Jamie Foxx and Cedrick the Entertainer are going to join an event remembering Trayvon Martin in Miami called the “Day of Remembrance Community Peace Walk and Forum.” Martin’s parents created a foundation that is sponsoring the event.
This is not the first time Foxx has made himself visible vis-à-vis Martin; he showed up at the 2012 BET awards in a T-shirt with Martin’s picture on it. Foxx was convinced Martin was just an innocent youth shot by the cold-blooded adult George Zimmerman; interviewed by TheSource.com at the Foxxhole Radio All-White Party at The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City last year, Foxx bloviated:
I’ll tell you what it means to everybody; everybody that got kids. I got an 18 year-old daughter, she got 18 year-old boy friends. My thing, I come from the kid-aspect of it. It’s like when I see the Trayvon Martin case, sometimes it shocks me that people would have anything negative to say about finding justice for a child. When a child is walking around, he’s thinking like a child. He’s thinking like a 17 year-old, 18 year-old who’s going on about his day, when a man with a gun is already on the phone with 911. He has something completely different in his mind. So when those two people meet; it’s up to the grown up. It’s up to the grown up to take responsibility so something bad doesn’t happen to the child.
Evidence later showed that Martin was closer to a thug than an innocent victim, and that Zimmerman had been friendly with blacks since he was raised with them as a child. But that won’t win Foxx support from his leftist friends, so he’s going to march in tribute to the Martin “child.”
