A member of the Compton Unified School District has been recorded calling Trayvon Martin a “fa—t black dude,” during a podcast interview. Skyy D. Fisher, who commented on the case via Southern California news station, KTLA, called in to a separate interview and unleashed a reprehensible rant with no apparent prodding. He also the targeted local Superintendent Karen Frison, calling her a “b—h.”
Fisher’s comments are obviously drawing outrage from community members, all of whom have been touched by the slaying of the unarmed teen back in February. In the interview posted on YouTube, Fisher brags about how wearing a hoodie will help him earn points in the court of public opinion. “In solidarity with this Trayvon Martin b—h, I’m trying to get on the news, so I’m wearing a hoodie at the whole board meeting,” he starts. “It’s the perfect publicity stunt! I’m going to wear a hoodie, and the news is going to come out and I’m going to announce my candidacy for City Council, goddammit.”
The disgraced school official also makes mention of Martin’s accused killer, George Zimmerman, who is facing second-degree murder charges for the shooting. The 28-year-old, who has used self-defense as the reasoning behind the shooting, has been pegged as a racist, claims of which were further solidified after and old Myspace page was uncovered by the Miami Herald. “That white dude that killed that fa—t black dude in Florida. I’m going to go out and try to search for this [inaudible],” he says. “If you all see that George Zimmerman b—h, tell him I’m looking for him.”
While some have come to his defense, claiming that there must be more to the tape that has not been heard, Fisher has yet to explain his disrespectful comments.
