    REQUIEM FOR TRAVON MARTIN: I FEEL SO SICK

    By Andre Austin

    Zimmerman profiled Martin thought he was a thug

    Stalked and followed him when there was no more sun

    Travon wasn’t dangerous or high off of drugs

    He was just coming home from 7-11 off of a candy run

    Now white folks celebrate by shooting off fireworks and their guns

    That’s what happened in my hood after the Jury’s verdict was read

    That’s how White people claimed victory over a black child that’s dead

    If it wasn’t about race then why no blacks on the jury

    Because they didn’t want it to be hung

    So now when see the hype of the black man fury

    Can’t get no justice what we got was a pile of dung

    It’s a shame our youth can’t walk to the store at dark

    Without a creepy dude shooting them point blank rage in the heart

    Would I be weak if I flooded some cries

    But I’m too **** mad at the defense lawyer’s forked tongue lies

    Jury Nullification because no blacks were picked

    I’m so sad and I feel it up to hear and I’m so Sick

    Just So Odd
    by Willa

    Cain't nobody say what's see'n to the eye.
    Zimmerman not White he's brown, snapen snap - no lie.
    His momma and his pops sing mexicali-phillpines,
    Standin' at the guillotines hopen for the why.

    White people convictin' white people; nobody sayin'
    just walkin' in the streets, holdin' arms and prayin'.
    We got a giant wid a cyclopean eye, reportin' heads
    tellin us what we plain seein'. In spite of what is said,
    I know betta; they ain't white -- the Zimmermans.

    I feel total peace on this-----------------:angel1: and flow.

    Is Zimmerman a Phillipines name? I know his mother is South American (not sure she's Mexican), but I thought his father was white?

    Zimmerman =German-Jewish... The mother and father are either South American or, looks like Philipine islands, close to China. The name somewhere in the family tree. The next time you see them, what do you think?

    Just to keep the flowin' goin'.
    Roses are red violets are blue.
    I like guitars and big drums too.
    But not in this thread, cause we have to have peace in here. :flowers:

    I agree. I've seen on other (white) sites that they don't see him as being white, but they are willing to side with him due to Trayvon being black.

    Peace!

    Of course they don't see him as white. But the fact remains, his father IS white.
