Photos of Rally and March for Justice for Trayvon Martin

Hundreds of people showed up yesterday, July 14, at a rally and march to express their grief at the murder of another Black teenager, Trayvon Martin, and the verdict that acquitted his murderer, George Zimmerman.
Hundreds of people showed up yesterday, July 14, at a rally and march to express their grief at the murder of another Black teenager, Trayvon Martin, and the verdict that acquitted his murderer, George Zimmerman. Ironically, Zimmerman's declaration "the assholes always get away" ended up applying to his acquittal. This case is evidence that in America, white supremacists/racists are still able to attack and kill people of color with impunity. Black Americans are not the only target; Mexicans have been murdered trying to cross the border by vigilante groups, and Moslems or people who look like "Arabs" have been attacked for years. I wish thousands more had shown up to protest these racist attacks and the injustices caused by institutionalized racism.
