While he continues to blame George Zimmerman for his son’s 2012 death, Trayvon Martin’s father, Tracy, recently issued a scathing indictment of the violence found within the black community.
In a recent address, the elder Martin lamented the fact that black-on-black violence is such a common phenomenon.
“I tell people all the time that we are committing genocide,” he said.
Martin continued by insisting that blacks are “on the brink of extinction” due to the levels of violence in many communities.
“We keep the funeral homes and the penal system in business,” he concluded. “When are we going to wake up? I’m a realist. We can’t sit up and scream that black lives matter at any other ethnicity … if black lives don’t matter to black people.”
