He does have a story to tell fuck her she drops a kid a few years later you bail kid has to grow up tough no dad at home.
17 yr old gets sent to you cause mom can't handle him. What does a good dad do? Go out with girl friend drink it up come home late don't check on kids find out in the morning kid is not home.

Yeah, that plus the drugs, fighting, and school problems really shows he has insight into raising children.

Very appropriate. Obviously the single biggest threat to young black males in this Country in being killed by half-Hispanic men. It is an epidemic and if they can just focus enough time and attention on that singular issue the plight of young black men will be resolved.

Nope. Tracy found a new squeeze in Alicia Stanley. Divorced Sybrina and moved in with her. Eventually married Alicia. Stanley had guardianship of Traygone from when he was 3 to somewhere in 14- 15 yoa. All those happy pictures of 12 year old Traygone were with Alicia Stanley. Tracy then found a new squeeze in Brandi Green (neighbor of GZ and resident of Retreat on the Lakes) about two years before the SD shooting. Moved Traygone back in with Sybrina when he was around 15 so that Tracy wouldn't have to listen to Alicia Stanley bitch about what an asshole he was. That's guestimated to be the pivot point for Traygone on his path to thuggishness. Sybrina kicked him out of her place at least 3 times per Traygone's texting that was on his phone and pulled by MOM. Sybrina was not any significant part of Traygone's life from 3 -15 yoa. Traygone was being passed around to other family members before his final odyssey to Sanford. Was living with an uncle (former Marine) prior to the Sanford trip who hoped to straighten him out before he found some serious trouble. Missed it by that much.

Tracy is/ was a commercial driver/ trucker and I asume stop-in-to-say-hi-occasionally dad. Traydad good about pawning off his spawn on others for them to raise is my guess. The fact that Sybrina was willing to give up parentage of Traygone at three says a lot IMO.

Story of her life really.

Currently, the family is still trying to cash in on their son's death. The settlement they received from the HOA is probably (hopefully) all they will ever get.

Lets see a show of hands. Who thinks they will discuss the actual reasons black males become thug gang bangers, go to prison disproportionately to whites and latinos combined, have mulitple kids with multiple young black girls out of wedlock, seldom become decent father figures, use drugs, etc., etc.

I don't see any hands.

Total waste of time, unless blaming whitey solves the problems. Race baiting will be alive and well at that meeting with the usual suspects blaming everyone and everything instead of focusing on the truth.

Probably not. They got this one on their own I've heard, and don't want any advice or interloping from whitey while they fix up their own house.

Is this where he's going to accept responsibility for his obvious failure as a father??? - probably not, if I were to guess...

How about pointing out the black community's failure in parental and personal responsibility??? - probably not that, either...

That's the whole Progressive philosophy. There's no personal responsibility, only group responsibility and victimhood. The religion of the State can and will assume responsibility for all of your sins.

I though they'd set up a Travyon Martin memorial scholarship fund at Embry Riddle for aspiring African American youth that want to become pilots.

These two FAILED in their duty to raise their child properly and now Congress will seek their advice regarding "Ensuring Our Boys Mature into Strong Men"

It's like asking the pilot of that Asiana 777 for advice on landing at the San Francisco airport



Seriously, what kind of "parent" allows their child to post on Facebook with the username "No Limit Nigga" and feels they have anything useful to advise

So is this actually going to be about the issues facing young black men, or is it going to be about America is racist?



No, I'm not implying that racism doesn't exist or isn't one of those issues, but to hear tell from the race hustlers, it's the only issue.
Link Posted: 7/24/2013 6:36:36 AM EST
If he is humble, he has stuff to teach in regards to the subject. He can show the pitfalls that can befall a young man and share what he did wrong.

Unfortunately, that isn't what will happen. Racism will be invoked and all the blame will be put on others.
