“A party at a local strip club scheduled in honor of Trayvon Martin was called off after a social media backlash branded the effort as insensitive. According to the event flier, which has gone viral, the party at Bentley`s Lingerie Lounge – organized by outside promoters – was scheduled for this past Wednesday as part of their `We Like to Party Wednesdays` promotion.”
I don`t expect common sense and a sense of propriety from a strip club, but this is beyond the pale.To seek to make a profit from a case that is dividing our nation along racial lines is contemptible.
Bentley`s Lingerie Lounge isn`t the only one seeking to take advantage of the killing of Trayvon Martin for their own nefarious goals. We have the spectacle of professional race hustlers like the Rev. Jesse Jackson, and especially the Rev. Al Sharpton inciting violence to keep themselves in the headlines.
In my opinion George Zimmerman is at least guilty of manslaughter, and at worst guilty of murder. It`s an outrage Zimmerman hasn`t been arrested, but it`s only a matter of days before he`s behind bars. The Trayvon Martin killing is being investigated by a special prosecutor and by the FBI, and early next month a grand jury will be convened. And as everybody knows a grand jury will indict a ham sandwich or a bag of Skittles.
There is no need for Sharpton to enflame passions, the American people, of all races, demand justice, and Zimmerman will have his day in court.
The owners of the strip club have come to their senses, and called off the event, let`s hope Sharpton comes to his senses and shuts the hell up.
