Will Trayvon Martin's Family Offer Zimmerman an Apology?

It will interesting to see how it is handled, IF, after all the rant about racist white folk or racist latino folk, George Zimmerman, a latino-white, actually was defending himself when the gun went off. I suspect two things will occur:

1. The Martin family will not apologize

2. The Martins & millions of other blacks will claim that the White police force (which is biased in itself because there are black officers on it) is covering it up to protect the non-black Zimmerman.

As for #1, it would be far to embarrassing for the Martin's to make such an apology or admit they were dead wrong about how their son conducted himself when not at home. Uh, most teens act 100% different when around friends or not a home. I know I did. It would embarrassing because of all of the race related issues that have been wrongly put into this simple crime or incident. Judging from Trayvon's Twitter and MySpace accounts, which may be shut down, the 17 yr. old was acting totally different around dudes from his hood or homies, at least online.

As for #2, well, with so many other agendas from other discontents jumping in on this issue and using race as the hammer, the police are ALWAYS to blame, which is very biased.

As to the police, it is a mixed force. The police did not arrest Zimmerman because according to Florida law, actually, most laws dealing with self-defense, deadly force can be used if one truly feels they are in danger for their own life. Obviously, the police report was taken from Zimmerman. There are witnesses who claim, but it is not fact, that ZImmerman was the aggressor. Yet, if he continued to follow Trayvon to see if he was or was not going to do damage to the condo complex, this can hardly be called an aggressor. If, Trayvon, turned and confronted this latino, words were exchanged and Trayvon swung first, then Zimmerman acted the same and they landed on the ground in a struggle. What if Trayvon had a gun? If the result was the same, would this even be in the news? Would it be in the national headlines if Zimmerman was black? What if Trayvon had some weed on him?

Fact is, it is all about race again and the old wounds and scars of the past have resurfaced in the South. If the police had released their report within a week of the incident, I suspect, the same result would occur. Why? Because Trayvon's parents have racist opinions of others as well, and they think the whites are covering it up.

If the situation is like Trayvon's attorney states, Zimmerman should go to trial and sentenced, otherwise, he will be owed a big apology for his part in the tragic event that continues for Zimmerman long after the media has left. There will be those seeking revenge, like the New Black Panther Party.

Do you also want them to reimburse Zimmerman for the 9mm bullet he expended shooting Trayvon?

Of course not.But, if it does end this way at the end of the day, then yes. Zimmerman's problems will still be around years after everyone has moved on because of public opinion before the facts were out.

Not enough evidence to rule either way. It's a tragedy no matter how this turn out. One person is dead, the other have to live with the fact that he killed someone at point-blank range, looking into that person's eyes as he pulled the trigger.

This will go into the courts as it's the only way to calm down the public furor. I remember a fictional episode, I think it was NBC's short lived "Third Watch" where a cop was forced to shoot a crazed black guy charging at another cop. No weapon was found, and various black leaders called for investigation for murder. Eventually the dead guy's father spoke up: his son is paranoid schizo known for violent outbursts and he does not blame the police at all.

My point is we were not there, and reconstruction of events is already subject to bias. What Trayvon held in his hands does not matter. Nor was what he was wearing or did before. What only mattered is what exactly was Zimmerman thinking when he confronted Trayvon, and whether he was justified in thinking so. Unfortunately, only he would know the former.

The sad part for me is that as soon as the media got a hold of this, Jackson, Sharpton, NBPP and even Obama had to step in. This is NO longer about Trayvon Martin, but about politics. I feel it is a tactic to motivate racial issues, to fire up a sector of voters.

I really think this one is going to get interesting, because I think it is NOT going to turn out as Jesse Jackson preferred it would.

Thanks Perrya for this hub and your thoughts.

Nope, no apology from race pimps who have destroyed Zimmerman before getting the complete story. First off, he is only half-hispanic on his maternal side. It's the same inaccuracy as calling Obama black, since he was born to white mama. The local paper ran a glowing two-page story making Martin an innocent angelic little boy Martyr. A day later the story was already smelling, as Trayvon's history plus police reports and Zimmerman's defenders went public. Remember Duke LaCrosse?

@FGual -- ah, but of course, anything revealed bad about Martin is a "smear campaign", whereas anything bad about Zimmerman is "we learned more about the hunter/killer". (Yes, there's a lot of sarcasm in this comment)

The media is NOT helping by using old pictures. Here's a picture I found (all pictures are accurate AFAIK)

Yes, the media has already convicted Zimmerman. But, had the police released the report weeks ago, some of this could be avoided. He still would be blamed.

Zimmerman "convicted" himself in the eyes of the majority of the public through his sinister, creepy phonecall, then following and stalking Trayvon (against the express instructions of the 911 operator), then shooting and killing him.

It's fascinating how the extreme right are now trying to turn this case into a rallying bonfire for the KKK and other "Aryan" racist bigots -- particularly in trying to smear Trayvon Martin and blame him for the audacity of stealing Zimmerman's bullet ... in his dead body.


perrya profile image

perrya 4 years ago Author

The far left is as bad as the far right. being in the middle keeps emotion BS out. Zimmerman never convicted himself. You have no clue to use stalking. Most watchmen would continue to observe and follow, duh! The far left has painted trayvon as an innocent little kid, and the black panther party is calling for his head. Sorry, there must be middle ground in all this.


kschang profile image

kschang 4 years ago from San Francisco, CA, USA

It's also fascinating how the "black rights" extremists are now trying to turn this case into rallying bonfire for "civil rights", such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Didn't the new Black Panthers offered $10000 for capture Zimmerman, dead or alive?

Both sides are appealing to emotion instead of logic. We in the middle (including the cops) are looking past all the rhetoric and get heat from both sides.

Well, judging from the very latest news, it may look like that Zimmerman could be guilty of manslaughter and the police simply were inept. I am referring to the video of Zimmerman in the police station- he did not seem to have a busted noise or bleeding from his head, as he claimed. but, kschang, I agree with you.


Bryan 4 years ago

You guys are being willfully ignorant. The guy called 911 47 times in just over a year, has three prior arrests (one domestice violence, one resisting arrest without violence and one resisting arrest WITH violence). Do you people really believe that this level headed (apparently not when viewing his priors) 250 lb man would be attacked by a 140 lb 17 yr old? Which is a more plausible story. A 250lb man with three priors and having called 911 47 times in a year confronted Martin or the other way around. Shouldn't Trayvon Martin be the one using the "Stand Your Ground" defense as this man was obviously tailing him? We may never know because, despite all this evidence, the police failed to investigate. This is a cover up. Has nothing to do with race and the Martins should never apologize to Zimmerman. That guy killed their son.

Eyewitnesses claim zimmerman was assaulted from behind as he was walking back to his car. They claim Trayvon was on top of Zimmerman and zimmerman was crying out for help. I looked closely at video of zimmerman under police custody and it was just too blurry to see wound's.Why was trayvon in the neigborhood when he didn't live close by.If Trayvon was not violent why did a friend state on a memorial webpage 'i know you whooped his 'ass' good? Why is the media painting trayvon as an innocent schoolboy when a recent photo show's him to be just the opposite? Why did trayvon's parent's seal their son's school record's? What is it they don't want the public to know? I read to expect race riot's this summer..this incident will set them off.Media is doing a great job to egg them on.


Bryan 4 years ago

Sorry Perrya. I think it is you who have been brainwashed. It doesn't matter whether what I say is useless in court or not. What matters is that there is enough evidence to suggest that it should be tried in court. And it is apparent that the Sheriff's Dept. has done a wonderful job in making sure it doesn't make it to court. And reading my post and coming to the conclusion that I should join the KKK is as logical as me reading your post and telling you you should be a transvestite. Makes no sense.

And then there is "guest" chiming him with his brainwashed viewpoint and more willful ignorance. To suggest that Trayvon didn't belong in that neighborhood when it is one of the only things not disputed (that he was there visiting his father) is about as willfully ignorant as you can get.

I won't comment on the "KKK mentality", but sure seems like a lot of the far right are either deaf on this issue or unable to read. Bryan is calling for the case to be "tried in court". So far, it's been "trial by execution" -- the execution of Trayvon Martin.

Hmmm. No I doubt Mr. Zimmerman should expect an apology for the hassle he's had to endure for shooting Trayvon. Hmmm. Well Mr. Zimmerman's father is an ashkenazi. The leniency that you see has more to do with that than that he's got white blood in him. I guess what baffles me is the insensitivity that I'm reading out here about the fact that this boy is "DEAD". Apologize? I won't ask are you insane, I'll just assume that you are. This boy is DEAD.... That piece of this narrative is not subject to spin the politicians on either side of the isle. So his mother should apologize because Mr. Zimmerman may have to explain himself and is talked about from within the boy's community?

?2 Thes 2:11 speaks to why anyone would even suggest such a thing. Everywhere I go out here, I have to warn people, take note of your indifference to this boy's death and take even bigger note of anyone that would use this boy's death to put themselves into the limelight. This whole narrative is sick, sick, sick.

There is no insensitivity. It is horrible, the whole event is tragic from Trayvon supporters using it as a race issue, to the media hyping it as such, spinning it so that many have a KKK mentality, to Florida's gun law, to the plethora of guns out there used in crime everyday, to the police who have not released all the info, to the lawyers who continue to spin the facts and misuse words to describe events, to zimmerman who fears for his own life and is convicted by all and will never get a fair trial, to Obama who had no business as President to even comment on this because of his own mixed race. Yeah, there are a lot of apologies to be made that will never be done.

Trayvon is dead because he went to the store buying candy and ice tea and his girl friend was the only one talked to him before he died a thats sad.what if that was you or your son and your son came out of the store and you seen a guy like geroge spoted you and he shot your son and said it was self defense and thats what he told the police it was self defense and he does not have on any security guard shirt on or security jacket on or any thing security how would you feel sad or mad or angry and this is what happen to trayvon martin. Gerorge needs to be in prison for life.


Sergio 4 years ago

trayvon was dead when he was almost home and his girl friend was the last one to talk to him and trayvon lost his life by going to the store getting ice tea and skittles. Just minding his business and almost home until geroge spoted him and said this kid look like hes up to no good. So it can happen to any body or you or me or your child. Say that you was coming out of your house and you was walking to the store or the mall and when you came out walking home minding your on business and this guy runs after you and caught up with you and say what are you doing out here and you dont know what this guy want and then this guy is fighting you and youll roll in the grass and then he shots you in your chest right before your get to your house and your screaming before your life and the police does not tell your family that they have your son in the murd for three days how would your family feel or you feel if that happen to you. I know I would and im mad and this is not my son and its very sad and no justice in this world I really feel bad for martins parents and ttayvon will be re resurrected and thats a go

ElderYoungMan 4 years ago from Worldwide

I have to ask, and I'm really not being funny. Where did you white people get this ridiculous new habit of trying to paint yourselves as the victims of racism? George Zimmerman is a victim of the KKK or a KKK mentality? Really, do all of you listen to Glenn Beck and not actually vet one word he says or one opinion he keeps? What do ANY of you know about being under a KKK mentality? I don't think there is anything more ridiculous than some white guy trying to tell me that my opinion or the folks that other white media executives put on the TV and tell me are my leaders, somehow equates to the 393 years that blacks have been oppressed in this country. Is that just not the dumbest thing ever uttered?

Further, let's try to remember....THIS KID IS DEAD!

No one in this discussion seems to think that George would get anything but a fair trial. Why would he get anything different? My advise to you would be to take your own advise about Jackson and Sharpton. What they do really doesn't mean a whole lot except that you might have to hear them, because they get airtime when certain blacks get killed.

Zimmerman is a victim of the KKK. WOW. It doesn't get more sad than that people.

Quit spinning what I said to validate your own way of thinking. I said, many people have already convicted Zimmerman and if he were to walk outside in public I am sure some crazy would do something. That is the same as a KKK mentality-don't care about justice, about facts, about law, just revenge.

This is outrageous. There is NO comparison to the "KKK mentality", in which black people were LYNCHED on merely the SUSPICION that they'd done "something wrong". And for black men, this included merely LOOKING at a white woman -- "reckless eyeballing".

The KKK was a TERRORIST organization supported by the de facto powers of the various states they operated in (many local and state officials were members and participants in the terrorism).

The extremist right and white racist shock troops rely on people being ignorant of history, so they can twist it and manipulate it to justify their own bigotry.

An apology? Are you for real? This man, George Zimmerman killed a mother and father's son. He killed a brother, and a grandson. Mr.Zimmerman offered them nothing. Even if it was self defense does he not have an ounce of remorse in his body. The fact remains, a young teen on the cusp of manhood is now dead. I think that should at least require some kind of response to the parents. My God, what a slap in the face for you to infer Zimmerman is owed an apology.

I feel like that proverbial fly on the wall reading what white people really think about us, and boy is it frightening. Makes my neck feel tight. It never ceases to amaze me how we see the same scenario completely differently.

It's so sad how you've all sided against a dead child like he did something wrong. A child on his way home from a 7-11 is dead. It doesn't matter that he had a hoodie on because it was raining, it shouldn't matter that he was walking home he belonged in the complex. He is...excuse me, was a citizen of these United States, he had the right to walk the street, go to the store and wear the hoodie. George Zimmerman took his right to walk the street, and he took away his right to live for no better reason than his idea that Trayvon looked like he had something in his hand and he looked like he's on drugs. He was clear to note to the police dispatcher three times that the threat was more immediate because he was a black male. Something is terribly wrong with that picture.

Zimmerman fabricated the threat in his head. He was feeling manly because he had a loaded gun and a law that would back him up. He also had a judge daddy at home. He failed to factor in that the same law he would use could be Trayvon's defense as well. There's no question he had no right to have a gun in his possession. That night he told the police he was doing his "security rounds"- this man is not an officer, not a security guard. He's a hired nothing. He was a little man with a gun. That gun made him 7ft tall and tough enough to beat anyone in his path and he knew it. He knew if he confronted anyone he would be the victor. Someone was following him, by the account of his girlfriend on the phone, she said Trayvon had begun to jog away from the implied threat. The person begun following him on foot. What happens after that is in the hands of the three eyewitnesses. The facts show Trayvon's Skittles were clearly out gunned.

I was stunned by a few of the comments but,FGual's comment about "race pimp's" is very curious. Maybe that's a white terminology because I've never heard the term. FGaul - as for calling Obama black, he is. Whites came up with the one drop of black blood rule in 1635. Obama's mother is white, my father is white -but, we are still black. If he weren't president would you try to claim him?

The first thing that these "Neo" racists did was hit him over the head and make him forget who the KKK is and was, so now, with a straight face, he can say that people like him (and george zimmerman) are victims of a KKK mentality. You have to let it sit for a while, but it just get's more ridiculous as he types!

Now, the neo-racists have removed his memory of this country's one drop of black blood rule..... He typed that message as though it never existed. That's what will be called Beckian witchcraft in future generations.

I just think the black community in general will not accept that and they want revenge because they think is is racially motivated. Would this be different if Trayvon was killed by a black teen or other black man 28 yrs old? The answer is probably yes.

In that case, there are millions of black people who are white. You are opening up a big can of worms. All half-white "black" people do not come from white mothers only, as they are often accused; some come from white fathers.

It seems to me that Whites claim Obama to be white when it is to their advantage. Many say that he is Black when they dislike something about his administration. He is White because his mom was white; he is black because his daddy was black. the little rules defining race change as White situations change. Once a one drop rule was popular, but there are now too many whites with more than one drop. So, a new rule has to be made. Once upon a time "colored" whites were set aside, but they finally melded into the white race. It is complicated, isn't it?

My opinion: Obama is White! Who had him, who raised him, where was his father, and whose communities influenced him? Darn, the man tried to practice being black when he was young! There are millions of biracial Whites who are white as we write. If Obama had look all White, he would be white regardless of his blood. When I close my eyes and listen to Obama, I hear a white man. Someone said he should have felt a burden to put some black concerns at the forefront of his agenda. What would make him do that? His blackness? Apparently, he did not inherit any unless you want to count what he rehearsed as a youngster.

From now on, try to convince those whites who downsize him as a black misfit to embrace their own and stop the fuss.

Wow, what a spirited discussion! The comments, left and right, only suggest that our deeply entrenched beliefs about race remain as volatile as ever, despite all the BS about the classless and colorblind society. “The white race deems itself to be the dominant race in this country. And so it is, in prestige, in achievements, in education, in wealth and power. So I doubt not it will continue to be for all time, if it remains true to its great heritage and holds fast to the principles. (Mr Justice Harlan, United States Supreme Court, 1896). Anticipating responses, I do understand the year is 2012 and not 1896, yet we take no issue with holding on to ideas expressed in the Declaration of Independence dated 1776. One reason racism is still with us is we pretend it doesn't exist. If there is no problem, there is nothing to fix. "You can never be a neighbor to a white, you can only live next door" (Chassagne, 2006). sometimes I laugh about all the racial tension because the top 1% don't care they see only green we're the pawns with heads in the sand. In the jungle and rice patties you didn't care what color the person helping was, only that he was helping and shooting in the same direction! I'm sure the same holds true for those who were in Iraq and who are in Afghanistan now. Before signing out I'll leave you with an idea no one wants to contemplate: "the only way to loose yourself from an oppressor is to commit against him, acts more heinous than those he commits against you" (Franz Fanon). As a U.S. Marine I was trained to kill: sadly at some point I began to enjoy the work. After fighting for this country, I have sworn on both my parents' graves That should I perish in something so stupid as race-based action I will take 17-18 of you with me.

I keep wondering about the real possibility that Mr. Z could legally be acquitted or not guilty. Honestly, I think we all know that will not satisfy the black community. if Trayvon had been shot by a confrontation with another black kid, none of the hoopla the Black organizations would have said much about. Just because it was a Hispanic, they are. Many of them still not have got over the scars of the 60s. they need to.


ElderYoungMan profile image

ElderYoungMan 4 years ago from Worldwide

OK. Let me get this straight. Because Trayvon's death fit the profile of what the media can use to boost viewership and sell newspapers, somehow the "Community" is to blame because a black on black crime doesn't cause the same frenzy? I will tell you what will satisfy the black community. $77,376,000,000,000. That's roughly 12 million people at minimum wage, for 400 years. I didn't even calculate OT, stolen land, rape, murder or terrorism. That's just the money at a rate of $7.75, though we know the labor was worth a whole lot more than that. I'd say that would be my biggest scar. Take care of that one, and we call the rest even.

Yes, scars from the past are always a problem to deal with and get over, whether race or not related. Every family has them, like fathers beating kids or wives, dating, drugs. But, unless one is vindictive and seek revenge, at some point, you have to move on and let it go. If you do not, it will eat you from within. That is what the race thing in this case is doing.

You've used your words very effectively. I can see that you can't see it. It's not in you. That should worry you, but it won't. Time's have changed? Then what exactly is the article about? A dead black child, but I doubt you see that either. Vengeance? What in God's name can "You" give me for what this country has done? In order for me to want vengeance, there has to be something inside of me that would want to do to you and people who look like you, what your ancestors did to mine and I am glad to say that this is not the case. I don't swing that way (sicko). I didn't say all whites. Some look at the cruelty and malice and truly repent for the sins of their fathers. Some asked to be reborn and ask the Father to fill them with His spirit, so that it's not possible to write things like "A dead childs mother should apologize to the person that shot her child". Do you still not see the perversion in that Perry? You Perry are full of demons, malice and hell. Don't try to play generalities. You should just admit that you don't really care what your people did to take this land. You should just admit that you've conveniently turned a blind eye to the violence that is in your own blood. If you look it in the face, you might find some sort of emotions about it. If you find some emotions about it, you might actually be able to take it before the Father. You might get filled with something that will shut your mouth talking about things you have no understanding of and break that demonic Beck's spell off of you. Those over 60 saw you and your fathers with no boundaries or roadblocks, like the law. Why exactly do you have to tell a certain people that it is illegal to mutilate, rape, burn, hang, stab, torture, kidnap, trample, tar, etc, another group of people, that you've already enslaved? Why is that? Now the children of those sorts of reprobates and the beneficiaries of 400 years of plunder have the nerve to say "Only those over 60 were part of the any discrimination of a time before 1965." You live in disney land and whatever is in you that caused you to write this embarrassing piece is not of the Father. Hopefully, you'll see that before you leave here.

Well Perrya, you certainly chose a magnetic title and it has done a good job of bolstering your readership. I would like to point out one thing... more than anything, it is the ineptitude and insensitivity of the municipality and state that functioned as key accelerants in this case. No one is so foolish as to believe that we have embarked upon an era of open- mindedness and neutrality. We expexct, on ocaision, to encounter bias and racism when dealiong with people but the days opf blatant system racism, supposedly, are behind. The Sanford police, irrefutably, failed to do their job and the state followed by failing to povide oversight to the city.Then the tug of war began....when talking heads for the police department became confrontational with citizens to whom they are accountable.

Some one claimed blacks want to stamp Zimmerman white in order to classify this a racial incident. We know George is not white and most don't care, George is the one with the Clarence Thomas complex but it's my guess he feels like a bonafide member of the club now. People are truly showing compassion and generosity.I is now 8:50PM DST does any commenter oppose my printing this thread anf ubjecting it to word analysis?

Well, it will be interesting to see what does happen should Mr. Z be acquitted or not guilty once the trial is done. I simply project what many will feel as some injustice. whether it is or it is not is of personal opinion. If he is guilty, so be it.

Levertis Steele, rarely am I stunned speechless, but your commentary certainly left me so...

You sound like a black man who hates himself.

Comedian Paul Mooney, who used to write for Richard Pryor, tells a joke that he cries when he see's homeless white men. He says, "What a waste of white skin". I can imagine that would be your sentiment, only not in jest.

I take offense at most of what you had to say, how you can comment on lives you clearly have no idea about.

I said before that I am the daughter of a white father and a black mother, who fought against black racism like yours for years, moving us from neighborhood to neighborhood; and from state to state just because my parents loved one another and wanted to be together.

My father finally put his foot down and said, enough. They didn't have to make us live in black neighborhoods and subject us to substandard schools. We weren't poor, but they wanted us to be around other blacks. My parents decided it was time to live according to my parents income. We moved to the suburbs.

I make no apologizies for going to Prep school and achieving what I have. I could never have gotten through junior high being chased home because they saw my dad at parent/teacher night and found out he was white. I thank my parents for taking us out of the black racism that was destroying my brothers and me. To read your words brought it all back. Shame on you and your hate.

I never heard that Obama needed to be taught to be black, that sounds lke ridiculous, kitchen table BS. When he looks in the mirror his blackness stares him in the face, otherwise Michelle would be Susie or Becky.
