The media created a narrative about Trayvon that he was a small child. But that couldn’t have been farther from the truth. He is quite big.
Here is the footage of Trayvon buying Skittles the night of the incident. He is wearing a hoodie and he is quite tall. This doesn’t match the portrayal of Trayvon as a young small child.
As tempers still flare about the Zimmerman “not guilty” verdict, it seems like the image of a younger Trayvon Martin is ingrained in many people’s minds, and therefore, Zimmerman had to be the aggressor.
Given the portrayal of a younger Trayvon Martin (above) by the media, I was kind of surprised how different he looked the night of the shooting.
