FCC students wear hoodies to honor Trayvon Martin

FRESNO, Calif.

Students gathered on campus near the fountain in a show of solidarity. Hoodies have become a symbol of Martin's death because some allege his "hoodie" made him look like a troublemaker.

"Just because you're an African American male in America and you're wearing a hoodie doesn't necessarily mean that you're up to no good," said Kevin Miles. "I believe that anybody of any color can wear a hoodie and should not be discriminated against cause of how they look."

Trayvon Martin's parents believe their unarmed son was being racially profiled when neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, shot and killed the 17-year-old.

So far, Zimmerman has not been arrested.
