Racism isn't an illusion, race is though. Yes, racism is repugnant. Aside from a verbal interaction, I'm of the opinion Zimmerman wouldn't have done anything had Trayvon not punched him in the nose. When told by the police someone had video captured the entire event (a lie the police office said to see his response) and Zimmerman exclaimed: 'Thank God, I was hoping somebody would videotape it. Statistically young black men are more likely to be murdered by other black men, not some fat white dude. And visa-versa. Once one recognizes that the true enemy of the people is their own Government. As has been the case for millennium. Then the real story here is that black Americans are being smothered to death by a poisonous Annie Wilkes-like cloud of crippling Governmental "Services" - designed to do just that, dis-empower, weaken and cripple. There are more African Americans in prison in the USA than Africans in prison in ALL OF AFRICA. The Zimmerman's of the World are just distracting side shows to keep the people's minds and eyes off the NSA spying warmongering 1% bailing disease that has become the federal government.
