Jamie Foxx took home the award for "Best Actor" at last night’s BET Awards for his performance in "Django Unchained." And for the second year in a row, the actor made what the Los Angeles Times called a "silent statement" by eschewing red carpet fashion and instead wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with Trayvon Martin’s image. Last year, when millions of people wore hoodies to stand in solidarity with Trayvon Martin’s family as they sought an indictment of George Zimmerman, Foxx wrote on his blog, "My hoodie will be on forever."
