It turns out prosecutors, defense attorneys, the media and, basically, the whole world, got it wrong when assigning blame for the Trayvon Martin tragedy. Turns out the real culprit isn’t George Zimmerman or shitty paranoiac Florida laws, it’s a 73 year old singer named Lester Chambers.
Here’s how we know:
At the Russell City Blues Festival in Hayward, California, during jury deliberations for the Martin case, 43 year old Dinalynn Andrews Potter, of Barstow, California, jumped on stage and attacked Chambers after he dedicated the Curtis Mayfield song, “People Get Ready,” to Martin, about two hours before word of Zimmerman’s acquittal arrived.
Witnesses said Potter yelled “It’s all your fault!” before shoving Chambers to the floor – he was treated at hospital for a welt on his backside, a bruised rib muscle, nerve damage and soreness. Yes, Chambers, I think it’s about time you admitted your role in all this.
Prosecutors have filed two felony charges against Andrews Potter – one for assault, the other for…sooth saying?? Well, thank God, someone had the cajones to stand up and speak truth to power, and by speaking truth to power, I mean beating up on an old guy who dedicated a song to a dead kid.
Power to the people.
And by the way, when Lester Chambers was at an age when I doubt Andrews Potter would’ve had the cajones to give him half a stink eye, he certainly was guilty of one thing: this 1967 psych-rock masterpiece which you’ve heard in about 1000 movies and commercials:
Looks like time has come for Dinalynn Andrews Potter.
