Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, the parents of slain teenager Trayvon Martin, joined the “Today Show” to share their reaction to the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.

During the interview, host Matt Lauer asked the couple if they believed that race had anything to do with the trial.

“Obviously, any time you have a person that makes an assumption that a person is up to no good, there’s some type of profiling there,” Martin’s father said. “Was he racially profiled? I think that, if Trayvon had been white, this wouldn’t have never happened so, obviously, race has played some type of role.”
