In December, 2010 there was another “racial incident” in Sanford, Florida. An African-American homeless man named Sherman Ware was attacked without provocation by Justin Collison, the drunken son of a white Sanford police lieutenant... and it was all caught on video.
Sherman Ware went to the hospital with a concussion and a broken nose, but the Sanford Police initially swept it under the rug, and the NAACP wasn't interested. But a young couple were outraged, and started a “Justice for Sherman Ware” campaign. Justin Collison was eventually convicted of misdemeanor battery, and paid Sherman Ware's hospital bill. The Sanford Police Chief resigned.
And who was that young couple, crusading for justice for the African-American victim? It was none other than George & Shellie Zimmerman.
I'll bet you didn't know that, did you?
Zimmerman is a serial do-gooder. In addition to being a neighborhood watch volunteer, he was also a volunteer mentor/tutor of African-American children.
I'll bet you didn't know that, either, did you?
The reason you don't know such things is that NBC, CNN, etc. were too busy lying about Zimmerman, doctoring the recording & transcript of his call to the police, smearing him as a racist, and inflaming racial tensions.
Martin was in the neighborhood because he was staying with his father at his father's girlfriend's house, 240 miles from his Miami home, while serving a ten-day suspension from high school (his third suspension of the year), after being caught by school officials with stolen jewelry and traces of drugs. Zimmerman was doing what Neighborhood Watch volunteers do: watching a stranger in the neighborhood who was behaving oddly (until he disappeared from view), and reporting it to the police.
Martin (5'11" or 6'0") apparently didn't like the way that “creepy-ass cracker” had been looking at him a few minutes earlier, so he surprised Zimmerman (5'7"), threatened his life, decked him, broke his nose, and repeatedly smashed his head against a sidewalk, as Zimmerman yelled for help. No one came to Zimmerman's aid, so he finally drew his concealed handgun, and shot his assailant once in the chest.
No one who knows Zimmerman thinks he's a racist. He's the “good kind of color blind.” When he was in high school, his prom date was an African-American girl. When he started a small business, his business partner was an African-American friend. But now he and his family are in hiding, in fear of their lives.
Unsurprisingly, Trayvon Martin was the product of a broken home. The real cause of this tragedy is Trayvon Martin's lack of a Christian upbringing, lack of an intact family, lack of responsible parents, and lack of a Christian education.
