I am certainly not defending Zimmerman's continued actions that resulted in his killing Martin. I am saying that it is only hateful racism that causes some to continue to try to claim that Zimmerman's actions were racist just because Martin happened to be of the same ethnicity that those who have been causing problems in the neighborhood are.
In other words; the real racists are those who continue to do everything they can to spew out hateful claims about etnic profiling when the only reason for the profiling was to identify the more probable suspects for wrong doing.
If those of you who want to continue to divide Americans by ethnicity were really interested in doing any good, you would be attacking the actions of the Black youth who created the mistrust about Black youths. In that respect, Martin also contributed to that stigma with his own past actions.
If some overweight aging White guy robs a store and I am questioned by the police for the robbery, is that racial profiling? Should I get my panties all in a wad over being suspected for something I did not do? Of course not. If anything, I'm going to be ticked off at the SOB who committed the crime and implemented me because I physically resemble him.
I've been on the wrong side of profiling, mostly in my youth. As a skinny, long haired hippy type, I was often pulled over because of my appearance alone. I had one incident where I was forced into a vehicle trap of police squad cars while driving home from work. One cop pulled up behind me while I was on an exit ramp coming off of the Baltimore beltway, so, knowing I was doing nothing wrong, I sped up to get out of his way. When we got to the two lane road off of the ramp, the cop stayed on my tail and two other cop cars coming from the opposite direction crossed the median to pin me in to a stop. After searching me and my vehicle, the cops claimed there had been a crime commited with a vehicle resembling mine. I was driving a custom built VW painted AMC's Big Bad Green (a very bright, darker lime green) that had a custom flowered cloth sun roof that matched the custom flowered upholstery (all of my own doing), L80 wide tires on chromed Chevy reversed rims....that was a match for some other vehicle! Yeah...right!
The point is that profiling is a way of life and we need to get leftists off of their continual hate mongering of making claims that everything we do is racist. Oh, two of the cops in the above story were White guys and one was a Black guy, so I'm sure I was racially profiled unjustly.
