Dwayne Wade pays homage to Trayvon Martin on the cover of Ebony Magazine

Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade has been outspoken throughout the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin ordeal. He's now using the platform that sports has given him to make another statement. 

On the cover of the Sept. 2013 issue of Ebony, Wade and his two sons, Zaire and Zion, are seen wearing gray hoodies. Underneath them is text that reads "We are Trayvon."

Wade and his sons were wearing the hoodies in support of the South Florida teenager who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.

It's not as political as what Muhammad Ali, John Carlos or Tommie Smith did back in the day, but Wade is bringing an awareness to the fact that there are too many young black kids dying over to what amounts to nothing.
