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."

These people are so ignorant. Zimmerman didn't use the Stand Your Ground law AT ALL. His defense was "Self Defense". So basically this pack of protesting a$$hats are protesting something that didn't even happen.

I was watching an 'older' movie today, 'A Time to Kill'. The end of the trial in the movie got me thinking.
What if we changed one thing with the Zimmerman/Martin case. What if the case was identical in every aspect except the ethnicity of the two men were swapped. What if Zimmerman was a black man on trial for killing a 'white' teenage boy (who is actually Latino).
Would this have even been national news? What if the media showed pictures of the 'white' teenage boy when he was 10 yrs old instead of an over 6ft tall football player? Would that garner more sympathy for him?
Would there be protests by whites and latinos all over the US because of the black mans aquittal?
What if George W Bush got up in front of America and said "that could have been me 35 yrs ago". Would that statement be considered an outrage because he is white?
Would a white President have ever even said that or gotten politically involved in a criminal trial like this?
Would we see pictures of Clint Eastwood and Ted Nuggent standing with the parents of the 'white' teenager?
Would the media dare call the black man anything other than an African American as opposed to calling the latino man 'white latino' because he was adopted/raised by a white family?
My question then would be.. why?

stfu please     

Get over the race card pulling bs. White trash always want to pretend that race issues are non existent. Interesting...why are u ppl soo damn mad? Why? Will some white trash please answer that question I'd appreciate it. This case has nothing to do with any of your "rights" so let it go. Are you being targeted on a constant basis? No! Do you live in the neighborhood where black on black crimes are committed? No, so stop speaking on bs that doesnt relate to you. Unbelievable how W.T always find a way to make EVERYTHING a about them. Stop pulling your race card Lmao

Stay in your lane. You entertain. You are a glorified show girl. If you want to do this country a favor, stop thinking and sing. Your opinion is no more then the rest of ours. What if it was your child out on neiborhood watch.

I'm white and I absolutely don't agree with the outcome of this trial. What a travesty. A child is cut down walking in his neighborhood and his killer walks Scott free. The only people happy with the outcome are ignorant gun toting good old boy dipshi#s. The only good thing is that they're a dying breed. RIP Trayvon. GZ is a murderer and will always be.

@Anonymous, give it a rest already. Nobody wants to hear your propaganda or your defense of that thug trayvon. Truth hurts, but trayvon caused his own death and both his parents are exploiting their son's death for their own financial gain. Racist Trayvon, his parents, you and their racist supporters are dead wrong about this. Justice was served, now shut up and accept it.
