THE TRAGIC CONSEQUENCES OF INJUSTICE
THIS WEBSITE IS DEDICATED TO EXPOSING THE TRUE INJUSTICE SUFFERED BY LENWOOD "SKIP" HAMILTON
Hamilton has every reason to be bitter yet he wants to trust everyone, often to a fault. Why does he always see the good in people rather than cast a wary eye?
"I've never had hatred in my heart for no one," Hamilton says.
Why does "Skip" Hamilton believe he has a story to tell?
Lenwood Hamilton is amazed he still is alive at age 54. He survived tremendous physical and mental abuse by the age of eight. He wears the emotional scars of not being wanted by his closest family members. He's escaped near-death incidents as a youngster and as an adult. He was sexually violated in a group home by a boy twice his age. His glory years in high school were at an almost all-white middle class school where he was one of two African-American athletes, leading to bouts of racism. Academic deficiencies and an inability to harness his good times off the field spoiled a promising football career at North Carolina State, where he was on scholarship. He's coped with the disappointment of coming so close to reaching his dream of playing in the National Football League. He endured approximately five months in a New Orleans maximum security prison after being the only one of five Southern University football players convicted of attempted forcible rape. Charges were eventually dropped when witnesses for the accuser admitted they had lied on the stand to protect her trumped up story. He has seen teammates and friends who achieved more than he did pass away at a young age, some from the effects of playing pro football. More than anything, Hamilton believes others can benefit from his experiences, especially youngsters who may be facing similar crises alone.
