It was the verdict heard ’round the world. George Zimmerman. Not guilty.
And then the reactions poured in from social media. And it wasn’t just us regular people, celebs had a lot to say. And not just the celebs who have been open supporters of the Martin family from the beginning [like Russell Simmons and Jamie Foxx] but a ton of them – and lots of white celebrities!
I feel sick. #RipTrayvonMartin
No. My heart is with Sybrina Fulton, Rachel Jeantel, everyone who loved Trayvon and has been sent the message that his life didn’t matter.
My heart goes out to Trayvon Martin’s family & loved ones. Thought & prayers being sent their way #NoJustice
My heart is heavy…for all who knew and loved #TrayvonMartin. His life mattered. This is shameful.
Had a gun-toting Trayvon Martin stalked an unarmed George Zimmerman, and then shot him to death… DO I EVEN NEED TO COMPLETE THIS SENTENCE?
Ugh, my tummy turns. RT “@RonanFarrow: American justice: still colorblind (as long as you’re white).”
That he didn’t get at least manslaughter blows my mind. Heart hurts for the Martin family.
unarmed teenagers have a right to public space – without owning armed citizens any explanation as to their equal right to the sidewalk.
This has to be a call to action. We must participate in the political process and demand the justice system we ALL deserve.
I can’t handle this. All that really matters are Trayvon’s parents, and making sure nothing like this ever happens again.
