In the aftermath of the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the death of the unarmed black teenager, Trayvon Martin, Robert Zimmerman Jr. in a post-verdict interview said Trayvon Martin was “… armed with a sidewalk.” Really?
Sidewalks according to Robert Zimmerman Jr. are weapons. I thought they were paved walkways along streets for walking on. I imagine Trayvon was walking on a sidewalk before George Zimmerman got out of his car and began to follow him. By that logic then, anytime a black person is on a sidewalk, they are to be considered armed and by extension dangerous.
It is a sad day in America when blacks are not able to walk on sidewalks without being profiled, criminalized and killed!
