‘Million Hoodie March’ for Trayvon Martin attracts Jamie Foxx


No one was expecting millions to attend a candlelight vigil for Trayvon Martin in New York City’s Union Square tonight, but the gathering of hundreds did get a celebrity boost from “Django Unchained” star Jamie Foxx.

Today is day of mourning, but also a call for organized resistance against authority, Law and Order & racism #TrayvonMartin #MillionHoodies

I have bad premonition that the #NYPD will be beating up people in #TrayvonMartin vigil. Doing so, will unleash more righteous anger. Don’t.

Very somber march, I was expecting rage, but this is very appropriate too. #millionhoodies #TrayvonMartin

New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams was in attendance, sporting an “Occupy” button.

1 year later, there’s too much #gunviolence and too much #racialprofiling. Speak out or sit down. #JusticeforTrayvon. twitter.com/JumaaneWilliam…

Other celebs and media personalities who didn’t attend in person tweeted their support, although as with Randi Weingarten, what had begun as an argument about racial profiling took on elements of gun control.

#Trayvon Martin. How should we remember him? Let’s demand an end to racial profiling and fight for common sense gun safety laws and reform.

— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) February 27, 2013

We remember and honor the life of Travon Martin as we walk forward in love and oneness.

“@youranonnews: Rest In Peace Trayvon Martin. 1 year today. #HoodiesUp

— Tom Morello (@tmorello) February 26, 2013

@tmorello Gone but not forgotten. Too bad a death has to happen for people to understand why guns should not be allowed in homes.
