A controversial painting by Michael DAntuono inspired by the Trayvon Martin case. Is it over the line I-A-B? (Credits)

@imnakdjumpme In fact, here is a quote from a descendant of a black confederate soldier who took place in a march to remember the black confederates who fought in the battle:
"I am marching for freedom. The battle flag stands for freedom and states` rights. The U.S. flag is the flag of slavery. It flew over 100 years of slavery, and Native Americans were annihilated under that flag."

"continue to use the symbol to promote racist ideas" I live very deep in the south, and I have yet to see this. I know it does happen every now and then, but most people don`t do this, and I have never experienced it. I HAVE seen southern black individuals wear clothing with the confederate flag though, but I guess they`re using it to promote racism, eh?

Eddy, a core component of the confederate states for their entire existance was the promotion of slavery and inequality. Then they were defeated in a war and some continue to use the symbol to promote racist ideas, so how can you expect people not to think of racism when its still being used today for such ideas? When we see someone waving the nazi flag do you just naturally assume its to highlight their history of humanitarianism?

There are some f`in bigoted idiots in the world. One of them painted this garbage. Zimmerman has Hispanic and probably Jewish (given his name) ancestry. He shot a thug who attacked him, not a small child.

@enolamron No, the artist is being racist. There is no evidence to support that Zimmerman is a racist, in fact, there is just the opposite. The artist is furthering racial division because he knows it will make his `work` more popular. Pulling the race card in a situation where race is an actual factor is one thing, but making accusations of racism based on speculation, and going one step further and taking action on these accusations, only increases racial tension, and is therefore racist in and of itself.

Well, @cityncolour, a lot of people thing the situation itself was racist, so it may very well be. Offensive, though, I don`t think it is, because it`s representing something that actually happened...so it`s not the ARTIST, being racist...it`s the artist suggesting that GZimmerman is

"institutionalized racism was a prominent part of both groups and is rightfully associated with both groups. "

Institutionalized racism existed and still exists outside of the confederate states as well. Should the American flag be considered racist as well? The symbolism behind the confederate flag has nothing to do with racism.

Zimmerman is part Hispanic so you`d never see him in the Klan. He`s not a cop, he was a neighborhood watch captain or whatever the hell they call it. Sh*t like this is exactly why the whole thing is blown way out of proportion. That "artist" is just looking for attention and using this as a way to get famous.

God, I`m so sick of hearing about this kind of crap. Let the courts do their job people. No one on this forum has all of the information required to pass judgement.
Besides, if I hear one more person say "poor innocent little Trayvon. He was only shot because he was black". I`m gonna scream.
The Martin parents are just trying to make themselves into martyrs. Why else would they trademark the kid`s name? Al Sharpton is just trying to stoke the fires so he can hold onto his job. And all of the black people blaming us white people for their oppression, should shut up, get a job (and quit asking me for change in downtown Chicago), get educated and quit portraying your selves as victims. Black people`s biggest enemy is other black people.

Damn, I`m glad I don`t live in Canada. Down here we have what`s call the "presumption of innocence." That means when you are accused of a crime, you don`t have to prove jack $#!+. The burden of proof is ENTIRELY on the prosecution, and from what I`ve seen in the news and in their pooty indictment, they don`t have jack $#!+.

"Old Ollie: The 911 operator told GZ not to follow the kid. GZ shouldn`t have followed him."

There`s no evidence that he did.

"Even if TM was casing the neighborhood (which we really don`t know), once Zimmerman had reported it and he didn`t see a victim in immediate danger, he should have left the rest to the police."

See above.

Everybody talks about GZ standing his ground, but what about TM? Even if GZ has cuts on himself, so what?

The Stand Your Ground law probably doesn`t even apply here. Stand Your Ground means you do not have to retreat if you feel threatened. When you`re on your back, and some guy is on top of you trying to cave your skull in, you can`t retreat. That makes it a simple case of self-defense.

"TM was allowed to fight back a psycho too."

In order for TM to "fight back," GZ would had to have attacked him first. There`s not a single shred of evidence to support that

(from that link)
DeeDee, the girlfriend, talked to Trayvon for SIX HOURS on the phone that Sunday. SIX!
Neither of Trayvon`s parents knew of her existance.
She remained silent, not even trying to phone Trayvon again (despite not knowing he was dead).
THEN, after carefully trying to delete her "on line identity" (lawyers involved obviously) she comes out with "her story".
The day after the shooting? She hardly seems "devistated". The Martin`s Lawyers are obviously telling lies.

@markust: It was raining lightly at the time... just saying.
No one said they were "deep wounds" I KNOW how much even a small headwound bleeds! Seen it!
It`s more like he got bashed into cement, scraped and bruised, but not deeply cut. He DID get stitches the next day at a Doctor`s office.

vv Go read @Baelzar`s link, it`s REALLY long, but crammed full of information!

The Martin family lawyers SEALED the Coroner`s Report? NOT the cops? Why in heaven`s name would they do that? It WILL come out in the trial, so why seal it?
If Trayvon had drugs in his system at the time of death? THAT would pretty much exonerate Zimmerman.

But as the link says: they don`t have to "win" at trial, it just has to happen and BOOM they`re in the MONEY!

"point? He had two small cuts, it just so happens that if you get injured on your head, you bleed a lot."

You are spot on. Head wounds bleed so much blood. For all the talk, the blood on Zimmerman`s head is nothing. When I was a boy my dad let me fire his friends 357 Magnum. Did dad tell his little boy to lock his arms? No, why would he want to do that? The gun kicked back and the hammer slammed into my forehead. It was a short cut but blood was pumping out to the beat of my heart in little waves. There was so much blood that when I got home my mom thought I had been shot. Looking at the picture of Zimmerman`s head there`s not much blood.

Glad you took it in the light-hearted spirit it was given.

Back to arguing: NO Z did not follow M! It seems that M came back to confront Z, not the other way around.
Like I said, the 2+ minutes to walk 70 yards? Not speculation: it`s a fact!

It`s very true: we do not know all the details, the "pro-Z" side has been saying that since day 1!
But the few facts we DO know? Let`s try to include them in our speculations, rather than IGNORE them, OK?

It`s a fact: 911 recordings + cell phone records prove: Trayvon had over 2 minutes, no Zimmerman in sight, to walk 210 feet to his home.
But he didn`t. Z had nothing to do with that.

Thelonius:

I said we don`t know all the details. I`m not saying that Zimmerman is guilty, but all the people on here looking to attack the victim with next to no evidence is silly and mean-spirited. Probably not all of it is racist, but much of it is.

Zimmerman DID shoot Martin, we know that part for sure. So now he better have a damn good reason, it`s not up to Treyvon Martin to prove Treyvon`s innocence, it`s up to Zimmerman to prove he did it to save his own life.

We also DO know that Treyvon may have been tall but he was also a skinny teenager and that he was unarmed. This doesn`t mean he didn`t freak out and attack a man who was following him (maybe he attacked his stalker in perceived self-defense), he might have.

However Zimmerman put himself in that position after a 911 Operator told him specifically not to.

@Armauld: M stopped and `checked out` Z (who was sitting in his car, on the phone with 911) for fully 90 seconds. He then ran away. Z chased him for 13 seconds! Right after the 911 guy suggested he stop, he DID! He then talks for 90+ more seconds, M is long gone.
It`s all on tape, proof not speculation.
One minute later, their fight begins.
In 2 & 1/2 minutes, Trayvon couldn`t WALK home?

@notorious98: Being on a jury is not shaping the justice system. That is a meta concept and the exact reason why we do not allow jury members to change the system they are participating in. The average, or below average public has no business in deciding justice process. They are allowed to participate in the jury, after being hand picked or discarded.

Okay, all you sanctimonious libtards who are convinced that you have the divine power to determine the facts of this case, i.e., that "Martin, an unarmed kid who was buying candy and going home," stop it. Just f`ing stop it.

GZ`s story is that TM was wandering around like he was casing the neighborhood, which has suffered a rash of burglaries. (TM, by the way, was on suspension for POSSESSION OF BURGLARY TOOLS AND A BUNCH OF WOMEN`S JEWELRY!!!)

If TM was really going home, GZ NEVER WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CATCH UP WITH HIM. TM instead doubled back and confronted Zimmerman. He then cold-cocked him, breaking his nose and knocking him to the ground. Next, he jumped on top of him and started pounding his head into the concrete sidewalk. Zimmerman then shot him in SELF-DEFENSE.

Do I know this to be the complete truth? No, but it is 100% CONSISTENT with ALL the publicly available evidence, and NONE of the GZ-murdered-TM scenarios can make that claim.

Okay, the picture is over the line and not terribly accurate.

However, all the people blaming Martin, an unarmed kid who was buying candy and going home, stop it. Just f`ing stop it. I don`t care if Martin was tall, that doesn`t make it okay to kill him, I don`t care if he was wearing a hoodie, that doesn`t make it okay to kill him, I don`t care if he was black, that doesn`t make it okay to kill him.

Please, please, please stop this crap. It is embarrassing. Zimmerman should have listened to the 911 operator instead of chasing a teenager with a gun and trying to be a hero.

So stop embarassing yourselves by defending Zimmerman`s actions. If more info comes out at the trial, so be it, but a kid is dead and that`s a tragedy. Another man will probably waste his life behind bars, also a tragedy.

I love how the media keeps trying to portray martin as an innocent little kid... Trayvor Martin was a wannabe gangster who drated with the wrong guy... Some may say it was a communication problem, but when he doubled back to confront Zimmerman he made his point clear - Zimmerman was in the full right of the law to defend himself.

LordJim, a lot of forms say white (non-Hispanic) for this very reason, because Hispanic people can be white. In the case of Zimmerman, he`s half Hispanic, half caucasian, and can be considered white as a result. Some people just want to emphasize the Hispanic part (even though being Hispanic doesn`t mean you`re not white).

I understand your position Kitteh and I will apologize for saying what I did. This picture pissed me off and I have had a chance to mellow out. I stand on my position that the artist is a douche.

@collegebound, I agree. I just had to post it to discredit the "artist" even further. The artist = suck.

I would say this painting accurately portrays the situation.

It contains no facts other than skittles, just a lot of messed up drama.

Sometimes, art should be grounds for punishment, because it incites anger and retaliation.

OpsAss13, This is controversial art on a controversial subject that popped up on two of my news/social sites that I frequent. Since it is about a heavily discussed topic on I-A-B I thought I would post it for everyone to speak their opinion on it. Good or bad.
It is just the artists impression of what he feels on the case.
A lot of what is in media today or on websites might be viewed as propaganda, but it is not my position to judge, just merely to put it out there for people to discuss. (kinda my job as a mod)
Many people will have different opinions from you or me...this thread will allow them to share it.

@ggolbez Does that look like his head was smashed into the ground? Where is the matted dirt that should be stuck into the blood? If he is bleeding that bad it would have been dirty and smudged. Also, it looks like it is cut in a straight line.

Maybe Zimmy used the hood to clean off the blood?

Jesus drating Christ this stupid ass picture infuriated me.

1.) The Confederate Flag is history and not a symbol of racism. Just because a few dumbasses use it as a symbol does not negate the history of the flag.

2.) Since when is TM a little 5 year old?

3.) GZ was not a police officer.

4.) I have heard no ties of GZ to the KKK.

@Kitteh, way to race-bait so epically in one post. This is obviously ridiculous propaganda. Why the hell would you post it?

ggolbez, point? He had two small cuts, it just so happens that if you get injured on your head, you bleed a lot.

Incredibly inflammatory, biased, and misrepresentative. God dammit, people need to stop making their own judgments before all evidence has been considered and the case decided.

ggolbez really! If he would have kept his hood on his head, it wouldn`t have gotten nearly as scratched up!

yes it is...it wasn`t a cop that shot Trayvon...and that isn`t even how he got shot.

if the painting were truer to the events that are said to have happened i would like it more.

this is more of an ode to media deception and anti American propaganda than to anything that really ever really happened, but this will release the lemmings here for sure

Totally not over the line. This is DAntuono`s interpretation of this specific case. I like the pic.
