Regardless of what the jury decides, George Zimmerman’s life has been forever changed. Even if he is found not guilty, he will never again be a free man. The media branded him a racist and spun the story. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson prepared the pyre and stake before the body was even cold. They are out for blood, not justice.
And they will get it too. It doesn’t matter that the blood will be from innocent bystanders injured or killed in the inevitable riots or celebrations (Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference). All that matters is propping up the rotting equine known as racism so they can claim continued relevance.
Zimmerman didn’t throw back the curtain on any inherent racism in the community. Race-baiters manufactured it with the gleeful assistance of the media. Sensationalism at the expense of justice.
Trayvon Martin didn’t have to die that night. It was his decisions, not his skin color, that sealed his fate.
