The concept of “Skittles & Iced Tea” originated with the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case.  Especially the title of the song because that’s what Trayvon Martin went to the store to purchase but ended up being murdered.  Though the concept originates with this case there have been hundreds more to follow.  The chorus of the song  starts out “All I wanted was some Skittles and a Iced Tea”, an idea that can be metaphorically used for our simple human rights.

“Skittles & Iced Tea” represents the rights of life.  Freedom, Liberty, Justice, all things that all Americans are constitutionally promised. Not limited to only Americans, the world seeks after the same simple liberties.  To be able to go to the store after the Super Bowl and grab your favorite candy and soft drink and make it back home is not much to ask. “All I wanted was some Skittles and a Iced Tea”.

About The Author

Managing Editor

I've been an enormous Christian music fan since a concert by The World Wide Message Tribe in 2001. I'm passionate about spending my life changing the Christian music stereotype/saving the lives of our youth with it. I love puns, sports, wrestling & logic puzzles. I also have an English accent...because I'm English. My favo(u)rite 10 bands are: TFK, KJ-52, Disciple, Stellar Kart, Manafest, Skillet, Kutless, Family Force 5, Seventh Day Slumber and Ashes Remain.
