Believe me, I get what you're saying, but there's a huge difference between being racist and being a bigot or prejudiced. Sure, black people can be prejudiced, but being racist isn't an option, and I'll explain this again. In order to be racist, one would have to be a part of the predominate race that can socially and economically cause systematic problems for people that are not of said race. Black people don't control ANYTHING socially or economically, PERIOD, And especially not Barry. White guys run this thing WORLDWIDE...it's just a fact. To me personally, race doesn't matter to me. My great-great grandfather was white, and my daughter is half white. A man's character, individually, is what matters to me, not his race.
rac·ism [rey-siz-uhm] Show IPA noun 1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

It's not legal to shoot someone you provoked a fight with, by following him, which can be seen as a threat. If an older male was following me at 17, I would probably be scared for my potential life. It is just straight up creepy.
It's not legal to shoot someone unless your life is threatened (self defense).
Zimmerman had no visible injuries, I really doubt much of a fight happened by looking at the police tape after the incident.
On the 911 call you hear a YOUNG man screaming for help and then once the shot occurs, it stops. Witness testimony, video,and telephone recordings all point of the guilt of Zimmerman, not Trayvon.
