In light of the new developments in the Trayvon Martin case I felt compelled to do a post about my feelings on the case and to share some of the pictures that I took when Sam and I went to a peace rally a couple weeks ago. I am not going to dwell on the anger and sadness that I have regarding this case, but instead focus on the bigger picture; combating negative stereotypes. Trayvon was killed because of George Zimmerman's negative stereotype of a" young black male in a hoodie ", which lead to an unnecessary fear that caused him to react impulsively. The end result was the death of an innocent teenager.
What is Justice for Trayvon?
Revenge? Peace? Change? An arrest?

I am aware that this is not typical "personal style blog" material, but I wanted to use the small platform that I have to try and spread the word on how we need to challenge how we think and act. What can we do to combat negative sterotypes? Your thoughts?
