George Zimmerman could have been me 8 years ago. Today I wear a red shirt, sport similar facial hair and conceal carry in his honor. You might ask, "How can you associate yourself with someone who at best made a stupid decision to confront a potential criminal and at worst committed manslaughter or the likes thereof?" To that I would say, why does President Barack Obama associate himself with Trayvon by saying "Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago"? He is associating himself with someone who at best was a racist against whites (Trayvon called Zimmerman a "cracka") and at worst an attempted murderer? Why does he associate himself with this person who he doesn't even know? Why is he trying to divide the people over race? This is my protest.
If protestors in favor of Trayvon can wear hoodies, then I can wear a red shirt!....Stand with Zimmerman!!!!
Justice for Zimmerman!
I encourage everyone some time in the next week to wear a red shirt or the like as a protest to Obama's rhetoric.....
Stay out of the Crypts area! Our "Justice for Travyon" at the City Hall here in Mexifornia double in size yesterday for about an hour! Instead of 1 guy at the table there were two!
Your tag line needs to change from Justice for Zimmerman as he received Justice! Maybe go with "Stop the Persecution of Zimmerman!"
Question: Didn't Zimmerman have a hoodie on or was it just a sweatshirt or jacket?

Since I happened to pick a red shirt this morning anyway, I'll join you.

Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul.

a) Likening himself to Trayvon who he knows nothing about -- ONLY because of them having the same skin color
b) Racially dividing the country by trying to make the Zimmerman case be about race when it has nothing to do with race.
To clarify further, I think Zimmerman was stupid for getting out of his car. And I don't even know for sure what happened that day. Only Zimmerman knows. However, as a form of protest of Obama pretending to know everything about Trayvon, I have chosen to identify myself with Zimmerman. Why? Because if Obama can identify himself to someone who he knows nothing about then I can identify myself with someone I know nothing about. The president is trying to cause racial division by identifying himself with Trayvon merely because they both have the same color of skin.
To much emotion based crap going on with this whole thing. I will continue to do what I always do....Support the ones I love...
