Let's hear now from two supporters of George Zimmermann the person is Anthony -- a long time friend and like Joe Oliver the second speaker and African American.
-- -- I believe the racially profile how hard it is preposterous that he had -- and -- -- with color sort sort of thing people have meted out to be.
I think it's very respectful humble and you know media has me -- Iran Libya and young weed smoking -- And then had sources being a racist vigilante who want to go out on you know just kill black people.
-- -- -- So you believe.
Joe -- friend of George Zimmermann that he is and being unjustly accused.
Here well I mean you yourself used to vigilante justice.
How do you explain the reaction to what's going on out there right now how do you explain that 101000 dollar about being on -- the information.
And what makes that balloting is no better than the vigilante they -- -- here.
Joining CL Bryant and doctor -- -- king is constitutional lawyer and best selling.
-- -- and -- bread you first that CL Bryant that we haven't heard from you on not.
The Sharpton Jackson phenomenon.
The parents of trade -- Martan.
Where shining example of grace under fire in adverse situations.
And I want to say this.
Their statements along with their attorney.
I hope does send a very strong message to those who would have turn this into a racist or racial circus.
I hope this is also a moment where we can learn that the clock does not have to be turn back.
Because one like George Zimmerman takes the law into his hand.
And then ruins the life of a family and of course takes the life of a young man.
Justice will be served but let us be certain.
To look at the broader picture.
That young black men in this country.
Are killing each other in epidemic numbers and that is the main problem.
That we must focus on as Americans now and I hope that this is a time where the pain.
And the loss of trade bond -- will be a bridge they can help us all.
The racial adversity is but -- -- extra -- -- and it -- president of local NAACP and Shreveport Louisiana are you backing down.
On your statement that that reverence that Sharpton and -- -- race hustlers.
Oh no I'm not backing down on that in in order to.
Into the very fact that this.
Kids to death.
Is likened unto the hallowed name of in what -- hill and people.
In the civil rights movement that were lost to us.
Is -- dance that bear was purpose.
In trying to evoke racial passions.
And so no I don't back down on that that is exactly what they were trying to do but these parents.
Did in fact send a strong message that they wanted no part of.
-- -- I agree I put the parents were wonderful but and what do you where do you fall on this is -- and that most white people.
Believe George Simmons account to most black people believe.
The -- on Morton was you know an innocent to his -- -- Now what they do I mean because consistent with what your saying the parents an -- heart goes out to them.
Normally it's the parents you expect to be hysterical.
You know demanding vigilante justice no Vera being calm moderate and reasonable and as the hosts on MSNBC.
-- And the race hustlers who are being hysterical and having this.
This vigilante justice son -- And a mom I mean there's a reason we have a judicial system in this country there is a careful collection of evidence -- it's a crime to -- to the police -- -- -- -- -- -- the grand jury the evidence is heard -- grand -- by the police to Begin -- and the prosecutor who originally decided not to bring charges.
I don't think.
White people are believing George lemon -- -- -- and inside I think they're saying.
We don't believe MSNBC and CNN host an NBC I don't know if you saw this this week.
They edited the 911 call that George Zimmermann made.
She ever listened to race heated game like 75 reasons that he thought -- this person was behaving suspiciously it's raining.
He doesn't seem to be walking in a purposeful way he's going back and forth.
I don't recognize and I forget what the various other reasons as.
911 operator and a -- who asks.
Dorms are at Jordan Zimmerman what races again and -- appointee says he's black well according to NBC.
All your Zimmerman says -- -- look suspicious he's black they just cop that whole middle part that's shocking and that is what I think.
People are reacting to -- we don't not.
Doctor King can you give me a -- some -- here I'm kinda at a time I'd love to hear from you finally.
Well when reverend Jesse Jackson said there's power and the -- -- -- TO.
There's power in a -- -- thinking this power in the -- that.
Took five Martin.
I -- stand right in this Easter season as power in the blood of Jesus Christ.
And I asked reverend Jackson reverend Sharpton the black Panthers not to race -- not to stir -- emotions but to follow the lead at the parents -- their dignity.
They -- saying give us justice for our side and that should be our focus ladies and gentlemen I I think that every speaker.
Every speaker is exactly reflected my own feeling on how the parents did throughout this ordeal but tonight I think especially -- so noble and so reasonable.
Ought to thank you all I've got.
