Pretty soon we will hear that Trayvon Martin was murdered for whistling at a white girl like Emmett Till....Hey Negroes & liberals... You picked the wrong piece of shit to be a hero.... Trayvon martin GOT WHAT HE DESERVED!
Former gang banger and US Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) on Wednesday morning was asked to leave the House floor after removing his suit jacket to reveal a "hoodie," then putting the hood of his sweatshirt on his head to protest the Trayvon Martin killing in Florida. A photo of Rush can be seen here.
"Racial profiling has to stop," Rush said. "Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum." Rush also put on sunglasses.
Rush quoted the Bible while presiding officer Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) repeatedly interrupted him, then asked the Sergeant at Arms to enforce the House prohibition on hats in the chamber.
"The chair must remind members that clause 5 of rule 17 prohibits the wearing of hats in the chamber when the House is in session," Harper said after Rush left. "The chair finds that the donning of a hood is not consistent with this rule. Members need to remove their hoods or leave the floor."
Several members of the Congressional Black Caucus have taken to the House floor for the last week to call for the arrest of George Zimmerman, who allegedly shot Martin in Florida in April. While these calls have escalated, Florida police have said some witnesses saw Martin beat Zimmerman before the shooting, and Zimmerman's lawyers have said he acted in self-defense.
