Marching For Trayvon

On July 13, 2013, while the people who hate me were wrapped up tightly in their beds thinking of new ways to claim that I am an uncle tom and a coon, the world was just getting news about the on going George Zimmerman trial.  The news that the world got was that George Zimmerman was not guilty in the murder of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.  This to the sorry of many black people came right when everyone was assuming there was no way he would get away with cold blooded murder.

So where was Tommy Sotomayor when this news broke?

Well, I was right in the heart of it, right where the rubber meets the road.  I was with the people of south central Los Angeles filming live on Crenshaw BLVD.  You know, where the people who hate me have never been and would never show their face.  You know, right where the people claim that if i ever showed up in any hood in america talking the stuff I talk on my videos, I would be beaten to a pulp!  Well lets look at the two videos of me on the streets talking to passer by’s and see what happened..

Part 2

I enjoyed every moment of talking to people that nite and I will be posting more footage but what really needs to happen is that we turn this outrage into results!  Click here to see more street convos
