The fact that Obama could have been Trayvon doesn’t exonerate Trayvon, it condemns Obama.


The President honors Trayvon Martin the only way he knows how—by making it about himself.

Lyndsey Fifield

President Obama really have been Trayvon Martin? Of all the young dead
men and children in this country how similar has the President’s life
been to them? How similar has yours been?

What circumstances lead to these tragedies? How much free will?

More than anything else this appears to be a martyrdom for Trayvon Martin.  Certainly there is no harm in mourning his death but I can see no gain to anyone for invoking his name at the exclusion of every other dead son or daughter, mourned by parents, relatives, and other loved ones.
