Miami Heat superstar Lebron James tweeted out a picture of the entire Heat team wearing hoodies in support of murdered Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.
James tweeted out the picture of the entire Heat team with their heads down and black hoodies on along with the hashtags: #WeAreTrayvon Martin #Hoodies #Stereotyped #WeWantJustice.
Martin, a 17-year-old high school student, was shot and killed by George Zimmerman on Feb. 26th while walking home from a convenience store after purchasing a drink and a bag of Skittles. Zimmerman claims that he shot Martin, an African-American, in self-defense, but many news organizations have raised serious doubts about Zimmerman's story.
Martin was unarmed, but Zimmerman allegedly felt he was acting suspicious when he walked out of the 7-Eleven wearing his hood over his head. The hoodie has served as a rallying cry around the country with organizers putting together a Million Hoodie March and now James tweeting out his support for the cause with the hoodie picture.
Even President Barack Obama has come out in support of Martin when he told reporters on Friday that, If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon. I think they are right to expect that all of us as Americas are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves.
