Does this look like a "thug" to you?

In the last few days, right wing media (aka FOX News), and conservative bloggers have stepped up their smear campaign on Trayvon Martin's character. Skipping over pictures from his prom, as well as him in his football uniform, they opt for images of fake gold teeth and flipping someone the bird.

The image on the left is one from his Facebook page. As anybody that has a Facebook account knows, we only post images on the sight that depict ourselves in the light in which we want to be seen.

To me, Trayvon was an average teenager. A pretty good kid, that might have committed a random act of stupidity every now and then, like most teens.

As much as I've seen, from both sides of the argument, I've yet to see anything that tells me that he deserved to die on that February day.
