George Zimmermanís Brother Clashes With Piers Morgan in Fiery Exchange
The Blaze via CNN ^ | Mar. 27, 2013 | Jason Howerton

On Wednesday night, CNN’s Piers Morgan hosted Robert Zimmerman, Jr., the brother of George Zimmerman, whose controversial tweet comparing Trayvon Martin to De’Marquise Kareem Elkins, a Georgia teenager accused of shooting a 13-month-old baby in the face, has sparked cries of racism.

Morgan almost immediately went after Zimmerman, saying his tweets comparing the two “black boys” were “very controversial” and “bordering on outright racism.”

Here are the tweets in question:

I just watched this interview. George Zimmerman said he apologized for the tweet but the true target in the tweet was the liberal media. Piers Morgan used it to claim the whole family must be racist and that is why angel Trayvon is dead. Zimmerman gets in some digs about Piers bringing up skittles again and brings up things about angel Trayvon the liberal media has been suppressing.

Were the pics faked?

Or - perhaps - Trevon was as repulsive as he looks in those pics.

Must have been photoshopped by sleazy racist white guy.

Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Robert was right on target.

 

That's why the left got their panties in a wad.

Anytime someone shines a light on the fact that there is a “black” culture which feeds their feral behavior, the elite media cries racism. They can’t allow their pacified voting block to be exposed to thinking people.

I’ve seen Robert Zimmerman in various interviews and he appears to be very astute and articulate. Too bad he apologized. He should have stood his ground and articulated the point about wannabe thugs.

There is no “wannabe thugs” once they start being thugs.

Robert Zimmerman is right on and should stick by his guns. Trayvon Martin and DeMarquis Elkins were both 17 year old gangsta wannabees who attacked without provocation innocent white Hispanics.

They both had Facebook/Myspace pages dedicated to their gangsta aspirations, and families providing excuses and alibis for them, tampering with evidence, lying to the authorities, accusing their victims for having the audacity to defend themselves and fingering their attacker.

Watch as the Elkin’s public defender morphs into a white Benjamin Crump and goes after the mother of the baby saying she profiled the thug and she would have been alright if she had only stayed home and not left her apartment.

The kids are totally different. One is a gangster wannabe murder. The other is a sweet, innocent middle-school student who was gunned down in cold blood while bringing home Skittles and Iced Tea for his baby brother - killed by a man who racially profiled him just because the innocent little boy cased a few homes and committed assault and attempted murder on his way home.

Robert Zimmerman actually handled himself well.....he does much better with the media than Mark O’Mara...who acts like a vagina when dealing with the media.

Robt Zimmerman is winning this round.....he has the liberal media looking stupid again....in time Robt Zimmerman is coming out ahead

Granted. However, many inner-city as young (even at 8 years old) aspire and/or coerced to just to survive in the hood (think Chicago, Detroit, Philly, DC, et al).

Those poor (don't mean economically) fatherless/welfare motherless children are put out on the street as soon as the so-called adults can. Our culture now encourages it. I saw it back in the 90's when I would go to pick up my company mail close the East LA. There were endless latino children walking the streets. They love their bambinos, but once they get around 8-10 years old, they're on the streets. Ever wonder why there is such a problem with latino gangs?

I'm so sick of everyone skirting around the real problem about blacks, latinos, and even some whites:
Which is:
1. Fatherless children;
2. Uncaring irresponsible mothers on welfare;
3. Dysfunctional school systems;
4. Race-baiters;
5. Socialist politicians and their bleeding heart policies.

I could go on, but you get my point that accountability, responsibility, shame, and respect are dying values. I'm really starting to hate the people of this nation, especially after electing the "Hopey" guy that continues to give them stuff.

Last and most important point: I personally don't believe that ANYONE should be able to vote who doesn't pay taxes! And there are a huge percentage of them.

I used to be a singularly culturist (still am), now I'm becoming a racist. I hate myself for that, but I hate them more for making me so.

I am with you brother. I have said nearly the same things. I am more angry at Obama and the leftist for making me dislike and distrust large groups of people, than anything else they have done.

I think I am a good guy and I believe in judging people on individual merit, but only an ignorant fool could not prejudge people today. I do not like that, but I am still willing to give people a change to change my prejudgment of them. I loath the day that will no longer be possible.

The commie leftist are making me cold.

What a boorish, self-agrandizing demagogue Piers is. He never, ever allows an opposing opinion to be completely stated (he can’t, of course, from fear). He is steeped in rules for radicals and just plain nastiness.
