I was George Zimmerman

Good Article by someone who faced the same violent youths like Trayvon, and that years ago.


"President Obama can't stop comparing himself, or the son he never
had, to Trayvon Martin. And he can't stop talking about race. Everything
in Obama's world is black and white. This is not America's first "post
racial-president." This is America's first "all race, all the time
president."

I see the Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case very differently. For me it
was never about black or white. It was always about life or death -- for
George Zimmerman. You see, thirty-six years ago I was George Zimmerman.
Thirty-six years ago I almost died in a life or death struggle eerily
similar to George Zimmerman's confrontation. Let me tell you the story....."
