There was a trial with a specific outcome. For those opposed to the outcome, it is important to have their voices heard – to take to the streets in protest and demonstration. To show our nation that there is a voice of concern and desperation for change. Through peaceful, thought-out, meaningful expressions of love for the fallen.
Los Angeles, July 15, 2013 - Protesters riot in the Crenshaw District in Los Angeles, California after Zimmerman was found not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin. Protestors violently attacked bystanders, vandalized cars in traffic, stormed businesses, threw rocks and bricks at police and squad cars.
Through radical actions in Los Angeles, these protestors became the monster they claim
Zimmerman to be. It dishonor’s the memory of Trayvon Martin. To protest violence with violence is wrong. Doing so destroys the credibility of the argument. We must battle racism, bias and prejudices the right way, legally and peacefully.
Martin Luther King Jr. has been an inspiration for many Americans. He was known for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. King was inspired by the non-violent
activism of Gandhi. During a radio address in India, King said, “... the method of nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for justice and human dignity.”
