What are your thoughts on the #BLACKOUTIG movement? Will you be taking down your pic on Instagram or “blacking out” your pic on another social media network to show your support? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.



  1. I get it but then I don’t. Blacking out IG pics won’t bring justice for Trayvon. The jurors are sequestered. They’re not doing anything but eating Florida Vs. Zimmerman for bfast, lunch & dinner. They CAN’T get on IG and be influenced by these posts- as well intended as they are. Truth is: 5 white and 1 latina maybe black woman will determine the verdict in this case. Put your IG pics up and if anything, go take some self defense classes with your kids and obtain a license to legally carry a firearm. Them Black Panthers had it right when it came to us protecting/defending our own.
