Possibly, but it was more likely the furtive actions he was making than his skin color.

You bought into the 'furtive' assessment?

When Zimmerman cruises the hood looking at peoples houses it's not furtive, but when Martin walks around looking it's furtive?

fur·tive/'f?rtiv/
Adjective:
1.Attempting to avoid notice or attention, typically because of guilt or a belief that discovery would lead to trouble; secretive.
2.Suggestive of guilty nervousness


Furtive? What was he doing that was furtive? Walking and looking around with a beverage, talking on the cellphone is furtive? Or was it getting nervous when realizinng he was being followed in the dark? Was that furtive?
