George Zimmmerman will never be safe from the racists. After the verdict I looked for threatening pictures of Trayvon Martin. I spent about an hour going through as many pictures as i could find. All I saw was a sad, scared kid. But this sad,scared kid was also doing "Lean," and had the makings in his pockets on the way home. He was also practicing streetfighting, and getting good at it. And he was clearly a young racist. What we need to do is look for the red flags and call them out. Inaccuracies in reporting. Using the young pic of Martin and the jail pic of Zimmerman, for example. Or using the first name of the "child" and the last name of the "murderer." Infantilizing Martin/distorting Zimmerman. Any mention of race, black, white, or hispanic is a red flag. That's how grownups dialogue. I was recently called a "monster" because I suggested that Martin lost his stand your ground claim when he returned to assault Martin. Instead of refuting my claim, the other person simply ended in an emotional attack and a namecalling flourish. Please, let's avoid that.
