WASHINGTON) —First Lady Michelle Obama was joined by the American Public Health Association and the Southern Poverty Law Center Monday in formally laying (partial) blame for the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on the Mars Corporation and its popular candy, Skittles
Said Mrs. Obama to reporters at the White House, “We know the power of advertising and sugar-infused confectionery on the children of this nation. And we know the disproportionate eating habits between Caucasian and non-Caucasian youth. …The facts are the facts: had Trayvon Martin and his siblings not been tricked into a lifestyle of sweetened snack servitude this awful tragedy would never have happened.”
Obama added that a grocery store on the opposite side of the neighborhood where Martin was shot offered healthier choices for snacks, such as apples, arugula, and oxygen-flavored rice paddies. Had Trayvon and his brother (for whom he was buying the Skittles) not been dragooned into sweet candy addiction by Skittles, Trayvon would have taken a different route; one that would have not put him on his fatal encounter with community watch captain George Zimmerman.
Wow. Really??? The Obama's and the left have literally lost their marbles. What a ludicrous statement from the angry black woman!!!!!
