Celebrities, Athletes and Thousands More Wear Hoodies in Support of Trayvon Martin

Thousands across the country donned hoodies yesterday in remembrance of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old who was shot to death by a neighborhood watch captain in Florida last month. The shooting has sparked a nationwide uproar over race and justice, with even President Obama weighing in.

Thousands of people participated in the Million Hoodies March in cities across the country to seek justice for Martin, who was wearing a hoodie when he was killed.

“I didn’t know wearing a hoodie made me a target,” tweeted the Diddy, while Swizz Beatz wrote, “Had to Hoodie up for Trayvon. What a sad situation! Blessing to his fam.”

Many celebrities voiced their support via social media, while Ludacris, Jamie Foxx, Frank Ocean, Nelly, The-Dream, and players from the Miami Heat sported hoodies in a showing of solidarity.  It’s a beautiful thing  when we as people can ALL unite for the greater good.  Life would be so much better if we implemented that type of compassion on a daily basis!!!
