According to applications filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office by the family's attorney last week, Fulton wants to trademark "I am Trayvon" and "Justice for Trayvon" for use in DVDs and CDs memorializing the slain teenager.
|Is it any wonder that Al Sharpton (right) is in on this?|
"You're a racist Jack! You wouldn't be saying this if it was a white mother doing the same thing!" Of course I would. I'm not racist, because I believe that human beings of all colors have the capability of being scourges to their own species.
I mean, what's the point of mass producing memorial CD's and DVD's? To hilight the injustice of it all? I highly doubt that is needed, because this case is getting quite a bit of national attention. Do they really think that trademarking certain phrases is going to abate any speculation or defamation of his character? Logically, that won't happen. People will still say whatever they want about him, whenever they want and however they want. He's dead. You can't slander or libel a dead person.
So trademarking these phrases is not going to really do anything for his memory or reputation. I mean, if I wanted to trash his name, all I'd have to do is just make a bunch of shirts that say "Trayvon sucks." There would be nothing they could do about it, except trademark the phrase "Trayvon sucks." The only thing one can logically conclude is that they want to make money off of this.
