Former U.N. Ambassador: Trayvon Martin 'Martyr'

Former U.N. Ambassador: Trayvon Martin 'Martyr'

Former U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young: “No, Trayvon is a martyr. We’ve had a string of martyrs from the time of Emmett Till. Every generation has its string of martyrs and they’re going to continue. And we celebrate them and we lift them up to know that they’re not lost. But I can never forget that three weeks after this magnificent speech four little girls were bombed in their Sunday school class and two kids, who nobody ever knew about, were slaughtered riding bicycles for nothing. The world will never be perfect, but we can never accept this kind of suffering, injustice. And, for me, Zimmerman is just as much a tragedy as Trayvon. His life is ruined over a love of guns and a false sense of what manhood is.”
