New Anti-Stand Your Ground PSA Reenacts Trayvon Martin Shooting - The Coalition To Stop Gun Violence want Americans to "stand up" to the "stand your ground" laws. They produced a powerful 90 second public service announcement that uses 911 tapes released during the George Zimmerman trial to re-enact the killing of Trayvon Martin. The PSA uses actors to portray Zimmerman and Trayvon, who is seen in the distance wearing a hoodie. You can hear the 911 operator telling Zimmerman not to pursue Trayvon. The scene cuts to inside the home of a neighbor who called police saying someone is yelling for help, and then a gunshot is heard. It ends with the arrest of Zimmerman near the body of Martin lying in the grass. The video ends with several other "victims" on the ground, wearing hoodies and each has a state next to them to represent all the states that have stand your ground laws. Then the words "Our laws should protect victims, Not create more" are seen.

Macklemore Cover Rolling Stone - In this cover story, Macklemore talks about his rise to fame and he also talks about how his race plays a role in his success. In the article he says, "We made a great album, but I do think we have benefited from being white and the media grabbing on to something. A song like ‘Thrift Shop’ was safe enough for the kids. It was like, ‘This is music that my mom likes and that I can like as a teenager,’ and even though I’m cussing my ass off in the song, the fact that I’m a white guy, parents feel safe. They let their six-year-olds listen to it. I mean it’s just…it’s different. And would that success have been the same if I would have been a black dude? I think the answer is no."
