Jamie Foxx and his daughter, Annalise, kept the memory of Trayvon Martin alive this past weekend at a peace walk in Florida. The actor and his daughter joined forces with residents to remember the 17-year-old who was gunned down nearly two years ago while en route to a family friend’s house.

“They say ‘Jamie why you got that Trayvon Martin shirt on? That ain’t in no more,’” said Foxx to media and thousands of other participants at the walk. “I say, ‘Well, Trayvon Martin’s still dead; and his mother still grieves, his father still grieves, his brother is still wondering ‘Where’s my brother at?”

Jamie further explained, “What we are all suppose to do is protect our kids no matter what. We’re in a culture where things are sort of getting out of control… We’re starting to forget that guns actually kill. We’re starting to get desensitised to it. How can we be a society with guns, and responsible with guns? How can we be more responsible?”

Trayvon Martin was murdered on February 26, 2012 when self-proclaimed neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman followed and shot him several times at close range. The teen was the son of Sabrina Fulton and Tracy Martin.

  4. Jamie has been quite vocal on Trayvon’s murder. He must continue to do so because there will be another “Trayvon” murdered at the hands of another racist bastard or a ruthless gang-banger with the same skin color as Trayvon.

    The answers are simply: a) stricter gun laws. It’s too easy to obtain a gun. b) an amendment to the “stand your ground law” is undeniably necessary.

    Good job Jamie.

  5. It’s good to see that he’s still apart of this moment because now we’re dealing with another trail dealing with a young African american young men who got shot. So much respect to Jamie for putting himself out here to keep the word going.
