Some road signs have said some weird, funny and stupid things in the past, but nothing as of late comes even close to the level of disgust as this. A road sign on Interstate-94 near Livernois, Detroit, called recently murdered 17-year-old Trayvon Martin the N-word.
The sign was discovered last weekend and comes just two days after students at Ohio State found graffiti at the Frank W. Hale Jr. Black Cultural Center. The graffiti was a spray-painted message saying "Long Live Zimmerman."
On February 26th, 17-year-old Trayvon was shot and killed by a neighborhood watchman, 28-year-old George Zimmerman. Trayvon was returning from a local 7-Eleven after buying a bag of Skittles and iced tea and heading toward his father's girlfriend's house in their gated community.
The nation has expressed its outrage through various protests over the apparently racially charged shooting.
