VLOG: Trayvon Martin Is Not Just a Black Thing Its a People Thing

I finally decided to do another video blog. I haven’t done one since the one I did while I was at Blogging While Brown when I won a Black Weblog Award. With that being said this Trayvon Martin situation has really been getting to me. If you haven’t heard about the Trayvon He was a 17-year-old boy who was gunned down by George Zimmerman a self-appointed Neighborhood Watch Captain in a suburban Orlando neighborhood.

  2. I’ve cried and cried over this due to all the underlining implications it brings up. It seems all of my African American male friends have a story of being “under suspicion” and approached by “the law” at one time or another. It saddens me on such a profound deep soul level it almost paralyzes me to do anything at all. Great video (sharing right now) and thank you for taking signing the petition a step further by compiling this list of names, I too will be contacting some folks after I press send…(and get some more Kleenex). You’re my hero for the day :)
