Whether or not Zimmerman is a racist individual, the ideas that our society gave him about what constitutes as suspicious and criminal are racist. This is also not an isolated incident. This case has brought a lot of people to the streets not because of any false assumptions about race but because this kind of stereotyping and racial profiling is so pertinent in so many peoples everyday lives. More and more cases are coming out about cops shooting and killing innocent young black men, a large majority of the prison population is people of color who are discriminately profiled and stoped and frisked not because they actually committed a crime. We also witness the State sanctioned killing of Troy Davis and many other innocent black men on death row. We live in the era of the New Jim Crow and anyone who doesn't want to admit that is gravely delusional or racist themselves.

That last comment was written while at work with people over my shoulder. Not the most elegant written comment. . . . but just to say, this shouldn't even be a debate.
