George Zimmerman's Family Member Implies AG Eric Holder Is Racist
The family of George Zimmerman has stepped up its public defense, and one relative has sent a highly critical letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking why the Department of Justice has not arrested members of the New Black Panther Party movement. The group has publicly put out a bounty for Zimmerman's capture. In the letter, the family member says, "you have chosen not to arrest these individuals based solely on your race."
"I am writing you to ask you why, when the law of the land is crystal clear, is your office not arresting the New Black Panthers for hate crimes?" the family member wrote to Holder.
"Even though many feel that great strides have been made in race relations (we do have a black president), situations such as this make me wonder if this is indeed the case. There is the appearance of racism in every way this has been handled, and it is not coming from the supporters of George Zimmerman.
The family members writes, "you have chosen not to arrest these individuals based solely on your race."
