The social media blitz surrounding the Trayvon Martin case continues as a MySpace page from seven years ago belonging to George Zimmerman surfaced, revealing the embattled neighborhood watchman has friends of many races, but also that he has made disparaging comments about Mexicans and his former girlfriend who he calls a “h--.”
The page called “only to be king again” has been verified as Zimmerman’s by his attorney Mark O’Mara, the Miami Herald reports.
On the page, Zimmerman has photos of him and his friends, some of whom are Black, and two blog entries about his prior brushes with the law, including a domestic violence incident from 2005.
“Im still free! The ex h-- tried her hardest, but the judge saw through it! Big Mike, reppin the Dverse security makin me look a million bucks, broke her down! Thanks to everyone for checkin up on me! Stay tuned for the A.T.F. charges.....” Zimmerman wrote.
The woman Zimmerman is referring to is his ex-fiancée, who pressed charges against him for allegedly pushing her during an argument at her home.
In addition to the comments about his prior legal trouble, Zimmerman shared his excitement about moving from Virginia, making disparaging comments about Mexicans living in the state.
“I dont miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of the street, soft ass wanna be thugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin) dont make you a man in my book,” the 2005 MySpace page said. “Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!” he wrote.
Zimmerman has been charged with killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, an unarmed Black teen, in Sanford, Florida, on Febraury 26 while he was on patrol as a neighborhood watchman. Zimmerman claims the shooting was in self-defense.
Zimmerman’s defense team has decided recently to use social media to support his defense. A website has been set up to request donations, disseminate information and defend against fraudulent websites and Internet postings.
