    But what happened to Trayvon Martin didn't happen because he went to the store for junk food or even because he had on a hoodie. Trayvon Martin was singled out by George Zimmerman because he was black. He could have had on a light color polo shirt ,khakis and been walking home from wherever and would still be thought of as suspicious.

      It was dark. What if the kid hadn't been black?

      Zimmerman wanted to catch a bad guy and be a hero.
