Trayvon Martin has become the personification of the sociopathic punk of privileged pigmentation whom it is mandatory that we all revere. This is what happens when you blaspheme against the Church of Saint Skittles:
A sheriff’s deputy was suspended on Thursday after bringing a can of Arizona Ice Tea and a bag of Skittles to work at a Florida county jail.
These items have become deeply symbolic in the controversial trial of George Zimmerman, as they were being carried by Trayvon Martin when he died in Sanford, Florida, in February 2012.
Actually, you don’t make Purple Drank with ice tea; Martin was carrying watermelon fruit juice cocktail. But tea is close enough for the media, especially since it’s racist to say “watermelon” when you are talking about blacks.
Corporal Chris Wood was denounced as “offensive” and “insensitive” for committing this thought crime. His suspension was his first disciplinary action in 10 years of service. Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ive described Wood’s career up to now as “stellar.”
Wood has apologized of course; that’s reflexive in our culture now. But he still has to undergo the humiliation of “sensitivity training.”
On a tip from Wiggins.
