The Unification of CulturesJune 4, 2012 / by Jason Tsai / Categories :
Our good friends at the Cotchery Foundation, Jerricho Cotchery (WR for the Pittsburgh Steelers) and his wife Mercedes, recently reached out to us to collaborate on a little project they felt was very much needed in today’s society. With the events that took place in Florida this past February involving Trayvon Martin, Jerricho and Mercedes saw this as a situation that would only increase the gap between many of the different races and cultures in our country. What the Cotchery Foundation wanted people to focus on, was not that it was a black & white issue – but an event that should draw us ALL closer together.
As the details of this case unfold, this video serves as a reminder to view the situation from the other side – from the shoes of Trayvon himself.
