While George Zimmerman has been in hiding, his supporters are busy maintaining the racist practices that led to Trayvon Martin’s murder. A white supremacist—who is clearly itching to get retaliated against—admitted to hacking into Martin’s e-mail, and social networking accounts, and leaking his personal business all over the ‘Net.
The cowardly hacker, who goes by the name Klanklannon, posted the 17-year-old’s personal Facebook messages on a political message board site called 4Chan.org, Klanklannon, uploaded screen shots of correspondence between Martin and a friend, in which they talk about getting high, another slide titled “Trayvon Martin was a Drug Dealer,” acts to prove that he sold drugs.
Being that propaganda is much more easily spread since the creation of Photoshop, the authenticity of Martin’s posts cannot be confirmed. However the tech thief also sent a photo of the Florida high school student’s gmail inbox over to Gawker, to prove his hacking abilities. Elsewhere on the smear campaign, conservative website, The DailyCaller.com somehow gained access to his Twitter account and posted his tweets, before the page was deleted.
These latest moves contributing to the degradation of the unarmed teen’s character is yet another foolish attempt at blaming the victim. Since his death, Martin has become an unwitting martyr for a nation that—judging by the majority response to his killing—is tired of accepting the racial inequalities that continue to get swept under the rug.
