NYC Democrat Mayoral Candidate: “Trayvon Martin was killed because he was black”

When you’re losing to Anthony Weiner you’ll say just about anything for attention. One upside to this Zimmerman acquittal is we get to see all the liberal racists expose themselves.

Mayoral hopeful William Thompson on Monday defended his provocative comments in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin verdict, saying he was merely “stating the obvious.”

Shortly after George Zimmerman’s acquittal of all charges in Trayvon’s death, Thompson sent out this message Saturday night to his 4,200 followers on Twitter:

“Trayvon Martin was killed because he was black. There was no justice done today in Florida.”

“I don’t think it was an overstatement at all,” Thompson, the only African-American running for mayor, said. “If you listened and looked at the trial, it was an unfortunate statement of fact.”

Actually if he had looked at the trial in an unbiased fashion he’d have come to the same logical conclusion as the jury.
Some criticized Thompson’s remarks. City Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Queens) said he would “expect this type of remark from (the Rev. Al Sharpton), not from you.”
