Trayvon Martin era un ragazzo afroamericano di 17 anni.‎

trayvon-martin


Il 26 febbraio scorso, mentre passeggiava verso le 19 in una strada di Sanford, Florida, era stato ‎segnalato alla polizia come sospetto da George Zimmerman, un membro di un gruppo di vigilantes ‎della zona chiamato Neighborhood Watch. Zimmerman aveva ritenuto di segnalare la presenza di ‎Martin perché questi si muoveva in modo, a suo dire, sospetto e perché aveva il cappuccio della ‎felpa calato sulla testa (già, pioveva…). Invece di aspettare l’arrivo degli agenti, Zimmerman aveva ‎deciso di agire da solo… Poco dopo Trayvon Martin era morto, ucciso da un colpo di pistola al ‎petto esploso a distanza ravvicinata.‎
L’omicida invocò la legittima difesa e non fu neanche arrestato, anche perché il Florida c’è una ‎legge sulla legittima difesa – chiamata “Stay Your Ground Act”, ossia “Resta al tuo posto” - che è ‎una delle più permissive degli Stati Uniti e che garantisce l’immunità a chi spara anche solo con “il ‎ragionevole timore” di essere in pericolo di vita o di essere ferito gravemente.‎

A marzo a New York si è svolta una grande manifestazione di protesta per l’assassinio di Trayvon ‎Martin. L’hanno chiamata “Million Hoodie March” perché ogni partecipante era vestito con ‎l’hoodie, la felpa con cappuccio che Travyon indossava quando fu ucciso…‎
Il presidente Obama ha manifestato il suo cordoglio e la sua vicinanza alla famiglia Martin ‎dichiarando: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” …‎
Il processo contro Zimmerman è in corso, ma lui si trova in libertà mentre Trayvon Martin, 17 anni, ‎è sotto terra…‎
Come dice il rapper Jasiri X chiudendo la sua canzone Trayvon: “Il messaggio è che solo la vita ‎dei bianchi è protetta in America”.




It’s Sunday, the God’s day, a day of rest
The NBA all stars are playing next
But right outside that same city
The celebratory atmosphere would change quickly
Who watching the game with me? You know lil Trayvon
Was repping his home town D Wade and LeBron
He had just came up from Miami to see his daddy
Who knew such a great weekend would end badly
In a place where you move because it’s safe for your family
But some people got a ingrown hate for your family
Halftime just a short brake from the slamming
Bout to go to the store lil cuz -- you want some candy?
Bet -- I grab you some Skittles kid
I’ll be right back in a little bit

Paid for lil cuz’s skittles and a ice tea
Walked out the store and felt the chill of the night breeze
It seemed a little colder than before
He didn’t know it was a boy like a soldier in a war
That was watching him clocking him thinking about stopping him
Nine milli cocking them; who’s this nigga walking in my neighborhood?
He fits all the specifics of criminal statistics; he looks suspicious
‎911, what’s your emergency
A black man’s walking through my hood purposely
Stay clam, it’s just little Trayvon
But he wanna be the hero so he put his cape on
George Zimmerman, neighborhood block captain
Loaded Glock strapped in, fake cop has been
Got out the car, ignoring what the cops asked him
They always get away -- this time that will not happen

George Zimmerman didn’t take his Ritalin
Drunk off adrenaline, says he making a citizen's arrest
Trayvon looks at him vexed
I just walked to the store, nothing more nothing less
Just steps from his home, he ignored his request
George grabs him, Trayvon swings and connects
Starts screaming out for help but Zimmerman sees a threat
So he pulls out his gun and he points it at his chest
He fires but he misses; Trayvon pleads for forgiveness
I didn’t do nothing, this is senseless
But George Zimmerman was so vicious
He made sure the second shot hit him; no survivor, no witness
Trayvon never gave his cousin his Skittles
Missed the All Star Game, didn’t see another dribble
And George Zimmerman wasn’t even arrested
The message is only white lives are protected
In America

E intanto a Houston, solo qualche ora fa, un poliziotto, intervenuto con un collega in una casa accoglienza per disabili dove un paziente dava in escandescenze, ha freddato il quarantenne Brian Claunch, disturbato mentale, inchiodato su di una carrozzina con un braccio ed una gamba amputati, perchè lo minacciava con una... penna stilografica!
