The entire world watched live footage of the Million Hoodie March yesterday in Union Square / NYC in honor of murdered black teen Trayvon Martin. Martin’s parents told demonstrators, who were chanting, “WE ARE TRAYVON MARTIN” & “NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE” that ‘Trayvon did not deserve to die’. We already know.
Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother, told the crowd: “My heart is in pain, but to see the support of all of you really makes a difference.”
“This is not a black and white thing – this is about a right or wrong thing,” Fulton, said.
The protests in NYC and in Sanford, FL (today lead by Rev. Al Sharpton) are in lieu of the killer, George Zimmerman, not being arrested for the death of Trayvon. As of now, Zimmerman is still a free man walking around still with a license to carry a concealed weapon.
The Trayvon Martin incident is a HUGE injustice to the American public. The protests are just the beginning…
