So I’m confused as to why the internet keeps trying to tell me that this image:
…is an image of a rally in San Francisco that was held to support justice for Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old that was killed when George Zimmerman, the local neighborhood-watch guy spotted him, followed him, confronted him, ended up in a fight with him and then shot him dead.
The image above was published in The Guardian on Friday, 25 May 2012. This picture is image 6 in the slide show entitled:
I don’t think tricking people into supporting your cause is cool, guys. Even if it’s for a good cause, it doesn’t look good. My husband made an excellent point while I was discussing this with him earlier. He said, “Instead of lying about the picture, they should use it as a call to action.” I agree whole-heartedly.
If 300,000 people can organize and gather to wish a bridge a happy birthday, they can most certainly come together to ask Florida to check itself before it wrecks itself.
Be peaceful in your protests folks, don’t let us prove them right.
