Apparently three to five guys on Facebook hit a nerve, especially in African-American media, by posting pictures of themselves as if they're a hoodie-clad and Skittles-and-ice-tea-clutching Trayvon Martin after the Miami Gardens 17 year old was shot by George Zimmerman Feb. 26 in Sanford.
There's another photo-shopped image of President Obama holding Skittles and Arizona Ice Tea.
The Grio said it found the Facebook page yesterday with this explanation:
1. get hoodie
2. get skittles
3. get arizona
4. wear hoodie
5. go to florida
6. get shot :) Trayvon Martin was a 17-year-old African American male who was unarmed and got shot by a raciest [sic] mexican american.
In response to this blog, Republican political consultant Rick Willson Tweeted/neologized this word: 'Memerage' n. A portmanteau word combining Internet 'memes' incl Photoshopping and captioning shit to piss people off."
