So what's everyone's thoughts. I mean everybody is calling Zimmerman a racist but is he really? Because he killed a black guy? That makes him racist. This world is full of so many ignorant people its shameful. Black people say this and that about white people and the whites say the same thing. No one can get along. This country is still very segregated with out a doubt! I honestly believe Zimmerman is innocent and has fallen victim to people like Jesse Jackson and all them kind.

It's a fact that Zimmerman was nothing more than a neighborhood watchman. His job was to observe and notify the police of suspicious activity. In this case, there wasn't any. He profiled Trayvon and assumed. Maybe he was having a bad day when he confronted Trayvon, either way he showed poor judgment, which is probably the reason why he didn't get accepted to the police academy after the battery of tests. ItÂ’s unclear who threw the first punch, but I think that most people would get pretty upset if you were being followed for no apparent reason. Seems like to me he initiated the altercation, got his ass whooped, and then shot the kid like a coward. Good thing the police department saw right through him during the interview.

was he not knowingly trespassing upon and inside a gated community? Came through a hole in it's fence? Had not members of that same gated community been victimized prior in the form of B&E home invasion type action six months prior?

why don't white march and act like idiots when a black person kills a white person. statistics show that that 96% of violent crimes committed are blacks killing whites, mostly for no reason but to rob and be thugs. it is time we take a stand and stop this violence. they just want excuses to act like idiots. I don't owe them sh-t. they do not teach their kids how to act. they grow up thinking we owe them something. I think the free housing, food stamps, tenn care and all of the other government assisstance is enough. I know white people that couldn't get any help when they needed it but all black people can. COME ON AMERICA! ITS TIME TO WAKE UP!

Not only are the statistics not true, but you also sound bitter, uneducated and are stereotyping an entire race. Unfortunately the highest percentage of violent crime is black on black crime. I read about unspeakable crimes everyday committed by all races, and not just the ones reported in the news. For every violent crime you can name committed by a black on white, I can counter. It has less to do with race and more with opportunity, sadly. Kids that grow up in poverty or on the lower end of the socioeconomic status (black, white, mexican, etc) are more likely to be delinquent, that's a fact. And as far as welfare is concerned, the South in its entirety lead the nation in welfare programs. It would take every black in the South and millions more to make your statement true. We could have a statistical argument all day about population and percentages but the fact of the matter is that numerically there are more whites on welfare programs than blacks.

I am black and I am here to say George Zimmerman was Hispanic not white. I have no idea how this got turned into a black white thing. Oh wait yes I do. The media. Shameful. And all the black youth bit on it. Come on people wake up and think for your self.
