Post-racial America: Trayvon Martin Halloween costume draws backlash
Sunday, October 27, 2013
By now you have likely seen this incredibly racist photo that makes a mockery of the fatal shooting of Miami Gardens teen, Trayvon Martin in Sanford, FL in February 2012. William Filene, dressed as Martin, is in blackface makeup similar to that of vaudeville minstrel shows and wears a hoodie with bullet holes and fake blood. Greg Cimeno is wearing a t-shirt with "Neighborhood Watch" lettering and pretends to shoot Filene in the head.
Caitlin Cimeno posted the picture on her Facebook profile which has now been set to 'Friends Only'. She also scrubbed her Twitter and Instagram timelines but not before some folks were able to get screenshots. We really shouldn't be surprised that someone somewhere in these United States would have no regard for the sensitivity of Martin's death. Just be mindful that there are others who support this trio's actions.
God Bless America.

I found Greg Cimeno on FB and told him instant karma may get him, or not...but it will get him.
