My son is 39 years old at this writing. Travyon could have been my grandson.
My son will be 40 years old in November. He could feasibly have a 17 year old son, after all when I was 40 my son was 19 years old. Since I was 40 with a 19 year old son, this means to me my 40 year old son could have a 19 year old of his own.
The race and black thing is only the superficial issue. Trayvon Martin became an international cause not because of the color of his skin but because of the purity of his heart.

Look . . . We are talking about them . . . they . . . The capitalist ruling class, fascist and custodian of private property. They, them . . . . The real bourgeois ruling class have orchestrated the murder of black men, women and youth forever.
Trayvon Martin became Trayvon Martin due to the purity of his heart. If all you can do is look in his face and see black, then you might want to consider a second opinion and the meaning of the purity of the human heart.
Trayvon Martin is everyone’s 17 year old son on planet earth, murdered by a fascist thug looking for a fight. The jury did not see Trayvon as their son. They saw color and a monster.
Trayvon Martin became Trayvon Martin due to the purity of his heart. Trayvon Martin is beauty. In my world there is good and evil and in between these extremes is a healthy dose of misbehaving. Misbehaving is sin. Zimmerman did not commit a sin. Zimmerman committed evil and as a predator stalked Trayvon and murdered him. Zimmerman murdered beauty.
I always understand color is in play because America was founded based on African slavery as its primary source of wealth and this meant the beat down of blacks and the genocidal murder of Indians. The treatment of blacks by the capitalist system is not because they are black but because of money, profits and who shall benefit the most from the labor of the individual.
Zimmerman is an ideological fascist. All fascists are by definition racist, but all racists are not necessarily fascist. Florida is as far South as you can go and be in America. I am not anti-South, I am anti-Confederate South and the old thinking and actions of the old Confederacy and the old slave-owning class.
Boycott , Boycott
Boycott the high cost of living in Florida and the low slave wages. The real Floridians are the people who live there year round and not the retirees and the “sun birds” that come to Florida for vacation time and owing a “time share” residency or condo.
Boycott all Florida products. Tampa Florida was the scene of the last phase of the old Civil Rights Movement, with riots in Tampa in 1989 (if memory serves me correct) and protest in Liberty Civil over the killing of a black motorcyclist.
I don’t have to have Florida ORANGE JUICE, or FLORIDA ORANGES, when one can eat oranges from across the world, or even California.
I don’t have to visit DISNEY WORLD or watch the MIAMI HEAT BASKETBALL TEAM, MIAMI MARLIN BASEBALL TEAM, TAMPA BAY RAY’S BASEBALL TEAM, TAMPA BAY BUC FOOTBALL TEAM, or the MIAMI FOOTBALL TEAM.
I don’t have to patronize the ORLANDO MAGIC BASKETBALL TEAM; ALL ENTERTAINMENT, INCLUDING BASEBALL SPRING TRAINING and things Florida.
I do make exception for the Indian Casinos, which in Tampa have on their wall a history of Civil Rights including Malcolm X.
Yep. I told you I lived in Florida for a while.
