‘Dear George Zimmerman letter: you’ll live the life of a black man now’
I remember one of George Zimmerman’s attorney’s saying over and over that ‘It’s not against the law to follow someone’.
‘George Zimmerman has been found not guilty of the murder of Trayvon Martin despite admitting he shot and killed the kid, and while he now has his freedom, it’ll come at a price’.
‘According to Alex Fraser, a Facebook user who posted an open letter that’s gone viral, George Zimmerman has now been sentenced to live the life of a black man’.
“Dear George Zimmerman, for the rest of your life you are now going to feel what it’s like to be a black man in America. You will feel people stare at you. Judging you for what you think are unfair reasons. You will lose out on getting jobs for something you feel is outside your control. You will believe yourself to be an upstanding citizen and wonder why people choose not to see that”.
“People will cross the street when they see you coming. They will call you hurtful names. It will drive you so insane that you’ll want to scream at the top of your lungs. But you will have to wake up the next day put on firm look and push through life”.
“I bet you never thought that by shooting a black man you’d end up inheriting his struggles. Enjoy your “freedom.” Sincerely, a black male who could have been Trayvon Martin”.
