Above: Trayvon Martin’s killer George Zimmerman (L) and Trayvon Martin (R)
If you are black you are Trayvon Martin therefore let us work together to fight racist views about black people and make sure the killer of Trayvon Martin is persecuted. “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor” Elder Desmond Tutu
What can you do?
1. Know the story- a 17 years old African-American boy Trayvon Martin went out to get skittles (candy/sweet) and a drink (ice tea) in his father’s gated neighborhood store on his way back, a member of the neighborhood watcher claimed that Martin looked suspicious, hence he shot him like a dog and the police are yet to arrest the murderer
2. Take action by signing this petition Prosecute the killer of our son, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin my continental Africans in the diaspora you can say oh this is African-Americans problem, but as you know racial profiling/murder does’t wait to hear your “nice” accent remember 23 years old late Amadou Diallo from Guinea,West Africa who was shot 41 times by 4 officers all because they suspected he was armed. If you are black in America it doesn’t matter ..my white/brown/etc associates esp those of you that believe in “one world” this is your chance to show Martin and thousand other black boys/men that you believe your words- solidarity!
3. Stop encouraging racist system that oppresses black people criminalizing black boys even before they are born.
