U.S. Could Bring Hate Charge in Fla. Teen Shooting

The Scottsboro Boys\r - Eight Black teenage boys (a ninth boy, only 12, was deemed too young for the electric chair) were sentenced to death for the rape of two white women on a Southern Railroad freight train on March 25, 1931. During the one-day trial in Scottsboro, Alabama, an all-white jury sealed the boys’ fate. Public outcry and demonstrations in Harlem, New York, prompted the Supreme Court to reevaluate the convictions because the defendants lacked adequate defense. Charges were eventually dropped against four of the men. Three were re-sentenced to life in prison; a fourth man, Clarence Norris, was re-sentenced to death. That charge was later reduced to life in prison. In 1976, Alabama Gov. George Wallace, once known for his staunch pro-segregation views, pardoned Norris. The case of the Scottsboro boys remains precedent for controversial, racially-biased convictions and sentencing.\r(Photo: Courtesy of The Library of Congress)

The Miami Heat\r - The man many called selfish after his much hyped televised "decision" to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat last year led a selfless act, encouraging his teammates to pose for this photo, that he later tweeted with the statement, "#WEWANTJUSTICE." James, who is the father of two young boys said, "It was very emotional, an emotional day for all of us. Taking that picture, we're happy that we're able to shed light on the situation that we feel is unjust." And fellow teammate Dwayne Wade, also a father of two boys, shared, "This situation hit home for me because last Christmas, all my oldest son wanted as a gift was hoodies. So when I heard about this a week ago, I thought of my sons. I'm speaking up because I feel it's necessary that we get past the stereotype of young, Black men." A powerful statement from Trayvon Martin's favorite NBA team.\r(Photo: Lebron James via Twitter)
