The shooting death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin continues to shock and sadden people across the globe. Martin was unarmed and walking back from the store to his dad’s house when he was gunned down by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida last month. Zimmerman has yet to be charged in the teen’s death.
Many Americans have taken to the streets in protest, wearing hoodies similar to the one Martin was wearing on the night he died.
Some celebrities are also showing their support. Jamie Foxx, Diddy, The-Dream, Frank Ocean, Nelly and Swizz Beatz took pictures wearing hoodies and posted them on Twitter and other social networking sites.
Jamie Foxx tweeted:
“God bless Trayvon Martin and his family. Humans but we’re losing the race”.
“My hoody will be on forever”.
