Racism these days is all about hiding in plain sight. Everyone seems to agree that racism exists, but no one admits to being one. Not even the guy who killed a young innocent black man just because he looked like he didn't belong in a gated community. George Zimmerman told Fox News, "I'm not a racist."
George, if you don't want to look like a racist, don't give exclusive interviews with Fox News. And don't say you have no regrets and that it was God's plan to murder Trayvon. Oh, and don't brag about the white supremacists who supported you in prison.
In an interview with Fox New's Sean Hannity, George Zimmerman, the man who killed black teenager Treyvon Matrin, said he has no regrets about the killing. A statement from his family reaffirmed this, saying:
"George Zimmerman said that he does not regret getting out of his vehicle, he does not regret following Trayvon, in fact he does not regret anything he did that night. He wouldn't do anything different and he concluded it was God's plan."
Zimmerman gave the interview to Fox News in hopes of shoring up some donations to help fund his high-profile case. But it might backfire. What he told Hannity and what he told police the night of the killing are two different things:
"At the time, Zimmerman told the police dispatcher by phone that Martin was running away from him. But in Wednesday night’s interview, he said that Martin was “skipping, going away quickly. He wasn’t running out of fear."
