In the middle of an interview with George Zimmerman's defense attorneys in which Sean Hannity was trying to prove Zimmerman is not a racist, Hannity let his own feelings about African Americans slip when he said, "Didn't George Zimerman... take one to the prom?"
At about 3:35 in the video below, Hannity followed the Fox News meme of using the Zimmerman trial to racially smear President Obama. He asked attorneys Mark O'Mara and Don West, "What do you think about Eric Holder and the news of the day that they're considering... civil rights charges against George."
Predictably, O'Mara described Zimmerman as "without a racist bone in his body" and, at the same time, took a swipe at the Obama administration and African Americans by saying, "I think the suggestion that they're going to look at it is just placating those people who they want to placate to believe that there's still some investigation going on."
So Hannity responded:
Didn't George Zimmerman date a black woman, take one to the prom?
O'Mara replied with an emphatic, "Yeah."
The two went on to discuss how Zimmerman mentored two young black children. I'm surprised they didn't say that some of his best friends are black.
If Trayvon were to have attacked Zimmerman he would have won. I will explain why. According to Zimmerman Trayvon could not be seen in the darkness and if Trayvon yelled out to Zimmerman as he claims that means Trayvon could see him. IF he could see him, then why not jump him from behind and slam his face in the sidewalk? At this point Trayvon could easily beat up Zimmerman, grab his gun if he wanted to, and then shoot him.
Zimmerman’s story contradicts the idea that Trayvon jumped him. After all, Trayvon yelled out to him and gave him time to turn around and answer him. Hardly the act of a street punk trying to get the jump on someone. Trayvon also had his unopened Arizona Watermelon Fruit Cocktail can that he could have used to smash into Zimmerman’s face or head. Trayvon never used it.
Trayvon’s actions and the events of that evening lead up to the fact that Trayvon was the one followed and confronted.
