Jay Z and Beyonce have made it clear -- they believe justice was NOT served in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin ... they spent Saturday protesting the laws which allowed his killer to walk.

Photos of the superstar couple showed up on Instagram ... of Jay and Bey in NYC, protesting against "Stand Your Ground" laws ... the law in FL which allowed George Zimmerman to claim self-defense in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon.

J & B were seen posing with Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton, and Al Sharpton. Al reportedly told the crowd of protesters the famous couple was there ... but didn't want to speak and didn't come for a photo op.

As TMZ previously reported ... both Beyonce and Jay have taken time out of recent performances to honor Trayvon. And last week, Beyonce tagged a photo on Instagram "JusticeForTrayvon."

I am going to stand my ground too - I will not purchase, acknowledge or support these two racist! They don't live in reality. Zimmerman had a jury of his peers and set free. 24 hr news pumped this issue up and President O flamed it. I pray for the Martin family and my heart goes out to them for their loss but their son is not totally innocent either.

Serious, you must not have a child last responder.. it doesn't matter if he had a peer of juror, it doesn't matter if that 17 year old was trouble, which is just a hear say from neighbor or Zimmerman , he had no right to take a life no matter the consequences he could've done something different instead trying to become a wannabe cop , he was just a simple neighborhood watch which means he gather the people and call 911 that was his , so that bull crap that he look like a Unibomber with his hood per bogus witnesses.. the only one that could take a life is God, he is judge and jury not Zimmerman.. so before any responders out there Raging Bull Zimmerman

Jay Z is there to celebrate racism while texting Obama about how the event is going, and the best part is Jay Z is going to be there every time a black man is killed in this country, not just the events he makes money and publicity from for free.

if these people really cared about black youths, they'd be marching on a daily basis in Chicago where more black youths, more black babies, more black men are murdered by other blacks on a daily basis. They have no reason to march in this case other than Zimmerman is too light skinned for them to consider Hispanic... and white on black racism (even if imagined as in this case) wins elections and makes money. You think Obama and Sharpton want peace and unity between races? Hell no. They don't even want their own race educated and employed so they can be controllable. Think about it, under the first black president... the unemployment and welfare rate among blacks has been the highest ever, and the education/graduation rate - the lowest. This case is proof Obama and Sharpton want to keep the divide strong. Think about it.. Trayvon's friend Precious said that after dropping a racial slur, Trayvon confronted Zimmerman. Not the other way around. Everyone says he was a scared child... how many scared children with a phone and the ability to call 911 and run, drops a racial slur, then CONFRONTS the person they're afraid of? Precious also recently said in an interview she thinks Trayvon took the first swing. At that point... he stops being an innocent victim of racial profiling and became an assailant. As long as Zimmerman didn't touch him first, nothing he was doing was illegal. Not to mention, Zimmerman didn't racially profile him... if you listen to the unedited by NBC tape of the 911 call, Zimmerman can't identify the race... and the police asked him if the person he was following were still there... he went to look to tell 911, so he wasn't "stalking", he was telling the police the info they asked for. So Trayvon by taking the first swing according to his own friend and the state's eye witness, we now know Trayvon was the assailant. By an eye witness account - Trayvon had grounded and pounded Zimmerman, and the injuries he sustained proved this to be accurate. The only injury Trayvon sustained was the gun shot - this shows Trayvon was doing the beating, not getting beaten. And notice, the FBI found no evidence of racism when investigating Zimmerman, but every time Precious opens her mouth... we hear more and more about how Trayvon was ***** this and Cracka that. This case was 100% judged correctly to be a case of self-defense. so exactly why is Obama and Sharpton butting in again? Because Zimmerman is just white enough to make an issue to get blacks and whites to hate each other again, get money and publicity for Sharpton and Jesse Jackson... and help Obama's people win the 2014 elections - which they would lose based on the state of our country had this not come up. And tell me... why can Obama talk about this, but can't give the parents of the Benghazi victims straight answers, or the American people answers about how he dropped the ball when Russia had warned us about the Boston Bombing brother... yet we just let him walk around our country free as a bird.

I hate when people call Trayvon a child. So lets not play words here. Child is a way of drawing more sympathy... making people see him as a little baby face boy playing with action figures and riding ponies. He was a pot smoking, pants on the ground, gold teeth in his mouth, camera bird flipping 17 year old... one year away from the legal adult age of 18.

Jay Z & Beyonce with Al the racist Sharpton? You are known by the company you keep. Zimmerman was found not guilty. Prosecution is done, Persecution is starting. FBI couldn't find ONE incidence of racism on George Zimmerman's part, however, Trayvon? I'm sick of white people being blamed for EVERYTHING.

The ignorance in these comments disgusts me. Some people just don't get it and that is exactly why we need to keep having these rallies. I commend Jay-Z and Beyonce for showing their support.
