Checking up on Twitter, Facebook and other popular social media first thing in the morning is something that is routine now for many people throughout the modern world.
If you are following/friends with the right amount of people, the George Zimmerman trial is probably up and down your timeline with news updates on the man charged with second degree murder for killing Trayvon Martin.
While prosecutors are making their final preparations for their closing statement some people are observing what impact this will have on race relations in America.
Russell Simmons said, whether guilty verdict or acquittal, people will never stop fighting for justice for Trayvon.
“Whatever decision they make, is a decision that we must live with, whether we like it or not,” said Simmons. “Whether George Zimmerman is found innocent or guilty by the jury, I am firm believer that all of us live by karmic law, and he will ultimately be punished for the death of Trayvon, no matter what.”
“However, if he walks free out of that courtroom, I understand that some people will be very sad, but we must remember the mission we are on. As I have heard Trayvon’s parents say time and time again, they are not only fighting for justice for their son, they are fighting for all of us, especially those parents who have to live through the misery of burying their child and the sadness that comes after.”
