Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich appeared on the Sean Hannity Radio show today and said he found President Obama’s comments “if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon” “disgraceful” and “appalling.” Gingrich said Obama “trying to turn” the death of Martin “into a racial issue” was “fundamentally wrong.”
It’s amazing they’re still even alive?! Look at them, they’re totally asking for it.
I can’t believe FOX News is still selling these.
LeBron James tweeted it, along with the message, “#WeAreTrayvonMartin #Hoodies #Stereotyped #WeWantJustice”.

In solidarity with the slain Florida teen, people have been posting photos of themselves in a hoodie to Instagram. The quest for social justice found the perfect marriage to the desire to post cute pictures of yourself on social networks.
More than a thousand people marched from New York’s Union Square through the city tonight, chanting “We are all Trayvon Martin.” They demanded the arrest of George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Florida, who shot the unarmed teenager.
The death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teenager allegedly killed by a neighborhood watch captain while walking home from a store, highlights just how unfair justice in America can be.
