TrayMom™ Sybrina Fulton and the Scheme Team had a successful fundraising outing on Sunday morning at Baltimore’s Empowerment Temple. The church of the Rockstar Pastor Rev. Jamal Bryant who has been at her side during the coast-to-coast Trayvon Trail Of Tears Tour.
“It’s so easy for me to cry right now but I can’t because I have work to do,” she told the congregation. “I was forced into this position, but I believe God is using me.”
TrayMom appeared wearing a stylish custom made gray cocktail suit with sparkling bling buttons. She said “the support of people like those at Empowerment Temple has helped to keep her going”. Boy is she ever right; the financial support from those who blindly provide their paychecks is definately keeping her going.
“My heart is filled right now,” she told the church, who gave her a standing ovation and deafening applause and cheers. “Just to see you all, just to see Baltimore.”
You betcha, “hearts filled” and bank accounts swelling as the exploitation Scheme Team Tour
coordinates plots their next venue(s) congregations fleecing.
During the service Bryant called Fulton “the mother of the new civil rights movment” and “this generation’s Rosa Parks.”
Just as a reminder this is the Justice for Trayvon Martin Foundation:

Traymom™ (seen here) and the Scheme Team™ are back on the road this weekend with plans to speak Sunday at a Baltimore mega-church, Empowerment Temple. A fitting venue to capitalize on newly headlined Trayvon™ optics. Simultaneously the Scheme Team™ will be able to literally repay church pastor, Reverend Jamal-Harrison Bryant, with a handsome 20% indulgence fee for his prior support in Florida.
TrayMom™ Sybrina Fulton’s appearance at Empowerment Temple Church in Northwest Baltimore will be her first in the city, and an opportunity for local parishioners to hear from “a mother who has grieved but still has strength,” according to the Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant, who founded the 8,000-member church in 2000.
It will also be the congregations first opportunity to contribute directly to the TrayMom™, Martin, Crump, Sharpton, Jackson and NAACP entourage.
Reverend Bryant personally arranged TrayMom™ Fulton’s visit, after having developed a mutually beneficial relationship with Martin’s Scheme Team family in the past three months. It seems like only yesterday when Rev Jamal Bryant stood on a Florida stage with the Scheme Team family amid the flash bulbs and spotlights after George Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder.
At the Scheme Team Family news conference Bryant proclaimed:
“Many said we were rabble-rousers and outside agitators”. “We are here because injustice is here. We are going to stay on this case until all of the Trayvon Martins across America have their place in the halls of justice.”
Ah yes, those golden halls o’ justice and Benjamin laden pathways paved with c-notes to temper the tears.
TrayMom™ Fulton’s Sunday call to offering will be especially poignant for those who have lost their own loved ones to violence, and feel the need to temper their own tears with the release of doves and dollars.
“We’ve encouraged people within our congregation, if they know someone who has suffered a similar loss, to come on Sunday,” Bryant said.
Times are tough, folks are experiencing a recession, and the church needs a boost.
Bryant first aligned himself with the Scheme Team and TrayMom™ family shortly after the death of the dope smoking, hooded, and tattooed young man who called Sybrina
mom Sybrina. Bryant was called down to Sanford by local pastors there, he said.
Bryant had gotten to know those Orlando pastors between 1995 and 2000, when he served under Kweisi Mfume as the national youth director for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), where Natalie Jackson esq proudly displays her financial civil rights business cards.
The pastors asked for his help because they knew he had “the history and the organization” to handle an influx of media and a bright spotlight, Bryant said.
Once in Sanford, Bryant met the head of the Scheme Team, Benjamin Crump, who most certainly will also be at Empowerment Temple on Sunday. The ‘Bag Man’ Benjamin Crump esq introduced Rev Bryant to the front team of TrayMom™ and TrayDad™.
Jamal Bryant began counseling, advising and ministering the grieving front team as they started traveling around the country asking for
money justice for their son. From small venue Sanford to bigger cash haul cities like Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Birmingham, Washington, D.C. and London.
“The more time we spent with each other the more we felt connected, and the more they said they had faith they could trust me,” Bryant said. “We developed a legitimate friendship.”
Bryant says he believes there is a new civil rights movement brewing — he’s part of a coalition of African-American clergy called the Empowerment Movement — to secure the safety, education and economic success of the nation’s African-American youth.
“We are moving the black church from the sidelines to the front lines to deal with relevant civil rights issues that affect the black community.”
Bryant wants to showcase the fundraising acumen of TrayMom™ in front of his own congregation because “her bravery in the face of her son’s death is a powerful example of how to stand up to injustice“, he said.
Plus the 20% indulgence fee will go a long way to increasing the credibility of anyone connected to the Scheme Team narrative. I mean, really, why should TrayMom™ keep all those tear drying dollars to herself. There is enough exploitative fuel to keep this one active for quite a while.
“Sybrina is going to serve as my generation’s Rosa Parks, to really stand as a lamplight for the next movement in civil rights among the hip-hop generation,” Bryant said.
Empowerment Temple, at 4217 Primrose Ave., has seating for about 2,000+, and Bryant said he expects sold-out ‘full-houses’ for both performances scheduled during peak services at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Sunday, when TrayMom™ Fulton and Al Sharpton along with Benjamin Crump will pass the
plates trash cans around.
“I think a great number from our city are going to come and stand in allegiance,” Bryant said.
5,000 attendees x $20 = $100,000.00
- Church Pastor Rev. Jamal Bryant – Indulgency Fee @ 20% = $20,000.00
- Sharpton, Jackson, Jealous – Indulgency Fee @20% = $20,000.00
- Scheme Team™ Net Proceeds $60,000.000 (tax-free)
Not bad for one quick morning of exploitation and still have time for lunch.
PRAISE JESUS !
Update: Treeper Sibilj shares a link to some background info on Pastor Jamal Bryant. Bryant is a high-profile, politically connected pastor with a congregation that counts more than 10,000 members and a business acumen that has resulted in book deals, inspirational text messages and plans for a clothing line.
Pastor Bryant has sired five children from three different women, one child came to light as the result of a lawsuit for failing to provide child support. He acknowledged this one, a daughter, for the first time from the pulpit only after the court battle over child support payments surfaced. His trophy wife, model, and mother to three of his children, Gizelle Bryant, divorced him in 2008.
In Gizelle Bryant’s filing last month, she accuses her husband of adultery, cruel treatment and “excessively vicious conduct” that caused “reasonable apprehension of bodily suffering so as to render cohabitation unsafe.” Bryant’s conduct, her complaint says, “was his final and deliberate act and was calculated to, and did, seriously impair” her “health and permanently destroy her happiness.”
Pastor Bryant is well known for his flashy lifestyle, which includes a Bentley and a multimillion-dollar Canton waterfront property; And his lifestyle has attracted criticism from those who say the church is more about his business enterprises and building wealth than religion.
In the 2008 divorce complaint Gizelle stated her husband earned more than $350,000 a year as pastor for the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) “Empowerment Temple”. (article)
