Some things are simply so insane that, even when presented before you, the mind rejects them as a possibility. That was my reaction when I saw this headline: “Stop the Sale of Trayvon Martin Shooting Targets.”
Now we know. There’s a silent constituency that feels quite different than most of us about the recent senseless death of a black teenager at the hands of a zealous gunman. There’s an insane element out there that is coming completely clean about where they stand.
At least they’re being honest. While so many other Americans still deny they believe that young black men are best used for target practice, someone has come right out and made it crystal clear. So they’re using the symbols of Trayvon’s death – a hoodie, a can of iced tea, and skittles – to serve notice. There will be more.
My first reaction is outrage. My second response is that I’m going to work harder to try and help get President Barack Obama re-elected. It is apparent that his presence in the White House is driving a lot of affirmed racists to the edge. Four more years of an Obama administration might just send them over the cliff. VOTE, people. VOTE. Meanwhile, check out the disgusting link below.
