First round for acceptance. ;) Good luck!

I'm here to debate you on the fact that you called him a racist, not the other thing. While it's true that he assaulted Zimmerman, and was a lowlife and a paradisaical scum looking for trouble, there is no evidence to show that he was a racist, just as there is no evidence to prove Zimmerman was a racist. Can you provide proof that Martin said anything racist?

I can indeed. Prosecution witness Rachel Jeantel testified that she was on the phone with Martin just before the incident. She said that Martin told her there was a "creepy a** cracker" following him. This is a racist statement.[1]

I don't know. She can easily be lying about that. Unless we have hard evidence (a confession, a tape) we can't prove that he said anything racist. This is as absurd as saying that Zimmerman said anything racist as well. What a prosecutor says alone won't hold up.

This was not a prosecutor saying this, this was a friend of Trayvon Martin. She had no reason to lie, she was testifying against Zimmerman.

I did my checking and you're right. She was indeed a friend. You won this fair and square. I accept my defeat with dignity. :)
