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."

When you strike someone, knock them down and continue hitting them or bashing their head on concrete you are asking for big trouble. Notice there is no mention of race in the previous sentence, because at that point race doesn't matter.

People have the basic right to defend themselves.

Had I been Trayvon there is no way in hell that I would have attacked Zimmerman. You attack the wrong guy and yes -- you get dead.

Had I been Trayvon I would have kept walking to a lighted area, called 911 and said a guy is following me, I'm scared etc. I I would have tried to walk back to the store if it was close enough or maybe up to a stranger's door and just start yelling someone is following me I need help, make a big fuss.

I wouldn't have led them to my house unless I knew there were lots of people there to help me like my dad etc.

What do people think Zimmerman should have done? Let Trayvon continue to beat him? Kill him? And if so WHY?

I would just like to ask the black people who are protesting and yelling racism against whites. Please go back and listen to the speech RFK gave after the assassination of MLK. RFK asked for people to come together and not division unlike what Obamas 17 minute speech relayed to this country. Whites had nothing to do with Trayvons death as much as some want it to be racism. All these people want is to divide this country between white and black. Go back and listen to a RFK's speech this is a true leader. Not Obama and all these race baiters.

beyonce and jz are such hypocrites standing there being millionaires saying poor us we are discriminated against. It's stupid and racist and ridiculous. I've had friends of every race and have never seen anything like this it's crazy. go to the ghettos and give them your money if you care so damn much. Poverty drives crime and no one goes to jail for no reason. This is stupid.

Stand your ground law wasn't even used in Zimmermans defense. So even if you were to repeal that law, he still would have been acquitted. #ignorantproblems

Good on them for taking the time to join the protest. The only way these freaking hick botard gun laws will be overturned is if enough people around the country protest, and boycott the states that have them. My wife was scheduled for a modeling gig in Florida in Sept. She told her agent she wouldn't go there, it turned out the other models felt the same way and now the shoot will be done here in California. This is the time for all justice loving people to use their wallets and their voices.
That lying murderous freak zimmerman and his army of non thinking drones have swamped every thread, every article about this case, parroting his bullsh*t story about his head being cracked into concrete 25 times. There are pix of his head after he murdered that kid. There is no way his head was bashed into concrete, he might have grazed it on it, but you do not get 2 little abrasions from your head being repeatedly bashed into concrete. This ******* is so full of ****, I can't for the life of me understand how anyone with a shred of intelligence can believe a word he says. And look at his record: cases of assault and battery, restraining order, accusations of years of molestation from his own cousin, his gazillion calls to 911 to report nothing, he even narked on a neighbor for leaving a garage door open for chrissakes. George Zimmerman is a dangerous, sick, murdering bastard and any civilized society would have locked him up.

Anytime a black person becomes a victim of a crime they feel like they are "targeted" because of their race. Unfortunately, crime happens to all races everyday and this incident is no different. If people would educate themselves about the legal system they might understand that this is not a racial issue.

REGARDLESS OF OUR COMBINED OPINIONS, there are NO winners in this tragic, tragic case. The lives of BOTH families are forever changed with no going back. This is a terrible, terrible burden to carry, forever. God help them, all.

If Black Americans want to talk then get off the Trayvon Martin verdict and lets discuss BLACK CRIME period. You are wanting to cry about one case and ignore the TOTAL problem of Black America's Worship of Gangsters and the Gangster Lifestyle. You want people(including many Blacks) to not Stereotype or Profile black youth then raise your children to be more than THUGS in training. To put MLK Jr.'s name anywhere near these rallies is just disgraceful. Dr. King would be calling out the American Blacks for having a 66.1% national high school graduation rate. If American Blacks really want to talk then get past perceived racism in the Trayvon Martin case and get your youth to DRESS to Impress and for Success instead for DRESSING to Intimidate and Nauseate. Lets discuss ways to get American Black males to care about EDUCATION and its power instead of finding Power through fear and intimidation by acting like a Gang member. To think that hiding behind the Martin case is a way to get race relations moving forward is past ridiculous.

Truth    

""Stand Your Ground" laws ... the law in FL which allowed George Zimmerman to claim self-defense"

That's a LIE. What kind of fools write this crap for TMZ? "Stand Your Ground" had NOTHING to do with GZ's defense and they never even used the term in court.
