The Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, president of the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny (BOND), a conservative nonprofit, made some contentious statements on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” on Thursday. In addition to lambasting Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for inserting race into Trayvon Martin’s death and George Zimmerman’s subsequent trial, he called the 17-year-old shooting victim a “thug.”

The exchange began with Peterson claiming that race played no role in the highly-publicized tragedy.

“This case was not about race at all and what happened – you have the race-hustlers and poverty pimps like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and others who turned it into a race issue in order to gain power and wealth,” he charged.

Peterson also targeted President Barack Obama, calling his past comment about Martin (“You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”) “insane.”

These statements, he said, were intended to “incite the anger of black Americans and others.”

Do like NBC does.Delete every photo that shows Trayvon "bustin' the sag".Thats when a guys pants are way too low for those who haven't heard that term.Remember the song "Pants on the ground,hat turned sideways"? That was Trayvon.

Trayvon was a thug. Trayvon was suspended from school three times. Trayvon brandished a gun and smoked weed. Trayvon was a fan of "lean"--a narcotising drink made with cough syrup, skittles and Arizona Watermelon (no tea like the media lies) Trayvon was found with stolen jewelry in his school backpack and never punished or reported. Trayvon threw the first punch according to his Mensa friend, Jenteal. If Trayvons mother had grounded him for the third suspension he would still be alive.

I'd like to add to 11:21's comment. According to Martin's autopsy report "fatty metamorphosis" of the liver. In other words liver damage. This damage is not seen in 17 year old unless EXCESSIVE alcohol and/or drug use has occurred.

----What needs to be noted is that Martin family attorney Crump fought to keep the autopsy report out of public review-----

Also brain and lung damage are present.
