No, We're Not Actually All Trayvon Martin

Posted on the 11 August 2013 by Brutallyhonest @Ricksteroni

An 'artist', and the word is quoted wilfully and purposefully, pursues justice while peddling a bald faced lie:

A graphic painting depicting George Zimmerman shooting Trayvon Martin was unveiled at the Florida ZimmermanShootingMartinMuralCapitol rotunda Friday.

The Miami-based artist, Huong, joined protesters, referred to as the Dream Defenders,  on their 25th day of camping out at the capital as they urge Florida Gov. Rick Scott to change the Stand Your Ground law.

The painting, “We Are All Trayvon Martin” shows Zimmerman firing a gun at a figure wearing a hoodie, but the painting includes a mirror where Martin's face would be to convey that the shooting could have happened to anyone.

I find this disgusting and indicative of the lengths some will go to further an agenda.  This mural is a lie and the artist's suggestion that we are all Trayvon Martin a bigger one.

God forgive me for wishing a pox on all who would purposely foment division while making crap up in the attempt to do so.

A pox.

Carry on.
