In the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin murder case, there have been right-wing commentators who have tried to edit out the racial aspect of the 'not guilty' verdict. It was simply a matter of law they say, in fact those who focus on the race of Zimmerman and Martin are the true racists as they ignore black-on-black crime. However those commentators will have to explain for me why, according to the below article and graph, the 'stand your ground' defense only seems to work in 'White on Black' homicides:
Zimmerman Was Innocent Until Proven Guilty. Trayvon, Like All Black Men, Was Not.
In a case of terrible poetic injustice, it was the principle of 'innocent until proven guilty' that allowed George Zimmerman to go home to his family - the very same principle he denied Trayvon Martin. The truth is, in America, all black men are guilty until proven innocent.
