“skin color is what aroused George Zimmerman’s suspicions”
Those of you who actually have followed the evidence in the Zimmerman case, both before and during trial, know that every aspect of the racial narrative put forth by the Martin family attorneys, Al Sharpton, other agitators, and the media, has either been debunked explicitly or has nothing other than conjecture behind it.
NBC famously doctored the 911 tape to falsely present Zimmerman as suspicious of Martin’s race, but that was debunked. There were claims that Zimmerman muttered the word “coon” under his breath, but that was debunked even by the prosecution’s own audio experts. Zimmerman had no history of racial antagonism and much history of just the opposite, and himself was multiracial.
Yet that has not stopped Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC — who once disputed Zimmerman had a bloody nose — from continuing to claim otherwise.
On July 23, 2013, after the verdict, O’Donnell responded to comments by Bill O’Reilly by making the following statement:
“There was plenty of evidence that Trayvon Martin’s skin color is what aroused George Zimmerman’s suspicions of him,” O’Donnell said. “It was indeed Trayvon Martin’s skin color that made him – in O’Reilly’s words – ‘a stranger to Zimmerman.’”
Just more cheapening of the public discourse at MSNBC.
