A narrow stairwell at Florida Memorial University leads to rooms filled with collages and paintings from around the country.
While the artwork varies in style, theres one common theme: almost all of the pieces depict a young man in a hooded sweatshirt.
This is the headquarters of the Trayvon Martin Foundation, established by Martins parents after the Miami Gardens teen was killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
Zimmerman was acquitted last year after a racially charged, contentious trial.

Trayvon was going to give up thievery and was bound for collitch. Right.
How much is the Traayvon skolarship worth?
Good for them! Let’s pass through and jump out of the hedges and beat the sh!t out of the Dean

....majoring in pot smoking and petty burglary?
And that, Catsrus, is EEEExactly why we’re here. ;>}
Millions already do. Just look at Chicago, Detroit, Compton, Oakland, etc., etc...
majors in b&e, purple drank, blamin whitey, the knockout game, blame the victim - taught by the visiting prof retaining the tawana brawley chair, and let’s not forget, where’s my reparations, beeoych?
How utterly revolting.
Trayvon represented everything that the black community should fight against and reject, to save their children.
Instead, they follow their little smug, white, liberal plantation overseers into self-degredation after self-degredation, and raise this thug onto a pedestal.
In the name of social justice, no less.
