Sports figures, and especially the Miami Heat, have shown their support for Trayvon Martin and his family since the teen was killed last February. Dwyane Wade is continuing that effort. Wade posed with his sons for the cover of Ebony magazine’s September issue, with all three Wades wearing hooded sweatshirts. The hoodies are a nod to what Martin was wearing the night he was killed, a sign of support that the Heat and many others gave soon after Martin’s death last year. Wade has spoken out before about the divisive case. Last month, George Zimmerman was acquitted of murder charges in Martin’s death, a verdict that only complicated the racially charged situation. In its September issue, Ebony interviews Martin’s parents and also has an article with Wade and two other famous men featured on covers with their sons — Spike Lee and Boris Kodjoe — in which they talk about how they discuss racism with their sons, according to the Huffington Post. Check out Wade’s cover in the photo below. Photo via Twitter/ballislife Filed under: Headlines, Miami Heat, NBA, NESN Staff
