Rocker Bruce Springsteen is away from the states, but his mind is still on the events unfolding in his homeland.
According to The Star Ledger, the rocker was playing a concert in Limerick, Ireland when he spotted a sign for his song "American Skin."
"He said, 'Where is that sign?' and grabbed it," the publication reported witnesses as saying. "He then said, 'I want to send this one out as a letter back home. For justice for Trayvon Martin.'"
Springsteen joins a long list of celebrities who have shared their feelings about the recent verdict in the Zimmerman trial.
The song "American Skin" has history, having been written by Springsteen in 1999 after the shooting death of Amadou Diallo by New York City police. The lyrics to the song include the words "You can get killed just for living/In your American skin."
Here is Springsteen's performance in Ireland:
Let bruce break as many guitars as he wants.....it doesn't change the feeling.
you didn't have too go any of this too have your wand taken care of?
that if you caress or suckle my enlongated love wand, and tasty white sauce will spring forth?
When does the boss understand....he is higher level ....
Nice too see the boss sit down for change!
"I want to send this one out as a letter back home. For justice for Trayvon Martin.'"
Does this actually say that Bruce wants Zimmerman dead? Nice job Bruce.
You phony A-h0les....write a song for Reginal Denny you jerks!! Not some punk who thought it would be better to fight than run.

Bruce Springstein is a f'ing creep! He is just like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, Hussein Osama, Bill Maher, etc... All of them are just nothing but low life race baiters!!!

Hey Springsteen how about a nice big cup of STFU WE really dont care to hear a hasbeens biased political views
Learn some fcuking manners you fat w.h.o.r.e.
the only wet back she has is the one from the shower ...wear dansko better for work....now shut up k?
You commented on the wrong thread, idiot. The "wet back" remark was made on the Jamie Foxx/Spiderman article. F-cking idiot.
@T – Thanks for wasting my precious time you w@nker.
Has anyone seen a picture of Trayvon other than the little innocent one that has been shown?
I have, and he is nothing like that photo, he was much bigger and full of tatoos and gold teeth, not the innocent that they want you to believe. People should dig a little deeper and get the truth about this supposedly innocent boy!!!!!
I did a google image search but found nothing except a few where he was blowing smoke.
All that matters is another black person is dead. This was a good start. Mr. Zimmerman is a hero.
Mandy, you shouldn't be so hostile towards our African American brothers. After all a fat trailer tr-ash scu-mbag such as yourself will probably only be able to get laid by them since you are such a big blu-bber b-utt skan-k.
BRUCE! The dude ROCKS, man!
ANY HACKINGS DURING THE NIGHT PLEASE SEND OVER MY EMAIL
OUTSIDE MACHINES FOR PRINTING HACKING HOE STUFF
SOOOO MUCH FUN LAST NIGHT
Juicy, full and tender like bruce.
no wonder why the sack sucks
who cares about his politics i would do him
I bet if Trayvon wandered onto Bruce's palatial estate, he'd feel otherwise.
That is pretty sick of you to say.
You do know that Martin had a right to be exactly where he was. He was a guest in the complex. What is wrong with you?
The Boss...I love his music, but HATE his politics.
hates your politics as well.
I love me some Springsteen!!!! I like the fact that the man is speaking the truth. I love his politics and he is a great American!!!! If sometimes we as American's can just close our eyes and really understand the situation with Trayvon Martin we would see that this was a death that could have been prevented. In addition, George Zimmerman should be sitting in jail.... Let's call it what it is... He shot Trayvon because he profiled him and because he was black. If he was a white male he would have made it back home with his skittles and ice tea!!!
The kid shoplifted the Skittles. End of story.
Actually, he didn't...but even if he had - are you saying he deserved to die for shoplifting? What sort of anti-American police state are you advocating there, comrade?
It's a sad day in America when an innocent kid walks to a convenience store to buy skittles and an ice tea, and tries to return to his destination to watch a game on tv, without being racially profiled and killed. Zimmerman was told by the police to stay in his car, and they were on their way. Had he listened to them, this would be a non issue. Put your self in the kids place. You are walking home, minding your own business, and you have a MAN following you. What would you do? We only have zimmerman's testimony, not trayvon's. Why is this so hard for you racists to understand?
BOOOOO! Trayvon Martin committed assault...no excuse for that. Zimmerman did not have his gun out and did not present a threat. If Martin had gone home instead of attacking George Zimmerman, this would not be the case. So which is worse, getting out of your truck or punching a guy in the face and pinning him down, smashing his head against the concrete? Lucky for George he DID have a gun, because had your precious Trayvon had one, Zimmerman would have been the one dead and it never would have made the news.

Just call me Mr. Skittles...
xjdavid are you kidding me!? So tell me what EVIDENCE did you use besides prejudicism and widely accepted but false assumption that black men are violent...because they are black?
Hmm let's look at the facts, the best one at that:
If Treyvon SMASHED Zimmerman's head into the ground, then where were his MEDICAL REPORTS, MEDICAL BILLS, and CAT SCANS?
Are you really that much of a backwoods hick that you openly accept a picture of razor looking nick marks as evidence that his head was SMASHED into CEMENT?!? Please tell me you arent' that blinded by racism to believe such a pronounce proof of ignornace.
All we have is Zimmerman's side of the story here. No facts, no witnesses, just Zimmerman's side. I wonder how you morons would feel if that was your kid, who was being stalked by a wanna be police officer. He had made up his mind the minute he saw Trayvon that he was a thug and up to no good. Surprise. Just an innocent kid walking down the street talking to his friend on the phone. What exactly was his crime again that Zimmerman had to pursue him? Last time I walked down the street, I'm pretty sure it wasn't a crime. Oh, but I'm white, so I guess that is where the difference lie.
You are all going to have to accept that there is not enough evidence to convict Zimmerman. Simple fact that means all this arguing is just divisive.
They call me Mr. Skittles.
i guess most of the people on here are white.
No, no, careful. Not white. Most people on here are bigots with racism and prejudice on their mind, and malice in the heart. I've noticed that the most people to visit articles reporting on Treyvon Martin are the kinds that sercretly revel in ugly depictions (false or true) of black men. But if George Zimmerman were not half hispanic, but were 100% hispanic, these racists people would be calling him a sp**. Racists trolls visit places were they can stir up tension openly, it FUELS them.
Why doesn't he write a song about the young white couple who were raped, murdered and mutilated and stuffed into containers recently by 4 black skumbags?
Why doesn't ANYBODY say anything about that? Double standard, that's why. Especially the media, they avoid black on white crime like the plague. It's politically incorrect to acknowledge black against white crime.

@BlindCarl and Pliny, hmm I don't know the same way that the media shows favor when reporting cases of missing WHITE children and not missing black, hispanic, asian, or any other ethnic child that is missing. But sure, when you're white AND hold a bigoted, one sided mindset, it's easy to turn a blind eye to that unjusticeness as long as the story suits your agenda and YOUR perspective.
The media can't report on everything so they report on things that they believe will pull at the heart strings of the public. If you are a white, blonde, blue-eyed little girl the media assumes everyone will feel so moved and saddened by the story, but if they report a missing hispanic or black child missing, COMMENT BOARDS WOULD BE FILLED with comments like these from bigoted, prejudice whites.
Bottom line, the media reports for the most part on things that are not of common place. A INNOCENT black boy walking down the street being racially profiled in the day and age of a Black President is A NEWS story.
Shut your hole, pliny-troll.
That post above is not me.
Another reason to despise this dope – nice!
bruce is still a yummy ..would do him...
Ok, more celebrities stirring the pot of racial hatred. This is ridiculous! Why do they use this one incident (which wasn't clearly an injustice if Trayvon was smashing Zimmermans head into the road) as an excuse to gain humanity points? There's no evidence that ZImmermand went out with the intention to kill. Where's the injustice? Should we just jail anyone who defends themself against a physical attack? Why don't we just jail anyone who we suspect of being rac-ist?
This was a tragic accident that left a 17 year old dead and ruined the life of another and his family. I think this whole "JAIL ZIMMERMAN" campaign is totally out of order. Trial by public opinion!
So fake ,such a hypocrites all of them ,they do it for fame and status ,they don't care about not one but themselves ,they should stay away from politics and racial movements inciting more racial tension that is already going on! I wonder why he didn't have on a hooty
with bruce? you betcha...
Bruce is a major D O U C H E '
bruce is lost . he has more money than any working man . he sang about the poor working man at one point early on . he got rich at an early age and lost contact with normal people . the man is on the road most of his life good for him . go to his website. it has a store to buy all of his stuff . money , money , money . he has no clue about the facts of the murder of the trayvon kid . if he did he would write about the injustice thats going on with zimmerman.
You have spoken the truth, couldn't agree with you more. Bruce is adrift in his bubble.
@Bill Fisher, really!? Let's search our hearts and see if our words our being motivated by malice, contempt, hatred and bigotry shall we? I prayed that God would help me see by facts and not race or hatred but let's take a look at the facts shall we, because it is not Bruce Springsteen who doesn't know the facts, it's a simpleton, everyday, backwoods loving citizen like you that is misguided and confused.
1. Zimmerman claims that Treyvon "SMASHED" his head into the ground, BUT WHERE ARE THE MEDICAL RECORDS, MEDICAL BILLS? WHERE ARE THE PICTURES OF THE CAT SCANS? OOh but wait, are we to believe a picture that shows a few razor nick looking scratches on the back of a head is the result of having your head SMASHED into concrete? Backwoods mentality if you can't see something's off here...
2. One thing about the TRUTH is that it NEVER CHANGES. So why has Zimmerman's story changed? First he claimed "Treyvon jumped out of a bush and ambushed him" then he claimed he "I actually don't know where he came from." Why did Zimmerman say "I placed Treyvon's arms out to lay outstretched across the ground" when he was found at the crime scene with his arms curled up UNDERNEATH him?
3. Zimmerman has been charged with domestic violence, HAS A KNOWN police record and history of violence, and has been accused for CHILD molestation. Despite whatever you or anyone else may believe about Zimmerman, one thing is for sure that he has VIOLENT TENDECIES.
DB and BIll, YOU'RE ADIFT in your BUBBLE...prejudicism and bigotry prevail in your world. A sad little bubble you all are living in.
look at him...he's more hunky now then before....he da boss
Bruce Springsteen is my shidoshi.
I sure appreciate the fact that Bruce Springsteen honored Trayvon.....A true artist with true heart.
Bruce is the man!
Bruce is a clueless D O U C H E '
Bruce, Too bad that you didn't treat Clarence Clemons that way...........
He honored Clarence 1 million times and now Clarence's son has take his father's spot....you clearly do not know Clarence's son took over as head sax player for the E. Street Band...that's a huge honor
Anyone who has attended a concert last yr knows what tribute Bruce and the band made for Clarence. The young man on the sax now is NOT Clarence SON! It is his nephew!!! Wish some would get their facts straight now and again!
Bruce is the man...now and forever.
My HERO! Thanks Bruce for honoring Trayvon!!
Strong body odor keeps me safe.
Reblogged this on Bag Lady Boutique.
Not everybody has a billion dollars, and can afford bodyguards, to keep them and their family safe.

Staci ich verstehe es auch nicht. Es ist nicht so schwer ein bisschen Englisch zu lernen oder? Ich habe sogar Deutsch gelernt!

@Jose – Es ist eine turd.
Don't forget this one Dave. Again, a PACK of them. This race must all be cowards.
www do beforeitsnews.com/media/2013/07/brothers-murdered-over-free-zimmerman-sticker-2470688.html
Is this beforeitsnews website like an affiliate of the KKK or what?
No, it's just stories the mainstream liberal media are afraid to report on. Doesn't make it any less true, or valid. Sorry you can't pick and choose the news. Kinda blows your whole peace and love and pro-black agenda out of the water, huh?
Maybe M.A.P. should move to Russia or China where all the news is good?
It's hard to defend those you're such an advocate for when all they ever do is prove you wrong. Must be really frustrating, huh? Constantly being made a fool of, defending criminals, welfare recipients, millions of baby daddys and illegitimate kids, low lifes, murderers, rapists, leaches of society. Yeah, I guess I'd feel the same way you do, like a fool. Come over to the dark side M.A.P., no pun intended.
I thought Pliny was a g ay guy. You should know all about prejudice, right? What a bunch of racists you all are. There are bad people in every race, but it seems that the racists tend to be white. Why is that? Btw, I'm white and treat all people equally.
there are some Christians who are racist too...
The only "people" who are animals, David/Hot Carl, are the ones such as you who are obviously steeped in hatred and racism. You lack compassion, civility and conscience. That makes you both psychopaths, or better yet, monsters, and not human. You may not even qualify for membership in the animal kingdom, either. You're both just plain evil. A horrible, painful death would be too kind for either one of you. A horrible, painful death at the hand of someone of a different race would be poetic justice.
Whatevs, I dont live in the US anyway, but that has nothing to do with it. I totally agree that rac-ism is a two way street and I have been abused many times for being white, so don't tell me to move to Russia you pri*cks. I just think you guys are reacting in an unhelpful way and stirring up the other side into a frenzy. You want a race war or something? Move to Rwanda or Mali, Burma or Tibet. Don't play the poor me role.
f off and die!
