Look, we don't want to argue that capitalism has hurt the moral fabric of America, but what else could we possibly conclude after learning how local businessman Lawrence Sekara is capitalizing off the Trayvon Martin tragedy?
That's right, the 49-year-old San Francisco businessman submitted an online application to trademark the phrase “I Believe You Zimmerman,” according to the smokinggun.com. According to United States Patent and Trademark Office records, Sekara paid $1,100 to apply for the mark.
He plans on putting “I Believe You Zimmerman” on everything obnoxiously American: beer mugs, bumper stickers, leggings, footwear, “button-front aloha
shirts,” and other apparel.
