Beyonce was joined by her mother, Tina Knowles, as they walked alongside over 2,000 protestors in Lower Manhattan.  And it's clear that the Trayvon Martin verdict has touched the hearts of the entire Knowles family.  A few day agoSolange Knowles participated in a rally at Borough Hall in Brooklyn.

Rev. Sharpton remarked about the couple's appearance at the rally saying,

"Jay-Z and Beyonce said they didn't want to speak and they didn't come for a photo op. Jay-Z told me, 'I'm a father. Beyoncé is a mother.' We all feel the pain and apprehension – the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn't protect anybody ... We do not come from hate, we come from love of children."

The ‘Justice for Trayvon Martin’ protest began with a press conference at Rev. Sharpton's NAN offices where Sybrina told the crowd;

“George Zimmerman started the fight and George Zimmerman ended the fight.  My son died without even knowing who his killer was ... Today it was my son. Tomorrow it might be yours.”

As for how she felt about the verdict, Sybrina said, “We have moved on from the verdict. Of course, we’re hurting. Of course we’re shocked and disappointed. But that just means we have to roll up our sleeves and fight.”

 

The NYC protest was one of several that took place around the nation.  In Chicago.....

Rapper MC Lyte (who posed with Rev. Jesse Jackson) spoke to over 500 people rallied across from the Everett McKinley Dirksen federal courthouse. She shared, "When the verdict was read, I felt like we lost Trayvon Martin all over again.

And in San Diego,

Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson addressed the racially charged case at Comic-Con in San Diego.  Though he was there to promote his role as the villain Electro in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2," Jaime also offered support to Trayvon's mom, Sybrina.

“She’s always been courageous in saying this has never been about race. She said it’s about 17-year-old kids. We have to protect our kids. So I stand with her forever."

He also commented on gun violence in America saying,

“When you look at Sandy Hook and Aurora and all these different things where we’re losing our children. Chicago — 67 kids, people killed in a week — we have an epidemic. And it’s up to us as the grown folks to be smart enough and intelligent and nice to each other to have a difference of opinion, but also understand that we have to come to a solution.”

And when Samuel Jackson was asked about the rallies being held in Trayvon's honor in dozens of US cities, he said, he was "encouraged by the attitude of people after the verdict, that people are willing to stand up and take a stand and get out in the streets, and let their voices be heard.”

You have to ask yourself why

You have to ask yourself why do white people kill black folks and get away with it. It's not just the laws. We kill each other every day with guns, drugs and the words we say about each. There is nothing wrong with having an opinion but some of the things we say about Black celebs and other Black people on the blogs are so nasty and vicious. Self hate is real. Some times we don't even know were doing it. Example: Nigga is not a loving and kind word. I don't care how you pronounce it or spell it.....alllllll-right

No, Ms Twinky, its not a

No, Ms Twinky, its not a fail. When is the last time you seen a protest about whites getting killed on a regular basis. Whites have been killing us since we landed here. And it's ok for them to do so. As the president said we have a History and we don't forget. This is a Tavon Martin post, right. I never read Bey or Riri(I'm not a fan of either) post because of all the nasty things that are said about both. No they are perfect and neither are you. I'm not talking about the funny little KiKi comments. I'm talking about the nasty vicious ones that you have no proof of. Just because you don't like the artist. You don't know these ppl or have any proof of what you say. This is the self hate I'm talking about. Just think before you type "Would I have the balls to say this to some ones face" and deal with the consequence's(with out the fear of getting my teeth knocked out). Hold your self up to a higher standard than being a coward behind a computer.......allllll-right

People hide behind computers

People hide behind computers and have the courage to say things they never would say to a person's face. It's not just black people. I do not read comments on tmz, yahoo, or msn because it is disgusting.
