Ireland Pop artist Sinead O’Connor dropped some knowledge on her website about the Trayvon Martin story. Checkout her blog below:

22.03.12 Treyvon Martin

I would like to extend my very deepest sympathies to the family and other loved ones of murdered teenager, Treyvon Martin. I am very sad today (and am certain the whole of Ireland is) to learn of poor Treyvon’s terrifying ordeal and horrified by the fact his known and named and admitted killer has not been arrested, despite the crime having taken place a month ago. This is a disgrace to the entire human race.

For those out there who believe black people to be less than pure royalty, let me inform you of a little known, but scientifically proven, many times over, FACT. Which after reading, you will hopefully feel both very stupid and very sorry. For you dishonor your own mothers and grandmothers.

EVERY human being on earth, no matter what their culture, creed, skin colour, or nationality, shares one gene traceable back to one African woman. Scientists have named it ‘The Eve Gene’. This means ALL of us, even ridiculously stupid, ignorant, perverted, blaspheming racists are the descendants of one African woman.

Everyone has been waiting on this trial for nearly four years and today was the day Torrance Hatch, better known as Lil Boosie went to court for his sentencing. Investigators had accused him of trying to smuggle drugs once into Dixon Correctional Facility, and twice into Angola State Penitentiary.

Earlier today Boosie pleaded guilty to charges of him smuggling contraband into two different prisons he was held in while awaiting trial on murder charges. He was sentenced to eight years hard labor for the charges, with credit for time served.
