This “always the victim” mentality is not doing the black community any favors.
Via Washington Times:
Pastors around the nation followed the not-guilty verdict in George Zimmerman’s murder trial with some blunt talk to their flocks on Sunday — many of whom were dressed in hoodies, the clothing that 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was wearing when he was fatally shot in Florida.
“We should be raising Cain because, if we don’t, history has a way of repeating itself,” said Rev. Aaron Williams of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Seattle, Wash., The Blaze reported.
Bishop Victor Couzens of Inspirational Baptist Church in Cincinnati, Ohio, said similarly, while wearing a hoodie, WLWT-TV reported.
“We’re standing with the Martin family. We’re standing with the community,” the bishop said.
Others who participated in “Hoodie Sunday,” a church-driven effort to show solidarity with Martin and his family: the Rev. Tony Lee of the Community of Hope A.M.E. in Temple Hills, Md., WITG-TV reported.
