MSM & LEFT Continue to Trivialize Civil Rights and Martin Luther King Jr’s Message … Colin Powell Criticizes the George Zimmerman Murder Trial Verdict as “Questionable” in Death of Trayvon Martin
Really, would Martin Luther King Jr. have used the Trayvon Martin case as an example in the ‘I have a Dream’ speech? This is where today’s Civil Rights leaders fail miserably and the MSM simply spews their hateful propaganda. How can they possibly trivialize King’s “Dream” with Trayvon Martin … “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” It’s about “character” … remember that.
On CBS ‘Face the Nation,’ Colin Powell was asked about the implications and fall out of the Trayvon Martin case. Colin Powell stated, “It will be seen as a questionable judgement on the part of the judicial system down there, But I don’t know if it will have staying power.” Isn’t it some thing that when he does not agree with a verdict, it is questionable. Many would say what you have done in your past is questionable as well Colin. No staying power, eh Mr. Powell? The liberal MSM and race hustlers are going to see that it does have staying power as they exploit the events between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin for their own purposes and attempt to pursue their agenda that had nothing to do with the case.
Any one who has any understanding of history, any knowledge of the Civil Rights movement knows that it is a joke to interject Trayvon Martin into the lexicon of civil rights in the United States. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. told us all in was about the “content of one’s charter” … not about the content of your political ideology.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says the jury verdict that freed the killer of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin was “questionable.” But he isn’t sure it will have staying power in the public consciousness.
Speaking on CBS’s Face the Nation, Powell said cases like Martin’s “blaze across the midnight sky” and are forgotten.
As stated at CNN, Powell said Sunday he’d like Obama to “be more passionate about race questions.” Huh? Maybe the question should have been that should Obama be more consistent when it came to race crimes and not just come out and say, “if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon” and then be silent when there is black on white crime and even more noticeably, black on black crime like the killing fields in Chicago. More passionate about race questions? How about he care about the education and unemployment rates of blacks in America? More passionate about race questions? How about this president not pit blacks vs. whites? I would dare say that Martin Luther King Jr. would have an issue with this “Divider” in Chief.
