Was his grandmother part black? Maybe that is where he got his rage against blacks? Mean granny whipped him with a belt or a wooden spoon? Is that why they weren't allowed to play with neighborhood kids and kept their black relatives a secret<quoted text>
But a letter from Zimmermanís father, Robert Zimmerman, to the Orlando Sentinel complicates the narrative. Robert Zimmerman writes that his son, George, is ďa Spanish speaking minority.Ē(He also goes on write that his son has black family members. It probably wasn't okay 30 years ago.
Many think George is Puerto Rican, not Jewish. It doesn't matter except it seems the family was trying to be something they were not. There's a difference from being Peruvian and Puerto Rican for those weak on geography. If the Zimmerans have black relatives like the dad claims, where are they? Where are they from? Was his dad permanently disabled from the Vietnam War? There's a story here. i don't think the Senior Center Sillies will figure it out.
