Make a Choice – (War Or Peace) – Trayvon Martin
Funny man Kain Carter, also known as “HotDamnIRock” often comes with compelling topics for his anticipated Youtube Channel. From break-ups to bad breath, the end of the world to religion, Carter also seems to take notice of the news and events around the world to comment on. This time, he did-so with the most compelling debate today– Trayvon Martin. In this short, but relevant and tear-jerking skit, Carter presents both sides of the matter within much of the African-American community today. Retaliation versus Justice.
Carter’s video was most likely inspired by the New Black Panther’s $10,000 bounty on the head of Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman. With Trayvon’s parents — Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin — publicly denouncing their approval of the bounty, some are torn about the way to seek the justice we have yet to catch any glimpse of since his death. As pressure begins to build, tempers begin to rise, and anger slowly creeps beyond hurt, all we can hope is that we at least get to see the man arrested within the next few coming days. The outcome of this tragedy ultimately will lay in the hands of the courts or the hands of another killer.
Whose Side Are You On?
Also, Kain Carter chose a great background track for this piece. One of my favorite songs in the world. If you’re familiar with “Set It Off,” you know it too. Listen to the lyrics and think about the video… what do you say is next on the agenda for justice for Trayvon Martin?
