AP Still Referring to Zimmerman as 'White'

[h=2]From an article by the Associated Press, Monday evening, July 15, 2013 (emphasis added):[/h]
The interview came two days after the six-woman jury acquitted Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch activist, of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Martin in a gated community in Sanford, Fla. Martin was black, and Zimmerman was white. Zimmerman was not arrested for 44 days, and the delay in charging him led to protests from those who believed race was a factor in the handling of the case.​


OK, if Zimmerman is white, is Obama white, too?

What do Hispanics think of this?

One of the strangest things about this extradorinarily mixed-up event.

Before he was elected, there were Black pundits who said Obama wasn't Black enough. Maybe Zimmerman isn't Brown enough? ;)
