Obama is such a tool to try and politically profit off what is a tragic case.
Shame on you Mr Obama.
…a new Rasmussen poll shows that George Zimmerman, the Hispanic man recently acquitted in the fatal shooting of Martin, is viewed favorably by 32% of the public (six points higher than Sharpton), and unfavorably by less than half of the public, 48% (compared to Sharpton's 60%).
What's remarkable is that after 15 months of the media, political left, and Barack Obama engaging in a relentless campaign of lies, race-baiting, fabricating evidence, and selective reporting against Zimmerman, his unfavorable rating isn't above 50%.

Don't pander to anyone that says this is about race. They are desperately TRYING to make this about race. These shills ignore the fact that both of TM's parents said this wasn't about race. The lawyer for the Martin family said this was not about race. The jurors said this was jot about race. The prosecutor said this was not about race.
Don't give any legitimacy to the race pimps. GZ was not a racist. The FBI did a 16 month investigation interviewing 47 people and not one said GZ was a racist or had ever said anything racial in nature. GZ mentored 12-16 year old minority kids. When the program was defended he continued to mentor these kids on his own dime in his own home. He had a black gf and took her to the prom. That's not the profile of a racist.

Anything to make whites feel more guilty and blacks more prosecuted. Nothing like racial tensions to help divide and conquer. Soon, it won't matter at all seeing we'll all be sitting on the street together starving begging for a government handout which will never come as we slowly perish, together.
Those who don't see what's going on is blinded by manufactured anger. It's not their fault, it's ours for allowing it to happen in the first place.
Nationwide rallies against the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin drew small crowds, a sign that Americans had largely accepted the verdict and that race relations are not nearly as frayed as Al Sharpton's National Action Network had sought to indicate. The flagship rally in New York only drew a crowd of "hundreds," while a rally in Newport News, Virginia struggled to draw two dozen.
'Justice for Trayvon' Protests Draw Small Crowds; Nation Moves On
and that race relations are not nearly as frayed
Now what's the next diversion ?
Truth, indeed, is something that is believed in completely only by persons who have never tried personally to pursue it to its fastness and grab it by the tail. It is the adoration of second-rate men — men who always receive it as second-hand. Pedagogues believe in immutable truths and spend their lives trying to determine them and propagate them; the intellectual progress of man consists largely of a concerted effort to block and destroy their enterprise.
Nine times out of ten, in the arts as in life, there is actually no truth to be discovered; there is only error to be exposed. In whole departments of human inquiry it seems to me quite unlikely that the truth ever will be discovered. Nevertheless, the rubber-stamp thinking of the world always makes the assumption that the exposure of an error is identical with the discovery of truth — that error and truth are simply opposites. They are nothing of the sort. What the world turns to, when it has been cured of one error, is usually simply another error, and maybe one worse than the first one. This is the whole history of the intellect in brief. The average man of today does not believe in precisely the same imbecilities that the Greek of the Fourth Century before Christ believed in, but the things that he does believe in are often quite as idiotic.
Perhaps this statement is a bit too sweeping. There is, year by year, a gradual accumulation of what may be called, provisionally, truths — there is a slow accretion of ideas that somehow manage to meet all practicable human tests, and so survive. But even so, it is risky to call them absolute truths. All that one may safely say of them is that no one, as yet, has demonstrated that they are errors. Soon or late, if experience teaches us anything, they are likely to succumb too. The profoundest truths of the Middle Ages are now laughed at by schoolboys. The profoundest truths of democracy will be laughed at, a few centuries hence, even by school-teachers.
So you cheer the fact that no one cares about justice?
