Preach!I will say you are probably being too optimistic. I see a lot of people of color with your way of looking at it.. I used to be one of those people. Always trying to see .."another way" to it with these heathens. And as I've aged and really opened my eyes to these damn heathen ways.. I know the real deal. And for me.. they aren't slick. Not falling for the okie doke.And see I don't think it is because even white folks can see through this tomfoolery, or am I being naive. Maybe I need to watch FoxNews instead of MSNBC all the time. And if he is Hispanic, the dumbass, FoxNews types will be the first to disown his ass--and try to send him back. To where I don't know.
It's very relevant IMO. A lot of people in this country (USA) do not think "white person" when they hear the term "Hispanic". If they can say he's "Hispanic" (think Rosie Perez, Zoe Saldana, George Lopez..folks that are Hispanic but don't look "white").. it can take the "sting" out of it some.. they can easily say it's not really a "hate crime" per se since they are both minorities.
It will be down played. That seems rather nuts because clearly being a minority doesn't mean this didn't have anything to do with racism or prejudice but this is OFTEN the hand that certain (not all) white folks play in these situations and I hate to say this but minorities often just accept it. It's being stated all over ..how this guy is Hispanic and not white so there is no real hate crime involved.
Furthermore, his father (Robert Zimmerman) knew what was up from the get go..this is why he was QUICK to point out that his son is "Hispanic and grew up in a MULTICULTURAL home". If his being whatever he is wasn't any issue..there would have been no need to break their (the police and his dad) necks to make it seem like it wasn't any racial issue going on at all.
I'm not trying to be disrespectful, racist, or prejudice but these white folks aren't about to pull the wool over my eyes on this one..sorry Charlie.
Just like this bull:
‚€˜Don‚€™t Re-Nig,‚€™ the racist anti-Obama bumper sticker, appears real | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News
I hear white folks claiming it's not what black people think it is.. it just means not to re-nig on the idea of taking the country back during the 2012 election is all..that it is not calling Obama the "n-word"...um yeah okay. Certain folks wanna believe that go head on..but I know better. And I can give TONS of examples just like that where certain white folks use trickery and word-play to fool folks..and plenty of folks just accept it.

And I watch Fox News, I listen to Rush and Sean Hannity. And I read up on what the hell Ann Coulter's (something I can't say here) azz is up to..I pay attention to them and what they say very closely. MSNBC .. I watch it but when I want the real nitty gritty of what these (something I can't say here) are up to.. in my opinion it's best to go to the damn source. Cause MSNBC does to much pu**yfooting around for me. I know this is horrible to say but I get sick and tired of these damn Conservatives getting away with this ish while Liberals talking all around an issue instead of calling these heathens exactly what the hell they are.. let me stop. Cause..just SMDH.
