Trayvon Martin – How the Media Narrative Was Spun To Cover Up The Greatest Danger To Black Teen Boys – The Absence Of Two Parents…

TrayMomThis post is less about Trayvon Martin and more about how the media manipulates the public to sell a specific agenda-filled narrative.

From the very beginning the descriptions of Trayvon Martin by his parents did not make sense. Listening to questions of Tracy and Sybrina, and their answers – their responses were often disconnected, contradictory and, well, just odd in their lack of depth.

On example is this early interview with Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mother.   Note this is very early on before the media handler (Ryan Julison) took control of the scripting, and made sure Tracy and Sybrina appeared together.

Another example was about 2 months later when Sybrina travelled to London, England and was questioned again. Even months later, when asked the same or similar general questions, she just never seemed to be able to describe Trayvon.   Very odd.

Additionally odd was upon hearing of Trayvon’s death Sybrina never left North Dade (Fort Lauderdale) to travel to Sanford. She stayed home.   The first time she actually went to Sanford was to attend a press conference on March 8th.

Also, Sybrina was unable to describe Trayvon’s likes or dislikes. She gave conflicting information about his favorite foods, sports, and things he enjoyed. Sybrina said Trayvon loved basketball, but Trayvon told everyone in his social network he disliked basketball.

When asked about his favorite meal Sybrina said Trayvon liked Fried Chicken; the next time she said hamburgers, and yet another time she described something totally different.

Sybrina told investigators she did not know that Trayvon had a twitter account, and she did not know his name on Facebook.  Sybrina Fulton knew nothing about Trayvon’s U-Tube account, his following of Mixed Martial Art combat fighting,  or his home made movies from street fights to video’s of his cousin.

On the morning she found out he was shot, she sat in the parking lot of her work for a few minutes then drove home – and stayed there.

sybrina familyAll of these are just unusual examples of odd and disconnected descriptions for a parent who was sold to the public as incredibly close to her son and devastated.  And when you look at the pictures of Sybrina with Trayvon, there are always other people in them, and in all of them as a general sense it’s usually Trayvon’s half-brother Jahvaris who seems closest to his mom.

We have fully documented how something changed in Trayvon, something troubling.   A serious and rapid downward spiral in behavior and it is well noted during the time period from October 2010 (trouble with Dad), to Summer 2011 (significant drug use), to the last year of school August 2011 through Feb 2012 when he missed 53 days of school, was suspended three times, and the last suspension was a serious enough violation to warrant 10 days suspension out of school.

And just something about the story of Trayvon and his mom;  and his mom’s behavior not matching the story being sold.   Then we read this recent article in esquire magazine and something stuck out. Something that connected numerous dots in describing exactly what was going on.

He was growing so fast, he’d stretched out like a rubber band, 158 pounds on a five-eleven frame, so long and thin everyone teased him: Boy, you too skinny to take a breath.

He was wearing the hoodie he always wore, lost in his music like he always was. People teased him about that, too. Next door to his uncle Stephen’s house, a modest ranch house where he often spent the night, lived an old lady who called him Mouse.  (link)

This relatively demure comment actually clicked in with another piece of the puzzle from earlier.   THIS is a radio interview given by Trayvon’s aunt, Ebony Martin Mcclain, who is Tracy Martin’s sister, on the Rickey Smiley Show.   The full radio interview is available here, but we have copied the audio onto U-Tube format so that you can listen to it here.

Do you hear what she is saying?

Trayvon was NOT living with his mom.   Trayvon was NOT living with his dad.  Trayvon was living with his uncle, Stephen Martin, a former Marine, and his wife “Aunt Miriam, in Miami Gardens.

Miriam previously described Trayvon’s living arrangements as:

She’s [Miriam] known Trayvon since the day he was born. He spent as much time at their  house as he did anywhere else. (link)

Uncle Stephen’s son (Trayvon’s cousin), Stephen “Boobie” Martin, was Trayvon’s best friend.   Boobie is who travelled to Sanford to visit Trayvon at Brandy Green’s condo in The Retreat at Twin Lakes the final weekend.   It was Trayvon and Boobie who attended Brandy’s son’s football game that Saturday night then all three drove back to Brandy’s condo.  “Boobie” left the following morning (Sunday).

Tracy Martin 2 Tracy Martin 4-18-12

We know Trayvon’s Dad, Tracy Martin,  (pictured above) was living with his sister Ebony Martin Mcclain, as noted in the radio interview, also in Miami Gardens.  However, Tracy was reported to be considering a permanent move to live with girlfriend Brandy Green and her son, Chad, in Sanford.   *Brandy Green is, or was, pregnant with Tracy’s child.

[ You also need to remember Tracy was still married to Alicia Martin - the "step-mom" from the Dr. Phil show.   Tracy and Alicia Martin had been together for 14 years and married for 7  Poor Alicia is by all considerations "The Forgotten Woman"]

Tracy Martin CRIP

Tracy Martin (Trayvon Dad) Far Right

The discussions of Trayvon moving to Sanford had already taken place:

Last night he [Trayvon]  had a long talk with DeWayne, his buddy from pee-wee football.  DeWayne asked what he was doing.

Just chillin’ with my ol’ boy, Trayvon said. Trayvon’s dad was  dating a woman who lived there, a woman named Brandy, and it was looking  serious. If he had to change high schools again to move up there, he said, it  would be a’ight.   (link)

But one thing is certain, at the time Trayvon was shot he WAS NOT living with Sybrina Fulton, his mom.   NOR was he permanently residing with his dad, Tracy.

Now folks on the ground in/around Trayvon’s High School have provided the specific information as to why he did not live with his mom.  However, until that is confirmed, and some additional measures are taken, we will leave it out of the outline.

The behavioral challenges of Trayvon during that winter school session might have led to the decision to put him in the care, custody and guardianship, of his uncle, who by all manner of evaluation, Trayvon did listen to and respect.   Trayvon’s dad, Tracy, was seperated from his wife of seven years Alicia Martin, and his girlfriend in Sanford, Brandy, was pregnant.    Meanwhile he loved him some ‘twerkin’ lap dances.    

But Trayvon was NOT living with Sybrina (mom) or Tracy (dad) during the time prior to the trip to Sanford.

So now, given the revelation of additional facts, and with the hindsight of the TRUTH, do these previous interviews make more sense now?

Certainly all the disparate stories and disconnection now makes sense.   It was all just a ruse to create an impression, a false impression.

The reason Sybrina could not describe Trayvon, was because she did not know Trayvon.  Not in the same sense the attorneys and media consultants were framing her.   This is why early on the entire narrative seemed so disjointed.

The family lawyers, The Scheme Team, were selling a Trayvon family that never existed.  Trayvon neither lived with Sybrina or Tracy.   He was a portable troubled teen who was living with his uncle who was trying to straighten him out.

It is beyond sad – that ultimately, in order not to reflect the typical example of black teen crisis in America the family, or their handlers, felt they needed to script a false storyline for the media.  AND worse yet, the media could not even ask the questions to bring the truth forth.     The media just left those blazing irreconcilable conversations and statements by the scheme team float in the air like dangling participles…..

None of this changes the substance of the case against George Zimmerman.  However, it does reflect a particular character trait, and expose the agenda of the family attorneys.  That falsely constructed story is profoundly wrong.

Trayvon 7-11

They have created this fairy tale story around a 12-year-old little boy named Trayvon Martin.   That person never existed in the life of George Zimmerman.   Mr. Zimmerman met a 17-year-old troubled teen with anger issues, who liked to portray himself as player inside the thug culture, just like his school discipline records will reflect.

The truth will always come out – eventually…. it always does.

      Oh Lou,
      Listen at the one minute mark (Sabrina says trayvon would make breakfast if he got up on time – no one bothers to ask her did he get up on time most of the time or was he latye to school most of the time (with 53 absences or tardies in less than a single school year, brandy green would have had to use her influence with the juvvy justice system to keep this kid out of trunancy court). maybe the reason trayvon needed ot move to sanford was to be near the influential state of florida juvvy worker who regularly fixed his records and hid his sins from view.
      I bet BEFORE trayvon got into all his drug related problems, he had a pretty good attendance record, but after the loss of gang member martin (the guy for whom the pin was made), it was a downward spiral from there.

        Blacks will continue to blame their alarming violent crime numbers and fatherless child numbers on the white man and poverty as the parents drive around with their children listening to music that brags about making it rain on hoes, having 2 Bit&*es at the same time, milking the welfare system, dealing drugs, robbing, assaulting, and killing.

        The problems in the AA society today is a direct result of their culture and their acceptance of violence, drug dealing, womanizing, and taking advantage of government programs designed to help those who can not find means to provide for themselves.

            I’m no prude…far from it. But I simply like good songs – melodies. Can I sing along? Is it fun to sing along? Verse, chorus, verse, bridge, chorus.

            If I want to listen to a song about dealing drugs, I listen to “Tonight, Tonight, Tonight.” A song about womanizing? “Angel of the Morning.” I don’t think I know any songs that deal with taking advantage of the government, though “Last Train to Clarksville” takes advantage of the public transportation system! ha!

            I raise my daughter on this stuff and I think she’s better for it. Even songs that may have less than appropriate meanings, I don’t have to worry about the actual content.”Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” is just about a weirdo place, like Wonka’s chocolate factory. “What’s New Pussycat” is just about a cat.

            Nothing makes me prouder of myself these days than when my daughter recognizes someone like Phil Collins by photo only. I’m sure her peers are going to be less than enthused, but at least my child doesn’t learn about inappropriate things before her time. I never have to ask, “Where did you learn that word?”

                I know. I preview nearly everything my daughter watches. Sometimes that’s not exactly doable, so I watch WITH her. Unfortunately, so much “kid stuff” is anything but appropriate, you can no longer watch with them. You have to preview everything…even the preschool channels.

                I learned my lesson when I saw one of the Chipmunk movies was on HBO. We missed about half of it, but we cuddled up in bed together and turned in on anyway. Chipettes hip-dancing and shaking their bottoms, singing about “putting a ring on it.” CLICK.

                The film is rated PG for “mild rude humor.” What does that mean to you? Bodily functions? Maybe a guy will get hit in the groin? Somebody gonna belch?

                Why should I have somehow known “mild rude humor” included singing about going to the club in your tight pants, dancing with a man on your hip, drink in hand…

                Its nearly impossible to find anything contemporary that is also age-appropriate for her. As far as her media goes, we stick with stuff made 30+ years ago. If its “new,” its FAR below her level – I’m talking Teletubbies-type level where characters don’t speak. She’s way beyond that now.

                I don’t remember what the commercial was advertising, but one of her channels was promoting some movie that was going to be shown soon, and a male lightning-bug was patting his rump and commenting on how the ladies loved his big butt. Sheesh, you can’t even protect your kids from ADS on their own freaking channels. This has gone too far.

                My daughter watches/listens to stuff I grew up with. Smurfs, Tom and Jerry, classic Scooby, 60’s-80s music, etc. She is too young to know this isn’t recent or “cool.” But one day she will realize she’s been “had.”

                The same thing happened to me when I entered the school system. My parents raised me the same way (raised me on what they grew up with). I believe I was in about 2nd grade when I realized that The Beatles were not still together. “Twist and Shout” wasn’t released just a couple of years ago. But I think I had it “better” when I was finally introduced to contemporary things because it was more or less appropriate to my age. It was completely “safe” to watch the Chipmunks back then. The Care Bears didn’t sing hip-hop. The male smurfs never commented on the size or attractiveness of Smurfette’s butt.

                Parents these days. Sheesh. They LIKE watching movies with their kids that talk about big butts. Parents LOVE seeing animated characters sing hip-hop. They listen to it in front of their children too! Of course they love it!

                Parents pretty well demand this content be in their kids’ media. Few are willing to put up with the “cutesy wootsy,” completely sanitary stuff. Its “boring.”

                I can’t imagine it being any worse, but I know it will get that way, and my poor daughter is growing up right in the middle of it.

    I just don’t think TM was expected to show up at BG apartment that night. I don’t understand why Tracy had a box of clothes for the “boys” to go through, why not do that at home. I don’t understand why BigTM had to stop at Kohls to buy warmer sweatshirts before the game. It’s not like they don’t live in Florida and know what the weather is like. Was it a quick decision to leave and he didn’t have time to pack any clothes. If you read the rest of the article Miriam says TM’s large grey sweatshirt is in TM’s drawer in her sons room. So maybe TM left by himself to go to Sanford without anyone knowing about it. Meet up with his cousin. Got in an argument with his uncle and left to find his dad, who knows, but none of it adds up or makes sense.

    From USA today 12-11-12 article.
    “The cousins were like brothers, sharing their childhoods in chapters as they grew, he said. To him, Trayvon’s potential was most apparent when he built, rode and fixed pocket bikes and dirt bikes. ” He used to put them together himself, so he was obviously good with his hands,” Stephen said.

    The night before Trayvon died, Stephen, who was living in Orlando at the time, remembers the two shivering at a park.”

      Author of the article suffers from the same disease as NBC and ABC … selective editing to imply something other than the truth:

      The night of the shooting, Trayvon wore his customary hoodie. As Zimmerman spoke to a police dispatcher, he described the teen as a “suspicious guy” in a “dark hoodie” that was “just staring, looking at all the houses … looks like he’s up to no good or he’s on drugs or something.”

      Dumbsh*t reporter makes it appear that the hoodie was a key element.

      In the actual conversation of GZ with the dispatcher, GZ describes Trademark’s odd behavior, and only after the dispatcher asks for a description of Trademark and his clothes does GZ provide that info. The hoodie was irrelevant.

The civil rights era is over for them, they know it, but refuse to admit that at this point it is up to them to make the difference. Their destiny is in their hands, as it has been for years, they have no excuses left, so they invent new ones pretend that they are still living in the 50’s and 60’s and are still struggling against a discriminatory society. Except that we are not, AAs controlled whole cities, dictate policy and those cities are in ruins (Detroit, Newark, etc.). Chicago there are Sandy Hook like massacres on a given weekend, these is the reality, it is one that they will not accept.

Their #1 interest appears to be their own blackness, and in an age when color matters little they seem incapable of moving on. The Howard University documents are a good example. Not all blacks are like this though, I see plenty who are people who happen to be black, their color doesn’t define them.

        Sorry tara,
        but hiding one’s identity is a big time red flag for me (many convenience stores now have signs that direct people to remove sun glasses, hats, hoodies, to be able to identify anyoen entering the store). at first this bothered me a tad, but then i came to realize it is for the safety of the store clerks AND for shopppers in the store.
        All trayvon had to do was willingly show his face and he would have been far less suspicious (those not breaking into homes are much more likely to be willign to show one’s face and those with no god reason to be haging out will more than likely try to hide their identity).
        VERY RELAVANT in my book.

    The Newton School shooting focused my attention on FBI data on child homicides. The shameful reality is that guns don’t kill children, parents kill children. While guns are used in only a small minority of child homicides, almost all child homicide victims are murderred by their mothers or putative fathers. (Dont forget the DNA studies that confirm paternal uncertainty) Another alarming fact is that African Americans, whose level of paternal uncertainty is extreme, are far, far more likely to murder their children than any other group.

    Trayvon Martin was an extreme case because he was not only denied the support of a father who no doubt had reason to limit his investment in a child of minimal, paternal certainty, he was abandoned by his mother. Sabrina’s infamous facebook photo in which she demonstrates that flaunting the tattoo on her nearly naked breast in an obvious attempt to attract even more sperm donors is a higher priority for her than parenting her son.

    I was wondering what happened to Kim Kardashian wannabe Jasmine Rand, and I see she’s working with another attorney from Parks/Crump to defend some blacks who were charged with voter fraud. As expected, they cry racism. They didn’t cheat, their voting rights were suppressed! (throwing up black power fist)

    Nine people were charged last year in connection with the alleged absentee ballot scheme including Madison County Supervisor of Elections Jada Woods Williams and school board member Abra “Tina” Hill Johnson, both now suspended.

    Williams is facing misdemeanor negligence charges and her case has been moved to Tallahassee. Two defendants have settled their cases through pretrial intervention. The remaining six defendants including Johnson, who won by a mere 28 votes, are facing felony election fraud charges. Some also have been charged with perjury and making false reports to law enforcement. Johnson’s case and that of her husband, Ernest Sinclair Johnson Jr., were not heard Wednesday because their lawyer was too ill to attend.

    It wasn’t part of their legal argument, but the defendants, all black, and their lawyers have said out of court they believe the state investigation that led to the charges was part of an effort to suppress minority voting.

      Child neglect is a form of child maltreatment.[1] Child neglect is a deficit in meeting a child’s basic needs. Furthermore, child neglect is the failure to provide basic physical health care, supervision, nutrition, emotional nurturing, education or safe housing.
      .
      ..the persistent failure to meet a child’s basic physical and/or psychological needs, likely to result in the serious impairment of the child’s health or development. Neglect may occur during pregnancy as a result of maternal substance abuse. Once a child is born, neglect may involve a parent or carer failing to provide adequate food, clothing and shelter (including exclusion from home or abandonment); protect a child from physical and emotional harm or danger; ensure adequate supervision (including the use of inadequate care-givers); or ensure access to appropriate medical care or treatment. It may also include neglect of, or unresponsiveness to, a child’s basic emotional needs.
      .
      There are various types of child neglect.
      Physical neglect refers to the failure to provide a child with basic necessities of life such as food and clothing;
      Medical neglect is when caregivers do not meet children’s basic health care needs;
      Emotional neglect is failing to provide emotional support such as emotional security and encouragement;
      Educational/ developmental neglect is the failure to provide a child with experiences for necessary growth and development, such as not sending a child to school or giving him or her an education.(Barnett et al., p 90).
      Depending on the laws and child protective policies in your area, leaving a young child unsupervised may be considered neglect, especially if doing so places the child in danger

No thought required, they were told A, B, and C and that’s what they continue to believe in spite of piles of contradictory or mitigating info.

    Subject: General problem of the “no-parent” kids.

    Macro-scale of TM’s “future”.

    The Washington Post 12//17/12. Metro, Page B2, “The ‘School-to-Prison’ pipeline”

    This story is about kids who commit almost-crimes in the schools, and almost get arrested.

    Wash Post> “… It was a defining moment for the issue. The “school-to-prison pipeline” is the set of get-tough disciplinary practices that critics say steer students out of schools — though suspension, expulsion, or police involvement – and into the criminal justice system. Lately, this phenomenon is getting more attention”.

    They got this situation EXACTLY BACKWARDS.

    It is the “absent parents”, who are letting these kids “run wild” that produces this problem. But then again, they NEVER blame the parents, they BLAME THE SCHOOLS.

    In TM’s case, TM just skirted “getting caught”. But the 53 classes he “skipped”, and being caught with an “empty bag” of “weed” – were strong indicators of TM’s future – as it is with all these “absent parent” kids. Schools do not raise kids – the PARENTS ARE SUPPOSED TO.

    Put the responsibility where IT TRULY BELONGS.

        The schools have been demanding that they have all the responsibility for at least 25 years. I will never forget the lecture I ended up giving a bunch of high school teachers and explained to them if they would do THEIR jobs and let me do MINE (instead of trying to “parent” our sons and cut us out) that everything would go much better. Idiots. One of our sons still had a couple of behavioral issues in high school, secondary things from some serious learning disaibilities–and the teachers were constantly wwanting to cut him slack because he was “really such a nice boy”–I ripped ‘em a good one and told them to stay out of my way, because, as I pointed out to them, once he got out in the world, he wouldn’t get points for being “really such a nice boy” but would be expected to conduct himself properly at all times. They were VERY BUSY and determined to reparent him and protect him from his mother. He was always bemused at their efforts, because he knew they didn’t haqve a clue about normal parent/child relationships (at least “normal” in our part of the world)…he always knew they had no idea what they were up against.

        myopiafree is quite right that the parents are supposed to raise the kids—but any parent that sorta doesn’t mostly feel like it is going to find it very, very, very, very, very, very easy to default out of the picture–and the schools will LOVE ‘EM FOR DOING IT….. enabling doesn’t beign to cover that they do. I was actively PARENTING and they FOUGHT ME over it—and that was over 25 years ago.

One thing that continues to puzzle me is the diffence in the behavior of Trayvon and his brother. It’s obvious that Trayvon was dealing with many issues including abandonment…..lack of supervision…. trust….anger….negative influences that went unnoticed or ignored….etc. In fact, I have often thought that had Trayvon and George met under different circumstances before Trayvon had fallen so far, George and Shellie would have possibly been able to help Trayvon by mentoring him like the others they helped. I truly believe if Trayvon would have gotten that type of attention from ANYONE things would have turned out completely different for him. I truly think he was a good kid that became the product of his negative environment. So I can’t understand what caused Trayvons life to take the wrong turn it did when his brother’s path is a complete opposite!!!! He speaks well, seems respectful, is in college, I mean…..WTH???

      Trayvon was born 17 years prior to his death. His father, Tracy, left his mother 14 years prior to his death, so Trayvon only knew Sybrina and Tracy together for 3 years.

      Jahvaris was not Tracy Martin’s son. Jahavaris was Sybrina’s son from a former marriage. Perhaps Jahavaris’s father was involved with him as he grew up in a way that Trayvon’s father did not.

      From all indications Trayvon grew up with influences around him that Jahavaris was not similarly exposed to…. That is why despite their common womb, they grew up in disparate ways.

        Or he could just be a different sort of kid. Some kids are destined to overcome obstacles, including their chitty parents, just because of their personal biological and psychological make up. Older and “only” children, including those of irresponsible parents, are notorious for that. If JF is the oldest and, effectively, an “only” if Trayvon wasn’t mostly living with him and Sybrina, it wouldn’t be completely surprising that he’s the family “success story.” He may be quite a bit more responsible than his own parents.

They wont hugs and kisses and attention and they don’t care where it comes from they just need it. Some people think teens don’t need as much attention but there wrong thats when they need it the most. There is so much going on in there little world . Stability is very important when you are a teen it is your foundation and what you build from , with out it there is anger and uncertainty.
