Lance Gross Posts Letter to George Zimmerman: “Now You Know What it Feels Like to be a Black Man in America”
George Zimmerman being found “not guilty” in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin has brought about many reactions and opinions from both sides, and Hollywood has been just as vocal as everyone else.
Actor Lance Gross weighed in on the jury’s decision Monday, reposting a letter written by a guy named Alex Fraser on his Instagram account that was specifically addressed to the 29-year-old former neighborhood watchman:
Last Saturday evening, a jury of six women found George Zimmerman of not guilty of second-degree murder for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin.
The Sunday after Zimmerman’s acquittal, the Department of Justice released a statement saying that they will determine if federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges against him.
