A Deadly Night In Florida: What Many Don’t Know About The Night Trayvon Martin Died

George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in cold blood as the youth cried for help.

The outrage in America is growing in the wake of the senseless and apparentl racist killing of 17-year-old Florida teen, Trayvon Martin, who was gunned down by a gun packing cop wannabe masking himself as a Community Watch Captain. The details are simple, George Zimmerman singled out the Martin kid because he was black, and felt the teen didn’t belong in his neighborhood. Floridian Law Enforcement Authorities are desperately trying to make this a legitimate self-defense case while garnering its “stand your ground” law as justification for the execution of an innocent black child. The town of Sanford, Florida has a storied past with very strained relations between police and the black community. These facts now only fuel a cry for justice across our nation. It seems as if the black community always flares up in arms prepared to protest when racist injustices occur toward our people, but where is the outrage for the other 8 killings that happened throughout the state of Florida the night Trayvon Martin died, and that were committed at the hands of other blacks. No one is calling for justice in those cases. No Minister is calling for demonstrations related to the deaths of these black citizens. No one is denouncing the perpetrators who killed them either. Where is the outrage when countless black youth fall to violence in our community? My argument should not overshadow the injustice in the Martin case, nor is it my intent, but the black community has a double standard laced in our cry for justice related to violent crime. One of the most challenging realities we face is that our community is in fact notorious in failing to assistance in meting out the apprehension of many of our own people who are bad to the very core, who create havoc in many of our neighborhoods, and all along while crying injustice for the lack of swift movement by police charged to protect our very community. We appear weak, foolish, and desperate when we only cry for justice when a racist killing occurs. What are we truely saying here? Is it acceptable for us to kill one another and not aid in the dissipation of black on black violence, yet we say there is no justice for us. Perhaps when we develop the courage to eliminate the criminals within our own communities than other ethnic communities will develop respect for our people. Also, we allow killings of young black people like the other eight that also died February 26, 2012 in the state of Florida to go unmentioned. News affiliates don’t broadcast the plight of our people because we are uninvolved, we are divided, and don’t take a stand. I am mad as hell about the murder of Trayvon Martin, but I became even madder when I learned that there was 8 other killings of blacks by blacks the very same night!
