If you are a racist and you missed shooting Trayvon Martin yourself you now have the opportunity to do so. No of course, not the real Trayvon Martin he is dead, thanks to your likes, but close enough:
Racists who supported, and even celebrated, the killing of Trayvon Martin now have the opportunity to shoot the teenager themselves. According to Tampa'sWTSP, an "unidentified entrepreneur," or scumbag, is selling shooting targets of a hoodie with a bag of skittles in the pocket (and iced tea at hand). In case you forgot the "skittles and iced tea" chants accompanying marches demanding justice for Trayvon, he had gone to the store to pick up the candy, and he never came home.The entrepreneur said that sales of this product were great indicating that the urge to shoot and kill black men still thrives in the heart of many Americans. The only thing that used to stop them was the barrier of the law, and now with even that is quickly eroding.
The Stand your Ground law can be easily exploited to become as Van Jones said “kill at will law.” Furthermore, the Stand your Ground law seems to be inherently racist, considering the fact that when applied it is honored discriminately i.e., “white-only,” as Alternet documents and details in another article here.
But even many gun-owners are disgusted one gun-owner says:
"Even though I fully believe Zimmerman was justified in shooting, Trayvon was still a human being and does not deserve that kind of disrespect in death,"Unfortunately there is nothing we may be able to do about this from a legal standpoint. We live in a system that commoditizes death, just as it commoditizes life.
