A Trayvon Martin Peace Talk and Walk had the famous basketball player Kobe Bryant heading it recently. And Mark Cuban apologized to Trayvon’s family for any offensive statements he may have made in the past.

Although it’s been awhile since Trayvon Martin was killed, his memory remains alive in the minds of so many. The kid was a true hero for the black community and a reminder that racism is still thriving in America despite Martin Luther’s dream. 

The seventeen year old youth, whose only crime was that he was wearing a hoodie and was a pedestrian in the dark night, is a fine example of how the law is an ass. 

The fact that the white policeman who shot him in cold blood was acquitted later on and remains at large is a sign of the injustice that prevails in the so-called greatest society on the face of the earth. Via get-togethers, peace gatherings and various causes the memory of Trayvon lives on and will live on forever. 

The Trayvon Martin Peace Talk and Walk was proof if any is needed that the community of Black Americans wants to be left alone to walk the streets without being unnecessarily hounded by the law. And Kobe Bryant and Nipsey Hussle were there to show their support. 

“Trayvon Martin Peace Talk and Walk” was held on Saturday at Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles, with the goal to symbolize “the fact that our youth have a right to walk in peace. They have a right to walk without being followed, pursued, chased or murdered,” Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, told MTV News.

Meanwhile, Mark Cuban has expressed his regret upon the offhand and flippant remarks he made in a radio interview. He had said that if you saw a black guy in a hoodie late at night you would move to the other side of the street. 

And then he mentioned how a white guy with a shaved head and tattoos might make you want to get back on the same side since there was no danger. 

According to TMZ, during an interview in Nashville, Cuban said, "I know I'm prejudiced and I know I'm bigoted in a lot of different ways. If I see a black kid in a hoodie on my side of the street, I'll move to the other side of the street. If I see a white guy with a shaved head and tattoos, I'll move back to the other side of the street. None of us have pure thoughts; we all live in glass houses."

This blatant disrespect towards African Americans was not taken lightly by those affected by the death of Trayvon Martin. However, Cuban is sorry he said those words and has apologized to Trayvon’s family over the lapse in linguistic judgment. 

Cuban said, "In hindsight I should have used different examples. I didn't consider the Trayvon Martin family, and I apologize to them for that. Beyond apologizing to the Martin family, I stand by the words and substance of the interview."

 

Kobe Bryant expressed the fact that since he had a platform in society he wanted to help Trayvon’s parents find a platform to express their grievances.

Kobe said, "Players such as myself and others that have kind of a platform, our responsibility is more than just putting a ball in the basket ... but helping [Trayvon's parents] have a platform."

He also said that his life was not just about throwing a ball through a hoop but supporting just causes everywhere.
