    @Roland, it would be best for race relations in our country if everyone (including outspoken black public figures) to look at the evidence. Why haven’t you discussed these factors that could have influenced George Zimmerman instead of Trayvon’s race?

    When Zimmerman called the police, the 911 recording shows he wasn’t sure
    of the hooded teenager’s race, not until TM walked closer did he identify him as black. GZ describes
    the teen to the police as someone who appears to be checking out
    houses, TM left the store 40 minutes
    before and had only gone 300 yards towards, maybe he was checking out houses? GZ said the teen appeared to be on drugs, blood tests show that he WAS on drugs. The fact that the watchman was suspicious of a
    teen who appeared to be checking out houses in an area that had a peek
    in robberies IS NOT RACIST! Guilty or not, this was NOT racially
    motivated. Apparently, Zimmerman was right to watch Martin, Martin had
    stolen goods in his locker! Did GZ do things wrong, yes, should TM still be alive, of course, but STOP making this about RACE!
