Blacks who support George Zimmerman

joe oliver 2An African American coming out in favor of accused murderer George Zimmerman is practically tantamount to political and career suicide, which is why so few blacks have publicly thrown their support behind the volunteer neighborhood watchman who admittedly shot and killed Trayvon Martin in February 2012 in Sanford, Fla.

Even white celebrities and dignitaries who believe Zimmerman is innocent, sans the likes of Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, have not come out in support of Zimmerman in a public capacity because the inflammatory nature of this racially-tinged case could cause their words to explode in their faces.

Some blacks, however, possess the intestinal fortitude to articulate their sentiments to the media and other outlets about how they feel regarding George Zimmerman’s guilt or innocence and are not worried about the ramifications.

Take a look at the blacks who support George Zimmerman.
