As George Zimmerman’s second degree murder trial begins, his father seems to be coming unhinged, writing an odd e-book which maligns African-American leaders as the “true” racists. Robert Zimmerman’s e-book, “Florida v. Zimmerman: Uncovering the Malicious Prosecution of my Son, George”, was released today for $3.99.
According to ThinkProgress, here are a few of the organizations that the elder Zimmerman believes are racist:
Congressional Black Caucus. “[A] pathetic, self-serving group of racists… advancing their purely racist agenda.” He later adds that “all members of Congress should be ashamed of the Congressional Black Caucus, as should be their constituents.” And finally: “They are truly a disgrace to all Americans.”
The NAACP. “[S]imply promotes racism and hatred for their own, primarily finical, interests” and “without prejudice and racial divide, the NAACP would simply cease to exist.”
NAACP President Benjamin Jealous. “[W]hat I would expect of a racist.”
Trayvon Martin’s funeral director. A “racial activist and former head of the local NAACP.”
Benjamin Crump, Natialie Jackson and Darrly Parks, attorneys for Travyon Martin’s family. “The scheme team.”
He then goes on to list other organizations he believes have operated will ill intent, including the United Negro College Fund and the Black Chamber of Commerce. After reading the excerpts, it’s not hard to understand why George Zimmerman profiled Trayvon Martin on that fateful night.
