Not Guilty By Reason Of Ignorance
I honestly believe if George Zimmerman would have been Black, the murder of a Black man by another Black man would have never made the news. The jury who found George Zimmerman not guilty was the least of the ignorance that played a part in this misguided practice of justice.
