Breaking News in Trayvon Martin Shooting

 

Trayvon Martin via Facebook

Well, things are getting interesting down in Florida.

  • The case went to the state’s attorney on Monday for review, a review which can take several weeks.
  • Members of the NAACP have written to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder citing their belief that the local sheriff is not up to snuff on this investigation and requesting Justice Department investigators.
  • ABC News reports speaking to a witness the night of the shooting who, when giving her statement to police, said she had heard the teenager call for help and was “corrected” by the officer who told her no, she had heard Zimmerman. Another witness reportedly saw the two men on the ground.
  • There was a rally for justice at Sanford’s Allen Chapel AME today, drawing in a crowd of hundreds, plus the Rev. Jamal Bryant, a prominent Baltimore evangelist, who vowed to “take down Florida” if George Zimmerman isn’t arrested.
  • It has now been verified that George Zimmerman is Hispanic, not “white”. Obviously the people who think that matters have never lived in Florida. The Hispanics and the Blacks don’t get along real well, either.
  • The mainstream media have now discovered the story. Stories from ABC and CNN are in the top 10 on Google.

We will keep reporting anything new that comes up of any importance. Rehashing the same story day after day with no new developments is NOT something we’re going to do… but we won’t forget, either.

    Miss LaVictoire:

    No offense taken; I apologize if I seemed as such. I also needed to clarify as my posts combined were confusing.

    Miss LaVictoire:

    I am Hispanic. I am aware of the characterization and makeup of the Hispanic ethnicity including racial variety.

    The posting you replied to is a direct quote I posted from a source in the Miami Herald news agency- they were not my words.

    I posted it in lieu of my prior question as to where the veracity of Zimmerman’s race/ethnicity came from; something I still subscribe not important to the event reported, just a mere curiosity.

    By the way, here is the confirmation reply I received:

    Robles, Frances [mailto:xxx@miamiherald.com]
    Sent: Thursday, March 15, 2012 7:37 AM

    “Confirmation obtained via his neighbor, the police, and his voter registration . (apparently he’s half Peruvian)”

      Mr. Monk,

      My great-grandmother was born in Chile. She had black hair, grey eyes and pale skin. Just because Zimmerman is Hispanic does not mean he is not white. Being Hispanic is not like being Black or Asian or Native American or Indian, etc. Hispanics are a cultural group and ethnicity, and they come in all colors from Black to White. It is even possible to be an Asian Hispanic just like former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori, who was born in Lima Peru.

    I’d like to understand where the veracity of Zimmerman’s race or ethnicity comes from as affirmed by this article. I have only found one reliable media outlet stating such today and I put out a message to have that verification replied to me as well. I am only curious about this, even though it is not important to the event reported.

    I am, however, dismayed at the casualness of making the generalization that “The Hispanics and the Blacks don’t get along real well…”

    I live in Orlando and in Florida for about 30 years. I have had no issues of this sort throughout the state nor have witnessed such in my surroundings or relationships. I advocate in the public sector for relationships within communities regardless of race or ethnicity; generalizations of this sort do not convey well to the efforts or desire of eradicating them.

      My apologies for not explaining this a few days ago. My experience in Florida was working for a non-profit for five years that specialized in juvenile rehabilitation, with most students having been adjudicated 8-12 times before being sent to one of our programs. What I was specifically referring to were the tensions that existed between black and hispanic gang members, both male and female, when they first entered the programs.
      I’m sorry if I offended you of anyone else who is trying to bring peace to those communities. Good luck with the good work.

    Why is it that it seems like African-Americans and the press want the shooter to be white? They keep spreading lies! Sorry! He is not white. He’s clearly Hispanic from the looks of his photo. Supposedly this article claims that he has been varified as Hispanic, but why is everyone still saying he is white? And the kids sent a schoolmate to the ER, so I believe he probably was attacking Zimmerman. They always try to make them out to be saints after the fact.

    Whites are ten times more likely to fall victim to a black perp in a violent crime than vice versa. FACT!!!

      You do know that it is possible to be both White and Hispanic?

    I’m sorry I just don’t get why this man is not behind bars or why was a community watch member walking around with a gun? Is that something exclusive to FL? Lastly, I don’t give a damn about Zimmerman’s race or the race of this poor kid–he was murdered and it looks like the authorities are ignoring it?

    Black on Black killings don’t rate high on the alarm meter, so Zimmerson’s defense thinks being Hispanic will make his offense less offensive? They must think black people are mightily stupid to buy that one.
