Online hoodie photos show anger at Fla. shooting
The famous and unsung stand with Trayvon Martin's family wearing hoodies on Facebook, Twitter
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' The famous and the unsung are appearing on Facebook and Twitter in hooded sweatshirts to show solidarity with the family of a black teenager shot to death by a Hispanic neighborhood watch captain in Florida.

The spontaneous social media effort came a day after a few hundred people joined the Million Hoodie March on Wednesday night to protest the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

They changed their profile pictures and tweeted photos of themselves wearing hoodies, many also posing the question: "Do I look suspicious?" or using the Twitter hashtag "IAmTrayvonMartin" in a show of frustration and outrage.

Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and Marian Wright Edelman, who heads the Children's Defense Fund, joined the fray, which included everyone from grandmothers to a group of law students from Howard University.
