In Florida, a Hispanic man shot a black youth, and this is a big news story because it has become a story about a racist white killing an innocent black.
We should be reminded that NAMs kill NAMs and NAMs kill whites all the time, and it’s never much of a story because the mainstream media has low expectations for NAMs.
The shooter, George Zimmerman, looks Hispanic, but the MSM thinks he’s white because (1) he has a non-Hispanic last name (inherited from his non-Hispanic father, but if Obama can have a white mother and still be black, then why can't George Zimmerman have a white father and be Hispanic?); and (2) as a homeowner who’s afraid of black youths walking around in his gated community, he is acting white.
On the other hand, if a bunch of Skinheads killed Mr. Zimmerman, then the same MSM would be saying that he was the Hispanic victim of a racist murder.

This incident also demonstrates why it's a bad idea to carry a gun around for "self-defense." There's too high of a risk of using it in a manner that gets you convicted of murder.
I think that Zimmerman believed he was shooting a bad guy, but evidence points to a jury not seeing it that way.

Also, news reports say that the cop reported that Zimmerman was bleeding from his nose and the back of his head and had grass on his back, so unless Zimmerman bloodied himself to fake the look of a fight, the most likely scenario is that Zimmerman (who appears to be a prolish loser) was overzealous in pursuing this kid, and the kid acted in a typically low-class black manner and attempted to assert his manhood by engaging in a physical altercation; god-forbid he lose face to a fat half-white half-Hispanic guy pretending to be a cop.
