Let me understand this breaking news.

George Zimmerman.

Walks into a bar.

Says something controversial. In that bar.

He then gets kicked out of that bar.

For saying a racial slur.

And being drunk, too.

I was expecting something like getting shot or being the one who opened fire on somebody. He's gotten soft.

I figured the thread got bumped because Trump offered Zimmerman a spot in his administration.

I don't know what to think. Yeah, on second thought I do. Chalk this up to coming out of Florida.

Florida university to award degree to Trayvon Martin

(CNN)Trayvon Martin's getting a college degree. The slain Florida teenager -- killed by George Zimmerman five years ago -- will be awarded a posthumous bachelor's degree in aeronautical science from Florida Memorial University. Martin's parents, Sabrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, will accept the degree on his behalf during the school's spring commencement on May 13. Fulton is an alumnus of the school, a historically black university in Miami Gardens, Florida. The aeronautics degree is in "honor of the steps he took during his young life toward becoming a pilot," the school said in a Facebook post. Florida Memorial's Department of Aviation and Safety has a designated Cessna pilot training center, ...

Likewise, I just clicked in thinking, "oh, what did this douchebag do now".

Funny coincidence. Yesterday I thinking that it had been a while since we had heard about Zimmerman. I figure he wised up and was keeping a low profile.

I think that Florida Memorial University might be onto something here. Schools are under pressure to grant degrees to more people of color. Distributing science and engineering degrees to dead people can painlessly increase their percentages.

It's a black university. Really it's just a publicity stunt.

Florida university to award degree to Trayvon Martin



https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/a92cd48...-to-award.html


After years of hard work and studying, Trayvon Martin has earned a well deserved bachelorís degree in aeronautical science from Florida Memorial University.

Martin worked very hard to earn this degree.

For example, after a school security camera showed Martin marking graffiti, a search of his backpack showed that it contained 12 pieces of womenís jewelry, including silver wedding rings, and earrings with diamonds. The backpack also had a screwdriver, which is often used as a tool by burglars. Martin said that the jewelry belonged to a friend, but refused to say who that friend was. Itís nice that Martin has such an interest in geology and metallurgy. Itís also a good sign of Martinís moral character that he protected his friend.

In addition, testing showed that there was THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, in Martinís system. This is exactly the kind of thing that pilots need in order to safely transport their passengers.

Furthermore, Martin broke George Zimmermanís nose, and smashed Zimmermanís head against the concrete. There are very few pilots who have ever managed to achieve this much bodily harm to Zimmerman.

Based on all of these accomplishments, Iím certain that Martin will make an excellent pilot. I canít wait to have him as my pilot the next time I go on vacation.

Iím sure that Martinís degree will greatly enhance the reputation of Florida Memorial University, as well as increase the prestige and earning potential of its graduates.

When it comes to STEM subjects, MIT, Caltech, and Carnegie Mellon are usually considered to be the best universities. And for sure, the people who go to these great halls of learning do possess a superior level of intellect and intelligence. But I think Martinís hard work and achievements have shown that Florida Memorial University outperforms and eclipses them all when it comes to attracting, teaching, and graduating the very best and brightest mathematical and scientific geniuses.

I have no doubt that Martin will go on to win a Nobel Prize in Physics, as well as a Fields Medal.

Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, Einstein, and Hawking are all well regarded for their scientific genius, and Iím certain that in 500 years from now, Martinís name will be just as well known for his contributions to the world of scientific knowledge and discovery.

And just think, if Zimmerman had just minded his own fucking business Trevon would still be alive. Maybe in jail, but alive.
