I’m an ardent supporter of my friend George Zimmerman and I have no apologies about it. George’s image has been warped by the media, and he’s been wrongly portrayed as a racist, a bigot, someone who doesn’t treat women properly, and someone who is reckless.
None of these characterizations are remotely true. George is a good friend, a humble man, and a man of faith. George is not Jewish; he is (and has always been) Catholic.
Of course, the media loves race cases. Why is this? Because they sell. So it pays — literally — to portray George as a racist. The truth of the matter is that the mainstream media is racist and they’re profiting from it.
