For the past week Lauren has been writing about events at the Ohio State University related to Trayvon Martin’s shooting. She’s covered the rallies supporting Trayvon. And she’s covered the hate-filled, racist responses, including the graffiti painted on an OSU building supporting George Zimmerman, the self-appointed captain of the local neighborhood watch who shot and killed Trayvon Martin in late February.

This evening Think Progress confirmed that Zimmerman is now using images of that graffiti on a new website ( www.therealgeorgezimmerman.com). The goal of the website, according to Zimmerman, is to give his supporters the opportunity to donate cash for his living expenses and legal defense. Mr. Zimmerman guarantees he will “personally, maintain accountability of all funds received.” “I reassure you,” he adds. “Every donation is appreciated.”

Just looking at the graffiti you might mistake it as a simple message supporting Zimmerman. But it’s important to remember that this was painted on the Hale Black Cultural Center on the night of the anniversary of the killing of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This wasn’t just some randomly chosen location or time. This graffiti was, without question, racially motivated.

Unlike the people who tagged up the Hale Center, George Zimmerman’s motivation on the evening he shot and killed Trayvon Martin is less clear. And without further information or evidence I’m not going to pass judgement on him. It seems obvious he overreacted. But did he kill Trayvon Martin because he was black? That I just don’t know.

But there are plenty of people out there convinced that George Zimmerman’s actions were racially motivated, and more people seem to be adopting this perspective every day.

George Zimmerman’s choice to use this photo may not have been intentionally racist, but that’s exactly how it will be perceived.

George Zimmerman claims he is not be a racist, and he may be right, but if he keeps making choices like this, he’s quickly going to run out of people who believe him.

    Have you seen that vigilante man?
    I’ve been hearin’ his name all over the land…

  •  Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.
    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.
    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?
    How long would it take anyone to realise I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?
    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    Exactly, a racist can only be white because only whites are evil.  There is no such thing as a racist black person. Oh, except for Sharpton, Wright, Coons, Reps Lee and Clyburn, Obama, Holder.  They are all antiracists and their enemy is whitey.  

  •  Damn straight brother.

  • But there are plenty of people out there convinced that George Zimmerman’s actions were racially motivated, and more people seem to be adopting this perspective every day.

    Actually, the anti-white perspective is demographically at it’s maximum and going down.

    Every day, more people see that “anti-racism” is nothing but anti-white bigotry and anti-white policy.

    More and more people say that “white guilt is BS” and turn against the anti-white orthodoxy.  More and more people realize that we have nothing to lose but our chains in fighting self righteous anti-white rich people (and it is rich pale people who are the most anti-white in the country).

    They have bullied us enough.  We are more than them, and we are just as smart, and way way way more pissed off.

    nobody actually says any of this except the voices in your head.

  • Some… interesting comments. Wow.

  • Stormfront out in force today, I see.

    Looks like the American Renaissance derps have moved on from Ron Paul’s campaign and have a new man crush.

  • NMAXXS

    Yeah, whites in this country have been suffering horribly because of the racist views of non-whites.  Give me a break.

    Graffiti is so common today that even major corporations are engaging in it. The USA Today was among the many publications to report that spray-painted graffiti advertising by Coca-Cola had appeared on sidewalks during the NCAA Men’s Final  Four event.  The graffiti was done with a commercial paint designed to hold up for several weeks at outdoor construction projects. The act was performed in violation of city ordinances.   Is your neighborhood the next target?
    How can you help stop Coca-Cola from further graffiti vandalism?  As an individual, business, public official or as a neighborhood organization, you can:Tell others about this outrage – share with friends, family and colleaguesSend an email or letter to me that I can convey to Coca-Cola on your behalf.  Contact me at http://www.DefacingAmerica.comEncourage your City Council representative to contact Coca-Cola to express their concernVisit http://www.DefacingAmerica.comI will deliver any and all community messages of displeasure to Coca-Cola executives in an attempt to gain their commitment to discontinue the practice of graffiti vandalism.  Graffiti experts agree that graffiti hurts us all.  How can we prevent graffiti by educating our youth that the publi right-of-way is not a place to tag! Graffiti experts and graffiti books define graffiti as unauthorized.  Boycott Coca-Cola!Julius ZsakoWeb Site:  http://www.DefacingAmerica.com

    I don’t know the facts in the T.M. Shooting, only what the media has put out there. I want the case to see justice, in the justice system, with unbiased law applied, and ALL parties on either side calling for unlawful actions, such as bounties, shooting cops, rioting, and destruction of property be sought after, and exposed for what they are. Criminals. They say the race war is on, they are right. And now they don’t seem to be the only ones shooting. I don’t have a gate on my property, and don’t need one. Don’t come to my house, and if you do, you won’t have to worry about my dog. It will be the 2nd amendment anyone who threatens my family, or property has to deal with.

  • throttler

    Black people are more racist than white people.

  • throttler

    Black people teach their kids to be racist against Whites, Chinese,Latinos, etc.

  • throttler

    Oh yeah.  He attended “Rev.” Wright’s church which is anti-white.  Obama said “I found solice in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s (white) race.”
