I wonder where Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are? Shouldn't they be all over the news saying how this is racist? Oops, I forgot this was two black guys beating a white guy. That's ok, nothing to see here. Keep moving.

Jackson & Sharpton are hypocrits & can't expect much from them. They are ok with a white person getting beat up by a black person. I consider Zimmerman more hispanic than white but from the beginning, he was called a white person.

Jackson and Sharpton are Professional Racists,that is how they make their living.
Without racism,they would have to get a real job,and lose their perks and privileges,they would become NOBODIES.
So,it's in their interest to fan the flames of racism.

We hear the Left scream all the time about hate crimes and also inflammatory rhetoric needing to be toned down, but have they ever thought about what effect the Trayvon Martin buzz is having in this regard?

It cost at least one guy a beating in Chicago, according to his attacker and this local news station report:

"Alton L. Hayes III, a west suburban man charged with a hate crime, told police he was so upset about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida that he beat up a white man early Tuesday.
