Update 7/15/13:  Early media reports credited Lance Gross as the author of the letter; however, Gross is not the author of the letter. Gross, like many people who read it, simply shared it on his platform. The actual author of the letter is an African-American man named Alex Fraser.

Black Hollywood actor and eye candy Lance Gross inked an open letter to George Zimmerman in the wake of the “Not guilty” verdict announced Saturday.

Gross, in a very short but thorough letter, explains that because of Zimmerman’s choice to shoot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, he will “inherit” all of the struggles every male of Trayvon’s color has to go through.

People will cross the street when they see you coming. They will call you hurtful names. It will drive you so insane some days, that you’ll want to scream at the top of your lungs,” Gross writes in the letter screen shotted from “Notes” and posted on his instagram.

Gross then signs the letter with the statement “Sincerely, A black male who could’ve been Trayvon Martin”.

    I was filled with a range of many emotions after the verdict. This letter has certainly given me great satisfaction.

    on the other hand , he'll be rewarded as was Don Imus, James (Jim Crow) Crowley; and racist cops all over this country who shoot unarmed black males in the back and claim self defense. These type of acts have always sprouted mass support , including startup money from donations. Stay tune! If there's any suffering it will be internal. But in order for that to happen, one must have a conscious. Look for the jurors to profit as well via paid interviews and book sales because they all did the white/right thing.

    I ALMOST WAS A BLACK STATISTIC OF EVIL PEOPLE BUT GOD CHOSE TO USE ME TO TELL THE WORLD THE TRUTH! ALL EVIL DOERS KNOW THAT THEY WOULD RATHER LOVE THAN HATE AND THEY ARE SCARED TO BE FOREAL SO THEY HIDE TRUTHS AND ACT LIKE SOMEONE THEY ARE NOT! LIFE IS MEANT TO BE GOOD SO WHY ARE SOME PEOPLE DOING SO BAD? ITS TIME IS COMING FOR THE TRUTH ABOUT HELL AND THE DEVIL AND THE ONES THAT FIND OUT FROM THE DEVIL ARE NOT GOING TO BE HAPPY SO WHY ARE SO MANY TRYING TO BE HAPPY BY CAUSING BAD THINGS? GET READY TO TALK TO YOUR CREATOR GOD OR LIVE WITH THE DEVIL IN MORE PAIN THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE!

    This man’s name is NOT ”Black Man”; his name is Alex Fraser. Seriously, what is with this calling people out by race- the guy has a name! Otherwise, this letter is brilliantly written, and very bitter to swallow. RIP Trayvon.
