Beyonce asked for a moment of silence for Trayvon Martin at her concert Sunday. Rapper Young Jeezy posted a song in the late teenager's memory.
Stevie Wonder went one step further and vowed never to perform again in Florida, the state where George Zimmerman was acquitted on Saturday in the shooting death of Martin on Feb. 26, 2012.
"I decided today that until the Stand Your Ground law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again," the Motown legend said Sunday night while performing in Quebec City. "As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world."

The verdict was correct. He'd have to be blind not to see it.

  • I may not be the smartest, or the best looking, or the most successful but...what was I saying? I'm depressed.

Everyone needs to accept the verdict and move on.

Sadly, when one chooses to attack another person, one also chooses that the person being attacked might fear for their life and might be packing iron.
