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.

I've seen the phenomenon on many occasions, but I don't see any evidence here that suggests it is the case in this instance.

A black friend claims that Zimmerman is not a racist. If he is actually a close friend, he probably knows better than you or I, given that his information is experiential and first hand, whereas you and I are at the mercy of the latest sensationalist "fact" to emerge from the media.
