Jasse Jackson calls Trayvon Martin a martyr, calls for war on whitey

(USA Today) Jesse Jackson told people at a church in Eatonville, Fla., on Sunday that slain teen Trayvon Martin is a "martyr," the Orlando Sentinel reports. [...]

"How do we go from a moment to a movement that creates fundamental change?" Jackson asked the crowd. "If it's a moment, we go home. If it's a movement, we go to war. Movements are made of serious substance. ... There is power in the blood of the innocent."
