Prince Shows Support for the Trayvon Martin Protest

In a photo that seems to originate from political comedian, John Stewart, music legend Prince is seen court-side at a basketball game (like the Lakers?) donning a black hoodie with large scripted letters in red. The caption simply read “Suspicious?” Brilliant!

We are proud to know the “Purple Yoda” supports this very important effort. We would love to see more of this. Given his previous protest songs, can we expect a tune sometime soon?

Here are a few of our favorite Prince “issue” cuts:
Ronnie Talk to Russia (about Nuclear Arms Race)

Sign of the Times (general concern about everything)

Free (about…well, being free)
