Picture at Florida State Capitol depicts man looking like George Zimmerman shooting a person wearing a hoodie in the back, how Obama's words have an impact

Remember when President Obama proclaimed in July that "Trayvon Martin could have been me"?  A month later other prominent Blacks have taken up the same refrain. Some covers this month from Ebony magazine:




Well, now someone else has taken a cue from Obama and made a really outrageous picture saying that "We are all Trayvon Martin."  The reason that this picture is so outrageous is that it shows a person who looks like Zimmerman standing up and shooting in the back someone who is wearing a hoodie.  This shows that Obama's comments have real implications.


Of course, the Obama administration has played this up this case in other ways.  As CBS notes:

A museum director at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., said she would be interested in acquiring a symbolic and recent piece of American history. 
Trayvon Martin's hoodie - the sweatshirt he was wearing the night he was fatally shot by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Fla. - "became the symbolic way to talk [about] the Trayvon Martin case," Lonnie Bunch, the director of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture, told The Washington Post. 
As legal proceedings have come to an end, the hoodie is likely back in the hands of the Sanford Police Department and Trayvon Martin's family will be given a chance to claim it. . . .

What is outrageous is the fact that an criminal has been made a martyr, and the truth be damned.
