From the very beginning, social media has been a major force behind the Trayvon Martin story.
The Secret Power Of Black Twitter
Especially on Twitter, where a movement called "Black Twitter" is taking over.
CNN's Don Lemon is OutFront with the story.
pray for america
I just listened to Don Lemon about calling his mother because she wanted to know he was safe. I called my mother & father every day to let them know I was safe & too make sure they also where safe, I'm 70 & white. I can remember being picked on by blacks when I was young in school & had to run away from a possible bad day at a N Dame football game. It's our world we live in. Every race has good & bad. Know body knows the real story about T Martin or Zimmermin except God.
Sorry Ron for your hard time you had from African Americans but we are not all like that. A lot of these ignorant people come from children whose parents never married usually and left to raise themselves or parents don't get along and separate or divorce. You are so right that there are good and bad in EVERY RACE. God will hold people accountable one day and there will not be any excuse. We all have a responsibility to make and keep peace. Report and not take the law into your own hands. If nothing is done, keep telling someone. One day you will get caught if you are doing wrong and they will not like it. Look at the mass killings of children at a school, that was not black people, 911, mass killings in the movie theater, serial killers of women, and the list goes on. So people need to stop acting like black people are the worst people in the world. Many times we are fasely accused and it makes many blacks wanting to take the law into their own hands like other people.
Nothing racial here, move along...
I am the leader of black twitter follow me @BasedPaco
Enough with the Zimmerman case. It's over!!!!!!!! There are other important stories in the world to report.
If something is wrong, its wrong to not speak out against it. The case is over.... but it revealed a lot about America that can't be ignored. (And everyone who says this case has nothing to do with race needs to realize, this was a catalyst.)
won't be over til you can stop the race problem. Can you do that please, since you got so much to say. There is nothing more important here in America, the country the white man took.
