EVERYTHING I AM

 

Trayvon Martin's parents speak for the first time since George Zimmerman was found not guilty.

On NBC's "Today," Fulton said the case is "sending a terrible message to other little black and brown boys -- that you can't walk fast, you can't walk slow. So what do they do? I mean, how do you get home without people knowing or either assuming that you're doing something wrong? Trayvon wasn't doing anything wrong."

Tracy Martin told CBS he wants America to know that Trayvon "was a fun-loving child."

Speaking to ABC's "Good Morning America," Martin added that he and Fulton did not find the verdict fair, "and of course it's devastating."

"My first thought was shock, disgust," said Fulton.

The parents also were asked about remarks by Juror B37, who told CNN she believes Trayvon Martin "played a huge role in his death."

"I don't think she knows Trayvon," Fulton said on CBS. "Trayvon is not a confrontational person."
