There are a lot of people posting photos of themselves wearing hoodies on their Facebook pages this week in support of Trayvon Martin. And that extends beyond just regular people. Earlier today, Dwyane Wade put up a photo of himself rocking a hoody and later commented on how the Trayvon Martin case has affected him personally.
"I'm a father," he said. "It's support of the tragic thing that has taken place. No matter what color, race, we're all fathers...When you think about what that family's going through, it hits you hard and it hurts your heart to think about it. Just anything you can do, obviously we can't bring him back, but anything you can do to get behind and support is what we're doing...It's a picture that I've taken before. I thought it was a great opportunity to use it."
Wade's teammate LeBron James also got with the program by posting a photo on Twitter of the entire Heat team wearing hoodies and bowing their heads.
"#WeAreTrayvon Martin," he wrote. "#Hoodies #Stereotyped #WeWantJustice"
It's good to see the guys coming together to show their support. And now that D-Wade and Bron-Bron have done it, we hope other high-profile athletes will stand up and show their support, too.
