The tragic murder of Trayvon Martin is a story that isn't going to be fading out of the spotlight for a long time. People all over the nation have come forward to show their support for his tragic death, and Irish singer Sinead O'Connor recently voiced her support for Trayvon Martin and his distraught family.
She spoke about how much the world does love and support its black population, and she urged musicians to start sending out influential messages in their lyrics rather than rap or sing about violence. She stressed that African American youth growing up today are subjected to listening to violent and negative lyrics, rather than songs meant to spread positivity.
She also strongly urged musicians all over the world to respectfully demand the arrest of George Zimmerman, Trayvon's murderer, for his actions are the exact opposite of what America stands for.
"Forget bling. Forget "Get Rich Or Die Trying". That is an evil message. Evil my dears is only life backwards. Turn it the right way up. With music. The messages American black youth are being given through music are not about the spiritual and therefore strong and conquering but PEACEFUL making of YOUR country into the wonderful place it secretly is and can be.. BECAUSE OF YOU, and BY YOU!! You know not how you are adored, appreciated, valued, loved, cried for,smiled for, prayed for, all over the world. You know not how much inspiration and uplift-ment of heart you give to millions just by your presence on earth.
Musicians all over the world should now gently demand this child's killer be arrested immediately and the family of Treyvon Martin be immediately apologized to upon bended knee. Frankly. I myself would like an apology! America is a country I love and adore. what this man has done is un-American in the most horrific extreme. Him not being arrested is extremely embarrassing and does absolutely NOT paint the true picture of a country and a people who for the 90% majority are the kindest, most loving, intelligent, and wonderful people you could know."
