First of all George Zimmerman was Hispanic so stop making this into a black and white issue. Second stop punishing innocent people for his actions. Most white people don't like him either and we should not suffer for his actions. If your mad at white people or white Hispanics after this than you need to open your eyes and realize that you are playing into this stupid silky racial divide thing. Grow up and move on.
Race is very relevant because many different races see the case differently through their own racial lens. Certain people who have a certain blindness to racism in our society want to reject it on sight as long as it does not affect them. Dont believe me check out this link check out the ones who are perpetuating racism in this scenario, and what their racial background is
A kid assaults a man and gets himself shot- these are the RELEVANT facts of the case. Sure, there are those who desperately WANT to make this a race issue, but the evidence proves it was not. Zimmerman was shown by multiple character witnesses to show no racist tendencies, and he shot Martin in response to Martin's assault on his person.
The rabblerousing from Sharpton and the like is shameful, but the reasonable folk in this country will see the evidence did not support a conviction.
