Skip to comments.Latino organizations dismiss George Zimmerman, question his ethnicity
Posted on 03/29/2012 10:46:15 AM PDT by maggief
The death of Trayvon Martin has sent racial shock-waves through the country, and while the focus has largely been on anger from the black community, the fact remains that the alleged shooter, currently in hiding from vigilante threats, is a self-described Hispanic man.
But if George Zimmerman was hoping to find support in the Latino community, he should look elsewhere.
The Latino community joins the African-American community and other communities in condemning George Zimmerman as what he is a murderer and a racist, Roberto Lovato, co-founder of the online Latino advocacy organization Presente.org, told The Daily Caller.
The group is acting on Trayvons behalf. Presente.org has joined with Color of Change to petition for the arrest of Martins murderer.
Todos somos Trayvon! (We are all Trayvon!), Presente.org wrote, urging supporters to sign the petition. The group also has a petition to condemn Geraldo Rivera for blaming Martins hoodie for his death. According to Lovato, the petition currently has 18,000 signatures.
La Raza has rallied for Martin with the civil rights community as well.
The organizations urged so much in a March 22 post at the Huffington Post.
NCLR joins allies in the civil rights community in calling for a real investigation for this grievous failure of justice, president and CEO Janet Murguía wrote.

They are not just ‘latino’ organizations but Leftist Latino Organizations!
Don’t you just love these self-appointed “Leaders” who speak for whole “Communities”!
Zimmerman is a member of the Florida Democrat Party..probably voted for Obama in 2008..I think it safe to say that Obama has lost a voter. Hopefully others will see the DNC for exactly what they are and more will be leaving them. The left only supports Hispanics if they are here illegally, otherwise they are considered “White”
Next we’ll see 2 new categories on all Gov forms: White Hispanic and Good Hispanic.
Then by definition he is mestizo and hence hispanic
Response: Add gays, Asians and non-christians to these two groups and one has a "COALITION" a "BLOC OF VOTES" dedicated to establishing Third World dominance over the United States.
Leftist Latino Organizations: “Screw Zimmerman! Trying to be member of the community by helping enforce the white man’s laws. He isn’t one of us! Screw him!”
I’ll say it again...
Obama is half White/half Black. So he is considered Black.
Zimmerman is half White/half Hispanic. So he is considered White. Say what????
These race baiters are so far beyond jumping the shark.
My daughter married a 1/2 hispanic 1/2 jewish man. He is all American. And a natural born Texan, although they live in N. VA now.
“Texas is not where you were born but a State of Mind, Heart and Attitude.”
There have always been Tejanos in Texas. They were there at the Alamo and at San Jacinton.
This is not about race, it is about freedom. It is about preserving the Republic. It is about stopping those who wish to make Serfs out of us all.
We are headed for another trial of the century when the arrest Zimmerman. That is if they don’t lynch him first. If the outcome in not correct..well then there will be riots. If they announce they won’t arrest him..there will be riots.
Ah. a whole new concept: Officially disown members of your own ethnicity if they rock your boat.
Todos somos Trayvon! (We are all Trayvon!),
Indeed, they are.
Not Latino enough.
>> a whole new concept: Officially disown members of your own ethnicity if they rock your boat.<<
Not at all new. Ever hear of Clarence Thomas? Also, Bill Cosby has gotten a lot of heat for wandering off the race baiter reservation.
Obama is more white. He was raised by the white side and didn’t know his father. Zim was raised by both parents
