White Hispanic jurors will give him a lot of sympathy. Black jurors not too much.

Is anybody really going to be surprised about this?

This is why I would vote to convict, no matter what facts are presented.

Yes, one should not let facts get in the way.

jpeirpont, I imagine you know more black people than I and have discussed the case with some of them.

Have you come across one black person that would set Z free?

Not even those in the Black "Conservative" organizations I interact with say they support Zimmerman, and they tend to have many members who are "whitish" in opinions. Too many Blacks have experiences with overzealous agents of some sort to sympathize with GZ I imagine.

Everyone will hold different facts dear. That particular fact happens to be most important to me.

The law tells one which facts are pertinent to the case and which ones are not. We can ignore the laws but usually no good ever comes of that.

Statements like this are why I find the concept of a jury trial to be both terrifying and brilliant.

This, I have heard the same thing from black friends and acquaintances.

I can be flippant but I am dead serious when I say that I believe Z will get zero sympathy in the black community.

I think the county where he is being tried is approx 50/50 white and black. If the jury is anywhere near 50/50 black and white, I think it impossible that Z is acquitted. Perhaps a hung jury.

It only takes one for a mistrial.... what are they going to do, keep trying him?

Maybe so, but my way is more American.
