The shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26 has set off a nationwide debate over race and justice. Martin was shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who claimed he shot the teen in self-defense. Now, protesters around the country have donned hoodies in honor of the clothing Martin was wearing when he was killed.
In this image posted to Miami Heat basketball player LeBron James' Twitter page, Miami Heat players wear team hoodies in solidarity with Martin. On Thursday, March 22, 2012, Heat stars Dwyane Wade and James decided to make their reactions about the Trayvon Martin situation public, and James felt the best way to do that was the team photo with everyone wearing hoodies.
