George Zimmerman shot and killed 17-year-old unarmed Trayvon Martin for walking from a store in his neighborhood, following the teen after police advised him to stop.   Zimmerman confronted Martin who is now dead.

I was wondering when the  friends of George Zimmerman would appear to claim that the self-appointed neighborhood watchman was not racist.  Well here it goes…

Appearing on “CBS This Morning,” Joe Oliver said, “This incident on its own is not a racial incident; this story is a racial story … It has sparked a dialogue that needs to be made, because I live with what they’re talking about every day. But in this particular instance when it involves this happening, it was not racially motivated.”

 Oliver also told Erica Hill that Zimmerman, who he spoke to over the weekend, is frustrated that he cannot tell his story because of impending grand jury proceedings. He said that understanding exactly what happened between the time Zimmerman got out of his vehicle and the time the gun went off cannot be known until all the evidence is presented to the grand jury.

 ”The hard part about this,” Oliver said, is that Zimmerman “wants to tell what happened but he’s been instructed not to.  Source
