This message was put on the sign at New Era Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, on Sunday, July 14, 2013.
The flip side of the sign refers to a 1983 rape case for which the three black assailants are still serving time in prison.
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - New Era Baptist Church Pastor Michael R. Jordan has expressed his outrage over the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict with a bold statement on the church sign.
On one side of the sign it says, George Zimmerman jury supported white racism.
On the other, he posted a reference to the 1983 Baby Doe's rape case in Birmingham:
"Rape a white woman and you will die in prison," the sign says.
To Jordan, it sums up inequities in the U.S. judicial system.
"I put them up yesterday after church," Jordan said. "Im crushed by that racist verdict down in Florida. You can kill an African American and you will walk down in Florida."
Hundreds of people marched in Birmingham today to protest the verdict. Martin's parents came to Birmingham to take part in a march May 3, 2012, when Birmingham made Trayvon Martin an honorary citizen.
Jordan said the not guilty verdict for Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who followed Trayvon Martin, 17, as he walked through a gated neighborhood after buying Skittles and tea at a nearby convenience store, was unjust.
"With the evidence, theres no way they could say it was anything but racism by George Zimmerman," Jordan said.....

every black who prejudeged this case, and thinks the verdict is wrong, in light of the evidence, witnesses and testimonies, is racist.
rape should be a capital crime.
i also believe lying and framing someone for a capital crime, should be a capital crime, too.
to get the pic right trayvon should be 6 feet tall, pounding on the guy while straddling him on the ground...
the only hoodie being worn was on trayvon, too, fyi...
The IRS will review the tax expempt status of this “church” in 3....2...1....(crickets chirping)
Trayvon was not African American. He was American.
Yeah but it doesn’t count if the Black woman was raped by Black men. Just like Blacks murdering other Blacks it’s a non issue.
What comment is necessary???? You said it all, brother.
This man has the spirit of the devil inside of him. He must repent and rid himself of his hatred for Gods children.
I think the country as a whole is immune to the racist charge anymore. Its been overplayed and over done for years. Problem, I have a feeling that those who are being called racist will also reach a tipping point.
What I like about this artist is that he subtle, not over the top at all. /s
New Era Baptist “Church” fails in its attempt to be taken seriously by reasonable, rational people without a racial axe to grind. It is looking more and more like the Jeremiah Wrights are the rule and not the exception. I hope that I am wrong about this.
He probably has a congregation of 9 — and now it is down to 8.
Jordan has made news before with his controversial signs. In 2008 he posted a sign saying, “Warning: Crack cocaine is sold on this street,”
The roster of Defamation defendants is getting longer by the day.
Yeah, it’s apparent that any group can call themselves a church today and anyone can call themselves a pastor.
I’m beginning to suspect my dog is racist. I’m sure about the cat.

Thanks. We need to collect data on the way that the rights of white people are being violated. It has become very clear that there are many in positions of power whether in the government or media who think nothing of throwing us to the wolves.
