Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade is the latest celebrity to publicly come out in support of Trayvon Martin.

Wade posted the picture above on his Twitter page on Friday and made it his avatar as well.

Along with the picture, Wade added the hashtags: #hoodies, #stereotype and #trayvonmartin.

Several other actors and sports stars are posting pictures of themselves in hoodies in honor of the Miami Gardens teenager.

Thugocracy continues. Everyone assigning guilt to Mr. Zimmerman ought to be ashamed. At least Wade is just doing a "remembrance".

By the way, does Wade know Trayvon was apparently on top of Mr. Zimmerman, punching him?

You can hear Zimmerman yelling for help on the neighbor’s 911 call.

If you wear a hoodie into my bank branch you will find yourself staring at the police officer’s Glock immediately.

They were robbed by guys in hoodies before.

Even if he does, it probably doesn’t matter.

So-called “Black leaders” don’t care when blacks shoot it out daily on MLK Blvd and leave a 5 year old girl dead because they can’t exploit it for political purposes.

In Detroit a black 80 some year old WWII vet was beaten and his car stolen with him being left to crawl across the parking lot as bystanders walked on by on MLK day.

“Well, at the very least, we know he supports a thug.”

The one thing we do know is that Trayvon was a thug and had no business stalking Mr. Zimmerman’s neighborhood that night wearing a hoodie.

Like Rahm Emmanuel said, "Never let a crisis happen without taking full advantage of it"

40 people were shot in Chicago last weekend. One a 5 year old girl. Guess the shooters were not white enough.

All of these people are up in arms because of sensationilism disguised as journalism. No one really knows for sure what happened. But they all want to string up Zimmerman without charges being filed or an actual trial.

In our system of justice, we are innocent until proven guilty. Yet so many want to suspend that concept for Mr. Zimnerman. So if we do, then what? Who will be next? You or someone close to you? Are we going to start banging on doors at midnight, dragging people away without charge simply because we don’t like them?

We are coming dangerously close to having this great nation turn into a banana republic. Or Nazi Germany. Wake up, people!

No, what we KNOW from the 911 tapes is that Zimmerman was being badly beaten. We also know that he probably should not have been chasing Trayvon, but wouldn’t Zimmerman have the right to defend himself when he’s being beaten?

“So-called “Black leaders” don’t care when blacks shoot it out daily on MLK Blvd and leave a 5 year old girl dead because they can’t exploit it for political purposes.”

That’s just called the cost of doing business.. if you’re in the race pimpin’ business that is.

A 13-year-old boy who police say was doused with gasoline and lit on fire last week while walking home from school...

Police have described the suspects as black 16-year-olds, while the victim is white.

“They rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open,” Coon told KMBC. “(One of them) poured the gasoline, then flicked the Bic, and said, ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.’”

They are desperately looking for a crises and have jumped the shark on a couple of things; Fluke (fail, they didn’t get Rush or any conservative radio hosts canned), Trayvon (fail, oops, Zimmerman is a hispanic and not White nor Jewish)

I think the democrats want blood on the streets and neighborhoods on fire.

Just like the muslime women who wear burkas because they aren't smart enough not to, I wonder if the hoodie is the New Burka.

In Minnesota, we wear t-shirts and shorts when it gets up to the mid 60s.

or how about this one?

Not one single liberal would have cared about this kid if he’d been aborted by his mother.

I know. I know. That’s just simpleton talk.

65 degrees is about the top end of hoodie weather for me when I’m idle.

I’m certainly not going to dance to the liberal beat on this. They can KMA because I’ll wear my hoodie if I want to.

He and others who “don hoodies in memorium” deserve our derisive laughter. This is absurd.

I’m sure that’s why the Police didn’t arrest Zimmerman. I heard he required stitches in the back of his head. When I first heard the screams, I thought it was Trayvon. The screams are Zimmerman getting his face and head beat in, which can easily result in a coma or death. He screamed for help before reaching for his gun. I remember a case of road rage in Arizona a few years ago. A huge bodybuilder got out of his truck with an axe handle. The other motorist pulled out his pistol and shot him in the head. No charges were filed as he reasonably felt his life was in danger.

I know it is old-fashioned. Free America. Constitution. Rule of Law. Innocent until proven guilty.

I heard on talk radio that this Trayvon character had quite a rap sheet including a restraining order by a girlfriend and interfering with a police officer.
