Trayvon Martin rallies - No Justice - No Peace

There were 2 rallies held today in the name of justice for the recently slain teen.

Left-wing radio host Joe Madison — known as the “Black Eagle” — spoke about how he thinks the shooting of Martin is a sign of overt racism.
“In America, we are culturally conditioned to believe that white is superior, black is inferior,” Madison said. “The manifestation of that cultural valuing is that black people are undervalued, underestimated and marginalized.” Source:
