didn’t realize Hollister hoodies were considered gangster attire. I thought people wore them simply because they were cold).
4. Without any evidence, prominent right-wing bloggers suggested that Martin was a drug dealer.
5. Without any evidence, a right-wing columnist alleged that Martin assaulted a bus driver
6. Zimmerman’s friend says Martin was to blame because he was disrespectful to Zimmerman
There is nothing more infuriating than people trying to justify wrongdoing. Zimmerman was wrong and everyone knows it. More details and the complete article can be found on the Think Progress website Here.
