EBONY’s Trayvon Tribute Covers and #BackwardsBoycotts on Twitter
EBONY Magazine’s September issue has four powerful covers, dedicated to the memory of Trayvon Martin. One cover has Trayvon’s family (mom Sybrina Fulton, dad Tracy Martin and bro Jahvaris). The others have Spike Lee, Boris Kodjoe, Dwyane Wade and their sons rocking hoodies with the words “WE ARE ALL TRAYVON.”
YES WE ARE! I am so here for these covers!
Most people have given EBONY props but you know everyone can’t be happy with everything.
There are white conservatives and Tea Party folks all in @EBONYMag’s mentions talmbout the covers are racist. Racists be so READY to call someone or something else racist though. They’re dusty pots waiting on the sideline waiting for any and all opportunity to call the kettle racist. Chile BYE!
But the absurd and hilarious part is them saying they’re gonna boycott EBONY.
White people talmbout they’re boycotting EBONY is like me saying “I WILL NOT PAY MY COUNTRY CLUB DUES!” That will have as much impact as me saying I’ll never shop at Whole Foods again. No one curr! They can go have ALLL the seats.
And now, Twitter (well, Brokey McPoverty) kicked off the #BackwardsBoycotts hashtag and hilarity is ensuing from it. Below are some of the best.
Oh Twitter… good times.
Again, shoutout to EBONY for these dope covers, though. Win.
