But even race’s role in the case became a matter of a debate. One of Mr. Zimmerman’s lawyers, Mark O’Mara, said he also thought the outcome would have been different if his client were black â€” but for reasons entirely different from those suggested by people like Mr. Fard.
“He never would have been charged with a crime,” Mr. O’Mara said.
“This became a focus for a civil rights event, which again is a wonderful event to have,” he said. “But they decided that George Zimmerman would be the person who they were to blame and sort of use as the creation of a civil rights violation, none of which was borne out by the facts. The facts that night were not borne out that he acted in a racial way.”
Right. Nothing in what Zimmerman said indicated any sort of racial profiling???. These people really do think we are stupid.
