Trayvon Martin, an African-American teen, was shot to death on February 26, 2012 by neighborhood watch participant George Zimmerman, who is Hispanic. Trayvon was unarmed. Zimmerman says it was self defense and has not been arrested. The shooting and lack of arrest have sparked protests nationwide, and has re-opened the discussion about race and profiling of African American males.
