When was it ever established that Zimmerman was in fact a racist? I have read many, many articles from one side of the political spectrum to the opposite and one similarity is that there is little evidence that Zimmerman was or is a racist.
His skin is light enough to be racist.

First link says he dialed 911. The second one says 311. So which is it? Someone has a misprint.

First off what organizations or days of celebration do the white people have? There is cinco de mayo for Hispanics. The blacks have the NAACP. But if the white people want an organization it's called racism. I don't understand this.

I never said it was 911, that's the salient point. But, it was 311, the non emergency number.

It's liberal hypocrisy and what I can only describe as the actions of many self loathing whites in the Lame Stream Media[LSM]

Stick around and you'll see that according to many, especially Topix libs, everything is whitey's fault.

Zimmerman had the right to chase anyone down and question them. That is freedom of speech. Martin did not have to respond. Martin could have ran as he was, no doubt faster being an athlete, and he had a head start. That tells me that Martin made the conscious decision to stay and confront Zimmerman physically. Those in fear have a mechanism called fight or flight. Martin apparently was fearful or he wouldn't have ran initially. Why didn't he just run on home? He wanted to start a physical confrontation from a logical perspective. Martin got a physical confrontation.
You are absolutely correct. And we must remember, an arrest and or charges are not a conviction or proof of guilt. We must stay calm and let the system work. I do believe some thought was put into the possibility of retaliation by the black community if at least an arrest wasn't made. However that is a long stretch to a conviction of 2nd degree murder or manslaughter. I wish Mr. Zimmerman well, i do believe he is innocent and is somewhat being railroaded at this point. However he has sought the assistance of a remarkable law firm in Orlando. TaTa for now Lady of Quality

actually what i posted both say 311..........

a minor point at any rate, the most important point is the witness who saw Martin on top assaulting Zimmerman and Zimmermans injuries.

Ok I was just pointing out there were discrepancies in the information provided in the two links. That's all it can be confusing sometimes

Why do they call a 17 year old young woman the same?
