Asked to describe George Zimmerman in one word, prosecutor Angela Corey said simply, “murderer.”
People like Corey who refuse to accept that the case is finished are vindicated by the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice. The DOJ, at the urging of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and other civil rights groups, may launch a Federal civil rights investigation against Zimmerman in a bid to charge him with a hate crime.
There are, however, some people in the Nation that think it is time to move on.
Dr. Alveda King, niece of civil rights icon Martin Luther King, told Newsmax that the NAACP and other groups calling for further prosecution of Zimmerman are involved in shameless race-baiting.
“It is not helpful to race-bait,” Dr. Alveda King told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.
“[The] NAACP and all of the organizations … We need to wonder why they’re doing that, what kind of checks and money they’re getting behind the scenes to stir us up into racial anarchy.
“We should be speaking nonviolence, justice, peace, and love as Trayvon’s parents are doing, by the way. So we need to ask why they’re race baiting, because they are.”
During the interview, King also noted that, despite mainstream media’s insistence to the contrary, this is not a white people/black people issue.
“There’s no black race, white race, yellow race and red race,” King told Malzberg.
“The other thing is, Mr. Zimmerman is not a Caucasian. He’s a Hispanic. The media is somehow forgetting that, so [there are] all of these nuances, all of the race-baiting, all of the pain.”
