NBC "reporter" lies about Trayvon Martin shooting

By Scott Tibbs, April 3, 2012

On Sunday night, NBC News "reporter" Kerry Sanders said there is continuing pressure "to charge the white man who killed a black teenager."

Sanders is a liar who should immediately be fired from his job as a "reporter" by NBC.

George Zimmerman is not white. Zimmerman is Hispanic. By falsely claiming that Zimmerman is white, Sanders is not "reporting" the "news" to NBC's viewers. He is engaging in pure race-baiting propaganda.

Why is this important? It is important because race hustlers are doing their best to exploit the death of Trayvon Martin to incite racial tensions, deliberately playing down or outright whitewashing (pun intended) Zimmerman's Hispanic heritage.

There is plenty of debate about this case and what led to the shooting, especially regarding the 6'2" teenager allegedly punching Zimmerman in the face and slamming his head against the sidewalk. Was lethal force justified in response, or did Zimmerman use excessive force? Is Zimmerman responsible for instigating the confrontation by following Martin? There has been an unfortunate rush to judgment in this case - and I have personally participated in that rush to judgment, much to my shame.

We need to wait for all of the facts to come out and ensure that true justice is truly done here. That justice might be a harsh punishment for Zimmerman... or it might be no punishment at all. It does not help anyone to have the case inflamed by race hustlers, including a lynch mob that has put a bounty on Zimmerman's head and a so-called "reporter" for a so-called "news" network that is deliberately spreading false propaganda.
