An unidentified entrepreneur admits he is trying to profit off Trayvon Martin’s death by selling gun range targets featuring the teen who’s death has sparked a nationwide controversy.
Although Martin’s face does not appear on the paper targets, they feature a hoodie with crosshairs aimed at the chest. A bag of Skittles is tucked in the pocket and a hand is holding a can resembling iced tea.
Martin purchased both items minutes before he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in February, according to police.
Zimmerman’s lawyer believes this sort of thing isn’t helping his client. “This is the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility,” says attorney Mark O’Mara. “It’s this type of hatred — that’s what this is, it’s hate-mongering — that’s going to make it more difficult to try this case.”
According to the report, the seller — a prick who wisely wishes to remain ananymous — says the targets “sold out in 2 days.”
There are a lot of real assholes out there.
If I ever see any racist fucker with one of those targets at a gun range, I can’t be held responsible for what happens after that.
If there is hell .. These fools are first
But we live in a post-racial society, y’all! People don’t get off on the thought of killing young Black teens anymore, no! This is just target practice! No racial motivation behind the popularity of the target at all, guys!
