Beyonce Honors Trayvon Martin With Moment of Silence, "I Will Always Love You"

by at . Comments

In the aftermath of the George Zimmerman verdict that resonated across the U.S., Beyonce honored Trayvon Martin at the Mrs. Carter Show in Nashville.

The 31-year-old singer offered a moment of silence for the slain Florida teen, whose death continues to sadden so many around the nation and world.

She also covered Whitney Houston's legendary "I Will Always Love You."

Martin has become a cause celebre among A-listers since his death 17 months ago, as evidenced by the mostly irate celebrity Twitter reactions to the verdict.

Beyonce did not criticize the jury specifically, however.

By choosing to tenderly and simply honor the teen and his family, she left the legal and political issues this case has raised to be debated another day.

God, these Popsingers and actors sticking there damn noses into politics and national/international affairs need to seriously start educating themselves. Like so many others who now run on the streets acting like animals. I am not the slitest bit racist but people need to get their F..... Heads out of their asses stopping to feel sorry for themselves and their status in life.... YOU got and keep yourselves there. I have so many friends from so many ethnicities who work hard to make something of themselves. And they are successful.

Dear Ian, You would not know that Indians were "heathens" etc. had whiteman not conquered them....white man also practices idolatry of their god. Loyalty to one's own group is "tribalism." Sounds just like your "always bet on white" theme. We all aren't much different. We are all in this together on this teeny tiny remote planet. So, why does there have to be ANY war?

The white man is like cockroaches and rats we will still be here after a nuclear war...always bet on white! Mess with the best die like the rest.The indians were heathens who practiced idolatry and tribalism.Manifest destiny baby,manifest destiny!

My love and caring goes to the parents and all family of Treyvon..Love you. ZIZ am so sorry that justice did not serve us. I hurt bad inside. Joy must remember that the white man invaded the peaceful Indian nation. THE INDIANS are the true Americans and worthy human beings along with Blacks and yellows, red and white. Hah! this USA is not a white nation. The true Americans are the Indians. they were kind to the whilte man in the beginning, then the white man committed horrible crimes against the Indians. I am ashamed of my race for what they have done to Blacks and Indians and Asians.

THE NEGRO PROBLEM IS ONLY SOLUABLE BY REMOVAL ... SAME AS WE HAD TO DO INDIAN REMOVAL .. THIS IS A FOREIGN SPECIES , LOW DOWN ON THE ORDER OF BIOLOGY TREE ... NEGROES ARE A CRIMINAL CULTURE THAT LIVES TO COMMIT CRIME AND EVEN WHEN IT FEIGNS MUSICAL CREATIVITY , IT'S ONLY VULGAR NOISE ACCOMPANYING RANTING ABOUT KILLING COPS AND RAPING WOMAN ... NOW, THEY ARE THREATENING ASSASSINATION OF PEOPLE HERE IN THIS WHITE NATION WIHTOUT ARREST OF THE DEATH-THREATERS ... HALF THESE ANIMALS ARE IN PRISON OR PAROLE !!!!! THE PLAGUE OF CRIME AND BARBARIC SAVAGERY WOULD BE TOLERATED BY NO WHITE NATION ON THIS PLANET . IT IS ONLY BECAUSE OF THE EFFEMERAL ERUPTION OF JEWS GETTING MONEY THROUGH THEIR SCAM PRACTICES AND BRIBING AND ATTACKING PUBLIC OFFICIALS THAT HAS PARALYZED NORMAL WHITE CONTAINMENT OF SEMETIC (JEWS-ARABS-INDIANS-SPICS) AAND NEGRO TRESPASSERS. NOW THEY'RE ARE JUMPING AROUND ABOUT THIS ERADICATION OF A VIOLENT STREET RAT BY A PATROLMAN .. BUT , IT IS JUST ANOTHER FORM OF NEGRO CRIMINAL ANTICS !!!!! IT REQUIRES NO FURTHER PROOF BUT THAT NEGROS HAVE NO CONCEPT OF RIGHT OR WRONG ---- KILL ONE OF THEM AND THE TRIBE GOES ON THE WARPATH - LIKE DISTURBING A RAT'S NEST - NO MATTER WHAT THE FACTS OF A MATTER MAY BE ... TIME TO START USING OUT FEMA CAMPS AS STEP ONE OF A FINAL SOLUTION ... OF COURSE !!!!
