During George Zimmerman’s case, which culminated in a not guilty verdict on Saturday, it felt like Trayvon Martin was on trial for being black, young and male. Pictures and video which revealed that this slain child wore grills, once flashed his middle finger and laughed at a fight were plastered across media sites in attempt to vilify him even in death. Despite the fact that Trayvon Martin was an A/B student and had no criminal record, his past was still dissected and pictures and video were manipulated to make him appear like a wayward thug. On the other hand, George Zimmerman’s past — which includes a domestic violence charge, being accused of fighting with the police and most recently, child molestation allegations — has flown under mainstream media’s radar for the most part. Until now.

The Huffington Post reports:

A woman with close ties to George Zimmerman and his family told investigators that members of Zimmerman’s family were boastfully proud racists and that for more than a decade Zimmerman sexually molested her.

The woman, who George Zimmerman’s lawyers identified as a cousin, told investigators in an interview on March 20th, that the abuse started when she was six:

“We’d all lay in front of the TV and we had pillows and blankets and he would reach under the blankets and try to do things and I would try to push him off but he was bigger and stronger and older. It was in front of everybody and I don’t know how I didn’t say anything, I just didn’t know any better.”

She also revealed that the Zimmerman family was boastfully racist:

“I was afraid that he may have done something because the kid was black,” the woman, identified as witness 9, told investigators. “Because growing up they’ve always made, him and his family have always made statements that they don’t like black people if they don’t act like white people. They like black people if they act white and other than that, they talk a lot of bad things about black people.”

Mark O’Mara, Zimmerman’s defense attorney, claimed that her statements were irrelevant and shouldn’t be referenced at trial. He also said her comments about the racist Zimmerman family could potentially cause “widespread hostile publicity.” Like the kind they tried to drum up against Trayvon Martin?

    My thoughts are ANYBODY who think Zimmerman is justified in what he did ARE RACIST THEMSLEVES and I’m not taking it back. That CHILD was FOLLOWED, regardless of the CHILDS back ground. Zimmerman IS AND WILL NEVER BE A POLICE OFFICER as he want to be so badly. I knew a person who wanted to be a police officer and would pull people over and steal government tags and actually tell people he was a Sherriff. He got put in jail for it. Something is wrong with people who are racist and who have mental issues as Zimmerman. And I am not at all surprised about him being racists. I see suspicious people all of the time and I would just CALL THE POLICE WITHOUT FOLLOWING. I give a very good description, I am NOT going to put myself in harms way if this person turns out to be harmless. That CHILD dresses just like my young men do. If you were going to do something to harm someone then why would you go to the store(cameras everywhere) and buy food knowing you are about to do something wrong, I mean really. You are eating skittles while robbing somebody…sigh.
