The basic premise for a federal “hate crime” charge against George Zimmerman would be proof that the reason for his approaching Trayvon Martin was specifically and intentionally due to his race. However, how can a black male, which, by definition George Zimmerman is, be charged with a race crime against another black male?
If President Obama is black then George Zimmerman is black.
George Zimmerman’s Grandparents were black, his mother was black, and there is multiple racial ancestry within his family. So does Eric Holder actually propose to be the first Attorney General in the history of Hate Crime Legislation who is going to charge a hate crime regardless of ethnicity, when the very definition of “hate crime” is dependent on ethnicity? If so, there are a bunch of Chicago murders now eligible for Federal Hate Crime legislation. This is ridiculous. Implausible, insufferable, and ridiculous.SANFORD, Fla. — WFTV has learned charges against George Zimmerman could be getting more serious.
