    If you don't know what went on then it didn't happen?

    I watched plenty. Zimmerman was always portrayed as a light skinned hispanic in my circles. Then again...I wasn't watching FauxNews...which was probably, true to form, trying to make it a black v. white, liberal v. conservative political issue.

    Denial is not a defense or position

    Actually it was the New York Times who referred to Zimmerman as a "White Hispanic". You actually should begin watching Fox News if you want a broader view of what's going on in the world. MSNBC shouldn't be your only source.

    We don't need any pesky immigrants coming over to this country. I mean, it was good enough for our parents, grandparents and great grandparents, but not anymore! Borders are closed!
