In “he tried it” news, Robert Zimmerman Jr., brother of Trayvon Martin’s killer George Zimmerman, went on a Twitter tirade against black teens. Zimmerman shared a comparison photo of Martin and De’Marquis Elkins, a 17-year-old accused to shooting a child, captioning the photo with “Any questions?”

There are plenty of questions left unanswered, including why Robert’s brother George was following Trayvon in a community he rightfully belonged in and how a gun entered the equation at all. Zimmerman continued his Twitter rant, criticizing the media for demonizing his brother and victimizing Martin.

White victimhood is at its finest. As Mediaite points out, Martin and Elkins have little in common other than their complexion and their ages.

“The only thing Trayvon Martin and De’Marquise Elkins have in common is that they are black teenagers who have middle fingers. That’s where it ends, but the differences between the two are many. Trayvon Martin isn’t accused of any crime, while Elkins is accused of murder. Elkins is alive, and will have an opportunity to defend himself. Trayvon Martin is dead, and can’t defend himself against the despicable comparison of himself to an alleged baby-murderer.”

However, in the eyes of the Zimmermans that is enough because all black teens are killers.

George Zimmerman will stand trial on June 10.

  1. He can manipulate the facts all he wants but his brother is still and forever will be an entitled racist murderer. You just don’t walk up to someone…say they look suspicious and take their lives….Trayvon was a child, a person, a human being, had a heartbeat, a mother and a father….how disrespectful to his parents…

    ….somehow certain twisted, sick, and entitled white people feel that their lives are more valuable than others and it makes my stomach so sick and filthy on the inside that people can be that arrogant…

    Keep talking bro…It’s that entitlement mentality that got your brother where he is right now…

    Clearly George Zimmerman’s brother is not helping his case. The Prosecution clearly stated that George Zimmerman displayed a “us” against “them” mentality. These rants promote the belief that George Zimmerman targeted Trayvon because he was one of “them”. You can define “them” anyway you want, teens, black teens, thieves, criminals, whatever. In my opinion Zimmerman killed Trayvon because he ASSUMED this innocent child was one of “them”. I hope we get justice for Trayvon and his family.

    Are we talking about Trayvon or are we talking about a 13 month old baby. I’ll bet if the baby’s mom would have had a gun, this would have ended differently and some people would have called the baby mom a racist and murderer. Come on people we are talking about a baby.

    • And don’t trayvon Martin was also a child. Nobody has the right to follow you home. Yea is 17 but under the eyes of the law he is not yet an adult. Black people being followed because we look suspicious is not uncommon. I was just racial profiled a couple weeks ago. As much as I wanted to punch this cop in the face I held my cool. Unfortunately trayvon didn’t do the same but if a man who was not a cop was following me I would be aggressive too. Would you?

    Now that the trial WILL take place in spite of Mark O’Mara’s games in court, I hope that justice will be done for this poor kid who was doing nothing wrong. It was his tragic misfortune to be accosted by a police academy reject who has a record of violence of his own. It includes striking a police officer, injuring a female customer when he was a bouncer which got him fired, and domestic violence. George Zimmerman has bragged about his felonies being reduced to misdemeanors on his MySpace account due to his father’s connections. His family, especially his brother, has done him no favors with all their simple-minded, ill-advised comments which are completely divorced from reality.
