Verdict watch - The jury is now deciding the fate of former neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman.
The court has heard from a parade of characters over the past two weeks.
One face that has stood out from the background, a young African-American woman, who's been quietly observing and assisting George Zimmerman's attorneys throughout the trial.
Her very presence in the courtroom has been controversial.
David Mattingly is OutFront with her story.
a black person should not be able to defend someone who is an enemy of obama. An enemy of obama is an enemy of the USA. Why does G. Zimmerman hate freedom?
I am white and I think she is hot. No racism here. An educated attractive black woman? Awesome!
What's up with these interns this days – taking the law into their own hands? An intern connected to the Asiana Airline crash went beyiond his/her capacity and passed erroneous information that now committed the TV Station to a lawsuit. And now this intern rendering her own verdict about Zimmerman. Why can't she just say, "I am just an intern doing my job"
I would trust girl a lot better that the civil ingineer for TM which wich didn't impress me at all. I see a lot of good things coming on this girls way!!! Good luck to her!!!!!
On the contrary it shouldn't matter what race you are or who you are defending as long as you belive that person, just some of us think one way or another doesn't give us right to assume anything for other persons. I don't believe in racisim but I know some do and the worst part is that is the way kids get educated instead of bringing them out of ignorance and educated in the right way.
If this girl is walking down the white neighborhood, all white men will be standing on their knee asking her to marry them.
I am racist too, by the way. I hate the men of all races (including my own) and love beautiful intelligent women.
I work with black people with same agenda she has. You have to get in where you fit in, even if it means turning your back on your own to get ahead in life. But once you leave, it's hard to come back and be accepted.
Not aware of her own race, culture or where she came from. Basically she blind to reality. No other race would defense if the case were a different race; especially Hispanic.
She is a very naive or a ms-educated black women who is doing everything and anything she can or step on anyone to enhance her career opportunity, and her friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, husband, family members and coworkers better watch their backs when dealing with her cause a person like her can never be trusted!
@trueletterson.... Zimmerman is Hispanic, not white... Even if he is half white, he is still Hispanic... Obama is half white too.. But self recognizes as black. have you looked in the mirror in regards to what you grandmother used to call " a educated fool"?
Zimmerman is white his parents are of European descent!
While I agree, you obviously do not know what Hispanic means.
Zimmerman's mother is Peruvian of African, Native, and European descent. Zimmerman is multi-racial and probably could have been accepted into the NAACP prior to the killing of Martin.
White people work at the NAACP all the time.
His mother is Peruvian, father is white.
More power to this young lady I wish her success in her career her ticket has been punched, she said that before she accepted the volunteer position she asked lead defense attorney Mark O'Mara [a white man] if Zimmerman [ a white man] was racist, she asked a white man if another white man was a racist go figure no disrespect in this instance she is what my grandmother use to call a educated fool.
trueletterson, she's educated enough to know what racism is and what it isn't, a lesson you should probably read up on. Racism is saying a non-black man killed a black man and the non-black man should be convicted simply because he's non-black, or simply because that's how black people think that's the way it should be. THAT is racism. And the racist label lies squarely on whoever thinks that's the way it should be.
And you think you are learned and educated?
Exactly what she appears to be. Mind twisted. Some of my family members are that way-the younger ones.
True I think mind twisted is more like it they have been taught it's ok to sell them self to the devil just for "success" without understanding what success really is then when reality hit them in the face at about age 40 after they have thrown everyone under the bus and have been everybody hoe and they don't have the corner office then they want to blame others
