I'm pretty sure that is the case. Zimmerman had the opinion that Treyvon was a troublemaker. He targeted him I think.
My very own Neighborhood watch stalked me a couple times while I was taking a nightly walk. They approached me 2 different times(in a vehicle) asked what I was up to. They were very polite, as was I. After both encounters I wasn't angered by the approach, but relieved they were patroling the neighborhood.

I'm with you on most of this, but while I don't think racism was the main or only factor in this shooting, I think it probably played a part, and I'm by no means the only one saying that. Geraldo himself says that the hoodie the kid was wearing was as big a factor as the gun, which brings up the question of whether it's JUST hoodie shirts in general, of if it's something specific about black kids in hoodies.

Geraldo is an idiot. Listening to Zimmerman's 911 call he did not bring up that fact that MArtin was black, or wearing a hoody until the 911 operator aksed Zimmerman for a discription. The whole hoody thing is bullshit.

I'm not saying that Zimmerman is an innocent man, but I don't think for a moment that he is the person some are trying to paint him. Nor to I think Martin is the person some are portraying him.

I do not fear God, I fear the ignorance of man.
