Following the essential advice of professional money hustlers, TrayMom™ toned down the bling for this visit and sported a more subtle and subdued pin striped suit befitting the financially distressed East St. Louis community church. However, that didn’t stop TrayMom™ from continuing to pass the plate. Once again the Scheme Team™ hiding behind the guise of raising funds for the “Trayvon Foundation”™.
[…] Trayvon’s father, Tracy Martin, who grew up in East St. Louis, and his mother, Sybrina Fulton, attended a Stop the Violence rally Friday at the North End Missionary Baptist Church. The church’s capacity was 750, but the crowd filled the sanctuary and spilled outside.
Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Trayvon’s family, stirred the packed church by asking them to repeat after him loud enough so Trayvon could hear them: “I am Trayvon Martin.”
He compared the death of Trayvon Martin, 16, on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., after a neighborhood watch member shot the teen, to the death of Emmett Till, 14, who in 1955 was murdered after whistling at a white woman.
Emmett Till’s mother, Mamie, made the “brave decision” to have her son’s brutalized body brought from Mississippi back to Chicago, stopping in cities along the way to let the people know what three white men did to her son.
Then he looked around at the audience and said the Martin family made the decision that they would not be quiet about the situation but would talk, beg, scream and fight until they got justice. […]
Benjamin Crump knows how to pitch a crowd, and deliver them to a standing fervor while shouting the names of Trayvon™ and TrayMom™. The tour has steadily improved and become more efficient in performance delivery, each participant more comfortable with their role. Now, with so many promotional events now under their belt, they are getting quite good at the standard “rally in a
coffin box” it takes them no time to swoop in, deliver the message, work up the crowd, and then deliver the fleecing.
Following sold out and successful performances in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville, Birmingham, Baltimore, and even London, the cross-country and international exploitation is raking in the cash one plate or trash can at a time.
But this performance was especially sentimental for absentee sperm donor, and genetically documented TrayDad™, Tracy Martin.
Traydad™ grew up and gained his street cred in ESL. These are his peeps to fleece. He knows these donors better than he knew his own son. But, then again, that ain’t saying much. TrayDad™ was quoted as saying the tour “hadn’t seen the support we will get until we get to East St. Louis“. In other words, he felt this could potentially be a big payday stop on the tour for tears and cash. Tax free cash mind you.
Benjamin Crump talked to the crowd about the mission for the Trayvon Martin Foundation™:
- * To be advocates for families who have lost loved ones to senseless crimes.
- * To educate young people on conflict resolution techniques.
- * Increase awareness against all types of profiling.
- * Enact “Trayvon Martin” legislation to confront and amend the stand your ground principles that suggest that you can be the aggressor and then try to claim self-defense.
Crump, speaking about profiling, said, “We believe in our heart of hearts that Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch vigilante got out of his car, profiled and confronted Trayvon Martin as he was just trying to walk home with his Skittles and iced tea.”
Before taking his seat, Crump told the crowd that he and the family came to East St. Louis “to stand with you to stop the violence.”
“Just think for one second. I want you all to consider what if on Feb. 26, George Zimmerman didn’t have a gun. It might’ve been an altercation, but nobody would be dead. Trayvon would’ve been going to his prom, and pursuing his dreams in the aviation field.
Amid loud applause, Fulton first thanked the people “for standing up for my son.” Then, she said, “Trayvon is your son, your stepson, your grandson, your nephew — all of your sons. If it could happen to my son, it could happen to your son. We all have to get up and stand up for justice. Trayvon is no different from any other kid.”
TrayMom™ asked every donor in the room to:
“change your kids’ minds and make sure you’re talking to them every day and giving them hugs and kisses. You have to give them love.”
Ironic words coming from a “mother” who barely knew her son’s “interests” and dispatched him from person to person as caregiver. This same “mother” who never even went to Sanford after being told Trayvon was shot and killed, when she instead chose to remain in Fort Lauderdale and organize the exploitation tour.
Fulton said Trayvon was never afraid to hug and kiss her in public.
Not surprising considering the four step-fathers, minimum 3 step-mothers, and umpteen step-brothers and sisters by marriage, sperm donation, or just plain coincidence. Heck, I’m sorry to be a little snarky about it, but, Trayvon™ could hug a stranger at the bus stop and I’ll bet in some way he would be “step-related” to the stranger. Under those circumstances why not just greet everyone like Mom. I digress…..
TrayDad™ (aka TraySpermDonor™), who literally grew up all over East St. Louis, including the Roosevelt homes, the Norman E. Owens housing projects, at 21st and Lynch and also in Washington Park, said the guns are the problem: “guns need to go“.
“We have to take the guns away, but we have to replace them with something. It starts with God and love. We have to get back to family love, family values. We have to embrace and love each other. Then we need jobs. And we have to give them a book, an education. Without education, it’s a lost cause.”
Yeah, he actually said that. I had to find a citation because I just about fell out of my chair. “Family love and family values“? Tracy Martin, aka TrayDad™ actually said that with a straight face.
This, “family values” comment from the same guy who fathered a kid out-of-wedlock before hooking up with TrayMom™ (Sybrina Fulton) who was herself with a child from another sperm donor that was not TrayDaddy™ Martin; and while married to TrayMom™ hooked up with another woman who became wife #3, and is still currently still married to, when he jumped ship a few years ago and hooked up with “girlfriend” Brandy Green in Orlando, who owns the townhouse where Trayvon™ was shot.
TraySpermDonor™ talking about “Family Values” is about as credible as Charlie Sheen discussing the immorality of prostitution.
TrayDad™ continued by saying more resources are needed to invest in centers for young men and women to go to so they can be off the streets. Hey, here’s a thought what about a “HOME”, try that one on for size.
Talking about his son, TrayDad™ said:
“Trayvon thought it was safe for him to walk outside. He was in a gated community. That community has been there for five years. We shouldn’t have to be afraid to walk outside, or be afraid of profiling, or of getting robbed or shot.”
A group of family and friends, best described as co-dependent sheeple, presented Fulton and Martin with a plaque that contained Trayvon’s picture with him wearing a hoodie. The Martin family was told that the plaque would serve as a constant reminder of their solidarity with the family — and their vow to fight for justice right along with them.
A kid named Brianna Hunter, 13, said, “gun violence is not always the answer.”? “Not Always”… well, that’s a good start I guess. Yeah, that’s the ticket, let’s support a 13-year-old contemplating when “gun violence” should or should not be the appropriate response to the feeling if vulnerability in the self-fulfilling ghetto zoo they are forced to live in.
The 13-year-old sage continued by saying:
“People need to learn how to settle their differences without shooting people. Put down the guns and pull up your pants. That’s disrespectful.”
