    Well what can one say?

    The individual at the center of the controversial Trayvon Martin shooting is a registered Democrat.

    George Michael Zimmerman, born Oct. 5, 1983, registered as a Democrat in Seminole County, Fla., in August 2002, according to state voter registration documents.

    It is unclear whether he voted for President Barack Obama in 2008.

    Some in the media have sought to blame Republican politicians and conservative activists for Martin’s death.

    “[Republican politicians] reinforce and validate old stereotypes that associate the poor and welfare as criminal behavior with African-Americans and people of color, calling us lazy, undeserving recipients of public assistance. In the case of Trayvon, those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences,” said MSNBC political analyst and Democratic fundraiser Karen Finney.

    According to the document, Zimmerman’s race is officially listed as Hispanic. The son of a white father and Peruvian mother, he has been described as a “white Hispanic” in most media reports.

    If it's ok with you.... I'll carry on defending the process, not the individuals.
