George Zimmerman’s father Robert recently released an e-book called “Florida v. Zimmerman: Uncovering the Malicious Prosecution of my Son, George.”
In it, he rails against various aspects of his son’s legal woes.
In one of the chapters – “Who Are the True Racists” – Zimmerman says that the “true racists” are a variety of African Americans; namely, specific individuals and organizations that have expressed support for Trayvon Martin’s family.
Think Progress took the liberty of posting Zimmerman’s list of racists:
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.”
The National Basketball Players Association.
Black Chamber of Commerce.
National Association of Black Law Enforcement Officers.
National Black United Fund.
United Negro College Fund.
