Was This Supposed To Be Funny? Trayon Martin’s Death Made A Joke With Black Face Halloween Costume

TRAYVON-HALLOWEEN 1Public outrage was sparked in America last weekend, when photos showing two men dressed as Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman emerged on social media.

The young man who depicted Trayvon even went as far as painting his face black. Posing beside him, was another guy wearing a tee-shirt with the caption “NEIGHBORHOO WATCH” who pointed his two fingers close to ‘Mr. Blackface’s’ head as if he were holding a gun.

Both men posed with a lady in the middle dressed in Robin Hood costume. The lady posted the photo on her Facbook page. Many people have since condemned the photos, calling it racially offensive and an insult to Trayvon’s family who are still coping with the loss of the late teenage boy.

The identities of the two men and lady have been revealed. According to Gawker:
