Attend Meeting Of Congressional Caucus On Black Men And Boys

Posted: | Updated: 07/23/2013 6:47 pm EDT

 

WASHINGTON -- The Congressional Caucus on Black Men and Boys is holding its first-ever meeting on Wednesday, and Tracy Martin, the father of slain teenager Trayvon Martin, will be in attendance.

The panel invited Martin to attend the meeting as a special guest, according to a press release. Martin will meet privately with caucus members ahead of the meeting and then stay for its duration. The topic of the meeting is "The Status of Black Males: Ensuring Our Boys Mature Into Strong Men."

The caucus previously announced three speakers for Wednesday's meeting, but did not mention Martin would be there. Expected speakers include MSNBC host and Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson, former congressman and NAACP President Kweisi Mfume, and David J. Johns, the head of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans.

The caucus was created in March and is led by Rep. Danny Davis (D-Ill.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.), both members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Norton's office confirmed that Martin will be giving opening remarks at the hearing.

The meeting comes less than a week after

President Barack Obama weighed in on the not guilty verdict in Martin's case and put the spotlight on the nation's struggles with racial bias toward black men and boys.

"There are very few African-American men in this country who haven't had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store," Obama said Friday. "That includes me."

I totally misread the title of the article. I thought it said he was in a crash. Can't say that I wasn't a little disappointed when I read the story.


The story was a hoax.  The officer is apparently a Zimmercum guzzler who called him AFTER he called in the accident.  It was totally a PR stunt.


Wow no shame huh

Is there a police 'report' on the incident yet? I do find it odd no video/photos/eyewitnesses/cops have come out.Geek

Still think it is fake/staged as heck.

Family Rescued by George Zimmerman Backs Out of News Conference

By MATT GUTMAN and CHRISTINA NG | Good Morning America – 1 hour 15 minutes ago

RELATED CONTENT

The family rescued by George Zimmerman when they were trapped in an overturned SUV canceled a scheduled news conference today and is pleading for privacy.

Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of Dana and Mark Gerstle and their two children, who were trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla., about 5:45 p.m. Thursday, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The Gerstles were expected to hold a press conference today at the office of Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara, but cancelled a few hours before it was supposed to take place.

"They have expressed to us that they are not comfortable doing media interviews at this time and they continue to ask for privacy," the Seminole City Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, said the family had asked to speak, but then got concerned about the anger surrounding the controversial verdict.

"The family called because they wanted to address the media. I knew that if we did it in an organized way, it would help them get back to a normal life.. But they called today and said they were more worried about blow back from saying anything that would be favorable to George, and decided they did not want to do any media," Zimmerman said.

The family could not be reached for comment.

Zimmerman has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin and his acquittal prompted a flood of negative reactions and dozens of protests across the country. Zimmerman as well as his parents have received death threats.

The Thursday crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, police said, less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin.

By the time police arrived, two people - including Zimmerman - had already helped the family get out of the overturned car, the sheriff's office said. No one was reported to be injured.

Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after speaking with the deputy, police said.

Sooooo Zimmerman spots this overturned vehicle, yet no other passersby spot Zimmerman w/the over turned vehicle?

Interesting.

One of two things happened...
1. This was staged...meaning, the unhurt passengers were in on it...

2. O'Mara made a deal with the pigs to be informed on the whereabouts of next accident so Zimmerman could act as the savior.

Criminals are so predictable.

He reallly needs to sit down somewhere. His compulsion to 'help' is a public danger and will probably shorten his life. I swear I would NEVER let him touch me.   
 
I can't get this movie out of my head.....
