Beyonce & Jay Z joined civil rights leader Al Sharpton in NYC today alongside Sabrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mom to show support for her son. There was no speech from the couple as they didn’t want to take away from the real cause.
Al Sharpton told the crowd:
Jay Z and Beyoncé said they didn’t want to speak and they didn’t come for a photo op. Beyoncé put a beautiful message up on Instagram. Let me tell you, that before a lot of you were down, Jay Z always supported us. Jay Z told me, ‘I’m a father. Beyoncé is a mother.’ We all feel the pain and apprehension — the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn’t protect anybody. We do not come from hate, we come from love of children. Trayvon Martin had the civil right to go home that day.
