Radio Rookies: I Am Trayvon Martin

Friday, March 23, 2012

I was shocked to hear about what happened to Trayvon Martin, but I wasn’t surprised that he was targeted because he was a black kid in a hooded sweatshirt. I wear a hoodie everyday, and I know when I walk through certain neighborhoods and see a cop that I’m probably going to get stopped.
