Beyonce calls for moment of silence for Trayvon

As the news erupted that George Zimmerman had been acquitted in the Trayvon Martin trial Saturday, Beyoncé chose to reflect on the verdict with a moment of silence.

The 31-year-old singer was performing in Nashville, Tennessee, that night as part of her "Mrs. Carter" world tour. According to reports, Beyoncé's show began roughly 30 minutes after the not guilty verdict came in, and she asked the concertgoers to join her in quiet reflection on the life of Trayvon Martin, the African-American teen  Zimmerman said he shot in self-defense in February 2012.

Following the moment of silence, Bey performed "I Will Always Love You," before segueing into her own hit single, "Halo."

The singer is one of several celebrities who've shared their thoughts on the verdict, expressing emotions ranging from anger to sorrow.

Music mogul Russell Simmons tweeted "Prayers for the Martin family. ... Only God knows what was on Zimmerman mind but the gun laws and stand your ground laws must change" while actress Mia Farrow tweeted "I don't understand this. At ALL."

"May God console the Martins at this time; as well as every other family that's gone through this type of injustice," Nicki Minaj tweeted. "And our taxes paid for that trial. We just paid to see a murderer walk free after killing an innocent unarmed little boy. #GodBlessAmerica"

"I feel sick," actress Olivia Wilde said after the verdict news. "This has to be a call to action. We must participate in the political process and demand the justice system we ALL deserve."

Questlove reflected heavily on Twitter Saturday night, saying that he wanted "to rant, but its like 1) i'm preaching to choir 2) this is about trayvon's parents not my anger 3) wont we just forget on sunday morn? i need healing. i wanna be responsible & a model example but there's this voice in my head laughing like "pssh told you that you aint s***. ... psssh i got nothin to say. im friggin crying. internalizing all this on some cube/dre 'hear's what they think about u' ish."

Many others shared their condolences and sadness over the news:

    So Russell Simmons is the only celeb that's made sense so far – "Only God knows what was on Zimmerman mind but the gun laws and stand your ground laws must change" . at least SOME people understand the case is a bit more complicated than white = bad, black = good.

    I'm sorry SHIZ but you're a hypocryte. Just reread what you wrote above:

    "Look, it's not about race, its about the fact it was wrong for George to follow a kid with a gun and end up shooting him. If tre was white and had a little money we wouldn't be having this conversation."

    You say it's not about race then you go onto say it is all about race. So is this all about race? Do you think Mr Zimmerman saw a black kid and immediately just thought "im gonna shoot him"? Fine if that's what you THINK, but there's no evidence to PROVE that so all this hissy fitting is bringing the black community NOTHING! It's just separating people and putting them in boxes.

    Why do black people keep promoting Treyvon as innocent? That is because they are too blinded by their race card.

    Treyvon bashed George to near death and George managed to shoot him and kill him. Under Florida law this self-defense set him free.

    Now people want "justice" and the expect that George will go to jail for saving his life from someone who tried to beat him to death. Sorry, but I do not support promoting Treyvon as innocent since he is far from it.

Think about it this way – if a black community watch guy was following a young hooded white teen and the teen suddenly sprung out of a bush and started smashing his head into the ashfelt, how would ou feel about that? Im sure you would take the side of the community weatch guy – because of his race, and that's sad.

    How about a moment of silence for the 5,000 black on black homicides that happen in our country EVERY YEAR? It's nothing short of infuriating to see how media bias and our disingenuous political leaders with their inflammatory rhetoric are orchestrating and fueling the "outrage" regarding Trayvon Martin's court decision while totally ignoring the 12 blacks who were killed in Chicago two weekends ago and the thousands of blacks who are killed by other blacks EVERY YEAR. Attention "progressives." If you can't understand the elementary logic that was just articulated, look in the mirror and you will clearly see a person who has abandoned solid reasoning skills, common sense, and personal integrity in the name of "spinning" the facts and the truth to "fit" your distorted political agenda. What a shame.

      I concur that the disparate treatment is infuriating. Alas, the NAACP, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson – racists all – are in the business of perpetuating the "To Kill a Mockingbird" myth of white racism and black victimhood. Yes, I know Zimmerman is hispanic. So they're ginning up business. There's no business in observing the true and obvious black propensity for violence. More infuriating is the racist white house and DoJ Holder using tax dollars to pander to this.

There's simply nothing that indicates Zimmerman was profiling. NO EVIDENCE = NO JAIL TERM. The protesters are angry about other cases and personal feelings about rac-ism in general, but that has nothing to do with the Trayvon case. The hatred on the streets is very telling.

    Zimmerman did not go out "hunting" for anyone. He was on some type of neighborhood watch mission. He reacted in the wrong way but did what he must have thought was right at the time. It is very sad that a young man lost his life but all of this hatred toward one man should be directed to the real murderers out there. We all have our opinions, and that is what they are...opinions. The jury could not convict Zimmerman based on the evidence and the way the law reads. People need to get a grip and stop reacting so negatively. Don't we all just want Peace????

      The real enemy is the "stand your ground" law. Zimmerman is dumb for following him and eeven dumber for shooting, but he is covered under the stand your ground law. That is what people should be rallying for – not to jail Zimmerman. If the stand your ground law is changed then maybe that will stop this from happening again. Otherwise it's just one dude more in jail.

      Ok, well obviously you've made up your mind on the issue and can't be swayed. I think that the law needs to be changed so shooting unarmed people cannot be considered self defense. But I still fail to see the racial inequality in this law which you have refered to. There is no mention of black or white in the stand your ground law. And Zimmerman only mentioned the kid "might bwe black" after he was asked by the 911 operator. I agree that african americans are often unfairly targeted by police and others, however that can't be proven in this case so the argument doesn't stick. And this is a national issue now!

    WHY can't people see it as self defense.. It could have well been and I believe it was, actually...Just because he was only 17 and had a bag of skittles doesn't make him a angel. There are a lot of kids that have done criminal activities and have caused pain and suffering on the innocent (black or white). So, I guess it would have been okay of Zimmerman was killed by the 17 year old? He would have spent his juvenile years locked up and have gotten out. Kids these days don't take responsibility for anything. Some of them actually do get away with murder. Ignorance is bliss....Zimmerman had the right to defend himself. I feel sorry for both families.. We as a nation of different races need to stop making every legal case about race.. People need to take responsibility for their actions black, white or blue.. Doesn't matter. The race card needs to be dropped. Every time a black person is killed by a white or other race the race card is thron out there. Actually the race card is used for everything, which is ridiculous... Step up and be a person, That is the easy way out.. Like always....

      The problem is not whether Trayvon was an angel or demon. If George Zimmerman had done what the police asked – which was to stay where he was – then a life would not have been lost. Zimmerman is a dangerous cop wannabe.

      Yes sure he shouldn't have followed Trayvon, he shouldn't have pulled the gun – ALL TRUE – BUT, is not following a 911 operators orders against the law? No. Is there evidence to suggest Zimmerman racially profuiled Trayvon? No. Does that mean Zimmerman is definately 100% innocent? NO. Problem here is – NO EVIDENCE! NO EVIDENCE = NO JAIL TIME. You can't lock people away just because you think they might be rac-ist.

    It always amazes me how there is so much hullabaloo that goes on when a black person is killed – it is always because of his race – and always was a terrific kid that didnt do anything wrong – then somewhere down the line we find out that he was part of a gang at one time.

    Why cant they just admit that these kids are not angels, if it was another black person that killed him nothing would said.

      Because if a 17 year old white kid was shot by a older black man he would be in prison. You act as if we shouldn't have the same rights to walk the street safely as you.

      I understand your anger SHIZ, but that's not a valid argument! If a Black man shot and killed a young white guy, and then it was proven that the white guy was beating the black guys head into the pavement when he was shot, he probably would not serve jail time (the blacvk guy). You can't jail someone on the argument that maybe if it was racially reversed the outcome would be different, you dont know that as a fact.

      SHIZ needs to just STFU, he probably thought Zimmerman was guilty the second he knew that TM was a black kid. It's funny how he says it's plain and simple...LOL....SHIZ probably didn't even finish school.

    I just want to know how many people actually watched the entire court proceedings that have such strong opinions one way or the other. I find it fascinating that so many people have such strong opinions, celebrities included, when I doubt most have time to fairly access the case with true facts.

    AMERICA FAILED? Yes, If the T. Martin's case was an isolated one, no one would have wasted their single tear, but America's jails are filled with millions of Martins, and thousand of Martins have been mercilessly killed with minor fault or no fault. If Obama and so called other white and non-white Organizations, who are shedding their crocodile tears for the last 2 days on this event, really would like to correct the failure of our Court system; they should force the Congress and Senate to form a high level civil rights Commission to inquire the defects of the Court system including unlawful and racial arrest, killings and punishing of black and Latino youths, and stop filling our jails with these unfortunate human beings.

    • Freedom!

      I agree that all black criminals should be released. They were born with an eighty IQ, raised on we1fare fatherless, dropped out of high school because the curricula is just so hard, and then have poor employment prospects. How else can they make a living besides crime? It's been 150 years since the emancipation proclamation, so obviously this freedom thing isn't helping much. Worrying about police is hard enough without worrying about armed citizens, too!

    Did Beyonce and any other "Celebrity" have a moment of silence for all the other black victims that died last year, in Chicago alone, there were over 400 black males killed, most by other black males, why is it such a big deal all of a sudden when someone who is Hispanic kills a black male, not to mention if he had actually been white. I guess Beyonce just thinks its okay for Black on Black crime to continue unabated. Perhaps if families took care of their children and taught them right from wrong, most of the problems existing today would be reduced. Don't have kids you can't raise properly, and that should be practiced by males and females. If you don't know yet, raising kids right is hard work and a lot of people shouldn't be engaged in doing so. Think before you act........................

      Agree. Im anti ra-cism, but this is not ra-cial, even if a lot of people want it to be. I dont think Trayvon was shot because he's black. He attacked the guy and beat his face in! Sure he shouldnt have shot – but he did. Murder? NO. Self defense? We'll never know exactly how it went down so can't be proven either way. Rac-ist attack? Nothing indicates it was. So why everyone on the street screaming? I have no idea.

      I agree that Beyonce is a rashist, and not alone. Obama interjecting, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon" and then the Black Panthers getting the NAACP to get Holder to send a federal DoJ "communicatons element" to have protests to make the State of Florida arrest somebody? What is that? Your tax dollars supporting rashism. Beware: It could happen to you. A high school dropout drug addict starts beating you so you defend yourself... Here comes rashist Beyonce.

    Hmmm, I don't know about this case. It's very sad that Trayvon died, but I don't think Trayvon was the innocent hero he's been made out to be by the media and his campaigners. I don't think Zimmerman has been proven to be a ra-cist either, just a wannabe cop. People are blowing this case into a racial thing when I really doubt that the death of Trayvon had anything to do with his ra-ce and more to do with both men's acitons on that night. I like Obama normally but he shoulda stayed out of this one.
