We Are All Trayvon Martin Mural

We are all trayvon Martin

I just spotted this and had to share — and Conservative Lady at http://gopthedailydose.com/2013/08/11/we-are-all-trayvon-martin-mural-unveiled-at-florida-state-capitol-ok-wheres-the-benghazi-mural/ brings up a great point, where is the Benghazi mural???

However, that is only 1 of my issues with this inflammatory mural.

Where is the mural commemorating the 4 dead Americans who were serving their country?

The scenario and positioning in the mural are totally false. Even the race baiters don’t claim this is how he died.

Adding Martin Luther King Jr to the mural and adding blood flowing from his head is also inflammatory and irrelevant.

While adding the mirror in place of Martin’s face is an interesting artistic touch and goes with the theme of the title – but again, its meant to inflame people.

And for the millionth time – a story was printed and the picture of 12 year old Trayvon Martin was used. When the media and the prosecution refuse to use a current picture of a crime victim, doesn’t that leave us all feeling they must see a need to hide the truth about the age, appearance and size of the person?

Here is the original article and a picture of the mural is posted above –

The Washington Times Article About the Mural

A mural showing a man shooting another man resembling Trayvon Martin in a hoodie was unveiled Friday at the Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee, a local CBS affiliate reported Friday.

Miami artist Huong, from Vietnam, released the 100-foot mural she’s calling “We All Are Trayvon Martin.” The painting has those words written in several languages, as well as images of civil rights leaders like the Rev Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with blood flowing from his head.

The man pointing the gun looks similar to George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch leader who was acquitted in the shooting death of Martin, and he’s shooting a person wearing a hoodie, much like the one Martin was wearing the night of his death. According to the report, there is a mirror in the mural where the teenager’s face would be so visitors can see themselves in his image.

    Thank you for blogging about this mural. When I saw the story I was appalled that it was allowed in the Florida State Capitol. As you stated, there is no reason for this misrepresentation of events other than to inflame. Outrageous!

    Why didn’t they portray the real picture of TM as he looked today, rather than that of an “innocent” 12 year old. If they did, none of the outbreaks that happened across the country would have happened. Okay, I’ll tell you why, because what TM looked like at 17 was that of a multi-tatooted, stoned on drugs, gay bashing thug. Those so-called innocent items he purchased was to concoct an explosive device he had produced before and told his friends that he was planning on doing it again. I have to wonder if he knew Zimmerman was carrying and thought he could wrest the gun away from him. As Zimmerman said, TM went for his gun..there is no mistaken that but the so-called Media doesn’t want to share that little item, it might ruin their image of a so-called innocent “boy” being killed. Funny, isn’t it, the media doesn’t seem to care about the innocent white boys being beaten by a gang of blacks. It’s not just the one in the bus, it’s others as well. 50 black thugs put a white man into a coma. Where’s the outrage on those incidents? Black mobs are roaming the streets looking for a white person, male or female, doesn’t matter to them,walking or driving alone to beat the bejeezes out of some with disastrous results and constantly stating it was for TM. It’s happening all over the country but not one word about it in the media only white on black but not black on black or black on white. And that is why it will continue, because there is no accounting for black on white crimes. Its as the so-called Attorney General said, “He will not prosecute black on white crimes.” He’s supposed to be the Attorney General of the United States…skin color isn’t supposed to be a factor in any crimes committed against one another in this country. But unfortunately, that’s not the way it is. I blame the media for most of these atrocities for not doing their job in protecting innocent people, black, green, yellow, with purple polka-dots or whites. …
