Boyz in the Hood

Yesterday NYC participated in the Million Hoodie March, to raise awareness murdered teenager Trayvon Martin. The crowd was joined by Travyon’s parents who urged for calm but also for justice. Participants wore hoodies similar to the one Trayvon was in before he was murdered and the piece of clothing that deemed him “suspicious”. While many want to pretend this crime isn’t “race related” even though his murder and the handling of his murder say otherwise I want to focus on this fact this was a child going home to his father’s home murdered 70-ft from it . I look at my nephew in his hoodie and cringe that could have been my baby, look at the pictures below of the people who came out to show support for Trayvon and please lend your name to change.org.
