It’s a huge political blunder for the left to push the envelope on this issue.
George Zimmerman’s mother is Hispanic. George looks as Mexican as Pancho Villa. Hispanics will identify with him, they will empathize with him. Latinos vote.
By fanning the flames in order to gain favor with blacks, an already wholely-owned voting bloc for Obama, they run the risk of alienating Latinos in a big way. There is zero gain for sure, and the possibility of a huge backfire.
Blacks and latinos have never had a natural affinity for each other, they have been actually quite resistant to any kind of unity.
As more and more photos of George Zimmerman surface, latinos will begin to think of him as one of their own, and they will take offense at what is happening to him.
You are missing the Axelrod/Holder strategy at work. This not about firing up the blaqck base, it is about setting fires. The little barry bastard administration cannot survive a fair and honest exposure of his regime, so the use of Kenayan/Odinga style violence is meant to suppress the voter opposition turnout in November. The thug administration is counting on fear to squelch barry’s opposition. It has worked thus far with the feckless pubby congress, so these thugs from chicago figure it will work on the voters. BLOAT, we may not have elections in November.
