NAACP admits: Trayvon’s past ‘shaky’
At least everyone can now agree that he was a punk.
Check it out:
The first mistake the president of the NAACP in Norfolk, Va., made was saying that Trayvon Martin had a “shaky” past.
Then Tristan Breaux admonished his membership to react “logically, not racially” to the verdict.
This happened just as the lawyers prepared their closing arguments in the trial of George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon. Zimmerman was acquitted over the weekend.
But the fury in response to the statements from Breaux started coming from Norfolk and around the country right away, and really hasn’t stopped.
WAVY-TV news tracked down a local city councilman:
“To the majority of the African-American community, I would find it offensive,” said Norfolk City Councilman Paul Riddick.
