Members of the New Black Panther Party, the same group that intimidated white voters in front of a Philadelphia polling place on Election Day in 2008, is offering a $10,000 reward for the 'capture' of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who fatally shot black teen Trayvon Martin in central Florida last month.

Clearly not all of the facts are out in this tragic case. I'm waiting for Attorney General Eric Holder, the man who dropped the charges against the neo-Panthers in the Philly case in 2009, to denounce this vigilante behavior.
Yesterday racism-inciter Jesse Jackson added to the frenzy by declaring that "blacks are under attack."
The reward was announced at a protest, one that included a chant of "freedom or death."
And if that wasn't bad enough, the black racist director Spike Lee tweeted Zimmerman's address on Twitter (Twitchy). Donald Douglas uncovered one now deleted tweet that read:
"Ima get a group of niggas to KILL George Zimmerman ( the fat ass racist ass white man who killed Trayvon Martin ) ! He deserves to DIE !!!!— Couldnt Care Less (@Simply_Reiona) March 24, 2012"
Richard Milhous Obama's comments yesterday didn't help the matter. He could have led, asked everyone involved to let all the facts be known, and reminded America that Zimmerman is innocent until proven guilty. Instead, Obama made this about him and brought race into this, an area where pandering for votes should not come into play.
