You’ve heard about the case of Trayvon Martin, a Florida teenager, allegedly shot and killed by a neighborhood watch captain named George Zimmerman. No charges have been filed in the case.

Talking-without-ever-saying-anything-head Geraldo Rivera sparked disgust and outrage Friday when he said Martin was partially responsible for his death because he was wearing a hoodie. The Fox News host later revealed that even his own son was dismayed by the comments.

Well, the Miami Heat and the NBA feel differently, and stars like Dwanye Wade and Amare Stoudemire have shown their solidarity for Martin, wearing their hoodies. Also, the NBA Players Union has called for some actual arrests and resignations to be made in this case.

Lebron James sent a very powerful message about this with a photo. As you might expect, it includes hoodies.

He posted the moving photo below on his Facebook page

The caption reads “We Are Trayvon Martin. Hoodies. Stereotyped. We Want Justice.” It’s received over 3,500 comments, 60,000 likes and 7,600 have shared it.
