protestHOUSTON, TX – Taking a cue from Oakland, California, and even last night in Houston, more Bayou City residents want their message to be heard in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict.

hundreds of protestors who feel there’s been a lack of justice for Trayvon Martin gathered in front of the Criminal Courthouse Downtown to show their support for the Martin family. After hours of chanting, they marched right to the lobby of the Federal Courthouse. There’s word this isn’t over yet.

Activist Quanell X promised a march through Houston’s River Oaks neighborhood, as he feels it’s comparable to the Sanford, Florida neighborhood where 17-year-old Martin was fatally shot.

It’s one thing to organize a peaceful march demanding justice for what they view as inequality, but do the people of River Oaks have anything to do with the verdict of the Zimmerman case?

Besides, wasn’t it Zimmerman’s “us against them” mentality that started this whole thing in the first place?

    If forensic evidence proved Trayvon was on top of Zimmerman which was also collaboratef by an eye witness, how is this racial? How could a jury not have found Zimmerman not guilty based on the evidence. Trayvon was a bad , troubled youth who was into fighting and drugs. He attacked Zimmerman not realizing George had a gun. He evidence from the gun residue put Trayvon on top of Zimmerman. Zimmerman injuires correspond also to this fact. Why would someone make something racial out of this. Its a story of a troubled youth gone bad.
