Crystal WrightFollowing Sybrina Fulton‘s powerful and emotional plea Friday to the National Urban League, conservative Black token du jour, Crystal Wright, who has coined the moniker, Conservative Black Chick, took to Twitter and attacked the grieving mother as being opportunistic and dishonest.

Wright cruelly accused Fulton of “manufacturing a race war” and suggests that she “move on” or “get on with writing her book.”

Move on from her murdered child?

Mimicking the crass, troll tactics of some of her GOP brethren, Wright agreed — and retweeted — followers who claimed that Sybrina Fulton “didn’t care about Trayvon till she copyrighted his name and made trash cans of money.”

Wright, who takes pride in being a “triple minority,” — Black, female and Republican — was a regular commentator on HLN during the George Zimmerman trial, obviously selected to be the lone Black voice who would support the former neighborhood watch captain’s version of events — re: lies — and place 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on trial from the grave.

And she took Fulton’s speech today as an opportunity to do it once again.

As previously reported by NewsOne, Fulton addressed the National Urban League in Philadelphia to call for action against Florida’s controversial and racially-biased ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws.

Recalling the moment that she handed a driver a photo of Trayvon, and he said “that’s my son, too,” Fulton said her message is resonating in the right way:

“My message to you is please use my story, please use my tragedy, please use my broken heart to say to yourself, `We cannot let this happen to anybody else’s child,'” she told the audience.

See Fulton’s speech below:

While Fulton may be spreading love the right way, Wright is spreading hate the GOP way — criminalizing an unarmed Black teen, ridiculing his mother and calling the love that she has for her child a media ploy.

When one follower — unsurprisingly, another White male — tweeted “gotta love parents-never paid attention-until his corpse brought fame/bucks,” Wright was quick to tweet her approval.

What is clear is that any criticism from Trayvon Martin supporters will likely feed the ugliness that Wright is perpetuating. After all, White, conservative, male America loves her and, if her Twitter feed is any indication, that seems to be all the validation that she needs.
