I seldom watch any trials on TV and the trial of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin is really no exception. I have caught a few blurbs on the news but not much more. I do know how people tried to mock and savage the testimony of Rachel Jeantel. Typical of white America.
Then, in the background one day last week, while I was washing dishes, I heard someone refer to Zimmerman as the victim of reverse racism. What? I went out to see how anyone came up with that concept. The news head explained to me that Trayvon had apparently referred to Zimmerman as a "creepy ass cracker," or something to that affect. I had to chuckle at that. Then I caught myself and realized they were serious. They were actually equating this to the use of the N word. They were equating this to the shooting of Treyvon by that creepy cracker. There were people actually pushing this dreadful line.
Unreal, I thought.
Then I remembered that I was in America and it was 2013 and I sighed.

Yes, George Zimmerman is in Fact a "Creepy Cracker"
