The AP allowed their bias to slip in a recent piece about the Trayvon Martin vigils around the country on Saturday. The media is determined to make the case a white on black hate crime, but the facts do not match up. The AP cannot even accept Zimmerman’s own ethnicity (emphasis is mine):
The Florida case has become a flashpoint in debates over guns, race relations and self-defense laws. Zimmerman identifies as Hispanic. Martin was black.
He identifies himself as Hispanic because he is Hispanic. But if the AP admits he is Hispanic they would abandon their narrative.
There are Justice For Trayvon vigils across America on Saturday.
