Jay-Z & Beyonce Attend Trayvon Martin Rally In New York
Jay-Z and Beyonce attended a rally in Manhattan, New York, alongside Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton.
"Jay-Z and Beyonce said they didn't want to speak and they didn't come for a photo op," said Sharpton, relayed People.com. "Jay-Z told me, 'I'm a father. BeyoncÃ© is a mother.' We all feel the pain and apprehension — the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn't protect anybody ... We do not come from hate, we come from love of children."
Zimmerman was found not guilty of second degree murder or manslaughter after a nationally-televised trial.
Upon the Zimmerman verdict being announced, emcees such as Immortal Technique, Brother Ali, Young Jeezy, and SpaceGhostPurrp, among many others, quickly reacted to the news.
Jay-Z previously spoke on the matter as well, during his BBC Radio 1 interview with Zane Lowe.
