AP Still Referring to Zimmerman as 'White'

From an article by the Associated Press, Monday evening, July 15, 2013 (emphasis added):

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.

The article, about an interview given by one of the jurors in the case, has been published by news outlets across the country. A newer version corrects the error–almost (emphasis added):

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 identifies himself as Hispanic. 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.

The lie, the label, is just too good to let go.
