Mr. George Zimmerman may have been acquitted of the second-degree murder charges of late Trayvon Martin, however he may not find much liberty in his regained freedom as he will be singled out as another kind of race.
Since the end of the trial that ruled in favor of Zimmerman, there have been posts, protests, comments, tribute songs to Trayvon all over the world.
In this touching Facebook post, Alex Fraser says Zimmerman will begin to understand “what it means to be a Black man in America:” Read below.
Dear George Zimmerman,
For the rest of your life you are now going to feel what its like to be a black man in America.
You will feel people stare at you. Judging you for what you think are unfair reasons. You will lose out on getting jobs for something you feel is outside of your control. You will believe yourself to be an upstanding citizen and wonder why people choose to not see that.
People will cross the street when they see you coming. They will call you hurtful names. It will drive you so insane some days that you’ll want to scream at the top of your lungs. But you will have to wake up the next day, put on firm look and push through life.
I bet you never thought that by shooting a black male you’d end up inheriting all of his struggles.
Enjoy your “freedom.”
A black male who could’ve been Trayvon Martin
