A University of Maryland official sent an email to students, telling them that the Trayvon Martin case proved that it is “it is legal to hunt down and kill American children.”
He also said that gun owners and gun manufacturers are “challenging the very fabric of the nation.” The purpose of the email was to encourage students to attend a lecture by former NAACP chairman Julian Bond.
Mr. Bond has a long history of inflammatory and vicious statements. For instance, Bond once said of the Republican party: “Their idea of equal rights is the American flag and the Confederate swastika flying side-by-side.”
The University of Maryland official behind the e-mail, William Dorlan, did not comment specifically on whether race-baiting impressionable young students was also “challenging the very fabric of the nation.”
