Rapper The Game’s Photo Being Circulated In Trayvon Martin Hoax


Few things in recent memory have captured the nation’s attention like the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin story. In the wake of the verdict, social media sites like Facebook and Twitter have been saturated with pictures, stories, and rants regarding all parties involved.
