Protesters protest the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman Demonstrators outside the Seminole County Courthouse react after hearing the verdict of not guilty in the trial of George Zimmerman in Sanford, Fla.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

"When Zimmerman was acquitted today, it wasn’t because he’s a so-called white Hispanic. He’s not. It’s because he abides by the logic of white supremacy, and was supported by a defense team—and a swath of society—that supports the lingering idea that some black men must occasionally be killed with impunity in order to keep society-at-large safe."
