Juror B37 who served on George Zimmerman’s murder trial, spoke with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Her interviewed offered insight on how preconceived notions can lead to unconscious racism.
During the interview she said, “George Zimmerman feared for his life”; “George Zimmerman is a man whose heart was in the right place”: and “I feel sorry for George because of the situation he got himself in.”
Unfortunately, it proved that Juror B37 and others actually felt more empathy for the killer than the black child who was murdered.
Moreover, B37’s racist attitudes were made clear during her pre-trial interview when she called Trayvon Martin “a boy of color.”
