President Obama, America's first half-black, half-white president, went to the White House podium last week to address the nation's most racially divisive case since Rodney King. But he wasn't there to calm the country.
President Obama's personal remarks Friday on his reaction to the George Zimmerman verdict have been praised by many, including the parents of Trayvon Martin, but black talk-show host Tavis Smiley says it's too little too late.
Of all people to pass judgment on others, former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer would have been wise to remain silent and not vocalize his opinions on the George Zimmerman case ("Eliot Spitzer: Zimmerman verdict 'a failure of justice,'" Web, July 14). The credibility of his opinions went down the drain when he denigrated his own reputation and humiliated his family by frequenting a high-priced prostitute in the nation's capital.
As race relations continue to boil over following the George Zimmerman verdict, Nancy Grace had some bizarre allegations against the Hispanic 29-year-old on Friday night, after she suggested he is living a normal life, "driving through Taco Bell every night, having a churro," while Trayvon Martin is still dead.
Protests in the wake of the George Zimmerman not-guilty verdict have been peaceful across most the country, but anger and violence are escalating in California.
Reacting to the not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial, noted liberal Van Jones asked: What? Do black children now have to dress up to go buy candy?
MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson tried to draw the analogy Monday that black people feel the same way about race and the George Zimmerman verdict that all Americans felt on 9/11.
New Black Panther Party members are prepping for rallies and gatherings in the wake of the George Zimmerman murder trial, but are coy on whether violence, riots and other chaotic outbursts are potential — or welcome — offshoots of those events.
Zimmerman prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda invoked Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech in his closing arguments, arguing that star witness Rachel Jeantel should be taken seriously, regardless of her "unsophisticated" testimony, National Review Online first reported.
George Zimmerman prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda reportedly mislead the jury during his closing arguments Thursday afternoon, when he incorrectly told the jury that the defendant told neighbor and state witness Joe Manalo at the scene that he "killed" Trayvon Martin.
Racially insensitive language hurt some cast members’ reputations in the CBS game “Big Brother,” but it may not have been bad for television ratings.
Dozens of embarrassing posts were deleted Tuesday night from a Twitter account belonging to Rachel Jeantel, who has been described as a star witness in the George Zimmerman murder trial, The Smoking Gun reported.
President Obama came in with big promises. But he turned out to be a small man.
Police officers who responded minutes after the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin could not agree on whether George Zimmerman had a broken nose, but they all said the ex-neighborhood watch volunteer had cuts on his head, according to documents released Thursday.
The jailed neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing Trayvon Martin poses no threat to the community and should be released a second time on bail, his attorney said in a court motion released Monday.
Mr. Zimmerman said he shot and killed Martin, 17, in self-defense, and was found not guilty of murder in last weekend's verdict.
But according to Manalo's testimony, he never said Zimmerman told him he "killed" Martin.
