    First of all you white ppl on here who are commenting would never be able to understand this. Why are yall even commenting? Yeah this racial tragedy isnt about u all. But 9/10 are! Obama had every right to comment about it. He is the president. Get over the fact he's black & is in the "white" house. My goodness! Zimmerman needs to be shot in the chest to see how it feels. He needs the death sentence. First for saying those racial slurs on tape. Two for following him when told not to. Three he shouldve fought back once he felt Trayvon was unarmed.shooting him is what he wanted to do. He enjoyed it. He thought this was gonna get swept under the rug. No! He thought his parents werent serious about this murder! oh yes! Zimmerman needs to be under the jail. And u who let him go free need to rot in hell too!

    This is a little late, but what the hell does 'if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon,' have to do with any of this? Another stupid, pointless comment directing people away from the actual issue. No one gives a shit what your son would look like...what a dumb ass, irrelevant comment...sheesh.

    okay black white it doesnt matter yes it was wrong but this is a race war now, HE ISNT EVEN WHITE no i am not defending him i firmly believe that murder was way out of line and he does deserve a sentence but what about the four witnessess and one man yes was black, this is turning out to be a huge thing but what about other murders around the united states my neice was murdered by a mexican man but does that make me want to hate mexicans and kill them all and start a race war. WHY DONT YOU PEOPLE PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON THE WORLD, did you guys know there are men selling goat milk getting arrested and tortured. THANK THE GOVERNMENT FOR THIS BULLSHIT, Im not saying this case is bullshit, but the fact that they are arresting people for goat milk vs murder come on now, they are doing this to start a race war people

    - First I Would Like to say That Trayvon Was My Older Cousin , He Ment Soo Much To Me . iStill Cry At Night Hoping He'll Come Over And Play 2K12 with My Brother . This Is More Than A Tragedy , iWish People Wuld See This For What It Really Is . Zimmerman Is A Man Who Cant Be Trusted For His Word . If You Murdered My Cousin In "Self-Defence" WHY Are YOU In Hiding ? If Your Shit Is Legit You Shuld Even Worry About Anything Else But proving Your Word . But NO You Had To Lie And SAy My Cousin , Attacked You : O Im sorry But Nobody Was Born Yesterday To Believe That Bullshit . *Sigh* iJust Want Justice For My Cousin , Because Of Him . He Never Got To Live His Life . iLove You Tray , You Will Forever Be In My Heart . -Laya

    If Obama had a son he would look like the real father.

    @jennifer- I remember that case as well. there are many more like that. it's sad that the only time a black youth's death is worth protesting for is when a white holds the gun. following this case- the reasons for the anger keeps changing. the latest reason is a polished answer of the wrongs of the ( STAND YOUR GROUND) law. it has a more reputable spin. just a more polished self serving version of hate.

    Compared to the Trayvon Martin case I think you will be interested in the rather different reaction from Obama to the brutal killing of two white British tourists by another 17-year-old black kid in Florida:
