Tulsa Hoodie March

Posted: Updated:

As George Zimmerman walked out of the courthouse, his verdict ushered in a question of fallout.

"What actually can be a fallout? What actually can you do?," asked Diego Spratley.

"Injustice anywhere, should affect all of us everywhere," said James Johnson.

"We need to have some way to vent," said Paul Tay.

Enter the Tulsa Hoodie March, open to anyone who wants to go to the city council this Thursday, and ask for a resolution.

"Call on the Department of Justice and Attorney General Eric Holder to press federal civil rights violation charges against George Zimmerman," said Tay.

 "It takes people to stand up and say hey, this is wrong," said Spratley.

Diego Spratley doesn't own a hoodie, but he'll buying one for the event. What did the verdict mean to him?

"You want my honest opinion? It says that people, you can kill a young black kid any time you want and get away with it. All you gotta do is say you did it in self defense," he said.

"What happened in Florida, could very easily happen right here in Tulsa, Oklahoma," said Johnson.

James Johnson will be attending the march as well.

"Trayvon Martin could have very well been my son, I have a 12 year-old son. Trayvon Martin could have very well been me," said Johnson.

What to expect if you want to attend?

"Wear a hoodie, no shouting, no signs, just be silent," said Tay.

A demonstration of unity following a case that spawned divisiveness.

"It goes to saying that if you mind your own business and leave people alone, let their life go on about how it is, we'll all be ok. Don't judge me because I look a certain way," said Spratley.
