NAACP, Trayvon Martin Family Fighting To Repeal Stand Your Ground, Racial Profiling

0 Shares

The NAACP, the Nation’s oldest civil rights organization, is leading a charge to encourage lawmakers to introduce a set of legislative proposals to address what it believes are flaws in the legal system that led to the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.

“The killing of Trayvon Martin is a heartbreaking tragedy, but his death must not be in vain. Trayvon’s Law will serve as the foundation for community advocates as they work to remove laws that contributed to his death and create new laws that with prevent future tragedies,” said NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Jealous in a statement.

The set of bills, collectively called Trayvon’s Law, include proposals that the organization believes would end racial profiling, repeal stand your ground laws, form effective civil complaint review boards to provide oversight of police misconduct, improve training for community watch groups, mandate law enforcement to collect data on homicide cases involving people of color and address the “school to prison pipeline.”

NAACP representatives say they plan to push the legislation at the local, State and Federal levels of government. The Florida NAACP chapter will begin pushing the laws in that State immediately.

“We will not rest until Trayvon’s Law is fully implemented in our state,” said NAACP Florida State Conference President Adora Obi Nweze. “From a civilian oversight board of police to best practices for community watch volunteers, we will demand that the Governor and our legislators move quickly to adopt these principles before we are faced with another tragedy.”

Meanwhile, Martin’s parents, Sabrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, have embarked on a campaign to repeal or amend Stand Your Ground laws throughout the Nation. They have set up the Trayvon Martin Foundation, to lobby States with Stand Your Ground laws to adopt a named amendment which would void that defense if a shooter was the aggressor in a fatal confrontation.

“We understand sometimes it’s a long journey to justice,” Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump said Friday during a press conference at the National Association of Black Journalists convention in Orlando. “From the Emmitt Till tragedy to the Civil Rights Act, that was almost a decade. Just because the fight is long doesn’t mean we’re not going to be successful.”

      The NAACP stands for Need An Alternative Communist Party. One the will destroy all but the blacks They don’t want equal rights they want superior rights. The right to riot, protest, and sue if things go against their wishes. They want to speak as they please without recurse and label others racists while abasing themselves is acceptable.

          Unfortunately placing labels on others does little provide masculine traits to the emasculated like you. If you feel

      In this country, the Same thing Can be & soon Will be the cause of Millions of Christians meeting that same Fate & for the Same Exact Reason!
      Why Else would the Democrats Openly Remove GOD from their Party & Embrace the MUSLIM god ALLAH?

        My Friend Quester,
        I can’t argue with you as you’re 100% correct with the example you have displayed.
        This makes my heart heavy that so many are so blind / or in the true meaning of the word blind – { in “tight little box” } that they refuse to look out from.
        Yet We also have a third party in this dance that few want to see or wish to really look at for the damage they have done over the last 5000 years.
        That’s why they keep on doing this dance all the while blaming everyone else with the shame game, yet they the true criminals the followers of Lucifer who follow the “Talmud” of what oddly sounds a lot like the “Koran”
        The Talmud also teaches that its all within reason to Lie, Cheat, Rob, Rape and Belittle Gentiles, at every opportunity, and if a gentile ever thinks of returning the favor, then they gang up on you and your an “Anti Semite.”
        Of what oddly Jews are not Sumerians. Yet that’s what being an “Anti Semite” really means, anti Sumerian.
        But then again the Talmud was partly written in non other than Babylon the very seat of the Sumerian’s.
        That begs the question what else has been hidden from us?
        Knowledge is POWER that’s why the followers of Lucifer want to shut down the internet, take away all Freedoms that humans were given by GOD and that’s why they scrub the net of anything that exposes them for what they really are.
        Peace and Love my friend, May the Holy Sprit bring you the Love of our beautiful Christ.

        • Ciccio

          The very first thing your beautiful Christ did was to acknowledge the truth and divine origin of the Talmud . He went on to declare that he is indeed a Semite, a Jew. I am sure you know that together with the Bilderburgs the Jews, having nearly finished their work of 9/11 and the financial collapse were only waiting for you to show your face so that they can crush that voice shouting out the truth in the wilderness and take over the rest of the world. A crafty lot they are, you can see that with the chaos they are causing in Egypt and Syria and now even Turkey. They must surely be in league with Lucifer, how else could the co-opt even the sharks of the red sea and the the very birds in the sky, Jewish spy birds were found in Turkey and in the Sudan, clearest proof that they are intent on nothing but world-wide domination. The recent revelations about the NSA spying on Americans is only a further proof, everybody knows it is Israeli equipment, they must be behind all that. They are close to breaking through the final barrier to your thoughts, the aluminum foil that now protects you. You are no longer safe with your foil cap but the forces of good are advancing almost as fast. Recent research has found that if you fill you cap with custard and stick a banana on top you will be safe again.

          • TIME

            Dear Cic-cio,
            Really, you just took a page straight out of the Talmud, now how special is that?

            But I digress as its quite obvious you’re a really special person, as well you have a well versed mind on the tin foil reduction adherence to the gray matter / flux filters for dual venous sinues.
            I hope you can get some help with that problem, oh, darn – I forgot there is no help – oh well good luck with that..

All Americans should be trained to shoot and own at least one gun. Because, if you criminalize guns, only criminals will have guns.

      I don’t ascribe to your diatribe. You cannot judge all people by a minority sampling of a particular race. I can however understand profiling. I have been subject to ridicule when our family immigrated form Germany in the early 40’s so I know. I am quite sure (in fact I know) there is scum within all ethnic groups. I have some very good relationships with most all ethnicities. I would be lying if I didn’t admit I have my preferences with whom I like to deal with as do we all.

      • Ron Brueske

        Diatribe? Pray tell me, if the black race was to be removed from America, what would our crime rate be? Is it not a fact that with a total population of around 12.5% that they, the blacks commit a huge number of crimes?

        The black race is in shambles, the shambles are caused not by you or I, but by our government. The black race has bought into the Democrats vision for them, the same Democrat party that has kept them down since they invented the KKK. But instead of looking out for themselves, blaming their so-called leadership and the Democrats that they keep putting into office, they blame you and I.

        Who would more than likely emerge alive, a black man/women walking through the whole length of the average white neighborhood, or the white man/woman walking through the whole length a black neighborhood, both cases in the major cities of America, unarmed, with no previous newscast that it was going to happen, at night?

        Before you answer, every liberal women, who got on my case about black crime, has REFUSED my offer of $1000, if she will walk through a random big city, black neighborhood, drawn out of a hat, at night.

        Do I know regular law abiding black folks, yes I do. Want to take a guess on what they are saying? They do not accuse me of having a “diatribe”. They MOVED out because of the RAMPANT crime CAUSED BY THEIR RACE into a nice and safe white neighborhood, where their children will NOT be killed by a random bullet from a drive by shooting, and that drive by shooting ain’t being done by white folks. Yes indeed we do talk about what is going on. But then again, they as I do, want what is best for the black race in America.

        As for you being subject to ridicule, try having my last name, Polish in origin, growing up. My brothers and sisters and I, to this day do not whine and cry about the unrelenting teasing, mocking and jokes made to and about us. But I guess that is because we are……….. White?

        “You cannot judge all people by a minority sampling of a particular race.” Yes I can, because you got it wrong, it is NOT a minority sampling, it is a very large number of that MINORITY race, that are committing the crimes.

        • Vis Fac

            Analogy or not; Again you are only one member of the public and sound more like a liberal who in their opinion has not only the right but duty to speak for everyone by what authority do you have to say how the general public thinks? I am offended by people’s piety when they think they can speak for others without their permission. I am a member of the public and you do not have permission to speak for me. You are entitled to your opinion you are entitled to express your opinion. I served this country so you can have opinions and express them.

            Um, but those were your exact words, instead of “blacks” it was about the police to some other poster on another subject. I just tossed “blacks” in to make point. That is why I added the quotes, beginning and end.

            Another point I would like to make, is I do read the activity of the people who respond to me.

            So I figured if it was good enough for you to speak for others, why then I could use your paragraph freely also.

            It is easy for those who use an alias to sling words and barbs, hide and laugh all the while doing it. My profile is 100% correct and who I am can be verified.

          White Radicals promoted and orchestrated Black demise. They couldn’t by themselves have devolved from poorly treated but noble and lawful people with a lower crime rate, fewer out of wedlock births, and more intact families than Whites without being poisoned from within. What you see is the results, and they aren’t pretty. Today there are also the self promoters like the “Jack & Jill” crowd no different than my Chinese cousins in educational ambition, using their black skin color to do the same thing.

          When society doesn’t protect its most vulnerable, and makes excuses for bad behavior, the affliction soon pays all of society a visit. This fact has nothing to do with race as you can find the same everywhere. The best example is Hmong society in Camp Le June in the supposes racist South and liberal retarded regressive Fresno Ca. In Camp Le June they were welcomed with open arms, and assimilated; the results were Chinese achievements in school in a few years. 30 years later In Fresno Hmong crime is rampant, as is illiteracy, and violence.

          I know what it’s like to grow up poor & White with a chip on my shoulder, and it wasn’t easy to shake. The teachers at my high school were more interested in their union or being management than teaching.

            As the eldest of 9 children, I grew up poor, lived in both projects and (when my old man was between jobs) sometimes in condemned housing.

        • Vis Fac

          Granted but you cannot judge all black men by the actions of a few just as you cannot judge all white people by the actions of a few. Giving in to you analogy should we just eliminate all black people or just subject them to scrutiny because of their skin color? Do do the condemn all White Asian, or Hispanic people too?
          I understand profiling and why it is necessary but again we need a little common sense when doing so. A 95 year old woman is not a terrorist and all blacks are not criminals either.

      Actually, I’m optimistic. I know things look really bad, but the race industry is throwing everything they have at us. What makes me optimistic is that more people are not accepting the false charges of racism and the lies. And fewer people believe anything the traditional media have to say. I know I won’t even accept a reference to ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, AP, New York Times, … in an argument.

      The race industry has had an easy time of it up until now. All they had to do was cry ‘discrimination’ and their victims would roll over and pay whatever to atone for the perceived slight. I think we’re seeing a backlash, so it will no longer be a pushover to extort money using the race card.

        My Fellow’s have Come so Far from those days of master’s ruling over them, I’d hate to see them All BACK-SLIDE, to the 1950’s again, Just because of a Few HATERS in our ranks.

      MARCH 26–The mother of Trayvon Martin has filed two applications to secure trademarks containing her late son’s name, records show.

      Sybrina Fulton is seeking marks for the phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon,” according to filings made last week with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In both instances, Fulton, 46, is seeking the trademarks for use on “Digital materials, namely, CDs and DVDs featuring Trayvon Martin,” and other products.

      How come she has a different name????????

        In my book, She has only one Name or Title, & That is: ” Prostitute,” Oh not for Sex, but for Obtaining Money by taking Advantage of Tray’s DEATH!
        the Same was true of O.J.’s In-laws, who could care less about their DEAD Daughter, As long as they could show their GREED by Stealing everything O.J. Had.
        My Question is; Where was all of their Deep Concern for their, Uninsured SON, Before his Death?

    What a Shame that the Parents of Tray Martin’s is Using the same , Racial Profiling As they claim was used on their son! However white Folks don’t have the Corner Market when it comes to being an HYPOCRITE ! We blacks Often prove ourselves to be Bigger Hypocrites than the Whites. Shouting peace & Demanding Justice for ALL & Then turning around & STABBING All White Folks in the Back, When the Opportunity presents itself!
    It’s Because of People like the Martin’s that We’ll NEVER See PEACE among the RACES in AMERICA, Any Time soon!
    The Martins Should put Their FAITH where their MOUTH is & Forgive Mr. Z.
    I,M.O.

    Just give the Politburo in D.C. time… We will be like the UK, where self defense is not a defense because you took your nine iron (sorry, no guns allowed) and ENDED the goblin that broke into your home and was trying to rob you, rape your wife and kill your children.

    Just think: if Florida had not had the Stand Your Ground law, Travon could have murdered George and escaped undetected. No wonder the racists want the law repealed.

    Not unlike Cindy Sheehan, Treyvon’s parents and associates have had their grief hijacked by racist haters with an agenda, and their denial of who Treyvon was and his own culpability in the events that led him to be shot while understandable is not a healthy thing by any stretch.

    Of course if Treyvon had stood his ground (or laid on it) and killed his assailant while being brutally beated to death by a Democrat socialist Nazi skinhead or Chicago gang-banger, I suppose they would have a different view – but then such a case would never have been elevated to cause celeb status in the first place, and no one would have cared.

    Let me get this straight, {The set of bills, collectively called Trayvon’s Law, include proposals
    that the organization believes would end racial profiling [In which there was none evident in this case], repeal stand
    your ground laws [which were not applicable to this case], form effective civil complaint review boards to
    provide oversight of police misconduct [which none was shown to have taken place], improve training for community
    watch groups {which George Zimmerman received and followed up to the point he turned his back to Trayvon and was attacked], mandate law enforcement to collect data on homicide cases
    involving people of color and address the “school to prison pipeline.”[ now this one may apply to Trayvon]}

    I concur with Joyce Mellon in the FB comment above. It seems also that the “stand your ground” law worked perfectly, as it was intended to. I would like to ask benjamin crump why he didn’t address the National association Of White Journalist also?
    Ri~ght…………There isn’t one!
    Aren’t we[emphasis added]special!

    Morons are out for their 15 minutes of fame again.
    This has gone beyond stupid, and really shows the narcissistic attitude of the NAACP.
