I am not Trayvon. But I AM the woman in the elevator.


Shayn Roby’s Take: Sarah makes the point that neither she as a rape victim, nor a black male in America feel safe. The point is well taken in her case, and perhaps black males feel alienated from society. As a white male, the editor of ShaynRoby.com is not going to pretend to know how a black male feels, nor how it feels to be a woman who has been brutalized by a subhuman coward. However, it is apparent from the facts of the Trayvon Martin shooting that the incident had nothing to do with how a safe a black male is.   It has more to do with the safety of someone under the influence of illicit substances being stupid enough to stalk and tackle someone who they perceive to be a ‘gay rapist’. This was revealed by Rachel Jeantel on the Piers Morgan show a couple of days after the trial. She unwittingly made it crystal clear that not only did the jury get it right about self defense, but that Trayvon should have been charged with stalking, assault and battery, and more than likely, impairment in public from marijuana use. Robitussin would have been mentioned, but it’s apparent that Trayvon hadn’t made it home yet, so that he could mix his watermelon Arizona and his Skittles with Robitussin to make a concoction of ‘Lean’. The autopsy report revealed that Martin had significant liver damage that is consistent with someone who has been abusing Robitussin. Generally, someone under the influence of this concoction tends to be violent and incoherent. The editor of ShaynRoby.com will not specualte as to whether Martin was under the influence of ‘Lean’ the night he was killed, but can reasonably assume that he used marijuana regularly. Ms. Jeantel said he smoke a ‘couple of times a week’, Trayvon was found with a baggie with residue in it by Miami Dade Public School Police, and the autopsy revealed the presence of THC in his system. Trayvon was unsafe because he participated in activities and behaviors that put him at risk, NOT because he was black.
