The reality is that there are more serious crimes going on in places like Chicago where innocent children are being shot daily by many of their own race, yet the media and Obama are silent on these issues.
Obama might have offered his views from a "black man's viewpoint', but he offered them as if we live in the 50's, or as if the KKK is running around lynching people. He doesn't know racism, he was raised by white grandparents and went to private schools. He was never like Trayvon Martin. He wasn't raised in the ghetto. The only thing Obama has in common with him is drug use. Obama isn't even fully black, but he and the rest of his supporters don't like to mention his white side. Why doesn't the media call him a white black man?? Actually why does the media continue to bring race into it at all?? The only time they should bring up race is if the suspect is being sought or a person is missing. Other than that it shouldn't matter what race a person is, we can see pictures of them to make that determination ourselves.
The parents and lawyers of Trayvon insisted from the beginning it was never about race, yet now that they lost the case and didn't like the verdict it's all about race. As I said, even after a 16mos federal investigation by a dept of the DOJ, the FBI, no racial animosity was found against Zimmerman. What they found was that he had a black great grandpa, dated a black woman before, tutored black kids in his own home, and stood up for the rights of a homeless black man who he thought was wrongly treated by the same police dept that was coerced into arresting him.
This case isn't about race, it's about unfortunate circumstances and choices that led to one person being shot dead and another person left with no other choice but to use deadly force in self defense. This case isn't any different than that of Christopher Cervini, who is Christopher?

In the end, our justice system worked and the jurors made the right decision. Sadly too many want to make this case about race when it was about self defense. Zimmerman could have been me, or a gay man, but nobody is talking about the fact Trayvon profiled Zimmerman as a 'creepy ass cracker' and potential 'gay rapist'.
