Mitchell: Trayvon Martin's parents deserve justice that is colorblind

The worthless black parents deserve a kick in the teeth. Their piece of black garbage is underground where he belongs.

"The sad fact is, had the hooded Martin been a Mohawk-wearing, tattooed white youth, strolling through the subdivision that night, Zimmerman probably wouldn’t have called the police let alone followed him.

But because so many young black males are involved in criminal and violent activities, black teens who are trying to do the right thing get labeled and profiled right along with the criminals. For example, recently I heard from two irate mothers who said their sons were barred from shopping at several posh stores on the Mag Mile because of incidents involving unruly black teens.

These mothers were incensed that even though their sons attended a prestigious private institution, and had money to pay for their purchases, they were not wanted. Frankly, I still have to remind myself that not every black teen wearing a hoodie is a threat."

"Trayvon Martin's parents deserve justice that is colorblind."

As do George Zimmerman's parents.
