Never one to hold his tongue, George Zimmerman’s outspoken brother Robert Zimmerman Jr. decided to give his two cents on the senseless murder of Australian athlete Chris Lane.

Amid comparisons between Lane and slain teen Trayvon Martin (who was shot and killed by the younger Zimmerman), Robert is suggesting that Lane’s murder is rooted in racism, even if one of the teen suspects is a white male.

“Mainstream media is side stepping the fact that one of the alleged murderers openly professed on social media to ‘hate’ white people.”

Read his full response to the Daily Caller below:

I remember in my brother’s case that many were unable to comprehend why George would have had a gun in the first place. George was of legal age to own a firearm and lawfully licensed to carry it in Florida. In this tragic “boredom shooting” situation with Mr. Lane it is simply taken for granted that these teenagers had firearm access to allegedly murder him. Mr. Lane was unarmed, he was jogging, he had his back turned to his alleged murderers.

 The only response I have seen from the self-proclaimed leadership of the black community has been Jesse Jackson’s “frown.” Mainstream media is side stepping the fact that one of the alleged murderers openly professed on social media to “hate” white people. Mr. Jones goes on to quantify that in his opinion 90% of white people are “nasty.” I have learned throughout the ordeal our family has endured that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton as well as the NAACP do not speak for most African-Americans. Not only do they have a serious credibility problem in my view, but patriotic African-Americans have long ago tossed out and rejected their playbook. Rather, I expect that before long these parties will find a way to turn the alleged killers into victims and profess that it is our fault as a society that is insensitive to the plight of minorities that this alleged slaying happened in the first place.

Was it racially motivated, or is the controversial Zimmerman trying to stir the race pot? Discuss…
