“George Zimmerman is not a racist and cried for days after shooting dead a black Florida teenager," a black, longtime friend of Zimmerman said on Sunday in a sympathetic portrayal of a man maligned by critics as a trigger-happy bigot.
There's no reason to doubt the truth of this statement.
You're discounting that some people are selective racists.
Grandparents who dote over their black/white granchild, yet harbor racist sentiments against other black people.
How many times have you heard people claim, "but I have a colored friend" or "some of my friends are jewish," and it turns your stomach because you know the person is a flippin' racist.
