Trayvoning Meme Emerges on Facebook

Categories: WTF Florida
trayving200.jpg
Can we try to keep our internet memes to fun things like cats and bastardizations of Disney characters? Because the sad, avoidable homicide of an unarmed Miami Gardens teenager should really not be grounds for memedom.

And yet, apparently a new Tebowing-like craze called "Trayvoning" has emerged on the internet.

According to the Grio, a since deleted Facebook page described Trayvoning as such:
Trayvoning is when you
1. get hoodie
2. get skittles
3. get arizona
4. wear hoodie
5. go to florida
6. get shot :) Trayvon Martin was a 17-year-old African American male who was unarmed and got shot by a raciest [sic] mexican american.
No, sorry. Not funny, guys. What's next? Caylee Anthonying? Nicole Browning? Holocausting?

And guess what race the majority of kids who have partaken in the trend belong to?

Reports Hypervocal:
Hurr durr, says the Internet, it's just a joke! Mocking this dead kid is funny, and totally removed from its racial context! Wait, no it's not. Because when provoked, the Facebook group members started spewing their own justifications: They're combating "racism against whites." "White people are becoming more and more oppressed."
As a non-Hispanic, white person who lives in a city where the non-Hispanic white population is under 12 percent, I can tell you that no, white people are not becoming more and more oppressed, and no, "racism against whites" -- as in the societal oppression of white people -- does not exist on any large scale. Actually as a person with half a brain and a bit of common sense I could tell you that.

And in any sense, parodying the death of anyone, let alone an unarmed teen, is not a good way to make any point whatsoever. Unless the point you're trying to make is that you're a dick.

Are you serious?First: "Hispanic" crime is classified as "white" crime, skewing the results. Here in Miami, for example, if a Hispanic murdered a black this would be classified as a "white offender" and a "black victim"...Second: in EVERY CITY, black crime is under-reported. Period. And black-on-white attacks are NEVER reported as "hate" or "bias" crimes. And it will rarely, if ever, be mentioned as blacks attacking whites. In almost every case, the race will not be mentioned... Our mainstream media simply will not report black crimes as "black crimes"...Examples:The mob of 500-1,000 black teenagers that rampaged thru Boston's Inner Harbor?The black mob that attacked and beat white people outside the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in Newark, NJ?The mob of 200-300 black teenagers that attacked whites at the Wisconsin State Fair last year? The black mob attack on the "tourist" (white) in Boston, leaving him naked and unconscious in the street?The large group of black girls who viciously beat a white girl on the train in NYC? (it was all over YouTube)The black ex-con who murdered a white National Guard medic in Atlanta?The black teenagers who "bullied" that white kid in the news recently, who committed suicide?The 4-5 blacks who murdered Mr and Mrs Strait in Tulsa, OK? They raped an 85-yr-old woman!!!The all-black "Bower Boys" gang in NYC who were burglarizing the city?The black mob of 30 or more who attacked the two white reporters in Norfolk?The black mob attacks on whites across Grand Rapids, MI on March 24-25?

And if you are honestly unaware of the massive black-on-black crime wave, then I suggest you hit Google and prepare to be amazed. Because it's out there. Last year in Atlanta, for example, every single person arrested for homicide was black. Is that racism or reality?

In Cincinnati in '09, not a single white person was murdered, but 55 blacks were... by other blacks!Look at Chicago just so far this year!!! 41 blacks murdered in the first three months!!! Look at the murders. Look at the victims and then look at the offenders.

http://www.theblaze.com/storie... 

And I will be happy to show you the DOJ statistics that reveal that 93% of blacks are MURDERED BY OTHER BLACKS!!!<in ...="" ... about="" 2005="" 93%="" and="" black="" by="" homicide="" homicides="" in="" murdered="" of="" single="" single offender="" someone="" their race.="" victim="" victims="" were=""><about be="" black="" four-fifths="" nonfatal="" of="" offenders="" perceived="" the="" to="" victims="" violence="">http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/conte... 

Have a nice day, and better luck next time.</about></in>

Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered. Ninety-four percent of the time, the murderer is another black person. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Using the 94 percent figure means that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks. Though blacks are 13 percent of the nation's population, they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims. Nationally, black homicide victimization rate is six times that of whites, and in some cities, it's 22 times that of whites. Coupled with being most of the nation's homicide victims, blacks are most of the victims of violent personal crimes, such as assault and robbery.The magnitude of this tragic mayhem can be viewed in another light. According to a Tuskegee Institute study, between the years 1882 and 1968, 3,446 blacks were lynched at the hands of whites. Black fatalities during the Korean War (3,075), Vietnam War (7,243) and all wars since 1980 (8,197) come to 18,515, a number that pales in comparison with black loss of life at home. It's a tragic commentary to be able to say that young black males have a greater chance of reaching maturity on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan than on the streets of Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Oakland, Newark and other cities.

Really?... all of these argumentative comments have nothing to do with the story... It's about a group of kids thinking its funny to take the piss out of a poor kid that got shot. Maybe he wound someone up and got shot... maybe he was completely innocent i don't know but now he is dead and that is a waste of life if you ask me. Most of your comments are just about being racist to each other... What's the point??

And I thought that after reading this article, I would be the only one to hate the writer!  Luckily, I was wrong!

As horrific as this meme is, I think it's brilliant.  People are tired of this case, and they're fed up with being scared for not having the same opinions as others (in the case of the Martins, that's the ENTIRE black population). 

Speaking as a white, female American with a born-and-bred Italian mother and pure American father, this era has become the Era of the Oppression of the Whiteys.  We're all evil, horrible slave owners who are all racist and need to be taught a lesson.  This Martin case is only proving that further.

Sybrina Fulton(Trayvon's mother) need to be whipped for being a bad parent .For taking money from the government and for seeking fame and money  by using her son's death .If she had been a good parent her son would not be smoking weed and skipping school. Let me guess her friends and family get free housing and section 8 courtesy of the Sybrina Fulton HOOK UP. Im pretty sure she is going to quit her job so we the taxpayers have to support her and her family my taxpayer money pays her fried chicken dinner and her 23 in rims and jordans for her other criminal son.

Trayvon deserved the bullet. Urban youth need to stop trying to act like gansters . African Americans need to stop using the race card .The only guilty person is Trayvon's mother she was to busy abusing the Miami -Dade county tax dollars she got her job because she is black and on the side she collects food stamps and section 8 (its called the HOOK-UP a black term  .all these black people that work in the government office hook up thier friends and family with government assistance) while her son was busy smoking weed and skipping school.She did a  piss poor job as a parent and in order to cover up her mess she calls the biggest PIMP of all Al sharpton this is a man that uses religion and race for his own personal gain.Al sharpton as usual uses this opportunity to create race tension in his dream to become president of the USA.wake up it will never happen not even his dead mother would have voted for him.Its black america's excuse for everything it hapened because im black you people are pathetic .

Trayvon committed suicide. The dumb kid started a fight with a short Hispanic dude, WHO HAD A GUN. That is suicide.

Trayvon's alleged mother works for Miami-Dade County. That means she is getting pay and benefits from the taxpayers. She should have taught her idiot son not to use drugs and attack short Latin guys. Now she sits at home and STILL COLLECTS TAXPAYER MONEY. Mothers teach your ghetto kids to respect their elders or else.

its not an "Avoidable homicide" if a man tries to beat you to death. Unless you are suggesting Martin could have avoided beating another man then never mind. 

Arrest mom Trayvon

Trayvon's mom and dad should be arrested for child neglect. His mom was so busy getting taxpayer money she didn't teach her dummy son not to mess with drugs and not to deface his school. How many times did the dummy Trayvon get suspended? Picking a fight with a short Hispanic guy was just another stupid move. Hello? Parents.

Dumb junior gangbanger Trayvon attacked the soft Hispanic guy. Dumb. Idiot Trayvon with the stupid name was caught with drugs. In a school. It was inevitable he got shot and killed. Didn't the punk's parents teach him anything? Gesh.

If you were not there during the situation, then stop talking about the details as if you were. We do not know who first started the fight. All we know for sure is that Zimmerman stepped out of line by even approaching Trayvon instead of letting the cops handle the situation. Since Trayvon is not here to defend himself, the details of who hit who first, in my opinion, shouldn't even be discussed. It's sad to see some of you all that have never even met the kid, judging him to be stupid and a thug. This is why we have the issues we have today.

Maybe the idiot Trayvon picking a fight with the shorter Zimmerman and getting hisself shot dead will enourage other stupid kids to pick fights with short Hispanics? More stupid kids will die.

He was not innocent he deserved the bullet .he was a weed smoking school skipping wanna be fake thug His mother is a abuser of GOVT assistance. Zimmerman's only mistake was that he called the police he should have shot him from the begining he probably stole the skittles and arizona iced tea

98% of  BLACK PEOPLE DON'T CARE  what happened to Chimpazee Trayvon .But they see it as an opportunity to attack White people ,to take advantage of the race card. Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson (RACE PIMPS) see it as an opportunity to be on TV and make some money.Washed out no talent so called actors singers such as Spike Lee and Tyrese use this incident to try to get back their 15 mins of fame .and the ret of black people use it as a way to be seen as the victim so they can continue abusing the Govt assistance programs   food stamps secion 8 anything that is free .i hear black people all the time joke about it .Martin Luther King fought for their rights but they spit on his sacrafice ever single day .

If smoking weed and skipping school is worth being shot for no reason over then you better start shooting about 30% of the white population because that is the amount of kids who smoke pot and have skipped class.

 One does not need to "be there" to see the overwhelming amount of evidence point to Martin trying to beat another man.

Or maybe George pinned him down and beat his knuckles with his face?

I cant even get into my walmart without being hassled by the black man for change. I used to always think they spent that money on drugs, then they would show these letters that supposedly prove they were collecting for charities. One day I rode bikes with my mexican friend there, and he walked over to a circle of blacks around HIS mexican friend, and that guy was sellin weed and dope to all the niggers , that i and my mother used to give change to. Im a white hispanic, so they just looked hard at me.

I used to hate like a lot of people on this comment thread.  I just got fucked by plenty of white people (my own race) enough to know that all humans are just as fucked up.  Any race will fuck you for a dollar, for a chance to do better than you. Don't believe me?  Go win the lottery and watch how many pure white bloods will come like vampires and fuck you.
