On July 17, a Sanford, Fla., couple and their children were rescued from their overturned SUV by George Zimmerman — yes, that George Zimmerman.
With the media hysteria surrounding Zimmerman's acquittal, why wasn't this story front page news? Perhaps because Zimmerman's actions support his claim the Trayvon Martin confrontation was motivated by his role as community watch volunteer — and not racism.
Here's more unreported news: In 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder ordered the FBI to Florida. Their mission? To find evidence of racism in Zimmerman's past. But the full force of the FBI failed to find a single shred of evidence against him (reported July 11, 2013).
Yet Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder and President Barack "I am Trayvon" Obama, with generous assistance from the media, used the Zimmerman case to spread tension, fear and racial division in America. You'd almost think they want it that way.
