You know cynicism is setting in when details like this just make you laugh out loud:
The mother of Trayvon Martin has filed two applications to secure trademarks containing her late son’s name, records show.
Sybrina Fulton is seeking marks for the phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon,” according to filings made [way back in March 2012, almost immediately after the February 26 shooting] with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Apparently the over $1 million Martin’s parents looted from the HOA of the development where his attack on George Zimmerman occurred wasn’t sufficient. No amount of unearned wealth ever is these days.
This entire contrived spectacle is about money; it is about political power; it is about seizing on an excuse to behave like savages. It is not about justice for Saint Skittles or anyone else.
Hopefully the legions of sociopaths out punching grandmothers for Trayvon remember to pay their royalties.
On a tip from Henry.
