Well, at long last, the Zimmerman trial is set to begin in Florida. You remember? The White guy who killed an innocent Black youth for the crime of being Black?
That’s what the press told you, more or less.
Of course, none of us were there. And, isn’t Justice alleged to be racially blind in this country? That is, unless the press takes the tack that the
assailant victim was subjected to racial profiling.
Now it has come out that the defendant previously fought for racial justice causes.
Hardly a bigot.
And, this gem from Glenn Reynolds:
IF THE PRESS WERE PUSHING A ZIMMERMAN-VICTIMOLOGY STORY, would they be saying more about how a black/Hispanic male is being tried by a jury of (mostly white) women? Zimmerman, remember, is 1/4 black,making him blacker than Homer Plessy.
Regardless of the facts and evidence, it’ll be interesting to see if racial justice for Mr. Zimmerman is served.
If you don’t know Homer Plessy, here’s a link…
