No, not an apology from Zimmerman–he already made one. I’m talking about an apology by many of the thousands who were quick to judge his actions based on little to no knowledge at all of what took place.
In recent days, it has come to light that Zimmerman had black eyes, a broken nose and cuts on his head–all injuries consistent with being hit by someone else.
Now, the news is that Martin, whom Zimmerman claims he shot in self-defense, had THC in his system. Or, in the vernacular, he’d been going out with Mary Jane. It’s becoming more difficult to support the image of a sweet boy holding an ice tea and a pack of Skittles.
Unfortunately, I don’t believe any apologies will be forthcoming. You see, it’s not about the truth. Rather, the uproar was and is about moving the narrative forward–the narrative that says people with less melanin have a pathological hatred for those with more and seek to do them ill whenever and however they can get away with.
God help us all.
