The use of someone same race or same nationality has been long used has a tool to shield those who are racists, careless about certain groups of people.
For instance, in the Zimmerman case currently this is issue has now being raised as an excuse, and those barbaric people in this country, as usual using his background black relation family root as an excuse to help him get away with a hate crime, or possible anything that has to do with racial profiling.
However, this issue that I am appalling is not because I think Zimmerman is racist and was profiling his victim, Travon Martin, but I am more appalling because it seems such a ruse and has been used many many times and in many many racial cases.
I find it ridiculous and only a barbaric person would accept this as true that because someone is related to another race that he or she cannot has hate or discriminate against of the race.
The true story they never never talk about, is the understanding of the reality that, most low-self-esteem people, many blacks and Spanish and people from other poor countries in the world tend to lean on the idea that : in order to be successful in this country, or in order to be seen as superior of their own race, they feel thatthey have to hate their own race, or go against their own race or own national origin in order to get where they want to get in life or be who they want to be, and feel special.
This stupidest got to change, although I do not see any sign of changing when they refuse to talk of its reality of the situation.
The reality is simple, blunt, obvious and crystal clear " Zimmerman having someone who was a black person way way back before he was born in his background is not a reason to believe he cannot be racist and, in fact, even if he was married a black woman like President Obama, he still can be racist or even more racist then a White person. Point Blank!
As in example, if I sleep around with some White women, does that make me a not-racist black person? Of course not! Because it may simply means that I am using them for fun, just to satisfy my needs, my desires. Therefore, even if I have kids with some White women I still can be racist. And the same goes out to a White person who dates a RICH black man or a white man who marries with one of the cutest black woman. That doesn't mean they are not racist because they date different race. It could as well mean they just in it for benefits or a pretext.
Anyway, I find this is very absurd when news reporters keep headlined these kinds of stories as it is "such a big deal". To me, it's sounds stupid, yet could may as well be they racist or purposely air these stories. Also, to me it likes using their media as a defense for certain alleged people who utilize a victim same background racial person as a tool to shield them from racial discrimination based on race, nation origin, and etc....
So, based on my opinions, I feel that the reporters have been using that kind of tactic for longtime as a meant to brainwashed the people, and to force them to accept their untrue ideas.
