Zimmerman blames Obama for racial tension after shooting

Trayvon Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, released a video Monday in which he claims President Obama stoked racial tension and used “incendiary” language following the 2012 Florida shooting.

Zimmerman, 31, a white man acquitted based on the controversial “stand your ground” defense, said he now feels free to speak “without fear of retaliation” because federal prosecutors decided not to press civil-rights charges against him last month in the death of the unarmed black 17-year-old in Sanford, Fla.

“Now is the perfect time to speak my mind Zimmerman,” said.

“President Obama held his Rose Garden speech stating, ‘If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.’ Unfortunately for the president, I’m also my parent’s child and my life matters as well.”

Zimmerman was an armed neighborhood watchman in his gated community who approached Martin as the teen walked back home from a store.

He claimed that Obama pitted Americans against each other by making “racially charged comments” about the incident.

    “Zimmerman,31, a white man..” so who knew that the Hispanic could be symmetrical to white for purposes of ethnocentrism.

    Three things wrong there. Can you spot them?

    Of course, “stand your ground” came into it. If someone attacks you and you don’t run away, but fight back, it’s called “standing your ground.”
