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."

Wasn't Trayvon raised for 14 years by his step mother? Now his biological mother is cloaking herself as the grieving parent? Anyone know the whole story?

There are only two people who really know what happened that night and one is dead. I don't think Zimmerman should have been following Travon, but that does not give Travon the right to beat the crap out of him. My opinion is that Zimmerman was following him based on the perception that blacks are prone to crime and violence and that he was somewhere he wasn't supposed to be looking for trouble. Black's should change the way they act and promote themselves if other races opinions of them are going to change.

Jay-Z and Beyonce are just as big of race profiteers as Sharpton and all the rest. Why be one of the pack? Why think and follow their own style and path, If you're not a thug...why you wearing a thugs uniform?

Trayvon Martin was a drug dealing gang member who assaulted a man with a gun - they should give Zimmerman a medal for putting that piece of **** down

Stop with this race crap!! This is not the dream MLK! He did not want EITHER race belittling each other... I'm sick of it.. This is a human issue! People wake up and realize this happens to all races, all ages... If TM was white, and GZ was black, this never would have made the news.. It's double standards.. It's ok for "black" people to call me a cracker, but lord help me if I stand up for myself, I'm the racist... Even if I never utter a racial term (which won't happen EVER) .

Stop making it about race, and start making it about human rights...

I so wish these two zero-talented thugs would STFU!!! They are using this case to bolster themselves, "Look at me!" This nasty talentless chick and her less talented need to disappear. They are part of the damn problem.

Trayvon got his justice. He attacked someone and got shot and killed. THAT IS JUSTICE!! These people are just IDIOTS, every last one of them, because they are acting like spoiled little brat children who didn't get their way. I use to have no prejudices against black people. In fact some of my closest friends throughout my life have been black. Now, today, I am certainly becoming prejudice against them. I am so sick of their behavior, their BS, their attitudes, and their "Im owed something" mentalities.

So "I was Trayvon" Obama and his pals Jay-Z and Al want us to just lay down and take it if someone is beating on us? I'll listen when they fire their bodyguards and move out of their gated communities...
