    I think the right wing GOP and media have done a great job spinning the race issue. They claim Zimmerman is not White but hispanic when We can see he and his brother light enough to pass for White which a lot of Jewish, Hispanic, and even Black people have done if they were Light enough to pass. The fact a Judge could hear the 9/11 take with Trayvon yelling for help, and then Blame President Obama lets me know; there were probably many defendant before him that did not get a fair trial. Still Today; No Arrest of Zimmerman, Lots of lost evidence, So I truly believe the Media needs to stop passing on what Zimmerman's friends and relatives have to say. Let Zimmerman come forth, since He still Hasnt Been Charged With Any Crime. Although I think a person calling 9/11 over 40 times since last year for garbage, a garage door being left open, etc...should be arrested for that,

    If Zimmerman is a "white" hispanic ... no offence ... but is Soledad a "white" black woman? She most certainly is fair.

    My TV is not that clear that I can tell and it seem so evident today that Black Folks want to be recognized as such.

    So I am just asking.
