Benjamin Crump, attorney for Trayvon Martin’s family, made a comment that Race is "the elephant in the room" in this case. George Zimmerman's legal team has responded.
I would argue that there is an elephant in the room, but it isn't Race. In sharp contrast to the Howard Beach situation, about which I have blogged here before, the Sanford encounter did not take place out on a public roadway; it took place on private property.
The Crump Team has obdurately refused to recognise this inescapable fact because they realise that their spurious arguments of Racism are based on a foundation of quicksand. George Zimmerman is a Mestizo Latino - a person of mixed heritage. He is definitely not a White Man.
And all the bloviating in the
world is not going to change that.

The dark underside of the Mighty Wurlitzer Mockingbird machine has created a sulfurous crater on the edge of Biscayne Bay, erupting sporadically in malicious poisons that are destructive to the social fabric of Miami. In the latest eruption, enemies of the state who are trying to sabotage and disrupt Due Process are operating like a runaway train carrying increasingly fanciful versions of this case which depart from the facts.
"about a 2010 case of a homeless
black man beaten by a Sanford cop’s son"
The homeless black man's name was Sherman Ware. The malicious writer does not want you to know that because she doesn't want you to be able to research that situation yourself and make up your own mind.
This is, sadly, what The Miami Herald has come to: an institution whose main purpose is to hide the truth and replace it with dodgy propaganda.
