George Zimmerman and the NAACP

Robert Zimmerman, Jr. has written an op-ed piece about his personal experience meeting Ben Jealous, President of the NAACP, and how they met again a year later when his brother was slandered by Mr. Jealous in Sanford.

As always, Robert is a much more generous and eloquent spokesperson for George than most of George's supporters.  I, for one, despise Ben Jealous and what he and his organization stand for - divisiveness for profit.  They seem to only involve themselves in cases that have significant monetary or political value/gain.  I could list a ton of examples, the Trayvon Martin case being one of them.

What makes Trayvon more special than all the other hundreds of black children killed every year in America? Politics - Stand your ground, gun control - and money, money, money.  If your black child is killed in a drive by at your house, don't call the NAACP, they don't have time for that.
