Jesse Jackson: Trayvon Would Be Alive If He Wasn’t Suspended or Something

Posted by on Apr 02, 2012 at 8:25 am

This is “Reverend” Jackson’s one-size-fits-all solution to what ails black teenagers. Too many of them are being suspended from school.

Speaking at the rally Sunday, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said the case was about ending all types of racial profiling — not just in criminal cases, but by banks, insurance companies and in the job market.

“End profiling now,” the civil rights activist said to applause.

Jackson also said Martin’s case illustrated the high number of black students who are suspended from school. A report issued by the U.S. Department of Education last month found that black students are more than three times as likely as their white peers to be suspended or expelled. Martin had been suspended from school for having a baggie that contained marijuana residue shortly before he was killed.

“We must stop suspending our children,” Jackson said, asking the crowd to repeat:  “Invest in them. Educate them.”

So what are they supposed to do, just let them victimize other students? What about the rights of teenagers to get an education free from violence?

    He would also be alive if he STAYED AT HOME WHERE HE BELONGED. ESPECIALLY AFTER DARK. Trust me, you can actually survive til the next day by going WITHOUT “Skittles or tea”.

    So he’s back to selective statistics? How nice. The least race baiting stunt must not be doing well.

    blacks are 4 times more likely to commit crimes, as demonstrated by their being 13% of the population but 50% of prisoners nationwide

    maybe if they wouldn’t behave like animals they wouldn’t be treated as such

    where were Al and Jesse after their black thugs beat up ONLY WHITE FOLKS at the Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee last summer?

    Trayvon would be alive if he didn’t assault a guy with a gun; that’s the problem with Concealed Carry, it’s not fair to criminals

    Please allow me to paraphrase the Self Appointed Rev. if I may.

    Here’s the reality liberals cannot even remotely fathom!!!

    If Trayvon is NOT suspended from school in Miami.
    Then Trayvon is in school in Miami instead of in Sanford.
    If Trayvon is in school in Miami and NOT in Sanford.
    Then Trayvon would still be alive.

    Notice a pattern here.

    It all started with Trayvon.

    Decisions have consequences (sometime deadly)

    End of story.
