The not guilty verdict rendered in favor of George Zimmerman was an approval of oppression. It was a vote of confidence for anyone who claims the sight of young black men outside of impoverished neighborhoods to be suspicious, and deserving of scrutiny. That not-guilty verdict attempted to negate the obvious hatred and prejudice that saw Trayvon Martin's light extinguished by a man (Zimmerman) who has only forestalled justice; he has not escaped it.
The medias demonization of black men, young and old, must end. BTG stands in solidarity with the Martin family and urges all moral, God conscious, upright people--irrespective of race or religion--to not only condemn the decision rendered by the jury, but to also work toward affecting the changes needed to bring about true justice and equality for all.
