    There are far too many facts here for RJ liberals to comprehend, so I urge them to go read one of those "guy above you" topics.

    Below are a few of the media distortions in the Zimmerman case:

    Zimmerman claims self-defense. After an investigation, the police agree and decide not to press charges.

    Sharpton saidFirstly, Zimmerman is white though.
    Secondly, its not like the conservatives were angels either. How hard these people rode for a guy they knew nothing about and originally called "white".


    He's white?

    I'm talking about the (allegedly impartial) media. Not liberals or conservatives, Democrats or Republicans.

    Is this the same media that happily put out the O'Mara jury tainting pictures of Trayvon trying to portray the dead kid as a marijuana crazed street thug?

    Or is that a different media?

    Erhmmm...it's a very blurry line. That's what on forms with race there is another box for Non-Hispanic.

    He's described as Hispanic. Now then, Southbeach, you might want to go ask one of your Conservative friends on RJ who is also Hispanic why he puts white in his profile. I did some time ago.
    Have fun!

    As a Florida resident I can assure you that Zimmerman is Latino, he considers himself Latino and Florida residents (aside from easily confused liberals) view him as Latino.

    one comment that Michael Skolnik ( treyvon tv talking head) said that particularly bothered me is that Zimmerman was "technically hispanic".

    What the hell does that mean? I think we have a right to self identify with whatever label we want and not

    Latino isn't a race merely a compilation of different mestizo ethnicities.
    Are you actually re-writing other people's races now?


    Zimmerman is not white and doesnt define himself that way.

    what bothers me is that the media was complicit in a racial whip up here.

    he has a right to call himself whatever he wants.

    What bothers me is the racial fanning of flames by NBC in its doctered 911 tape and racial instigators ( AL Sharpton)

    they weren't complicit. They deliberately pushed that narrative - which is why I hope Zimmerman wins big in his suit against NBC.

    I think both of you actually agree re: NBC.

    George Zimmerman is Jewish

    Although CNN and other media outlets continually state that George Zimmerman is a “white Hispanic neighborhood watchman”, it is simply not true. Zimmerman is a man of mixed Jewish descent who was born to a Jewish father and a Peruvian mother.

    Robert Zimmerman is Jewish

    George Zimmerman’s father is Robert Zimmerman, a retired Jewish judge in Florida. This fact obviously makes George Zimmerman Jewish. The last name of Zimmerman is a predominantly Jewish name, especially popular among Ashkenazim Jews

    As is George Zimmer

    I believe that in order for a child to be Jewish, one of the rules is that the mother must be Jewish. The religion of the father is irrelevant.

    In addition, being Jewish describes the man's religion. You are confusing religion with "racial demographics."

    Aside from that, you got it all right. icon_lol.gif

    Ok, so he's white case closed.
    Thx so much scruff.



    Huh? Did you read what I just wrote?

    "ScruffyLA" based his entire "case" on incorrect information: That having a Jewish father makes the child Jewish.

    In addition, if you are Jewish it doesn't mean you are white.

    I just did.

    Based on reality, there is a high chance that his mother is Jewish as well.

    Yes it does, unless you are biracial.


    There is no evidence whatsoever to indicate that his mother is Jewish.

    In addition, Jews are not just white or "biracial."

    The level of ignorance on here is astounding.

    One does not have to be practicing in order to have ethic generational lines such as jewish, One would only identify as being jewish if one were practicing its religion,

    I am Polish, German, Jewish and Irish, I most closely identify with Polish but I am not any religion associated with these racial make ups, namely, Catholic or Judaism.

    So I am just white caucasian, if the Zimmerman family practice Judaism (which we don't know yet) then their racial make up is Jewish, either way, they are Caucasian, being, Peruvian doesn't mean everyone from Peru is latin or latin heritage, many in south american are of caucasian race

    Repeating it over and over and over and over doesn't make it true.

    You will however win the argument here on RJ because of all the impressionable liberals on this site.

    I already said I give up. Zimmerman is clearly white, he is clearly a bona-fide Jew, he is clearly a racist, there is an overabundance of evidence that he shot the black kid in the back when the black kid was running away from him, the jurors are all married to members of the KKK which is why Zimmerman was found not guilty.

    Did I miss anything?

    Don't know if it was mentioned, but Zimmerman identified as "White" on a form that was evidence in court, I believe it was a medical form. Besides, Hispanic isn't a race, it's an ethnicity and it appears separately from race on most forms these days. A person can be White and Hispanic, Black and Hispanic, etc. In short, Zimmerman really was called what he identifies as, White.
