Skip to comments.Is Zimmerman White because a "Hate Crime" form doesn't list Hispanic as one of the options? (PDF)

I don't know if George Zimmerman is guilty or not. I wasn't there. That's not what this post is about.
I had already noticed that Zimmerman was always referred to as White but every picture I had seen of him looked Hispanic. I assumed that this the old "White on Black crime fits the narrative" trick of the media we've all grown used to. But it was brought to my attention that there may be an insidious official aspect to this matter that no one has mentioned.
Look at this PDF file. Notice that it's located on http://www2.fbi.gov. That's as real as it gets. Look at page 122 and 123. It shows copies of the Hate Crime Incident Report (Form 1-699). Compare the middle section titled "Bias Motivation" with the bottom section titled "Race of Offender(s) as an individual or group". Notice anything that appears in the middle section but not in the bottom section?
Hispanic is not one of the available options for "Race of Offender." Nor is Other. Any police department using this form would be likely to report George Zimmerman as being White if he were the offender but Hispanic if he were the victim. This would seem to me to skew the data collected away from Hispanics. And this is an official form located on an FBI server. (Yes, I know it's from 2004. No, I have no idea if it has been revised. I do know that it's the very first hit if you Google "UCR handbook online.")
Maybe we should start calling him Jorge!
Hate crime legislation: Because some victims are more equal than others.
I saw one article that described him as a “white Hispanic”. Whatever that is.
The validity of your argument notwithstanding, “Hispanic/Latino” is an ETHNIC group; not a race. That ethnic group, like most others, contains individuals of different races.
Hispanic isn't really a race, but it is considered one because it serves liberal purposes of Balkanizing America. They would like to exclude people of Spanish descent because they are too light skinned and not good at staying on the plantation. But they can't because Spain is the origin of the fake race Hispanic.
So they set up hierarchies within the classification. Light skinned Hispanics from Spain are therefore a lower class of Hispanic. Zimmermann, obviously being a German name, indicates his blood is polluted by intermarriage with an inferior race. So that makes him even a lower grade Hispanic.
Surely new avenues have been opened up for "hate studies.". Perhaps committees will have to convened to look into whether or not Hispanic vs Negro hate is even possible.
My understanding, however, is that only whites are capable of the "crime" of "hate."
This one is about to blow up right in the Dems’ face I feel.
Pretty soon Hispanics are going to decide that this guy is being railroaded and they are gonna start pushing back.
Blacks vs. Hispanics is the epic “End of the Universe” battle that the Democrat Party has been dreading.
It will be interesting to see if a riot or two can be made out of this killing?
no hable espanol ~
Mannnnn! Thats Enrico’s cousin!
Call him white and you got a fight!
He ain’t no steekin englais!
The people need to stick to the fax!
The Federal government does not consider “Hispanic” a race. It is a demographic. “Hispanic” is more of an indicator of where a person is from, not what race they are. So, with the race choices being white, African-American, Asian, Pacific Islander or American Indian, I can see why Zimmerman is placed under “white”.
They’ve been doing this for some time. Somehow, Hispanic or Latino is a race when it comes to victims, but not for perps.
He is not white he is hispanic.It is the racists like Sharpton who is calling him white trying to start riots.
He’s white because he’s half white
The president is black because he’s half white
Blacks v. Hispanics is already reality on the streets of many cities.
Yep. The FBI considers Hispanics as White when reporting crime but Hispanics are counted as Hispanics when a victim of crime. Totally racist.
On the other hand, there is a racial subgroup of South American/Mestizo background that is by appearance—and for any potential discrimination based on appearance—what would commonly be called Hispanic or Latino as well.
Zimmerman is White because his name sounds Jewish!
