Sybrina Fulton is the mother of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old high school student who was shot and killed on Feb. 26, 2012.
***The trial of Trayvon’s accused killer is expected to begin on June 10, 2013.

Remember when George Zimmerman sought donations from his website? You know, the one that looked like it was designed in the mid-’90s, and that proudly featured a photo from a vandalized black community center? Turns out Zimmerman raised $200,000.
Zimmerman’s lawyer Mark O’Mara appeared on Anderson Cooper 360, where he said that he just learned about the money on Wednesday and will inform a judge Friday. Zimmerman has shut his site down — he’s been barred from engaging in any social media — but O’Mara said he will start a new defense fund for his client.
O’Mara admitted that if the judge had known about the $200,000 Zimmerman raised, Zimmerman’s bail might have been set higher than $150,000. The defendant, who faces second-degree murder charges for shooting Trayvon Martin, was released from jail earlier this week after paying 10 percent of the bail.
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH AMERICA.

I’m just gonna let that last line sink in: “There is a significant segment of white opinion that continues to find efforts to combat racism more objectionable than the racism itself.” (via ethiopienne)
On racism and why “colourblindness” towards race is bullshit that doesn’t help anyone.
thisisnodream submitted: “I accidentally came across an Oregon-based conservative radio personality’s Facebook page, and even though I knew it was a mistake, I started reading some of the comments made by his listeners. I just had to share this one because it’s so ridiculously fucked up.”
I’m sorry, OBAMA baited women by legislating birth control? Um no. Just all of this is wrong in every way. -Jess
Yes, because women and people of colour are being tricked into liking Obama. It’s not like we can think for ourselves or anything ridiculous like that. It’s not like Obama is BY FAR the better candidate in EVERY POSSIBLE WAY. He’s not “baiting” anybody. People vote for those who represent them well. And Obama is representing POC and women better than any Republican ever will, judging by the current playing field.
I mean really he should have been profiling himself instead of all these innocent black males.
Well, there you go.
But no let’s all keep talking about what Trayvon was wearing.
Y’all dun fucked up this time. We won’t shut up until Zimmerman is given a fair trial (which should, in my opinion, land him in jail for life, but that’s up to the court to decide).
