A Case of Mistaken “Racial” Identity?

 

Say what you must about the Trayvon Martin shooting but there is another interesting story afoot. George Zimmerman is having a racial identity crisis. Check out his websites and make a decision for yourself. Is he a victim of media hype that has labeled his supposed offense a “hate crime” because he was white and attacked a black man? Or, maybe this is when people who have a racial ambiguity to them (George looks a little Hispanic and he identifies as Hispanic) don’t want to be categorized as white folks? Race matters in America??? Just check out the links below for George Zimmerman’s websites:
