Bryant spoke with The Daily Caller’s Alex Pappas Monday and, telling him that Martin’s family “should be outraged at the fact that they’re using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions.”

Martin hit back at the Bryant: “Right, here’s what what I would tell Rev. CL Bryant. How much attention did this story get before black bloggers and folks in social media began to drive the story? Would have you a special prosecutor right now had the attention not been placed on it? I would say absolutely not!”

“And I would say, where’s Rev. C.L. Bryant?” Martin added. “Where’s he fighting for justice? It’s as simple as that.”
