"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Possibly if his parents weren't such racists themselves this would not have happened. Neo-naizis weren't protecting Zimmerman when Trayvon decided to beat Zimmerman to death because Trayvon is a racist. It is unfortunate too many African-Americans try to instill race-hartred in the next generation of African-Americans.

I am not so sure black families NEED to teach race hate, there are so many non blacks quite willing to teach it to anyone they can, either on Papa's knee or at the end of a baton. It is to the point I barely blink when some guy 'explains' blacks to me generally using the 'N' word. Though more and more these days 'mud people' get drug into the 'lessons'.
I suppose it is easy to just say race hate as if it sits in a man's craw like a parasite, but most folks I know do a very good job of suppressing it until push comes to shove under stress.
Problem with a lot of race hate is it comes with a long history we seem to overlook. I don't recall blacks enslaving whites, using Jim Crow laws for a century after the War of Northern Aggression to enforce a superiority of the white race over the blacks.
But then again it is easy to type anything online. Trayvon was a racist and Zimmerman a poor victim.
We will see how it all settles out, if anyone has a crystal ball and can predict the future, I'd rather have winning lottery numbers instead.
If anyone can see a few clips online and decide what was in a dead man's soul, please share.
But mostly it is guessing and biased opinion.
I'm disgusted by how the OP was treated. Both white and black racists imo need to have their claims ignored. We should pay attention to the threats and other actions of both groups. To top this all off, there's not even any evidence that the Neo-Nazis were there; so, what now?
