Gainesville Man Beaten After Men Shout “Trayvon”

Call this the Obama effect.

Gainesville police are investigating the beating of a 27-year-old man that they believe to have been “racially motivated”.

The man was walking home from midtown bars in Gainesville Tuesday morning when he said he was jumped by five to eight men who yelled “Trayvon” before the attack.

The shouting sounds to be a reference to Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old Miami native who was shot and killed in February in Sanford while walking back to his father’s girlfriend’s house. George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin, has not been charged.

Martin’s case has stirred controversy around the nation. He was an unarmed black teenager who was killed by Zimmerman, who was a Hispanic crime-watch volunteer.

Gainesville investigators told The Gainesville Sun that they believe Tuesday morning’s attack stemmed from the Martin case.

“We do believe that the crime was racially motivated,” Gainesville Police Department spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri said.

Racial coward Eric Holder was unavailable for comment.

Meanwhile, a Sanford police cruiser was shot. Nothing to see here, move along.

    So when will we see indictments of the NBPP, Al Sharpton and OB I Won for incitement to violence and conspiracy?

    Equal protection under the law is officially under the bus.

    You know, these troubled young lads are right, bless their souls.

    We do have a racism issue in America, and it’s getting worse every day.

    You can argue, with some authority, that Obama has done less for the black community and done more to damage race relations in America than any other president in your lifetime.

    Liberals like to praise Obama for being the first “post racial” president.

    They keep using this phrase. I don’t think it means what they think it means.

    What is left out of this account of this crime, is the skin tone of the victim, and the skin tone of the perps. We know why, don’t we?

    It is quite sad to hear that in this day in age racially motivated crimes are still being committed in Gainesville. However, Gainesville investigators made a mistake by publicizing this crime because it will fuel racial hatred.

    I admit that very rarely Black people will attack a random white person for personal vengeance, RARE’Y is it a random white person, these attacks on white’s aren’t attacks on white people, they’re attacks on white’s who are known racists’ in their towns’, I know a few of the white racists’ in my town deserve to be attacked for “no reason” as the news would say but there’s reasons I assure you…
