Spencer Smith, a history teacher at Heritage High School in Brentwood, Calif., decided to wear a hoodie and hold up a pack of Skittles in an apparent tribute to Trayvon Martin for the school's yearbook.

Amber McKim, a sophomore at Heritage High School, told reporters that she thought the symbolism of it was fine, but would have rathered Smith do it on Facebook and not in the school's yearbook.

Students on Twitter are equally split about Smith's photo.

I would support Mr. Smith if he really cared about the trayvon case but we all know he doesn't he does all of this for attention
