Black friend defends shooter of Florida teen. “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.

However, it is not relevant to whether or not Zimmerman is guilty or innocent of murder.

Or, frankly, to whether or not Zimmerman'sactions were motivated by racism.
