It seems that a bunch of people either somehow find it amusing to take pictures of themselves posing as a deceased Trayvon Martin or else they just don’t understand the difference between getting good attention and bad attention for your actions.
As my friend who blogs over at The Noob Yorker rightly points out:

When you mock and belittle the death of Trayvon, you reinforce the racism that underpins our social institutions and in the process produce more events akin those in Florida.

I understand that everyone wants to make the next hot meme and get the internet to pay attention to them for a minute. But, seriously, stop behaving this way. It is awful.

Bolded for emphasis. This is flat out racist and these types of “jokes” have real life consequences that hurt other people and reinforce racist institutions that the vast majority of those pictured will never have to deal with. Don’t do it.

It’s just disgusting. I don’t see how could anyone think of such a thing…
