Nejame on new Zimmerman family photo: "He really has significant multiracial, multicultural roots"
CNN ^ | May 10, 2012 | Jason Kurtz

Posted on 05/10/2012 11:53:22 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

This evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Mark Nejame with new details on George Zimmerman, the man charged with killing Trayvon Martin.

Joining Piers Morgan for a live interview, the CNN legal analyst shared an exclusive photograph which suggests Zimmerman has black heritage:

"The man in the middle is apparently George Zimmerman's great-grandfather. The woman above him, is in fact his grandmother who is half black," explained Nejame. "And the little child in the gentleman's lap, is his mother. So we see that he really has signifcant multiracial, multicultural roots."

In a case ripe with racial undertones, Nejame suggests that Thursday's photo may help the Zimmerman camp refute theories that Martin's death was a result of profiling and bigotry:

"Talking to people that know him, I have changed my position," revealed the guest. "People can come up with whatever conclusions they want. But from looking at the facts and the evidence, I don't think there is a racial motive in there."(continued)

How is it that the "high-powered media" is weeks behind us on this case? We knew all about Mr. Zimmerman's black ancestor in April!!

Yeah, but so what?

I don’t care if his mom and dad are both Germans with blond hair and blue eyes for Pete’s sake.

His ancestory is irrelevent and has nothing to do with what happened.

This country is racist to its core apparently.

You’ve got that right, but not in the way the media would have you believe.

He is probably blacker than our supposed “first black president” as well, as many threads here have seemed to show that Dear Leader is much more Arab than black on his father’s side, whereas Mr. Zimmerman is probably 1/4 or 1/8 black.

It has everything to do with what the media has done, what the race baiter industry has done and with his being arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder. None of that would have happened if his true ethnicity had been publicized in the beginning.

The only racist ppl are the media/journalist who jump to conclusions base on race and encouraged racial violence/death to occur all around the country because of their racist reporting

The sad part is that so many people think the skin color of George Zimmerman’s grandparents is relevant to the “criminal” case. Have we forgotten about the facts of the case being relevant? The only thing that matters is whether Zimmerman hunted down a cute little black kid who was carrying Skittles home to his brother or a criminal trained as a football player to hit people hard attacked someone interfering with casing the neighborhood and Zimmerman shot in self-defense to save his own life or avoid serious injury. Where is the evidence regarding the facts? [rhetorical - this is Obama’s America]

Sharpton and Jackson, came in and got this thing rolling.

They have spent years watching black on black crime and killings and said nothing.

Now they have an opportunity to hang what they call a white man. That is what got them involved, not the killing. These two ne’er do wells have never done a day’s work and have never supported anything white in their lives and survive by provoking racial hatred.Trayvon and cases like his keep them relevant.

Sharpton and Jackson have done more to keep blacks on the plantation than any other living person’s up until Obama showed up.

The left certainly is.

Meanwhile my family and I are watching TV while some liberal @ssclown announces that all conservatives hate Latinos.

So my morena wife and kids look at me laughing while I am compelled to announce: "It's true, I hate you all..."

*sigh*

No, I disagree.

Liberals, of which there are a huge number, are racist, and so are black people for that matter.

And I mean highly racist as in obsessed with it to the point that they see nothing else.

But why?

Why does his ethnicity matter at all?

I am german/ english. Do I not have a right to defend myself with with deadly force from a black man trying to kill me?

No matter what his background, if he knew that the recent break-ins in his neighborhood were being committed by young black males, he is a racist.

Being non-racist is about not knowing such things. Not knowing with every fiber of your being.

So in the minds of these racial vetting arbiters, Zimmermans motives AND HIS VERY THOUGHTS werent valid untill they were viewed through the prism of his politically correct racial ancestry and those who have been designated to read his mind?

Which leads me to my next question, does a bigot deserve the right to lawful self defense? Or does his thought crime cause him to forfeit all constitutional liberties as we succumb to the hectoring of the racial industrial complex and the cultural marxist lynch mob?

Nonsense. Obama is half Luo, NOT half Arab. But I agree that Zimmerman is indeed blacker than Liz Warren is Indian.

The whole story is based on liberal racism. If Zimmerman was really white - so what. Does that change the facts of the case?

These people are pure racists and they have klan with a tan blood on their hands in this case and in life in general in our society. They disgust me because they can not see people beyond the stereotypes they push based on skin color. Eeeevil!

Why? I said why. "It has everything to do with what the media has done, what the race baiter industry has done and with his being arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder. None of that would have happened if his true ethnicity had been publicized in the beginning."

Did I say anything about his right to self-defense? No. Are you contending that the media circus, the race baiters and the prosecutor who charged him don't exist? That none of that has any relevance? Somehow the only thing we should concern ourselves with is what happened between Zimmerman and Martin and that all the rest is meaningless?

You can act like none of that has happened if you want to but he wouldn't even have been arrested if not for those things. Those things are the only reason any of us are talking about this case now or even know about it.

My response -but why?- was with regard to your statement “None of that would have happened if his true ethnicity had been publicized in the beginning.”

What that says to me is that the race baiters would have ho-hummed this had they known it was a man of ethnic descent killing another man of ethneic descent in a justifiable homicide situation.

But since they thought he was not a man of ethnic descent, especially considering that the media was saying he was white originally, that the same justifiable homicide is no longer justifiable.

This is why I questioned whether or not I have a right to defend myself in such a situation considering that my mom is german and my dad was english.

I would say that yes, the only thing that should concern us is what happened between Martin and Zimmerman, that is if we lived in a just world, but we do not.

Somehow, Zimmerman’s genetic make-up matters in this instance, and I find that absolutely preposterous. What it was was an law abiding man defending his life from a violent criminal. Sadly, this case has illustrated to me that we live in an astonishlingly racist country, though the racism does not eminate from whites.

What the race baiters are/ were essentially saying is that a white man does not have the right to defend his life with deadly force from a violent black attacker, althogh they certainly did try to portray Martin as an innocent lamb, which is he clearly was not.

Right. Yes, they would have. That is the reality. Did you think the race baiters had some other motivation? Did you think the MSM had some other motivation? Do you think Angela Corey had some other motivation? You keep bringing your "rights" into this. Do you think any of those people care about your "rights?"

AH no, I don’t think any one of those people give a damn about my rights sadly. These are evil, evil people.

I care about my rights though, which is why I must ask as a white-white male, do I have the right to defend myself from an ethnic attacker.

At this point in the history of America, it looks like the answer is no.

But yeah, I think the race baiters would have ho-hummed it, no doubt. They’ve no other motivation in this matter but to stir racial unrest and distrust.

You know, TigersEye, they are literally hate mongers, their purpose being to stir and incubate hate. I swear I have never heard a man with as foul a voice as Al Sharpton. He literally sounds like the official annoucer of Hell >_>

Those things are the only reason the incident was ever more than a local story about a case of self-defense. That is the answer to your "Yeah, but so what?" The political agenda is the so what. It is why we are all talking about it. When you ask that question here on FR it sounds like you think we shouldn't address it whether you intended it to or not.

No, I didn’t intend it as such. Seems like my original posts may have been poorly worded.

I get pretty upset just reading about this case, so as a result I post while being upset and don’t always come across as I intended.

I am really bothered by the racial aspects of this case, the seemingly purposeful ripping open of and salting of old wounds...and for what... to aid the re-election of our scumbag creep president?!

I mean the very idea that there are people who would see an innocent man in jail or even lynched, possibly start some sort of race war which could result in other innocent people dying just to stir up a certain vote base or even cause riots thus allowing martial law declarations really illustrate to me we have really, really Evil people among us, and I mean 1940’s Nazi type of Evil.

Please, God Help us.
