Kingsrowe Million Hoodie Activism

COLUMBUS. OH- Power 107.5 radio personality Misty Jordan ( @MistyPower1075) supports the Trayvon Martin "Million Hoodie March" movement by sporting the red Rolo Zip-Up Hoody from Kingsrowe.

For more information on the issue at hand let me fill you in.

A march took place Wednesday evening in Manhattan
calling for justice in the case of Trayvon Martin. He was an unarmed
black teenager who was shot to death by a neighborhood watch captain in
Florida last month.

In
New York, Martin's parents told demonstrators chanting "we want
arrests"  that they will keep fighting to get justice for their son. "My
son did not deserve to die," Tracy Martin, Trayvon Martin's father,
said on Wednesday. He immediately thanked the hundreds of people who
participated in a march in his son's memory.

Martin, 17, a high
school junior, was unarmed and wearing a hoodie when he was fatally
shot. Wednesday's demonstration in Union Square was dubbed the "Million
Hoodie March." Many participants wore hooded sweatshirts for the march,
which was billed as a demonstration to put an end to racial profiling, CBS New York reports.

Martin
was killed Feb. 26 in Sanford, Florida. He was returning to a gated
community in the city after buying candy at a convenience store when he
was shot by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, who has not
been charged in the shooting. He has said the teen attacked him and he
shot him in self-defense.

The demonstrators greeted the teen's parents with "God bless you!"

Sybrina
Fulton, Trayvon Martin's mother, told the crowd: "My heart is in pain,
but to see the support of all of you really makes a difference."

"This is not a black and white thing - this is about a right or wrong thing," Fulton, said.

Racism is alive and well, but if we starve it, it will die slow.
