Million Hoodie March: Trayvon Martin
The only defense against injustice is justice. Americans of all races and ages are questioning the presence of justices concerning Trayvon Martin. The main question is equality; “Is everyone equal, under the law?” Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17 year old Florida high school student, was shot in front of his stepmother’s home by self proclaimed neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman. Zimmerman claimed self-defense, but how can this be when all Trayvon Martin carried with him was a bag of skittles and a can of Ice tea.
That night Zimmerman made a non emergency call to 911, in which he sounds intoxicated but was never tested for alcohol. In the back ground you hear innocent Trayvon Martin pleading for help and assistance, but no one came to his rescue.
This incident has caused man to question our justice system. Are we equal? Theoretically, on paper, however in reality, this could be farther from the truth. Today, many Black parents have to worry about the safety of their children, even to walk the streets, without being harmed.
Americans are uniting to take a stand, but it’s truly sad what the outcome had to be; an innocent person losing his life. This case, like many hundreds of years before, raises the issues of civil rights, victim’s rights, and the right to bear arms. Another Martin had a dream that we will all be one, let us not forget that dream. Justice for Trayvon Martin!!!
