73 Year Old Soul Singer Assaulted By Woman Over Trayvon Martin Tribute

(AllHipHop News) The Trayvon Martin Effect is real and manifested during a performance at the Hayward Russell City Blues Festival in San Francisco. While performing the Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions’ song “People Get Ready” he dedicated to Trayvon Martin, 73 year old soul singer Lester Chambers was assaulted by a enraged woman.

At the July 13th festival, 44 year old  Dinalynn Andrews-Potter was captured on video climbing onto the stage, shoving and mounting Chambers who suffered bruised rib muscles, nerve damage and had to walk with a cane following the assault. Chambers’ son, Dylan Chambers posted a photo of his father’s injuries onto his personal Facebook page:

The Chicago Tribune reported that Andrews-Potter is a retired member of the U.S. Navy and has admitted to suffering from post-traumatic stress.

While Chambers informed Reuters that he “certainly wanted her charged for an assault and hate crime because that’s what it was” there was no evidence of racial epithets or motivation according to the Alameda County district attorney.

Andrews-Potter was charged with felony assault and elder abuse.

Check out the video of the assault and Chambers’ interview with CBS News below:

    Post traumatic stress? Do they ever do anything thats not the fault of a mental illness?

    • Matt Swan

      Pump brakes on that. PTSD is a real illness, and I know plenty of servicemembers who have it, but it’s being cheapened by those who only claim it when their necks are on the line. She didn’t have PTSD when she did what she did. That was pure evil. And she was in the Navy…THE NAVY!!! She doesn’t look like a SEAL to me, maybe a nurse, but she damn sure wasn’t outside the wire putting in work. I hope he sues her a$$ and gets her military pension.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        Lol I support it too. I should go in the rich part of my state and follow some of those Abercrombie kids around. Say they look like vandals. But they’d probably just call the cops. Hmmm… Wonder would Trayvon still be here if he would’ve called the cops? speaking of which… Have you seen the latest conspiracy theory? On some “Trayvon and GZ weren’t even real” type ish? It’s actually quite believable. They couldn’t find any S.S. numbers on Tray or Zimm, birth certificates. NOTHING. After watching some of those videos I’m a little skeptical of Sandy Hook too.

      • You know damn well if the cops roll up & you talking that Abercrombie Kid Vandal ‘chet, (*While they spray painting the police car) the cops will go “COP” on you.

        On TrayCon:
        If it’s that DallasGoldbug Ninja, ignore him. He said the July 4 Patriot was an undercover NY cop & that he wasn’t really in prison, etc., meanwhile, we exchanging packages & on the phone from the prison.

        Trust me, the Powers That Be pay ninjaz to go online & do fugg ‘chet, while spreading dissension & confusion.

        Israel pays college students to do it.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        Yea disinformation at its finest. All of this looks fabricated though. Like it’s for the gun laws. If you just type “Sandy” in you tube the first thing that pops up is “Sandy Hook Conspiracy”. Same if you type “Trayvon Martin Isn’t Real”. The first video shows how BOTH FATHERS are Freemasons, coincidence? Looks believable enough. Same with Hitler’s false flag attack on his own country to make new laws likened t 9/11 to instill patriot act. All these “mass shootings” (including the batman one in my state) to instill fear and make everyone vote a certain way.

      • That Hitler ‘chet was real.The Reichstag fire in 1933 was a 9/11 false flag. In reality, the Nazi’s won WW2, and that’s why it seems like we are using their playbook.

        NJ State Troopers was started by a nazi….compare the uniforms.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        I believe a lot of things are staged. They’ve just gotten better at it. And the news is the perfect theater. Actors in the form of witnesses and reporters. plus the ever diligent cameras. Ever notice how we can watch Ben 10, Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Martin, Madea’s (insert here) adventure, and play 2k whatever, Call of duty 7 and fight night in striking triple plasma HD? but if it’s an NBA/NFL important call, bigfoot, the lochness monster, the gunman on the grassy knoll, the first or second 9/11 plane, UFO’s, or ANYTHING of importance, all of a sudden the quality is like it’s being recorded with the sole of a Lugz boot?

Did that happen to me and all my buds at one time or another? Oh, heaven’s no.

        And if that white 17 y/o is murdered while walking through that black neighborhood the murderer should have to pay for his crime. As far as cop brutality goes you’re making yourself look really foolish complaining about cop brutality as a white boy on a hip hop site. I’m starting to get the feeling that I’m responding to a child.

        OK so if that 17 yo “child”:

        JEANTEL: Yes. Definitely after I say may be a rapist, for every boy, for every man, every — who’s not that kind of way, seeing a grown man following them, would they be creep out?
        JEANTEL: And people need to understand, he didn’t want that creepy ass cracker going to his father or girlfriend’s house to go get — mind you, his little brother was there.

        con’t: thinks a black neighborhood watch person is a f@ggot he should attack him and bang his/her head into the sidewalk trying to kill him and get shot for it.
        ok, i, agree, i’m sorry.
        However, it could have been me searching for a lost kitten with my flaslight and Trayvon and Rachel Jeantel (aka Diamond Eugene) would have had the same homophobic reaction because of the community they grew up in.
        Ok, the media is afraid of blacks and not of gays who are too damn afraid to say anything negative about St. Trayvon.
        This country is becomning an F ing joke man, really. This has to stop or I’m going back to Africa (yes, I lived there for 7 years, the coolest “black folk” I ever met in my life. USA is F ed up.

    For some reason shit makes me happy… A lot of Metaphors in this…
    To think a 73 year Old Black Man singing about “PEOPLE GET READY!!!” would bring that much FEAR in a trained 44 Years old Navy Seal White Woman… It is the same FEAR that got Trayvon Martin Dead…. It is the same FEAR that created that Biased System we live in… All that shit is a confirmation that We are such a SUPERIOR race to them…

    I mean for Christ sake I couldn’t even think about Touching a 73 year Old White, Hispanic, Chinese whatever Man because to me in other circumstances He could be MY FATHER! … Same shit with the TRAYVON case, Zimmerman didn’t actually think this little guy could be MY SON… Why is it so hard to see us that way?… Why is it so hard to accept our black ass?… LOL… FEAR is the only reason that comes to my mind…

    If they knew us they would understand we got soul aka forgiveness in our heart… See How that Old Man reacted?… He reacted as if it was her little Daughter beating the crap out of him… Such a great soul…I am glad to be Black…THANK GOD for the body and soul he gave us, He is the one in control… it is as if he knew what we would go through… And Thank you Old Man for both demonstrations although it was not intended that way… Keep your soul intact and much respect on your forgiveness…

    People get ready !…change is coming …The last will be first and the first will be last

    • Robert Riversong

      Were you born blind or did you develop that trait on you own?

      The woman was a retired Navy (NOT SEAL) veteran with PTSD, but calling her an elite trooper makes a better story.

      There was NO racial element in the Martin-Zimmerman incident and Zimmerman was cleared of ANY racial or ethnic prejudice by the FBI investigation.

      And there is no evidence of any racial element in this assault, but Chambers, just like the rest of the black community after the Zimmerman incident, injects racial hatred where it doesn’t exist.

      It might make a better story, but living in a false narrative is not what a “great soul” does.

      • Southcidal

        Regardless of here motive, the dumb biitch is wrong for attacking an old man. Your posting of anything other than agreeing that she is wrong is showing your approval of her actions. Phuck the old fart as long as he wasn’t white huh?

      • Robert Riversong

        That you continue to project your own demons into my words again proves my point that the black community NEEDS to see evil where none exists.

    Chambers informed Reuters that he “certainly wanted her charged for an assault and hate crime because that’s what it was”

    Just as the black community imputed a race crime to Zimmerman, a mixed-race person with a lifetime of close and intimate relationships with blacks.

    Racism will die in America when the black community stops seeing a racist in every shadow and racism in every confrontation.

    • Southcidal

      You’re blaming the reason for racism on the victims of racism? LOL!! “Racism will die in America when the black community stops seeing…….”. Huh? Do you even hear yourself? The racism imputed in the Zimmerman case was not in the confrontation itself but in the dirty, totally racially-driven lack of justice in this so-called judicial system. No way does Zimmerman walk if it were a white kid murdered, that’s where the racism comes into play. Lets not try to get away from the true issues in this country.
      Unless you’re mentally incapable of understanding the difference between right and wrong, you know better. So if placing the blame for racism on the victims of racism is your way of making yourself feel better then carry on my brother.

      • Robert Riversong

        No, but you and millions of others are inventing victims of racism where no racism exists. The FBI exonerated Zimmerman of any racial or ethnic prejudice and his profiling or Trayvon had to do with behavior not race.

        That half of America insists that the mixed-race Zimmerman engaged in racial profiling or that there was any evidence of racial bias in the police investigation, simply proves my point: that the black community sees ghosts where none exist because they NEED the specter of racism to justify their shift of responsibility onto the white community

      • Southcidal

        The only justifying of a shift of responsibility being done here is you attempting to shift the responsibility of a child being dead on the black community.
        Regardless of race, any situation where a child walking home from getting a snack and is murdered is wrong. And please stop it with this “FBI exoneration” b.s. as if that faction of the U.S. govt has always been fair and honest.
        Yeah the black community is seeing ghosts, ghosts of the thousands of innocent family members killed over senseless hate over the years.
        But go ahead continue to act as if the black community is just paranoid and totally pulling the race card out of thin air for no reason if that makes you feel better. But why not go to a rock and roll site with that bullshiit?

      • Robert Riversong

        The BS is coming from you.

        The evidence in the Zimmerman case was overwhelming and clear: Trayvon Martin stalked and brutally assaulted Zimmerman, and any other narrative is an attempt to avoid the truth of the incident.

        Trayvon Martin was spiraling downward into drugs, criminality and violence because of poor parenting and a broken home, being shuttled from one relative after another and never getting the discipline he needed after 53 days of truancy and three school suspensions in half a year.

        The responsibility for this incident falls squarely on the shoulders of Trayvon’s parents and the hip-hip culture which encourages what Obama cited as “negative influences” on black youth.

        There are thousands of legitimate cases of race-driven violence in America (from both sides of the fence), and exploiting this clear case of black youth violence and mixed-race self-defense as an example of “white” on black hate crime is the perfect example of the distorted prism through which black America views the world.

        Grow up and take responsibility for your perceptions and actions. That is what W.E.B.Dubois championed when he founded the NAACP.

    • @Real_SirJamie

      You act as if there isn’t such a thing as “closet racism” or hiding behind discretion. Now that my race has been systematically defamed by others for hundreds of years NOW everyone wants to sweep it under a rug and act like it’s something of the past? Not only that but when it’s brought to the forefront, You want to make it seem as if we as Africans are “complaining” or “Not letting it go”. WOW. What kind of adversity have you ever faced? Have you ever been accused falsely or looked at as a threat or suspicious because you look like someone else? Has YOUR race been made to look like criminals? You are the reason it stays alive. Not being sensitive to a FACT about ones history is bigotry at its FINEST.

      • Robert Riversong

        “Not being sensitive to a FACT about ones history is bigotry at its FINEST.”

        Now that’s a fine example of intellectual dishonesty coupled with deliberate redefinition of language.

        There are no “facts” of history, which is a narrative told through any of several prisms or biases.

        When a patently non-racialized event, such as the Martin assault on, and consequent shooting by, Zimmerman, is exploited by almost all blacks as the epitome of racial bias, profiling and “white” (sic) vigilantism, then it is clear that the black community is inventing false narratives in order to maintain their sense of victimhood, just as women have done with feminist ideology, demonizing men and blaming them for all women’s problems.

        My people, the Israelites and European Jews, were enslaved thousands of years before blacks and oppressed for much longer, but that cannot be used as an excuse for wallowing in victimhood or for turning the tables and becoming a victimizer, such as the state of Israel is today.

        Not accepting your “facts” as truth is NOT bigotry, but intellectual disagreement. Perhaps you need to do the soul-searching that our black president asked of us and address the demons in your own heart before condemning others.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        I know who I am, but with your “European Jew” comment it is clear you do not. It’s also clear you think your vocabulary equals knowledge. But i can see this “intellectual debate” is futile. You will never admit to being racist because you will find ways to abuse the english language and make it seems as if you aren’t. So I will pray for you and I bid you a good day. Shalom.

      • Robert Riversong

        But I do not suffer fools gladly.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        I don’t care how old you are sir. Name calling is rather immature for someone “6 decades old”. And if you’re so smart why are you using repetitive verbs to insult me? True I assumed you are a racist/bigot but from your responses I must not be that far from the truth. I don’t care what passive sambo mentored you either. There is a REASON I like Malcom over Martin. I don’t have time to “dream”, I’ll get to the mountain top “by any means necessary”. This is the last response you will receive from me because your false sense of entitlement and condescending attitude makes me queasy. GOOD, DAY sir… I SAID GOOD DAY.

      • Robert Riversong

        Ah, a fourth “last response” from the one who is unable to make an honest point.

        I don’t stoop to “name calling”, but to naming things and people for what they are. You choose to duck from the truth by attacking me and others far greater than any of us.

        That you resort to “name-calling” a truly great soul as “passive sambo” displays beyond any shadow of a doubt the corruption of your own soul, as well as of you mind.

        Malcolm repented from his adolescent “by any means” strategy once he matured spiritually. Clearly, you have a lot of growing up to do.

So ya’ll could call us thugs, dealers or even president. But at least we’re not any type of trash who doesn’t respect their elders at all, basically have no home training to where u either lash out and jump on stage during some one else’s performance, and attack them.notice I didn’t mention ur fucked up kids who shoot up high schools,elementary schools, movie theaters and oh yea the same ones who either end wanting kill themselves, be gay or more than likely wanting be black jus cuz the bullshit their grandparents and lazy great grandparents did back in the days that cant even handle that or even life itself.

      • Robert Riversong

        You must have served in Korea or Nam. Women in the military in Iraq and Afghanistan have seen plenty of combat, in addition to almost constant threats of rape by their own troops.

      • arrdeesss

        Describe plenty of combat, because females are not assigned to combat units. The average soldier goes over and doesn’t see any combat at all. Not sure you know what your talking about. Don’t believe everything you see on tv guy. It makes you come off as stupid.

      • Robert Riversong

        I haven’t owned a TV since 1974, but obviously it has affected your perception of reality.

        Anyone with half a brain knows that there are no battle lines in Iraq or Afghanistan and that every support role faces the threat of combat daily.

      • arrdeesss

        “Threat of” and actual are two very different things. Technically there are threats of combat when your walking through the parking lot of your local preferred shopping center, but that doesn’t constitute ptsd either.

Next time try arguing a topic you have a clue about and maybe you won’t sound like a retarded chimp. Learn a lesson, trying to defend a racist is always a lost cause especially on a site populated mostly by the people with the same ethnicity being discriminated against.

      • Robert Riversong

        None of your arguments hold water, but when exposed you stoop to gutter talk.

        You seem determined to prove me correct about not only your intellectual incompetence but that you have the maturity of a 14-year-old.

        Why would you give the real racists more ammunition to feed their prejudice?

        George Zimmerman is the farthest thing from a racist. He was raised by a half-black grandmother, shared his childhood home with two black girls, took a black date to his senior prom, had a black business partner, publicly defended a homeless black man who was assaulted by the son of a police officer, and was mentoring two black youths at the time of the shooting in Sanford.

      • arrdeesss

        Not to mention called the cops every time he saw a black person in his neighborhood. I couldn’t care less what he grew up as or with. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it’s probably a damn duck. The guy is a racist get it through your thick head. My intellectual competence or lack there of has nothing to do with anything that has to do with you. Just because you choose to take a different route at being a smart azz doesn’t make you more intellectually intelligent, it just means your acting like an educated azzhole trying to insult someone and assume they don’t understand what your talking about. Besides guy all of my arguments hold water, Kool-Aid, wine, milk or whatever else you want to put in it. I’ve lived it buddy i’m not giving you my opinion of what i read or choose to perceive from what i’m told. Since I am obviously beneath you (yeah right) I don’t expect another response. Agree to disagree and move on with your visions of all black people are making up racism.

      • Robert Riversong

        Did you suddenly wake up from your drug-induced stupor and realize you haven’t responded in nearly a week?

        In fact, Zimmerman called the non-emergency police number for open garage doors or anything that looked suspicious, and only identified suspects as black five times, and all of those only after being asked by the dispatcher about race.

        The one time he identified a small black child playing alone in the street was out of concern for the child’s safety.

        In fact, there is nothing to even suggest a hint of racism on Zimmerman’s part, and a lifetime of evidence indicating the opposite.

        So it is not an assumption but a fact that you are seeing racism where it not only does not exist but where the object of your perverse perception is a man who should be held up as an example of the kind of color-blind thinking that MLK dreamed about.

        You and the powers that be are claiming PTSD as the reason. But the neuroanatomy (and fact) of this disease states that there has to be high stress in the hippocampus to trigger an incident. In layman’s terms, SOMETHING has to trigger her brain in the form of a traumatic memory to induce a reaction. So everyone around singing and dancing joyfully made her flip? And before you say something along the lines of “we don’t know exactly what was going on there that triggered her” I’ll stop you. Because you would be ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. We don’t know her OR the psychiatrist (if there even was one) who diagnosed her so we can’t just jump to defend her. Unless of course you know this woman personally and can vouch for her character, medical records and time in service sir.

        You leap to conclusions faster than a kangaroo on steroids. I said nothing about the reason for her assault, but was merely responding rationally to the mad rantings of Ceas Tha GIANT.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        So I’m guessing you’re my 1 dislike. “She had PTSD from the service to ALL AMERICANS and the trauma that she endured. Give her a little slack for that.” What do you mean jumping to conclusions? You are AGREEING with the news saying she has PTSD without proof of it.

      • Robert Riversong

        And you earned another thumbs down for a second example of intellectual dishonesty.

        Accepting a news report that she suffers from PTSD, absent any evidence to the contrary, is NOT the same as accepting that the PTSD was the reason for the assault, as you erroneously imputed to me.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        You’re hiding behind your vocabulary. Good day Sir.

      • Robert Riversong

        You’re the one pretending erudition while engaging in blatant sophistry.

        I post here under my name and hide behind nothing.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        And you changed your avi from a Koala Bear to yourself (I’m assuming that is you) to make that point? Ok. I don’t need to prove my credentials to you Sir. I agreed and disagreed with somethings you said. But as I’ve stated before, the weak minded always result to name calling, false allegations and extreme/absurd use of the english vocabulary when faced with the truth. AGAIN. SHALOM sir.

      • Robert Riversong

        That was Yoda, but I guess cultural intelligence is not required on this topic.

        Credentials mean nothing to me. What matters is integrity and honesty, of which you are sorely lacking.

        Evidence of that is your retort subsequent to your statement of departure.

        I speak only the truth, but it is a truth which the dishonest and biased are unwilling to hear.

        The evidence of weak mind is entirely on your part, and you know that.
