Words on Trayvon Martin

I was just watching The Last Word with Laurence O’Donnell on MSNBC Wednesday night (March 21, 2012).  Mr. Bonaparte is the City Manager of Sanford, FL, the location where Trayvon Martin, an African-American teenager, was shot down in cold blood by an Hispanic male, George Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighborhood watch person.  Mr. Bonaparte has it in his power to fire the chief of police of Sanford, but he will not.  Mr. O’Donnell and Reverend Al Sharpton provided many reasons and raised many concerns that would make a reasonable, competent individual fire the chief of police, at least suspend him until an investigation is complete.  Instead, Mr. Bonaparte will do nothing.  Mr. Bonaparte is a disgrace and an embarrassment to African Americans.  Yes, Mr. Bonaparte, the City Manager of Sanford, FL is an African American.  He was a complete idiot on television tonight and a profound fool.  I was in shock just like Mr. O’Donnell and Reverend Al Sharpton.  They were speechless as was I.  Therefore, I took to the “Big Black Scholar.”

  1. I too am outraged by this. It does not make sense that unfortunate incidents like this continue to happen. On a similar note, I know of similar incidents in Houston and Dallas Texas in the last 5 years as well. In this case, Mr. Bonaparte needs to do something more than “obfuscate” on national television about such a serious an crucial matter. It is time for those in positions of power to take a stand and move towards acting ethically instead of just “saving face” and jobs. If they are not in positions of power for the good of our people, then they need to step aside and let those who will stand ONLY in the name of equality, true justice, and necessary change to take over…this is disheartening indeed.
