“Hoodies and Heels” Party for Trayvon Martin? I Hate People.

I called it. I CALLED IT. The other night, I was on Twitter talmbout how I don’t want to see folks have a club party in honor of Trayvon Martin. I KNEW these raggelly club promoters would use this to try to bring folks to come drop down and get their eagle on at their terrible parties.

Lo and behold, look what someone showed me:

Hoodies and Heels Party for Trayvon

“Hoodies and Heels” party for justice for Trayvon. I want to fight somebody. I knew one of your cousins was gonna go and do this. I KNEW folks were gonna take this hoodies symbolism and do hoodrat things with it. You greedy opportunists! You crass and couthless classless wonders!

How is a night at the club supposed to bring justice for Trayvon? Me doing the wop to the latest in Top Urban 40 music is not gonna put Zimmerman in cuffs. What is WRONG with folks? I mean, my goodness. But I shouldn’t be surprised. Folks be having MLK night at the club too so…

This party will probably be attended by Dereon and Jordan heel enthusiasts too. Ugh.

And as if it wasn’t bad enough, they go and use Trayvon’s pic for the flyer. Haysoos be a trickle of tact for this troop of trifling thieves (alliteration FTW!).

The bottom is talmbout “All profits will go to the family of #TrayvonMartin. THE DEVIL IS A LIE. I bet not one dime of this will go to that family. Somebody would have to show me some notarized receipts because these people need more people. And if they did want to do a fundraiser for Trayvon so bad, does it have to be in a place that requires a bouncer? They couldn’t have no picnic or church bazaar? Oh ok.

I’m not ok with this. Can yall tell your people to chill a little bit? Just a little? And if you go to this party, shame on you. I wish shabbiness on the hoodies of all these DJs and promoters. A TERRIBLE mess.

Everyone involved with this needs to have s gahtdamb SEAT. \_____ <— lounge chair {\_ _ _/} <— sofa |___| <— park bench. Pick a seat. ANY. SEAT. Just SADDOWN.

Sometimes, my skinfolk ain’t my kinfolk. Word to Zora Neale.

    But you didn’t comment about the “red bottoms” off to the left. :-\ What these clowns fail to recognize is this is someone’s SON… not a party theme! Neither Jesus nor Trayvon died for this. UGH!

    This is so disrespectful and misguided I can’t begin to wrap my brain about how this would be appropriate in anyone’s mind. It just makes me want to cry.

  8. March 23, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    There are no words. None. Just crickets. What the heck is wrong with people?! As my coach used to say–“IS YOUR BRAIN BROKEN? OXYGEN LOW? MUST BE!” Don’t put this boy’s name on it. Don’t put his parents in it like you’re gonna give them dime one. I just can’t believe people would go that low for a club theme. All the Black leaders are rolling in their graves. All the living leaders just tripped on a crack and fell.

    Shaking the hell out of my head…I can’t believe this! I’ve seen it all. We know this, all of those proceeds aren’t going to anybody but the promoters pockets.

    I was irritated enough when some of the Occupy assholes tried to hijack the protests in NYC and Chicago. They made it seem like they were down for the cause, but turned it into another “We are the 99” rallies. Despicable and selfish.

    This though? This is just Trifling with a capital “T”, and falls into the category of anyone who hosts “I Have a Dream” club nights to capitalize on MLK Day. Get that garbage all the way outta here!

    Its new age slavery mentality. The white man or the man with money to pay the club owner to disrespect his own people at cost. This theory has worked to sell out our own for years.So, do be surprised, its expected. This young is an example of the truth about our culture. Broken families, no jobs, no proper education and only good for entertainment. And we only come together when someone dies. When I looked at all the people who showed for Ms. Hustons honor. I shook my head. Just think if all those people came together to help her with her struggle with drug abuse.She would be alive today. There is power in numbers. That’s how we got a black president. Luvvie you called, before it happend! You know you live in a generation of the zombies,no mind of their own. You know the media has be heavy on zombie movies,TV, shows and books. Indirectly mocking us and the message is WE DON’T DESERVE TO LIVE! If we don’t fight for our own we are killing our own future to exsist! Wake up and be aware its going to get worse before it gets better!

    How in the hell do some of you see this as a positive thing? No one that night is about to be educated on a damn thing other than how to twerk to skeet skeet music while getting tipsy on some Cooks champagne. This is a travesty!

    So basically, we are gonna use the murder of a young black teenager to party and bs? The young man on the flyer was 17, but only 21+ men get in, so we are also going to encourage a bunch of grown ass men to show up so they can take advantage of and get served by some 18+ young ones? Coontastic.

    Let me get this straight: This family has lost a child. They’ve had to endure the most painful experience any parent will ever have to live through. They will never get to see him graduate from high school. They will never move him into a dorm room, or watch him accept his degree, see him get married, or hold his first child. On top of all of this the murder of their child was grossly mishandled by a police department that has a history of misconduct when the victim is a person of color. They’re also in a media storm where full on victim blaming by jack asses like geraldo are telling them it’s their child’s fault because he’s a nigger in a hoodie and he should have known that’s going to scare people. Yet somehow all of the pain this family has endured and continues to endure is going to be mitigated by a bunch of tragic sweaty negros in a dirty little club in Orlando (btw, I’m from Orlando and I’ve been to the Roxy. It’s not fit for a dog to shit in) grinding to lil’ wayne or some such other ignant rapper talking about how he fucks ho’s all day and smokest the loudest of weed? Please let me know if I’M MISSING something, but this is the most horrid, vapid, and selfish reaction to this tragedy. There are complex racial and social issues on display for the world to see and all you gaunch ass motherfuckers can think about is going to club Roxy? Y’all ain’t shit!

    I’m sitting here wondering if the people on this thread go out and party at all….and I do mean at all. Yes, kicking it for your b-day/graduation/new job/promotion/unemployment/new blog/failed blog counts. I have no idea who this promoter is nor the type of crowd he brings out. I also have no idea if he/she will ACTUALLY give any money the the family or lawyer.

    I do know that when something like this we should all do what we can to help. Even better we should use our skill and resources to help. For some of us that means donating directly, or organizing a rally, or writing blogs and sad to say some of us are party promoters.

    The fact of the matter is that people are going to find somewhere to kick it on March 23rd regardless…it IS a FRIDAY. Worse case scenario this promoter is bringing more attention to the issue. As crazy as it sounds some of the alleged Dereon wearing, Jordan Heel rocking heffas might not have even heard about the shooting until they saw the flyer. So in that case the promoter helped the cause..any donated money is a bonus.

    I’m just saying.

    Full Disclaimer: I am an ex promoter…but it was only in college.

    • stephanie82
      March 23, 2012 at 8:37 pm

      Are you f’in kidding me?! You support this low life mess?! Those hoodrats won’t donate NOTHING because they’re probably gonna get drunk before they go so they won’t have to buy the watered down drinks. Im pretty sure there will be a fight since black ppl can’t get together without fighting and shooting. This “promoter” could’ve set up a rally or picnic. Not club party disrespecting this lil boy and his family. This is crazy and i bet your mad you didn’t think of this first. Wow this is why black ppl are looked down on. Ughhh….

      Anyone whose first exposure to this infuriating tragedy is a club flyer, is truly dumber than I thought.

      Bottom line, someone is capitalizing off the incident with a club party, and that’s wrong, not to mention ignorant. Let’s not even pretend there’s an underlying good cause here. Yeah, the DJ’s going to say “RIP Trayvon” as he starts the next Weezy track. Yeah, that’s the way to remember him!

  29. March 24, 2012 at 11:44 am

    There is really nothing for me to add, except to say I cannot and will not stand behind this foolishness…people will try to capitalize on anything and everything, and these people know damn well not nary dime is going to Trayvon’s family! I swear…

    Luvvie, you need to sit your bougie ass ALL THE WAY DOWN. I’m reading this on my phone, but I’ll get on my computer later and write a more eloquent response. But this attitude is exactly the kind we don’t need, and the mentality that justifies the persecution of “those Blacks”. Its highly insensitive of you and I do not appreciate it.

    • Bougie poster
      March 25, 2012 at 1:09 am

      You mad? No one cares about what you do not appreciate. Get over yourself then get a clue.

      How is it bougie to protest a party that has nothing to do with promoting justice and has everything to do with shaking your ass to Top 40 rap music? This event was a thinly-veiled attempt to profit on this tragedy. If it’s bougie to be against that, then I’ll be the first in line. But I’m sure others are already standing there. You want to donate proceeds, there’s other events you can hold. A Friday night club party is not one of them. Again, I guess I’ll just be bougie and say that this club party is absolutely shameful.

      Please save your “eloquent response”, if it’s going to be more of what you just said. In fact, why don’t you take your own advice and sit ALL THE WAY DOWN yourself?
