2. Michael B Jordan
Michael B. Jordan has dedicated his new film Fruitvale Station, based on the life and death of Oscar Grant, to Trayvon Martin.
“My heart hurts so bad right now. I wasn’t going to come after I found out about George Zimmerman getting acquitted,” he said at a Los Angeles screening for the film last night. “That’s why I think this film means so much, because it keeps happening again and again. [We must] learn how to treat each other better and stop judging one another just because we’re different. It’s not just a black and white thing, it’s a people thing.”
On Twitter he added, “I cannot believe this is the America I live in right now.”
