The video is above. Bruce Springsteen is among several music artists — including Wyclef Jean and Young Jeezy — who have responded with tributes after the controversial not guilty verdict which saw George Zimmerman acquitted of second degree murder and manslaughter charges in the death of the 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
The legendary rocker wrote ‘American Skin (41 Shots)’ in tribute to Amadou Diallo, the unarmed black man who died when he was shot 41 times by four NYPD police officers. In his concert dedication of the song in Limerick, Ireland, Springsteen said, ‘I want to send this out as a letter back home, for justice for Trayvon Martin.’
