George Zimmerman's Black Ancestry is Revealed
Gather ^ | April 26, 2012 | Jim Kane

Al Sharpton isn't going to be happy when he hears this. Apparently, George Zimmerman, who killed an unarmed Trayvon Martin in February, has black ancestors.

The 28-year-old former neighborhood watchman is depicted in the media as an "angry white man" with hatred toward other ethnic groups. That narrative fits perfectly with liberals' view of America as a racist nation in which black children live in constant fear of white vigilantes, but this story is taking some interesting twists.

The neighborhood watchman shot an unarmed Martin inside a gated condo complex in Sanford, FL.

It turns out he is of mixed ethnicity, and has "black roots through an Afro-Peruvian great-grandfather - the father of the maternal grandmother who helped raise him."

The complex guard was clearly overzealous when he confronted Martin, but young black men were suspected in a recent rash of break-ins in the area. The details of their altercation are murky, but witnesses support Zimmerman's version of events.

Zimmerman has already been prosecuted in the court of public opinion, so it's impossible to hold a fair trial. Most people have formed their opinions, but hopefully this new information will present a more nuanced picture of the tragic event.

(A) He wasn’t on “guard” duty or neighborhood watch when he spotted young Master Trayvon Martin, he was on his way to the store and (B) he didn’t confront him, based on what we know at this point.

The Reuters article says one of his relatives is Afro-Peruvian so I guess its:

Jewish-White-Afro-Peruvian-Afican-American-Mestizo-Hispanic?

Dude is a human melting pot...

While I agree with B, I disagree with A

If you have ever been part of a neighborhood watch program, anytime you are outside of your house, you are on “duty” because you are looking for things that are suspicious.

So, now that it turns out this was in fact a black-on-black crime, will they let it go?

The dude is part black, so it turns out that Obama’s son would look more like George than Trayvon! Oh, how I love industrial-strength irony.

we're letting the opposition frame the arguement....we shouldn't be spending any time explaining away Z's actions or rationalizing them because he's got a pint of dark blood in him...

being black,hispanic,or jewish shouldn't be a get out of jail free card...

if Z was 100%caucasian would he then be MORE guilty?....

Weird coincidence, how the media lies fit exactly with liberals' views.

My husband & I were on a neighborhood watch program about 10 years ago & anything or anybody that didn’t belong we questioned. It could be cars parked on an empty cul-de-sac, home doors open & no one around, people who didn’t belong in the area etc. We have had car & home breakins & I have 2 houses on one side where the people have died & they have been empty for over 2 years & the other side where the couple leave for up north all summer. I still am aware of who is driving around & who belongs in this area. If I was having my head struck against the cement I would do the same as Mr. Zimmerman.

Afro-Peruvian?

My mind is splitting for all the new PC terms I must know in order to be up to snuff...

I thought Afro-Peruvian was referring to the Lion enclosure at the Lima zoo....
