Outrage and actions still growing in the wake of the Florida murder of Trayvon Martin: a new police chief and prosecutor, possible civil rights and grand jury charges, much angry commentary, a Million Hoodie March in New York and a Change.org petition that has now garnered over a million and a half signatures, many bearing poignant comments. LeBron James and his Miami Heat teammates assembled for a powerful ' We Are Trayvon Martin' photo, and Samuel Jackson shot a short angry video about blame. Over at Fox News, though, readers have declared Martin "a little thug ghetto monkey." Just wow.
Who are these people?
