Majority of Whites Agree With Zimmerman "Not Guilty" Verdict, Blacks and Hispanics Don't

Categories: Survey Says

Further illustrating the racial divide in response to the death of Trayvon Martin and the trial of his killer, George Zimmerman, a new ABC News/Washington Post poll has found that while the majority of non-Hispanic white people agree with the not-guilty verdict the jury handed down to Zimmerman, the majority of blacks and Hispanics disagree with the outcome.

It's interesting to note that while Zimmerman himself identifies as Hispanic, Hispanics disagreed with the jury at a rate of about two-to-one. Though, they also responded that they had no opinion at a higher rate than the other groups.

Whites, however, were divided equally as to whether the shooting was justified.

Somewhat surprisingly, more than any other group, Hispanics were willing to agree that the Department of Justice should charge Zimmerman with violating Martin's civil rights. Whites, however, were more adamant as a group that the DOJ should stay out of the case.

NAAWP RESPONSE: BLACK PEOPLE are much more RACIST than WHITE PEOPLE!

BLACK MEN RAPED 33,000 WHITE WOMEN IN 2012

WHITE MEN RAPED 8 BLACK WOMEN IN 2012!

BLACK PEOPLE MURDERED 1,600 WHITE PEOPLE in 2012

WHITE PEOPLE MURDER 27 BLACK PEOPLE IN 2012

BLACK PEOPLE ROBBED APPROXIMATELY 1.4 MILLION WHITE PEOPLE IN 2012

WHITE PEOPLE ROBBED LESS THAN 100 BLACK PEOPLE IN 2012

BASED on those U.S. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT STATISTICS it's really easy to IDENTIFY the REAL TROUBLE MAKERS in AMERICAN SOCIETY!

SPECIFICALLY, "YOUNG BLACK MEN and YOUNG BLACK WOMEN"

GUESS WHAT  "YOUNG BLACK MEN and YOUNG BLACK WOMEN" are also the REAL TROUBLE MAKERS in ENGLAND, FRANCE, GERMANY and SPAIN!

REACTION.................VIEWS.................CHARGE........................

these words MEAN to measure a tally of AFTER the EVENT.......... he said she said stuff which can be ENDlessly debated forever

the real question IS:   how do we ALL agree to prevent it ? what HAS to change to effectively reconcile BOTH sides ?

I don't get the "He is Hispanic" argument. I'm Hispanic also. News Flash...Hispanic are and can be just as racist as anyone. So stop saying he is hispanic like he is immune to hating or disliking other races.

we should have new signs, instead of "I am GM" or "I am TM" we'll have something like "I am someone other than Zimmerman or Martin so I'm gonna at least attempt to stfu about this issue, regardless of my own race" or something... iono, take that with a grain of salt

@Joe LaDuca: Re: "How much longer can they milk this?" I'm gonna say.. for however long we let them. Like we're doing now. Even those of us who are right.. Like I want to (and do) say to people "Look, we don't for a fact, but it seems a near certainty that the jury made the correct choice, BUUUT, it's not because of racism, and I don't want to be your enemy by arguing over this, thus letting them win at dividing and distracting us.. but I still kinda feel the need to convince you that you're wrong for some reason, I admit it.." So in other words, I'm being, at this very moment, in my opinion, just as guilty as the race-baited side is in allowing this terrible aftermath to continue by participating in it... I'm sorry. *facepalm*

How many white parents would be outraged if a grown black man and self appointed neighborhood watch man had profiled their child and began following their child who was doing nothing more than returning home from the store after buying candy for a younger sibling. Whose child wouldn't be frightened by a stranger, a grown man stalking them tries to stop them and question them for no reason, doesn't identify himself, what frightened teen would try to lash out try to protect himself from an aggressive stranger.Suppose Martin had a gun--he would have been well within his rights to protect himself when he realized this strange man (Zimmerman) was following him around for no reason that he could see, other than to possibly rob him or kidnapped/rape him.When an armed man can hunt down an unarmed teenager while on the telephone with a 911 dispatcher, kill the teen, and then walk away free, I think it’s fair to assume that there’s a serious problem with justice in the jurisdiction where the event took place.

Trayvon was the "prey" for George on that evening - and George walked. The problem is not confined to the jurisdiction of Sanford.  its all over the country but is for now anyway a purely minority position. Most of us know murder when we hear about it.

I am white, and my white friends and I disagree with the verdict, so do my hispanic and black friends. In our world, this is a bully issue, not race issue.

the proper CHARGE was MANSLAUGHTER,  however as the STAND YOUR GROUND LAW applies,  the proper GUILTY verdict would have been vacated,  and the results would have been what they are today anyhow - zimmerman walks

NO ONE is to be judge, jury, executioner, and sole author of the one-sided story WITHOUT question or contention under proper examination of the facts

also and unfortunately the prosecution was OUT-LAWYERed = period

(maybe the idea by the STATE was set such an inappropriate charge of second-degree murder so the BLAME would go to the jury and judicial system upon acquittal and it wouldn't be so obvious that the STATE was throwing the case)

in the olde south the prosecutors were a mere formality, as the judge was in the pocket of the good olde boys, so BLACKs got convicted and WHITEs walked ( and just in case one of them WHITEs would get convicted by error the STATE governor would commute the sentence anyhow )  - not much has since changed here in cracker central ("his HEART was in the right place" tells me all i need to know about that !)

so instead of bribed WHITE judges juries and Governors acquitting WHITEs and convicting BLACKs instead we have STAND YOUR GROUND laws enacted by legislators who are bought and paid for by the N R A

I can't understand how they come to this conclusion, unless they ignored the facts in the case. (and only listen to the media, and race protagonists  Al and Jessie, et al.  )

and TODAY as my child has grown to a young woman SHE has been trained and has her concealed weapons permit and does carry and can DEFEND herself as her POLICE ASSISTED training has PREPARED HER if need be

education + PREPARATION + dilligence = a rounded positive member of civilized society

ALL the other issues stem from a disintegration in BLACK family structure which is NOT the resposibility of anyone else EXCEPT the PARENTs = period

...............................MORE "PREY"

Shaaliver Dousen - 14 year old BLACK youth was shot and KILLED by NYPD at 3am this past weekend

so i guess now you can add those two police men with GEORGE as who are to blame for ALL the problems of BLACK youth who roam UNsupervised by their PARENTs

funny how the BLACK kids i grew up with that i know had concerned supervising and mindful PARENTs never got shot or were taken as "PREY" and many if not all are today contributing positive members of civilized society known in their communities as roll models for others

GEORGE would have never known trayvon had trayvon had real PARENTs and ALL these other side issues wouldn't have happened = period

Am I the only one who thinks Florida will soon have a new governor?


Scott is as much of a coward as George Zimmerman. Scott has been paid off by the NRA,  Koch Brothers, -ALEC and so has the FL legislature which is composed of a Republican super majority.So, let me get this straight! End abortion in the state because it's saving children, but allow stand your ground laws to "stand" as they are because it kills children?

aasdf,

i would offer that once people are disenfranchised their realities become so distorted that they are subject to falling into such dispair that they become their own worse enemies

in the unavoidable realm of PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION i have personally witnessed daily riders trash a bus and the terminal and the stops and then later wonder why such filty and smell and flies and roaches bedevil them when they use these same vehicles and facilities the next day - who shits where they eat , right ?

but there it is purely a BLACK creation because no WHITE or HISPANIC people are to blame for such trash and filth YET somehow they divorce themselves from being the genesis of the problem in irrational and illogical THINKing that defies reality

otherwise - no - i don't understand it either

George Zimmerman Proves Latinos Can Be Racist

George Zimmerman used his 2005 MySpace page to spread derogatory stereotypes about Mexicans

“I dont miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of the street, soft as wanna be th ugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin) dont make you a man in my book,” the 2005 Myspace page said. “Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into

@HarryTheHandyman since dark skinned hispanics can look like black people, and white skinned hispanics can look like white people, each of those groups needed a way to separate themselves from "non-white" and "non-black" hispanics.

@drakemallard @frankd4 

well J E B ! may make a comeback so i wouldn't consider HIM "new", maybe previously used with LOW MILEAGE

otherwise the person who is the governor really doesn't matter and we have been getting along okay with NO LT GOV since last year - no ?

the N R A has paid off everyone who is somebody so all those bases are covered

yeah the abortion thing is its mandatory for the STATE to tell women to have children and will pay ANY PRICE to enact anti-abortionism yet the STATE then turns around and cuts ALL funding for education and health and welfare issues (see DCF budget cuts lately) for children

the STATE wants you to have them BUT not subsidize or help support their progress once born so i guess that ensures everyone IN the criminal justice system and IN the judicial system JOB SECURITY

i don't get it

Zimmerman will fall again since the evidence that he is a criminal and has a disturbed mind and his daddy won't be able to protect him next time ...
