if you're interested in the jury pool, they have some characters: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/trayvon-martin/os-george-zimmerman-trial-day-5-20130614,0,4073321.story?page=1

 

also it appears as though george zimmerman sr likely posts regularly here in the tinderbox:

 

As the murder trial for George Zimmerman begins, his father has released an emotional and highly unusual e-book, publicly opining on all aspects of the case. The book by Robert Zimmerman Sr., called “Florida v. Zimmerman: Uncovering the Malicious Prosecution of my Son, George” was released today on Amazon for $3.99.

 

The most striking chapter is called “Who Are The True Racists,” an apparent effort to rebut claims that his son’s actions were racially motivated.

 

Previously, Zimmerman Sr. “believed generally racism was a thing of the past.” He says that, personally, he hadn’t encountered much racism, even though his wife is Hispanic. But after his son shot and killed Trayvon Martin, however, Zimmerman learned that racism is “flourishing at the insistence of some in the African American Community.” He then goes on to list various black leaders and organizations that he believes are racist:

Congressional Black Caucus.
“[A] pathetic, self-serving group of racists… advancing their purely racist agenda.” He later adds that “all members of Congress should be ashamed of the Congressional Black Caucus, as should be their constituents.” And finally: “They are truly a disgrace to all Americans.”

The NAACP.
imply promotes racism and hatred for their own, primarily finical, interests” and “without prejudice and racial divide, the NAACP would simply cease to exist.”

NAACP President Benjamin Jealous.
“[W]hat I would expect of a racist.”

Trayvon Martin’s funeral director.
A “racial activist and former head of the local NAACP.”

Benjamin Crump, Natialie Jackson and Darrly Parks, attorneys for Travyon Martin’s family.
“The scheme team.”

The National Basketball Players Association.

Black Chamber of Commerce.

National Association of Black Law Enforcement Officers.

National Black United Fund.

United
*****
College Fund.

While stopping short of explicitly calling President Obama a racist, Zimmerman Sr. does say that Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have “shamelessly” sought to exploit his son’s case “to obtain great advantage in the African-American community.”

 

Zimmerman Sr. says that because of Holder’s decision to investigate whether Trayvon Martin’s death violated federal civil rights laws, the FBI did not have “adequate resources to investigate clearly identified potential terrorist [sic] in the Boston area.” Now, “tragically, we have suffered the consequences of Mr. Holder’s politically motivated decisions.”

I understand. It's hard to pretend racism really doesn't exist if people keep bringing it up.

I personally should try to let your and others near daily dogwhistle racism slide with nary a word. Unfortunately my conscious won't let me.

I wonder if it is possible for some people on here to actually not see race in every issue... can they actually conceive of any situation where race is not even considered by the parties involved?

hahaha seriously we're going to have this discussion in a thread where a guy is calling out random organizations for being racist because they provide support to black Americans?

One thing is for sure.  This trial has got to be one of the easiest in history for a potential juror to avoid being selected if they do not want to be.

That Larry David episode comes to mind.

I still think both sides are retarded. 

 

Zimmerman for playing Paul Blart Mall Cop and Martin for beating the poo out a man who had a gun.
