SHAMEFUL: ‘Trayvoning’ Fad Sweeping the Internet

Thanks to loyal reader Doc Holiday for sending in these shameful pics of Caucasian kids simulating the ‘planking’ trend that was once popular on social networking sites.

The young people in these images are seen lying down with a packet of Skittles and a can of iced tea positioned near them. The the candy and iced tea are supposed to represent the items found on the body of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was shot to death by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in sanford, Florida in February.

    This literally makes me sick to my stomach. “We” need to STOP being so passive…..!!! I will continue to pray for Trayvon and his family. My brother was killed back in 2006, they guy who murdered him was sentenced to a mere 4 years in prison. My niece will start kindergarten this fall and the guy has already been released. We were never notified per the state, I just so happen to go on the State of Michigan’s website and seen his release date. When my Grandmother called to inquire, we were told that due to state budget cuts, departments took a lot of personnel cuts. We MUST do better on so many levels.

    :blink: Wow. They can try to say they are trying to garner support all they want. Wasn’t that what the hoodie pictures were for? Nobody in those pics were doing this. I bet you don’t see any black folk doing this.

    Can somebody work some magic and get the GPS coordinates of those pics? :shotsfired:

  • Angie

    Wooooooooooow the lack of respect from the youth these days is ridiculous. Back when I was a young kid it was bad luck to mock the dead. Its a superstition but at least it taught us respect!

    This here got me tight.

  • LadeeA

    Wowww.

    It’s like they want to provoke us to react in a way that they could not handle if we did.

    It’s funny to them until it happens to them or one of their loved one’s.

    The funny thing is, these yt boys be shook up when they come across a black kid in a hoodie or without.

    But they mock this in the comfort of their own neighborhoods. Come to the hood and mock Trayvon, see how far you get. :coffee:

  • Ms. Everything

    This is so disrespectful and everyone of these idiots should have gotten their asses beat more as children (sorry Sandra) and maybe the parents too. It is never okay to make fun of death, ever

    I’m way left on this. I’m assuming it is a tribute to Trayvon and like the idea of it spreading. What am I missing?

    Sandra I just saw this on :yahoo:

    Interesting…..

    Four witnesses in the Trayvon Martin case have changed their stories, some “in ways that may damage” George Zimmerman, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    According to records released last week in the second-degree murder case, the witnesses–all of them neighbors–were interviewed multiple times by police and special prosecutors about what they saw on Feb. 26, the night Zimmerman fatally shot Martin in Sanford, Fla.

    Four days after the shooting, one woman told police she “saw two guys running” and then “a fistfight–just fists, I don’t know who was hitting who.” But on March 20, she told investigators she saw just one person.

    “I couldn’t tell you if it was a man, a woman, a kid, black or white,” the woman, “Witness 2,” said. “I couldn’t tell you because it was dark and because I didn’t have my contacts on or glasses. I just know I saw a person out there.”

    Another witness, who was initially interviewed on March 20, said she saw two people on the ground immediately after the shooting, but was not sure who was on top.

    But in another interview with investigators six days later, the paper reported, she was sure: It was Zimmerman on top.

    “I know after seeing the TV of what’s happening, comparing their sizes, I think Zimmerman was definitely on top because of his size,” the woman, “Witness 12,” said.

    [Related: Lies, mistaken eyewitnesses top reasons for wrongful convictions]

    A third witness, “Witness 6,” told police on the night of the shooting he saw a black man on top of a lighter-skinned man “just throwing down blows on the guy, MMA-style.” He said the light-skinned man was calling for help. Interviewed later by investigators, he said he was not sure who was calling for help, and is not sure any punches were thrown.

    A fourth witness also interviewed on the night of the shooting said he heard the shooting, ran outside, and saw Zimmerman standing with “blood on the back of his head.” According to “Witness 13,” Zimmerman told him that Martin “was beating up on me, so I had to shoot him.”

    A month later, the same witness described Zimmerman’s demeanor: “[It was] not like ‘I can’t believe I just shot someone!’ It was more like, ‘Just tell my wife I shot somebody,’ like it was nothing.”
