Trayvon Martin

“Oh yea and tell Jay-Z he’s a bitch and his wife is a broke whore.”

“Who can trust this man in any interaction with an African American?” the bartender said. “How can this man make sure any mixed cultures are ‘secure’?”

Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story premieres July 30 on the Paramount Network.

Here's how Chadwick Boseman ended up sharing the screen with Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin.

Worth the wait.

Witnesses don't entirely agree on what happened at the Florida restaurant, but it seems to have involved a bragging Zimmerman, a man with "racist" tattoos, and another man who fled on a Harley-Davidson.

“It was unbelievable in the fact that it wasn’t unbelievable.”

"We have the equal right to live."

Auction site United Gun Group said it created two auctions for the gun — one real with pre-qualified bidders — and one fake to "troll the trolls."

Bidding for the gun was supposed to open at $5,000 when it was first posted online Wednesday, but the sale has been stopped three times. United Gun Group said the last time it was removed because of false bids.

Everyone wants to be black until it's time to be black.

"We knew that to get sufficient enough of evidence, Trayvon would have to be here to tell his story," Tracy Martin told BuzzFeed News.

The Department of Justice has concluded its federal investigation into the killing of Trayvon Martin and will not bring charges against George Zimmerman.

Band members also wore shirts displaying the words "I can't breathe." The phrases reference the deaths of black men including Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

The 31-year-old was arrested in January for allegedly throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend.

A Judge set Zimmerman's bond for $5,000 and ordered him to turn over his firearms.

Demonstrators took to the streets in New York City, Berkeley, Seattle, Chicago, and other cities. On Monday, they closed a major highway leading to a bridge during rush hour.

"They have names."

Eleven lives that were cut short for no good reason.

Benjamin Crump has been representing young black victims of alleged police violence, and their families, for years. "These families want a fighter. It's hard for them to fight because they’re in the middle of grieving."

Jeff Triplett, the part-time mayor of the town where Trayvon Martin was shot, says the Justice Department saved the day in Sanford.

People in the local community aren't really sure what to make of it.

"At 19, everything seemed possible and life seemed infinite. It was like just being born."

Zimmerman confirmed the account on his eBay listing for his original painting. His brother Robert Zimmerman Jr. also confirmed the account.

TheRealGeorgeZ on eBay, Zimmerman says he has found a "creative way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences."

From Cyrus to Syria.

"It's time that we look out for the youth and fight against racism and the laws that protect it," the rapper said at the American Music Awards.

Theodore P. Wafer, 54, faces charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of 19-year-old Renisha McBride.

"This is another teenager who should be living their life and pursuing their dreams and aspirations and instead there are grieving parents who are left empty because of another senseless act of gun violence."

Ugh.

Is this the most offensive Halloween costume ever?

"I truly forgive him. I pray for him. And I pray that he gets off the police force," Georgia Ferrell said of the police officer who shot and killed her son. "You took a piece of my heart that I can never get back."

Shellie Zimmerman says her husband felt invincible and was selfish and verbally abusive after he was found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin.

In an interview with Good Morning America last week, Shellie Zimmerman said their marriage was strained.

She said she wasn't home the night of the shooting of Trayvon Martin because she'd had a fight with her husband.

"Trayvon Martin was likelier to have been one of those kids who killed Delbert Belton than to have been an innocent victim like him."

The episode features Cybill Shepherd and actors from The Wire and Arrested Development and will reportedly be called "American Tragedy."

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence video is titled "Stand Up to 'Stand Your Ground.'" The Coalition took some creative liberty with their reenactment.
