It's been political from the get- go. This has been a lame attempt at rehabilitating the unfortunate image of many young black males in America today. "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon". The media has pushed the image of a younger, more wholesome, clean-cut Trayvon being racially profiled by a *white*, oops, *white Hispanic* vigilante. NBC was caught , red-handed, editing 911 tapes in an attempt to make Zimmerman's motives look racially charged. At the same time,the media only shows us photos of Martin some 4 -5 years younger, less intimidating, no *grill*,no mention of his reputation for fighting or drug use. The facts coming out in the trial are showing why Zimmerman was not charged in the first place. As far as I'm concerned, it's the media that is on trial and I find them guilty of misuse of the facts to promote a political agenda.

Everyone from the Martin family's lawyers, to the professional grievance industry, to characters like the New Black Panther Party was busy whipping up riot conditions and treating Zimmerman as a fugitive from racial justice, which led to filmmaker Spike Lee endangering the lives of an innocent couple that just happened to be named 'Zimmerman.' And there's a good reason the media referred to Zimmerman as 'white' until photos of him finally leaked out, and they had to change it to 'white Hispanic,' a very special demographic of which George Zimmerman seems to remain the only high-profile member."
