Hip-Hop Community Reacts On Twitter To The Zimmerman Verdict

Trayvon-Martin-George-Zimmerman-620x457

Just moments ago, Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman of charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter in a case that captured the attention of the nation and will undoubtedly be imprinted in America’s history. The jury of six women deliberated more than 16 hours over two days until nearly 10 p.m. on Saturday(July 13) when they found that Zimmerman justifiably used deadly force. Here is a look as hip-hop artists react over twitter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UPDATE: Here are some more tweets the morning after the Zimmerman verdict

  • Jack

    I think it’s cute how they used an old photo of Trayvon at the top rather than the more current thug, gangster pics of Trayvon. Like the pic of him blowing “weed” smoke, or wielding a new gun he illegally got. Just shows how biased the mainstream media really is. But what’s to be expected when it’s directed by the government on what to report behind the scenes?

    • Another-Trayvon

      fkn goofy. ill get head from ya momma wit a jimmy u fk nigga

    • Ronald Jack

      It doesn’t matter what picture they decide to use. He wasn’t doing anything illegal. You shouldn’t have to look a certain way to feel safe in this country.

    • Stop Stupidity

      @ Jack…I don’t care if he robbed a bank 6 weeks prior to when he was shot, the issue in this case was that he was not doing ANYTHING illegal when he was walking home. I wonder what we would find in your past? Would it be okay to shoot you and kill you based upon what you have done or based upon presumptions of what you might do in the future? Don’t be stupid with your comments… before you judge consider this.. what would your position be if your son or loved one was in Trayvon’s place?

  • AnimalsAndPrimates

    Face it, these racist african wannabes (decendents from degenerate slaves that even trash Africa didn’t want) just wanted REVENGE, not justice. Justice is a system in which all the evidence is presented and the jury reaches a verdict. That happened. If you don’t like it, then you didn’t want justice, you just wanted revenge, and if you do anything about it, YOU ARE THE VIGILANTE AND I HOPE YOUR WORTHLESS ASS GETS SHOT IN THE FACE FOR IT. Better yet, if you think it’s so bad here, get your wannabe ass on a boat and float your sorry filthy ass back to that hellhole called Africa and see how your “bruthas and sistas” greet you… with an AK47 to the face!! We don’t want you and they don’t want you. Guess whose fault that is?? YOURS!

    • Marshall Law

      I’ll go back to Africa when your wet dog smelling white brothers & sisters leave.

    • Another-Trayvon

      go shoot up a school. I never met you and I know your an agry lil whiteboy. kill yourself. internet big mon. say dat in da hood see wat happens pussy hoe

    • manic4life

      your a disgrace and your disgusting. I’m white and I am astounded at what has happened. We need revolution, and the dogs like you are the ones that we will run down first. We cant be stopped

    • Ronald Jack

      You talk about America like this land belongs to white people. You just entirely ignore Native Americans and the contributions blacks have made to this country.

    • Stop Stupidity

      @0503ef6c40f0659a8e651ca010768c1a:disqus… Honestly I don’t know why I am taking the time to respond to your comment, because it is clear your ignorance supersedes whatever intellect you may have. Its troubling to see that people like you still exist in the world today. I wonder what you would think of the Justice system if your mother or sister or yourself even was killed by a stranger who profiled them as being a criminal? I wonder how you would react if your loved ones were killed by a drunk driver and the Justice system acquitted them because there wasn’t enough evidence? Becareful of the words you speak because you may die by them, what you put in the universe for someone else to reap, you may reap yourself.

  • jrwalker

    @jack what does it matter what pic is used. It doesnt make a difference

    He’s dead for no reason, and weak coward got away with it.

    And you smoke weed so you a thug too. well internet thug

  • lukenukem

    @AnimalsAndPrimates Go to fox news with that s**t. Aint nobody tryna hear that. numb nuts

  • AnimalsAndPrimates

    @Jack
    When OJ got off for murder it was FUNNY… now because it was a Hispanic guy, it’s a TRAVESTY?

    Typical hypocrites. Nothing is EVER a black person’s fault. it’s always da white man tryinna hold a nigga down. No, if we were trying to hold blacks back we would just end welfare. Now THAT would cause riots of massive proportions.

    • Truthfull

      Let me explain something to your simple a$$…

      Black people KNEW and KNOW that OJ did it and it was wrong. The reason most of us ain’t care, don’t care and still don’t give a damn is because OF THE FACT that the outrage whomever Caucasian or otherwise felt and feels about that “travesty of justice”… We deal with that everyday!!!

      In that instance for the first time a black person actually got away with murder… Hell, a rack of us were just as shocked as white folk. We had never seen that sh!t before. But still, we felt some sort of gratification watching white people scream about the injustice of that situation feeling and hoping they’d understand and remember that feeling in regard to us when we say THIS IS WHAT WE GO THROUGH AND LIVE ON A DAILY BASIS. THAT PAIN WAS WHAT THE LA RIOTS WAS ABOUT. MEN ON VIDEO ABUSING A BLACK MAN SOMEHOW WERENT. THATS WHAT THIS WAS ABOUT.

      Name for me one nationally recognized or easily found case where a black man shoots a white man EVEN AFTER AN ALTERCATION and the black man is acquitted due to self defense??? I’ll wait…

      Hell in NYC a guy was called a “n!gger” by a drunk man leaving a restaurant just earlier today, the drunk guy was berating everyone in the restaurant and approaching a screaming at the man and his wife. The man punches and knocks out the drunk, the man is arrested. That drunk was even considered violent but the n word was? C’mon.

      • AnimalsAndPrimates

        “But still, we felt some sort of gratification watching white people scream about the injustice of that situation ”

        Exactly. That’s all you had to say. Blacks don’t care about justice. They want revenge. Period. What stupid ass blacks can’t see, is that EVERYONE has injustices against them. My ancestors dealt with a lot more than blacks in the US ever had to deal with, even during slavery, and they had to deal with it for 1600 years. So fuck you and your “injustice”. All you care about is your own. I am always sympathetic to injustice because of my ancestry, but I have absolutely not a SHRED of sympathy for blacks in the US, who created most of their own problems, refuse to take any kind of personal responsibility, don’t care at all for the plight of others (when was the last time you saw a black stand up for anyone other than a black?).

        You want to know the difference between you and I? If I actually believed that Zimmerman was what all the racists tried to make him out to be.. then I would be yelling just as loudly for him to be sentenced and that’s a fact. You, on the other hand, don’t care about “justice”. You just want revenge and nothing short of the death penalty would have been good enough for you. Where I come from, we call those kinds of people BIGOTS. You just happen to also be black and racist too.

        • Truthfull

          How cute. You finished with your poorly articulated rebuttal? Funny how you honestly believe that your plight is anything near what the plight of any person YOU’RE NOT.

          When did I say blacks own the rights to injustice? I simply stated that in the end you can’t ask a repeatedly raped and molested child to feel pity when they see their molester taken advantage of one time. Its the same way racist and conservative get mad at black people for voting for Obama like they didn’t have EVER SINGLE DAMN President before.

          You champ are the epitome of ridiculous and I pray you’re simply a troll and not as unintelligent as you undoubtedly make yourself seem.

          • AnimalsAndPrimates

            LOL good call, yeah. I’m a troll. But not for the reasons you might normally suspect.

            To be fully candid with you, I do believe that the jury rendered the proper verdict, however, that isn’t because I had a particular bias or goal in mind. Obviously, you don’t know me, but let me simply say I am a skeptic (a true skeptic, not one of the posers). After trying my best to ignore the media trial and proliferation of twisted and spun evidence, my wife and I actually sat through every single minute of the trial and watched it. We are reasonable people, to be sure (if you got the chance to know us, not the “troll” me). I really believe that Zimmerman believed that he was defending himself, and I do believe that Trayvon confronted him because he was both high and pissed off. Don’t misunderstand, though. The real tragedy is that a young man’s life was cut short. He was on a bad path, but many people have come back from such paths to become important contributors to our society, and that is true for people of all colors and creeds.

            However, I cannot and will not condone this kind of blatant behavior. The tweets threatening death on the judge, the jury, and Zimmerman are, to be sure, animalistic and mob-rule trash. That should not stand and people of reason should call them out on it. The jury has spoken, and that’s that. I believe that the verdict was correct, but that doesn’t mean I don’t recognize that racism against blacks exists and I do not condone that at all either.

            And no, you don’t know my ancestry and I’m sure you don’t know the history and wouldn’t care anyway. So don’t you ever dare try to marginalize the suffering my ancestors fought through for over 1500 years.

          • Truthfull

            Since you’re NOW talking rationally as a thinking individual this is what I’ll ask…

            The question is this…

        • Truthfull

          How cute. You finished with your poorly articulated rebuttal? Funny how you honestly believe that your plight is anything near what the plight of any person YOU’RE NOT.

          When did I say blacks own the rights to injustice? I simply stated that in the end you can’t ask a repeatedly raped and molested child to feel pity when they see their molester taken advantage of one time. Its the same way racist and conservative get mad at black people for voting for Obama like they didn’t have EVER SINGLE DAMN President before.

          1600 years… By that time line you could only be Jewish. Only Jewish and Gay people claim their imjustice is equal to that of what blacks went through. FYI, IF YOU ARE JEWISH, I NEVER SAID MY PLIGHT WAS GREATER AS I KNOW NOTHING IN ACTUAL EXPERIENCE OF YOUR STRUGGLE BUT HERE IS WHAT I DO KNOW…

          In the holocaust it has been studied, stated, restudied and stated against that amount of Jewish people that died is about the same amount as those blacks that died in transport thru the middle passage. A.) Although Jewish people have, were and will be persecuted their struggle with exception to the Holocaust was not in modern times equivalent to blacks because Jewish people can “pass” for their Caucasian counterparts. B.) THERE WAS NO SLAVERY OF JEWISH PEOPLE IN MODERN TIMES, ALL THERE’S INVOLVES PHAROAHS. C.) The persecution of blacks and the eventual emancipation DID NOT LEAD TO OUR RECEIVING A COUNTRY OF OUR OWN IN ANY FORM. FYI the majority of Africa is owned by various European countries.

          You argument only has merit if you were Native American and honestly I do not expect a Native American to speak with the ignorance you do.

          You champ are the epitome of ridiculous and I pray you’re simply a troll and not as unintelligent as you undoubtedly make yourself seem.

          • fuck you

            shouldnt you be counting your money you yalmuke wearing, uncircumsised kike mother fucker i wish your grandparents got gassed at whatever camp they were at so your greedy money grubbing ass wouldnt be here

          • Truthfull

            Uh genius IM BLACK!!!
            I was saying IF HE WAS JEWISH.

            IDIOT.

        • fds[mkfmlsgf

          man sit your pasty white ass down talkin bout struggle bitch your pple didnt have shit done to them who enslaved africans? white people did who ran the native americans off their land? white people did who enacted japanese internment camps during the second world war? white people did so you can shut the fuck up about injustice because you dont know shit whitey

      • Sonja

        What Blacks live on a daily basis is killing each other. Your white problems dwarf this reality. If youre a thug, somehow , someday youre going to get shot. Trayvon was not a little innocent angel. He was a fighter amd a Lean head for at least a year. His liver showed toxic damage from Lean in the autopsy even. Stop portraying him as a child which is false. He was a grown man, gun toting drug dealing and consumer with a history of being violent. He got shot while on top of someone, which is assault and calls for self defense.

        • Truthfull

          Yeah and Zimmerman is an abusive, woman beating, rageaholic with an inferiority complex and delusions of grandeur fixated on becoming US Marshal so he can LEGALLY hunt down fugitives.

          Save your ignorance for someone who can’t refute it.

  • http://www.mosquitonet.com/~prewett/ John Prewett

    Blacks disproportionately kill both blacks and whites. Just racism fueling this anger over this particular case. Almost all interRacial violent crime is black perp white victime. Over 90% of blacks murdered by other blacks. But a faction of blacks just can’t help in still wanting to blame it all on whitey.

    • WhoisWill

      But thoses Black that kill other Blacks still go to jail…But George Doesnt?……ONLY IN THE UNITED STATES ..WHERE U U CAN GET 33MONTHS FOR KILLING A DOG AND NOTHING FOR KILLING A HARMLESS CHILD ..White People got the World Fucked up!!!!! ..But a Change is Gonna Happen

      • manic4life

        It’s not white people! It’s the government! Why does skin color always matter?? Blame it on the governemnt, the rich 1 percent who really rule this country

      Well your white brothers & sisters said Zimmerman wasn’t white he was Mexican, when this first happened. Now you honkies are celebrating the verdict. FYI it is whitey’s fault dumb ass ;)

    • titan

      go make that comment on huffington post. weirdo.

    • OTBP

      it is apparent that you want this to be about race….to hide the fact that what is really happening is a first class test case to acquit a person that opposes the existence to people of color…it obvious that it is a very mixed culture in the community that have concerns….I saw Black, White, Latino, and Asian people in the peaceful protest to this verdict…..if someone killed your loved one in similar circumstances…I would hope that you would take the position that the person who has taken your loved ones life would be held responsible for taking that life…but if you are a member of a society of people who’s only goal is to oppose the existence to people of color then you would understand and agree if a person would use the “rule of law” to take no responsibility in murdering your young innocent loved one…..this is not only about the racial makeup of the victim it is about the unfairness of the burden of proof when their is only one side of the story to tell. I don’t expect the system to ever be equal but I suspect that people of color will adapt, and become the defendant more often than the victim and maybe then you will promote changing the law…… history has shown that the people in this country who oppose the existence to people of color have almost succeeded in driving the red nation of people to the level of extinction…..but the black man has endured, and will one day no longer teach their loved ones fear of the ones that embrace opposition to the black race including the very ones that hide behind the badge and a tainted and unjust legal system…..they will be taught the “rule of law”, survival, and life without fear…… get ready for it.

      • http://www.mosquitonet.com/~prewett/ John Prewett

        Seems to be “about race”,,, but really a clash of cultures. Zim representing a culture that favors law and order,… Tray supporters embody the proThug culture. Thug supporters want us all to focus on this case and ignore the disproportionate percent of black perp violent crime that has been ongoing since the “civil rights” era which a faction of blacks interpreted as sanction to criminally attack whitey.

  • Jack Levitt

    Tonight justice was served and America proved it is a nation of laws, not gangster mob rule. The jury has spoken. Get over it and focus on all the black folks that will be killed this weekend in Chicago and Miami.

    • johnnyV

      For all the blacks, just study the statistics for murder rate in the USA, and the incarceration rate in the USA, numbers don’t lie. Therein lies the TRUTH, the white man can’t influence this many humans. It all starts at home, at a young age. In the black home it doesn’t start at all, so you grow up to be a thug on the street and the rest as you know is history. But it is the white mans fault, it’s a spiral the blacks can’t overcome. The sad thing is whites ultimately fund the dysfunction.

  • juicy

    bottom line he was just walking home like kids do everyday. wonder how some of these people would feel if it where there child. just walking down the street. and end up dead.

    • Sonjka

      He was not a child, stop lying. What 17 year old black do you know anywhere that’s still a child? He was a LEAN head, a gun toting fighter , a drug dealer, not a child. He died ON TOP of someone else, that means the guy on the bottom could use self defense. Dont be a fucking MORON.

      explain the OJ trial idiot,,,,, man im glad i was born white!!!

  • Barack Obama

    This thing is beyond race & both BLACKS & WHITES can’t seem to understand. We all knew Zimmerman was going to get off, the whole point of this case was to start a racial war. But you dumb asses are too busy bickering like little school girls like it’s every white person’s fault. Which is far from the truth. It’s not a WHITE thing it’s not a BLACK THING. They want whites against blacks & blacks against whites. And the best way to do that is Broadcast a half white half hispanic dude killing a African American teen. Black teens get killed all the time right? White does the media have to broadcast THIS? Duh, to stir up rage within the black community. They want us to riot & make our selves look extra niggafied. And whites should not touch on black on black crime. Because until I see yo upper class asses in a BLACK neighborhood, you can’t state shit true about black on black crime. Just like I can’t state shit about white on white crime because I don’t live in a all white community. But I’m pretty sure there as many whites killing whites as there are blacks killing blacks. What you see on TV, or read in magazines don’t mean shit dumb ass. Niggaz, get ya head out ya asses & stop making us as blacks look bad, pray for TM’s fam & live your life the best way you can. And whities, until you were there with Zimmerman & TM, you can’t say shit about evidence. You were not in the court room, you weren’t there when they went on break from TV so don’t say shit. Face the fact that someone of your kind took a teen’s life because Zimmerman’s fucked in the head. BTW, Soon we’ll be saying goodbye Constitution & hello Marshall Law. Y’all wanted a second term :)

  • HARLEM

    same brothers out here talkin’ shit about the justice system are the same idiots yellin’ out “STOP SNITCHIN” in the hood. Trayvon Martin death was used politically and the American sheep ran with the ad slogans. the real question I have is, how much money did the cable news network get from corporate sponsors, to televise their commercials during the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman trial.

  • premiumcream

    How are these idiots going to complain about the verdict when 80% of them got rich spewing lyrics about murdering young black men.

      I’m sure they’ll blame it on the inevitable consequence of fortuitous circumstances growing up in a poverty-stricken neighborhood.
