My question is why a Hispanic guy is being referred to as a "cracker"? That makes no sense at all..... If you're going to make a racially motivated Tshirt, at least get your slang terms correct for the intended audience. That just makes the person who made it look like an even bigger fool than may have originally been thought.

Expanding the definition of “cracker,” a t-shirt featuring the photo of the man who shot Trayvon Martin is now available for purchase. As seen at right (click to enlarge), the shirt has a picture of George Zimmerman and the words “P***y Ass Cracker.” Zimmerman, a 28-year-old Hispanic, killed Martin, 17, last month while acting as a neighborhood watch captain in Sanford, Florida.
Lets all combat perceived racism with racism! What an insult to all the 'crackers' who are supporting the family and Trayvon. Why did this go racial? To sell newspapers and get ad clicks. This is what I was worried about. This ensures Zimmerman will never be able to go to trial. This whole situation is disgusting. I'm holding off on condemning anyone before all the facts are out, but I certainly condemn those that would use a young mans death to fuel their racist agendas, on either side of the fence.

Explain to me please how "hispanics" as you classify them (mexicans, south americans and central) are caucasion. Caucasion derives from Caucus which comes from the caucus moutain region in Europe. Caucasions are from Europe. "Hispanics" for one, shouldn't even be a name to classify them, and for two, just because they can mark a certain box on the census form doesn't make it right and exact. So explain if you can, how caucasion and mexicans, central and south americans and etc. are the same.

This whole thing is turning stupid now. Seriously people lost their way of reasoning, and letting emotions overcome. How is making T-Shirts with 'cracker' on it going to help bring justice?
Sybrina Fulton is seeking marks for the phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon,” according to filings made last week with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In both instances, Fulton, 46, is seeking the trademarks for use on “Digital materials, namely, CDs and DVDs featuring Trayvon Martin,” and other products.
Unfortunately we live in a country where people do judge a book by its cover. People need to think about how they project themselves is what I am trying to say.
