Hedkwab: What you don't know is that a lot of `Whites` in the south have an ancestor that was Black. Records were sketchy and sometimes falsified back then, misogyny was kept a secret. Most people light skinned enough to pass as white did so.
Most people in the south would find it hard to prove they don`t have any mixed ancestors, they know that now and are less likely to be racist because of it.
There are racists of every color, creed, income level, sexual orientation, and location. There are people in Africa fighting each other over a minor difference in skin color and most people here would call both groups `Black`. There are Arabs fighting Persians fighting Kurds fighting Turks fighting Greeks and they all look olive skinned to me.

Slightly More Information It sure sounds like: Zimmerman saw a black kid, called 911, followed him in his car. Confronted kid, a fight broke out. During the fight the kid was shot.
Who started the fight? Was Zimmerman allowed to confront the "suspect" because he's Neighborhood Watch? Is the only reason that Trayvon was confronted because he`s Black?
It`s truely sad that a young person was killed, but calling for the other man to be crucified isn`t going to help matters.
