Unbelievable...
This guy is a failure as a parent. His wannabe thug loser kid died assaulting someone in the street. Now he is some kind of expert on the challenges faced by African American males?!? He doesn't have answers. He is a perfect example of the problem.

Even though Obama's ratings are down in the thirties, I think he's more afraid of criminal allegations against him at this point.

Benghazi is really heating up since Obama gagged everyone that survived.
.
Perhaps the biggest cover-up in history.
.
And Trayvon's poor father has unknowingly become part of Obama's plan to keep attention away from that scandal.
.
Obama will stoop to anything to hide Benghazi from the prying eye's of the public.
.
It just makes us want to see more.

Mrs Smith, 72 told the U-T San Diego:I believe that Obama murdered my son.
.
Obama better hide behind Mr. Martin.
He has no place else to go.
I agree with your comment. The Obama administration can not allow a good tragedy go to waste. The Martin family doesn't understand that they are apart of a hidden agenda of redirecting the nations attention away from what really is going on.

This guy is being used as a prop to manipulate the people and drive division between races. And he is completely unaware that this is going on.

I talked to a friend of mine last night for a while. Haven't talked to her in a long time. And we discussed the Martin/Zimmerman fiasco.

She was telling me that the Black community is getting a version of the story that is completely different than what the white community is getting and even more different than what the Hispanic community is getting.

And the driving force between these different community versions, the media.

What IS the background on the Trayvon's father?

Why did he abandon his son to let Trayvon's mother raise him.

There was a history of problems with Trayvon in which his father FAILED to intervene and set him on the correct path.

Early intervention could have solved Trayvon's problems.

And WHO is paying for the hotel stay, food and flight for Trayvon's father? Who funds both parents appearances?

Very interesting article which explains why you think Zimmerman is a racial profiling racist who gunned down Trayvon Martin for no reason.

Read it unless you are afraid the truth might conflict with what you want to believe.

If Black leadership worked half as hard at economic development as they do race baiting, a lot of problems would be greatly reduced.

Obama and lets focus on anything except those things that might lead me to be impeached like Benghai or the IRS scandal. Lets go after Zimmerman. Get right on that Holder.

We will showcase the father of a dead punk but ignore the victims of black on black violence that runs unchecked in nitwit Obamas hometown of Chicago.

If his parents had not allowed Travon to adopt the 'gangsta' attitude promoted by (c)rap 'music' he would be alive today. Bill Cosby was right.

Yep. And every liberal listening to him, in their mind, is saying this to themselves: "Don't laugh...don't even smile...pretend this ignorant yahoo is saying something profound... remember, cameras are rolling... must-not-smile-or-smirk....don 't fall asleep [bites tongue] stay awake...career depends on it!".

What a f*cking waste of time.

Obama will probably give him some high profile job. Like he was a good parent. Look how his son turned out.

Not just his son, but Obama's "son that he never had" - as well as Obama himself! Zimmerman shot the infant Obama. Don't you forget that. But do forget about the infant Obama calling someone a "nasty-ass cracka", punching them in the face, straddling them and beating them severely. That part never happened. Jesus was a pure-at-heart angelic child - and so was Trayvon.(Praise the Lord!)

REMEMBER: Trayvon was wall on his way to becoming President of the United States. Damn that nasty-ass cracka George Zimmerman for depriving us of our SECOND black President!

Maybe ol dad will explain why his kid was a pot head and mixing up his lean drug? Look up the ingredients for lean, the southern hip hop drug of choice. Treyvon had 2/3 of the ingredients in his back pack and his liver test positive for damage caused by the drug. But we won't hear about that in the media.

It's amazing that Trayvons sperm donor stepped right up when Sharpton and his race pimps explained to him how much cash he was going to receive. It sure beats working......

Certainly not on HLN, MSNBC, CNN or NBC.....Yeah, Nancy Grace won't be mentioning that at all.....counter to their pro-Trayvon, social engineering....
