    Yes, Zimmerman was racist in his profiling of Martin.  Is Zimmerman racist in all his personal dealings.  Hell if I know.  I only know that of all the 911 calls he made there were all about an AA looking suspicious.  There was even a call on a 7 year old AA kid.  All the AA kids in that community were afraid of Zimmerman.  No, Zimmerman would not have stalked a white teenager in a hoodie.  He had it in his head that young black men were hoodlums are would be hoodlums.  We know this by the 911 calls he made and by his comments he made about those people always get away with it.

      If this is true, why didn't the prosecution have a couple as witnesses against GZ? Two or three young AA guys who GZ called the cops on and were discovered to be minding their own business would surely have been evidence of "malicious intent", wasn't it called? Might at least have given the jurors a contrast to the sweet man looking out for the folks in the neighborhood, who just got in over his head, bless his heart.

    •  that is false (0+ / 0-)

      There are multiple calls about "whites", and one about two "Hispanics" and a white.  It appears in fact that Zimmerman regarded "suspicious behavior" as suspicious regardless of race.
