@Toure: Trayvon Martin killed for HWB (Hoodieing While Black)
@UncleRUSH (Russell Simmons): Trayvon Martin didn’t die so we can create a race war he died so we can promote better understanding. We must start honest dialogue….
@rolandsmartin: Now all of a sudden Fla Gov Rick Scott is launching an investigation into the #Trayvon Martin shooting. Way to stay ahead of the game, Rick!
@rolandsmartin: My anger goes beyond just the #Trayvon Martin case. It points to how these stories are marginalized and ignored. Too few of us in the newsrooms!
@Oprah: @Richardafowler yes, and I think it’s a good thing when people are OUTRAGED by injustice. It speaks to our humanity. Apathy is an enemy.
@therealmikeepps: White people you will never look suspect like trayvon Martin !!
@johnlegend: Yes, even if he didn’t say “fuckin coons” there’s still clearly racist motives at play. He judged him at a distance then acted.
@dreamhampton: We lift Trayvon up when we say his name, when we give him our attention, but spend time today meditating on some good too.
@dreamhampton: I hate the sanctimonious way ppl try to shame ppl for the way they react to a tragedy like Trayvon Martin, or Oscar Grant, or the next.

@DrStevePerry: As a father, principal & educated Black man I should feel powerful. Instead I feel more vulnerable than ever. Justice can’t survive silence.
@DrStevePerry: Trayvon’s dad put it best when he posited – ‘If my son was the 1 who shot a White man he would not be walking around free.’ Sounds about rt
@DrStevePerry: It breaks my heart as a father, principal & Black man to again admit that it just ain’t safe to be a black male. We’re dying of everything..
@DrStevePerry: The 911 tapes of a child CLEARLY SCREAMING for help followed a single point blank gunshot is the most disturbing thing I’ve ever heard.
@RealDlHughley: What happened 2 Trayvon Martin is the GREATEST fear of every parent of a black male child! It keeps u awake til they walk through the door!
@andersoncooper: I just intvd #trayvonmartin’s father. He insists it’s his son’s voice on the 911 call crying out for help. @AC360 8p, 10p
@andersoncooper: Do you think if #trayvonmartin had been white would he have been labeled “suspicious”? Would his shooter have been arrested? @AC360, 8p, 10p
