NBA players are now pledging their support for Trayvon Martin. Earlier today, Heat forward LeBron James tweeted a photo of him and his teammates in hoodies with the message ”#WeAreTrayvonMartin.” Martin was killed on February 26th. Palm Beach Post reports:

The public has a harder time accepting his positions at face value, even going as far as to invent motives that he may not have. That’s true even when a situation seems clearcut to most, as the Trayvon Martin tragedy does.
