Trayvon Martin's Death From Racial Profiling In Vain If Obama Admin. Does Not Intervene (Color Of Law)

"Why Are You Following Me?" Trayvon Martin asked George Zimmerman just before Zimmerman Shot Him DEAD In Cold-Blood for NO Reason.

How Often have BLACK Men, Women & Teens had to ask that same question to Store Security Guards & Police Officers when walking down the street, in Retail Stores, Malls, & Super Markets, etc., because we were being followed just because of our Skin Hues?

Recently while interviewing Trayvon Martin's Parents on NBC's "Today" Show, Host Matt Lauer read an Official statement from the DOJ saying they may NOT be able to help in this incident.

Why not???

The Federal Gov't can do anything it wants to do in this Country.

Yet any time an incident has something to do with BLACK people & Racism, Pres. Obama usually punts the issue back to State Authorities.

Why does Pres. Obama feel as though just because he is a BLACK President, that he can't act on behalf of BLACK People who are Discriminated against daily on a broad scale in this country?

Instead of attempting to punt this case back to Florida State Authorities who will just sweep it under the rug because Trayvon was BLACK, the Obama Administration could very well use this Tragic yet Historic event as a Teachable Moment regarding eliminating Racial Profiling, Enacting Reasonable Gun Laws, Reforming the American Criminal Justice System & help to eliminate Widespread Intentional Employment Discrimination.

i.e., Enforcing Civil Rights Laws for EVERYONE Not just Gay People!!

If Trayvon Martin were a White, Gay Kid (Tyler Clementi) who was Murdered as a result of a Cyber Bullying Hate Crime, I'm sure Pres. Obama's Administration would get involved,


If Trayvon Martin were Amanda Knox stuck in an Italian Prison I'm sure his Administration would become involved,


If Trayvon Martin were a Jewish Kid who was Shot I'm sure his Administration would become involved,

so why not help Trayvon's family too?

Why won't Pres. Obama publicly stand up for BLACK Americans?

He wants our Votes but he refuses to stand up for us.
That is not right.

Please Understand I'm NOT bashing Pres. Obama or his Administration.

In Fact he still has my support this Fall.

I just want to know why he won't stand up for BLACK Americans as it relates to Racial Profiling, Wrongful Execution (TROY DAVIS), Intentional Widespread Employment Discrimination, Voting Rights, etc.,

Trayvon Martin was an Innocent, Unarmed, Non-Violent, BLACK Boy struck down in the Prime of his Life while returning home from the neighborhood Store by a Zealous, Trigger Happy, Self-Appointed, Unpaid Community "Rent-a-Cop" with an obvious disdain for BLACK Youth.

Prior to Murdering Trayvon Martin in Cold-Blood for NO Reason, George Zimmerman had previously called the local Police & Sheriff Dept 46 times in 15 Months.

On most of those 9-1-1 Calls Zimmerman frequently reported that he saw BLACK Youth in his community & always Accused those BLACK Youth of Trespassing, Looking "Suspicious" or Attempting to Break into one of his Neighbor's Residences.

Since George Zimmerman was NOT a Professional, Trained Police Officer or Security Guard, I would think calling the Local Law Enforcement Authorities 46 times in 15 Months, frequently mentioning BLACK Youth in those phone calls could Constitute as Acts of Racial Profiling.

After George Zimmerman Shot & Killed Trayvon Martin in Cold-Blood for NO Reason, the Sanford Police Dept. did NOTHING to Conduct an Official Investigation, nor did they even Arrest Zimmerman.

To make matters worse the Medical Examiner performed a Drug Test on Trayvon's Corpse but the Police did NOT perform a Drug nor an Alcohol Blood Test on Zimmerman.

It doesn't require a degree in Rocket Science to clearly observe that Trayvon's Civil Rights were completely Violated in this situation.

However the Sanford Police Department may have also Violated the "Color Of Law" Legal Doctrine.

So Why won't the Obama Administration help Trayvon's family just as they helped Amanda Knox's family & Tyler Clementi's family?

I don't mean pretend to "Help" for Publicity & Political Media Coverage.

I mean Help for Real!

Pres. Obama We (BLACK Voters) Stand With You But We Need YOU To Stand With Us (BLACK Community) Too.

Feds face challenges in Trayvon Martin case

The Department of Justice is reviewing evidence in the shooting death of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Florida, but prosecuting Zimmerman at the federal level could be an uphill battle, reports CBS News senior correspondent John Miller.

Martin, 17, was killed last month during an altercation with Zimmerman, who followed the teen as he walked through a gated community in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman, 28, has claimed self-defense, though Martin was found to have been carrying only a cell phone, a bag of Skittles and a container of iced tea.

Zimmerman has not been charged in Martin's death, outraging Martin's family and many in the community.

"Can't be self-defense. No way. What's he gonna attack him with? A pack of Skittles?" Tracey Martin, Trayvon's father, told CBS News.

Under growing public pressure, the Department of Justice announced Monday that it would conduct a review of the case, but added the qualification that the "government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person acted intentionally with the specific intent to do something which the law forbids."

Complicating matters, Florida state law allows a person the right to stand their ground and use deadly force if they feel threatened. The Justice Department recognized that, stating that "negligence, recklessness, mistakes and accidents are not prosecutable under the federal criminal civil rights laws."

The federal government can't prosecute Zimmerman for murder or manslaughter, so any prosecution for civil rights violations must prove Zimmerman took Martin's life because of prejudice.

Zimmerman's family denied he is a racist.
