Op-ed:
The making and marketing of a lie
By: Diane Sori

Tomorrow is race-baiter Al Sharpton’s nationwide Day of Protest for Trayvon Martin…the sweet innocent black child murdered in cold-blood by that racist Hispanic/white man George Zimmerman.

Oh the travesty of the jury finding that racist Hispanic/white man NOT guilty in the death of that sweet innocent black child…oh how we must grieve along with his parents…parents so noble that when they appear on TV you just want to cry along with them in their grief for their lost sweet innocent child.

Oh has the public had the wool pulled over their eyes by a marketing machine that is one of the best I’ve ever seen for they have taken what I believe to be a 17-year old thug and turned him into a sweet innocent 12-year old child who was needlessly and with malice murdered, and sadly it seems a majority of blacks, and of course the liberal Hollywood elite, have bought into it hook, line, and sinker.

And while NO one wants any child to be killed NO matter their age or what they’ve done or NOT done, it’s time for people to know the truth about that sweet innocent child that Al Sharpton wants the protests for…that George Zimmerman must look over his shoulder for the rest of his life for.

As per Miami-Dade County Public School records Trayvon Martin missed 53 days of school in a school year only half over (meaning in a school year of 180 days, half of which would be 90 days, Trayvon Martin attended school for only 37 days…was truant for the rest); Trayvon Martin was suspended from school three times in the school year only half over (2011-2012) meaning suspended three times within 90 days with the last suspension being serious enough to warrant a full 10 days suspension; on at least one occasion Trayvon Martin was found in school with unidentified ladies jewelry and what officials described as a burglary tool; Trayvon Martin was found with drug paraphernalia in school and disciplined with suspension (Florida schools have a zero-tolerance drug and gun policy); Trayvon Martin had encounters with School Police Officers from the Miami-Dade School Police Department, who were under pressure to find alternate ways to direct black offenders away from the criminal justice system…a system to which Trayvon Martin seemed to be heading.

Trayvon Martin was NOT going to graduate because he failed the mandatory Florida test needed to graduate…he was hardly ever at school, and when he was he got suspension after suspension. This was a young man headed for disaster and failure and everyone in his family knew it.

But to make this all even worse is that within days of the shooting Benjamin Crump and the other lawyers for the Martin family sought court orders to seal the school and criminal records of Trayvon Martin, effectively blocking off Trayvon’s history from public review, media research, and the defense…and why…because they knew this school history could under NO conditions be let into evidence because it would alter their packaging of Trayvon as a sweet innocent child.
.
And oh what a hands on mother Sybrina Fulton was…she did NOT know Trayon had a Twitter account; she did NOT know his Facebook name; she did NOT know about his YouTube account; she did NOT know about his following of Mixed Martial Art combat fighting; and she did NOT know about his home-made movies about street fights that he was in…in other words Sabrina Fulton did NOT know her son for Trayvon Martin did NOT live with her or with his father…Trayvon lived with his uncle Stephen Martin (an ex-Marine) and his wife Aunt Miriam, in Miami Gardens, both of whom were trying to straighten out his troubled life.

It’s my opinion that in the time Trayvon’s parents were absent from his life, his aunt and uncle loved him enough to try to straighten him out…to the point where his mother and father had to be groomed and tutored by PR people to appear as a loving cohesive albeit divorced family on TV and in any and all interviews.

Now, can someone please explain this to me…while I know that everyone grieves differently and has the right to do so, I also know that capitalizing off the death of one’s son is just too bizarre and just too wrong on so many levels…so why then in my opinion is Sybrina Fulton trying to capitalize off the death of her own child…a child she appeared to have little time for.

Trayvon Martin’s image in his ‘infamous’ hoodie and the slogans heard throughout the trial…’Justice for Trayvon’ and ‘I am Trayvon’…now have a trademark…a trademark done by his own mother. Saying she did this before anyone could exploit or profit from Trayvon’s name or use it in a negative way, as well as to protect the ‘intellectual property rights’ for projects that will assist other families who experience similar tragedies (didn’t know that many others had their young adult black sons killed by white men in self-defense)…and that she will make NO monies from this trademark…that I can fully understand if indeed NO monies will be made…but I personally do NOT believe that for a minute.

And if her motives were truly noble why then did Sybrina Fulton bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the housing complex where her son was shot by George Zimmerman. The housing complex, the Retreat at Twin Lakes, had NO doing in Trayvon’s death nor did its association as the Neighborhood Watch group that George Zimmerman led was an independent entity NOT directly connected with the association.

So knowing full well that the housing complex had NO hand in the death of her son…why sue the association…I believe there’s only one reason why and one reason alone…and that’s for money.

Trayvon’s parents tried to reach a settlement through mediation and were offered a $1 million settlement but turned it down claiming it was too low. Eventually a settlement outside of court was reached, and it was for over $1 million (according to the Orlando Sentinel)…what I call ‘blood money’ paid by an association that had NOTHING to do with the death of Trayvon…yet paid on the threat of being sued.

“It is understood and agreed that the payment made herein is not to be construed as an admission of any liability by or on behalf of the releasing parties; but instead the monies being paid hereunder is consideration for avoiding litigation, the uncertainties stemming from litigation as well as to protect and secure the good name and good will of the released parties,” the settlement said.

To avoid litigation…as in if you don’t pay up you get sued…and that to me sounds like blackmail. Profiting off the death of one’s child…and that is as sad as the death itself.

But like I said before, even though the death of anyone is sad, especially the death of a young person, the truth about Trayvon is finally starting to come out and it is NOT that of the sweet little 12-year old in those pictures shoved down our throats for that fateful day George Zimmerman encountered a 17-year-old troubled teen…one failing school…one who did drugs…and one who might, and I only say might have possibly been a burglar…but to Al Sharpton and his ilk none of that matters for they have packaged Trayvon Martin through the magic of advertising into a sweet angel murdered by the white devil who got away with it in the white man’s court, and now a price will be paid for that.

How sad this entire case has become for the guilty have been made innocent while the proven NOT guilty now have a bulls-eye on them that will probably be there for the rest of their life.

  1. A deception has taken over and caused mass division. Turning people to express their hate and commit hate crimes against one another.
    What happen to peace keepers? What happen to the President keeping peace. What is this hiding? What else is into our society under the unbrella of hate & division? There is always a bigger picture with a hiden agenda. Self promoting individuals making a name for themselves at the cost of American Freedom and Peace

    1. We currently have a president who so hates his white half that he is willing to take that hatred out on the majority of the population in this country. Barack HUSSEIN Obama is a race-baiter of the worst kind because he does it deliberately and with malice.

    2. Obama's agenda is to promote racial unrest and then declare martial law. Just why do you think the government has bought up all that ammo, and has worked so diligently to disarm its citizens?

    3. A self hating half-white man... reminds me of a famous self hating half-jewish man.

  2. Sadly, about 3% of the population is responsible for most of the violent crime in America.

    If it had a picture .. and you were to profile it .. you could easily take that 3% and figure out exactly what age group, ethnicity, economic and social status would be from crime statistics gathered from the past 20 years. There is a reason that 'profiling' has been a big no no for many years and decried by the likes of Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton.

    1. Is the man Hispanic,White,a mixture?When something bad happens then it's a white man.When something good is perceived to be happening it is never mentioned.The funniest example to me is that president Obama is the first African-American president when his mother and her parents that mainly raised him are White.So Al and Jessie better be careful,Obama is half White devil.

  3. One thing that has pretty much been ignored OR hidden is the items Trayvon was carrying were capable of being mixed to create a product, I think called Lean. Does anyone know more about this ?

  4. America is a wonderful country ! Where else can you get rich from the death of a felon, stir up more felonies, and avoid prosecution for being a domestic terrorist?

  5. I don't want to seem like I am the only person who knows what losing a child is like. I did lose my daughter in 2004. She was not murdered. I lost a sister when she was 27 years old. She was murdered. I saw and lived with my mothers reactions and she shared mine when I lost my child. I can tell you that neither of our experiences were anything like what I am seeing these parents of Trayvon expressing. Losing a child is the worse thing a person can go through. My mother or I would not be up to TV interviews. It is difficult enough to put food into your body let alone do what these parents are involved in. I have forgiven and my mother forgave the murderers of my sister but will never forget. My sister was not a criminal nor did she ever get arrested. My mother couldn't talk about it even when she was on her death bed. I hope I'm on track here. The actions of the family of Trayvon Martin bewilders me. It just does not seem 'normal'.

    1. The parents of Trayvon Martin, I believe, didn't give a damn about him except when it has gotten them their 15 minutes of fame. Where were they when he was in so much trouble at school...NOWHERE to be found...pawned him off on others. Trayvon's story is sadly typical of many children who become a burden instead of a joy.

      And I am so sorry for your loss and your mom's loss...I cannot even begin to imagine the hell you must have gone through. :(

    2. I just wanna add my two cents here, as a parent....Sending your troubled child to live with family members elsewhere, who could possibly handle him more adequately, teach him differently, and certainly show him an alternate way of living, doesn't at all mean that his parents didn't love him. To me, It means that they saw that he was troubled and needed to do something to make a difference. I think that there are some, more positive, possibilities on why he was sent to live with his extended family, not just the notion that his parents discarded him for being so out of control.

    3. NOT when his parents didn't intervene when he was suspended from school 5 times in less than 5 months...where was the discipline...absent all the way around.

  6. Love your article Diane, I even took the part about his school attendance and the lawyers hiding these facts, and FB it if you don't mind. I believe this not only is to create division and more racial issues, but I also believe that all this nuttiness over this Zimmerman case was and has been a HUGE distraction from what is really going on, behind the scenes! Like Russia and China coming together on July 5, and July 6 th of this yr to practice, with all there ships, bombs, planes, equipment for WAR! Imagine that? Practicing? A MUST watch!

  8. With the tools available today, almost anyone can become a mobile game developer if they really put the time and dedication into their work. But with hundreds of new games and applications hitting mobile app stores literally each and every day, the bigger issue quickly becomes getting your game noticed by the masses of mobile gamers just waiting to play. This is where Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, comes into play: how your games get noticed when people perform basic searches on internet search engines or within the App Store itself. Thanks
