College names anti-racism award after Trayvon Martin

Trayvon Martin, the teen shot and killed in 2012 during a fight with a neighborhood watch member, is being honored posthumously by Providence College.

Ignoring the absolute dearth of evidence indicating his alleged killer – also a minority – was motivated in any way by race, the college announced the creation of the Trayvon Martin Award for Social Justice.

According to the school, one student and one staff member will receive the award for a perceived dedication to fighting racism.

Zimmerman has always maintained he acted in self-defense and this award was created before the facts of the case had been presented at trial.

None of that mattered to Dr. Julia Jordan-Zachery, who spearheaded the award project.

She has often referenced the Trayvon Martin case on social media and in weblog postings and said in a recent interview she has no doubt racism was behind the murder.

According to Jordan-Zachery, “some people are not consciously aware of what they’re doing but they’re responding to narratives around race,” adding that “while I can’t speak explicitly for Zimmerman, I would guess that this was racially motivated.”

This woman has the uncanny ability – one found exclusively among leftists – to find racism where there is no indication of its existence.

Such race-centered illogical ideology is responsible for stoking the hostility it ostensibly seeks to combat. Automatically assuming minorities are victims of white oppression and hate serves only to make the vast majority of decent, moral Caucasians skeptical of these race-baiters’ true intentions.

  • award for that POS really he started a fight with someone that was armed and lost…. and NOW He is where he belongs….. Pushing Daisy s

  • This entire episode has been manipulated to the max in the name of inflaming the public, and bottom-line profits for the media. An award for a person that “started” the physical fight is not grounds for this. Instead, he chose to jump on Zimmerman and proceed to pound his head into the cement. Is that the act of an anti-racist? No. Had Trayvon walked away instead, he would still be alive. And Martin was no angel either. One of his friends who called himself “no_limit_ni_ _a, actually talked about Trayvon and their getting high together. Zimmerman may have caused the non-physical confrontation, but Trayvon started the physical beating. What was Zimmerman supposed to do, let Trayvon continue to beat him to death, or maim him? I don’t think so. Zimmerman did what he had to do to end the beating he was taking. Flat-out. Two wrongs don’t make a right, and when Trayvon pounced on Zimmerman and started beating his head into the cement, that was the second wrong.

  • Police by the school. I am not trying to say this was a good shooting…
    I am not trying to say this kid deserved to die…I am saying…the media in the USA is controlled by liberals who twist and distort what you see and hear in order for you to see things their way.
    Not a single paper has printed RECENT photos of this kid…because…it would not keep your interest in this case… Not a single paper will admit that this kid was a marijuana dealer…his friends on Facebook all say he had the “best plants”…not a single paper will show you any of his recent photos where he shows off a mouthful of gold teeth….all of his tattoos…not a single paper will tell the news like it really is….and NOT how they want you to think it is…
    President King Obama…looked at the FIVE year old photo the media chose to show the Nation…and said…”If I had a son…he would look like Trayvon” So from that comment…should I assume you did not bother to look for the facts in this shooting..or should I assume you want a son who is a 17 year old drug dealing, gold teethed thug whose name on one of his Facebook profiles was “wild nigga”…who ‘finds” jewelry and burglary tools on the way to school ?

  • This cow has been milked dry & the milk in the bucket is soured….Is there that much lacking in creativity at Providence? Couldn’t they find a way to ‘honor’ him? (to me) This brings negative thoughts of the events, rather than honor… Are they are unable to focus on uniting rather than dividing a Nation? If I was looking for a college, I think I might be scratch this college off of my list.
