Mural shows man shooting likeness of Trayvon Martin

Post  fshnski on Mon Aug 12, 2013 8:48 am

An eye-grabbing mural showing a picture of a man shooting a likeness of Trayvon Martin was unveiled Friday at the state Capitol.

The message of the 100-foot mural, created by Miami artist Huong, is "We are all Trayvon Martin."

The mural shows a man who looks similar to George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch leader who shot and killed Martin in February 2012 and was later acquitted in the teen's death, shooting a person wearing a hoodie. There's a mirror in the mural where Martin's face would be so visitors can see themselves as the teen.

The mural also contains blank spaces where the public can share their thoughts, and it also shows a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. with blood flowing down his head.

Huong also joined the Dream Defenders, a group holding a sit-in protest outside Gov. Rick Scott's office for the past four weeks. The group plans on taking the artwork on a nationwide tour, although the exact locations are not yet known.

The Dream Defenders want Florida's Stand Your Ground law repealed, but Scott said he will not call a special session over the matter.

It's in the state capitol. I wonder if they allow a Christmas tree? I wonder if they care that Martin was not shot in the back of the head? I wonder what MLK's followers think about having him compared to a drug dealing thug?

That is disgusting. No, they probably don't allow a Christmas tree.

Facts don't matter, only propaganda. Also, why all the talk about "stand your ground"? The defense didn't even use that at all.
