    because he shot a black youth he is referred to as "white" if he had won the nobel peace prize he would no doubt be referred to as "hispanic"

    If Zimmerman is "white" then so is Obama.

    It won't make a difference if he's found guilty! He'll be in stripes

    what do you think the chances of actually b able to go to trial are? with the size of the bounty put forth by black panther members I would be shocked if it did.

    I don't think I've ever heard the term "white Hispanic" my entire life.

    Well, if he doesn't go to jail he'd better learn to pick fruit or work a shovel, future employment prospects will probably be slim, unless he gets a book/film deal.

    Volunteer work, like being Captain of his neighborhood watch, is probably done too. :whistling:

    A century ago, Italians, Irish, Russian Jews, and many others were not considered "white" if they came to America. Now they are. If a grandson of four Italians is considered "white", then it is odd that a grandson of four Hispanics is NOT considered white.

    I believe they are white on the census form... Of course there are 3-4 checkboxes for different types of hispanics...

    Welcome to the White table here at Whiteland, Whitey. Like Louis C.K. (a "white" Mexican Jewish American comic with dual citizenship) says it is pretty awesome...

    ...until the racialist media politically perpetuating the status quo of a race structured society brings a world of hurt down on your butt supporting racism while trying not be racist.

    He is white for the purposes of Sharpton and Jackson and the others wanting to gain from this incident.

    This but I am almost sure that is racist. It is about skin color not reality.

    The current beat on the net is that Zimmerman's father formally adopted him after marrying the mom; the biological father was also Hispanic. The name change was part of the adoption.

    My conjecture on the progress of events: The shooting was over a month ago; this situation became big on the news in the last 14 days. The "researchers" looking for a hot-button cause to push probably did a really quick survey, saw the initial gossip on the circumstances of the shooting, saw those photos of the deceased as a 13-year-old, and, most importantly, saw a "caucasian" name associated with the shooter. The odds looked good for making this a "cause", and the cause was pushed. Now reality seems to be playing catch-up ball in the late innings; new pictures available of the deceased, comprehensive release of testimony, and realization that two steady left-wing political constituencies may end up at each other's throats as we approach a major election.
