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”.


Raining in the water
Waiting in the water to run
Raining in the water
Gotta find a trouble to fall down

No justice, Zimmerman is a racist
A child-killer, Florida tolerates it
He a wanna be cop, I swear
He dialed 911, forty-six times in the past 8 years
6 since last year, to no avail
When ever he call, he complain about a black male
Trayvon was buying Ice Tea and some skittles
Zimmerman chased him to his death with a pistol
How can you scream self defense
When you had nothing to defend yourself against
Dispatcher told him not to follow, he pursued
With 9mm and called him a fucking coon
A coon is short for raccoon
In the slavery days that's what they called black dudes
Whoever don't help is guilty (why?)
Cause he cried for help, his last words was "Help me"

Raining in the water
Waiting in the water to run
Raining in the water
Gotta find a trouble to fall down

The Florida they got a low course stand your ground
Which put a 17 years old young man in the ground
Geraldo said, black kids shouldn't wear hoodies
Compare a hoodie to a killer, how could he
Sean Bell ain't wear a hoodie and they still shot him
Dialo didn't wear a hoodie and they still shot him
What's wrong with Geraldo's brain
The Ku Klux Klan wear hoods ain't nobody complains
Let them keep killing our kings we have no future
Vigilante shooters they say since it happen
Skittles made money in stock my applause
I hope they donate some of that money to the cause
Obama stepped up sold the al shapner
RIP Trayvon Martin
Police chief Bill Lee, justify the murder
Then he stepped down from his position no more further

Raining in the water
Waiting in the water to run
Raining in the water
Gotta find a trouble to fall down
Raining in the water
Waiting in the water to run
Raining in the water
Gotta find a trouble to fall down
