People like Oprah should take two seconds for thought before opening thier mouths, what a world we would be in if everyone did this. The end of this story is clearly Z and T are just poster boys for people to stir shit from high above the masses, nothing even close to new here.

Very true...

This all sorry saga has been by different political factions to push their own agendas...

Yeah, political, racial and every other classification.

jpierpont was saying this well before the verdict and I agreed with him.

This case was the perfect storm for people for people of all stripes to play into their fears and biases.

Note, there have been terrible murders since this case and none has resonated remotely as much.

I'm glad the mural got the details of the case right. It was key evidence of the prosecution's argument that Zimmerman was standing upright and shot Trayvon in the back of the head from several feet away. Shame the jury disregarded that and let that dirty brown murderer go free.

Tallahassee, Florida - A Florida artist joins the protesters at the Florida Capitol on the 25th day of their continuing vigil and unveils a painting and mural in honor of Trayvon Martin.

Miami-based artist Huong unveiled a painting Friday called "We Are All Trayvon Martin" in the Capitol rotunda.

It graphically depicts a George Zimmerman-like image firing a handgun at a blood-soaked hoodie with a mirror over the person's face.

Jesse Paz, who helped with the project, says that image offers a lesson to everyone.

"What happened could have been any of us. So this isn't just an African American issue. It's also a Latino issue, an Asian issue, a white American issue. It's an everybody issue."

I've been reading some lefties think Walker is the prelude to the next Holocaust.

It's a culture of victimization. The president speaking after the Martin verdict and implying that he hasn't had a fair shake in life because of his skin color, and Oprah added her own touch recently. Clearly two people who have been unable to achieve any success in life because of their race.

Just imagine what Obama could have done if he had been full white instead of half white. I'll bet he could be World President by now.

It almost looks like Zimmerman is shooting MLK too and that doesn't seem right to me. Heck, maybe it's supposed to.

But it rubs the wrong way. Just not fair to the memory and spirit of MLK. Maybe the artist should retouch this masterpiece with James Earl Ray in the background.

You really think he'd beat out Nixon's head for the job?

FTFY

Think he would have become President if he were an all white member of the Choom Gang? AAMOF, an all white Obama never could have gotten into the Punahou School.

Maybe he should just toss a gallon of gasoline on it and throw a lit match at it. That would be the proper way to fix it.

Cransey you are just mad because you don't "get" this artistic expression. Your white male heteronormative privilege blinds you from the truth of this painting.
