I can only gather that this represents some kind of pathological obsession...

To portray young Black males as the perpetrators of violence, even if they have to use someone who was himself the victim of violence.

I give you "Angry Trayvon," courtesy of Play.Google for your Android device.



I'm not going to elaborate on this crap other than it's a horribly offensive revenge fantasy driven smear on the slain Trayvon Martin.

If you're an Android owner, I'd appreciate it if you would kindly go to the app's page and flag it as offensive.

Thanks.

1. And people who are defending Zimmerman here on DU and elsewhere swear this case has

absolutely NOTHING to do with race!!

They are either lying or willfully ignorant. (I think it's the former!)

Which is why I ask those who are to flag it.

8. Thanks, I looked for a way to do so but did not see it. I will ask people I know though

to do so. Unbelievable and so very sad.

9. Horrible, and consistent with the comments people leave on the online news articles.

I posted a thread here a few weeks ago with links to my local online news. Today I was reading the comments below articles in the Orlando and Tampa newspapers. Vile, foul racism. Even taking into account the fact that probably 50% of the comments are by people paid by the defense to astro-turf, it's still a discouraging reminder of the level of foul racism in this country.

I am sorry that this exists.

10. It appears, they got their ass handed to them. (edited)

From their facebook page:
-----------------
Angry Trayvon
about an hour ago via mobile
The people spoke out therefore this game was removed from the app stores. Sorry for the inconvenience as this was just an action game for entertainment. This was by no means a racist game. Nonetheless, it was removed as will this page and anything associated with the game will be removed.

------------------

I found their facebook page while I was googling for a company and a phone number. I don't use Android so I was looking for another way.

ETA: found contact information: Trade Digital, LLC was established and is located in New York City. (from the facebook "about")
