From the Chicago Sun-Times (http://rainbowpush.org/commentaries/single/investigate_the_racial_context_behind_martins_deat h):

If Trayvon Martin were not a young black male, he would be alive today. Despite the verdict, it’s clear that George Zimmerman would never have confronted a young white man wearing a hoodie. He would, at the very least, have listened to the cops and stayed back. Trayvon Martin is dead because Zimmerman believed that “these guys always get away” and chose not to wait for the police.

Trayvon Martin’s death shatters the convenient myths that blind us to reality. That reality, as the Chicago Sun-Times editorial board wrote, is that “black men carry a special burden from the day they are born.”


We need a national investigation of the racial context that led to Trayvon Martin’s slaying. Congress must act. And it’s time to call on the United Nations Human Rights Commission for an in-depth investigation of whether the U.S. is upholding its obligations under international human rights laws and treaties. Trayvon Martin’s death demands much more than a jury’s verdict on George Zimmerman. It calls for us to hear the evidence and render a verdict on the racial reality that never had its day in court at the trial

The UN can't change what evidence was available to the jurors.

Its no longer about that.

He wants Zimmerman tried on INTERNATIONAL CIVIL RIGHTS CRIMES, same as you would say Adolf Hitler, or other world civil right criminals.

JJ is kinda realizing there is no chance with the DOJ, so now he's reaching and hoping the UN will do what the US courts can't.
