The Civil Rights Case Against George Zimmerman

"We don't think you have to say n-*-*-*-e-r to t-r-i-g-g-e-r civil rights charges," said Jealous, citing actions by Zimmerman that signal a habit of racial profiling. "We have recently delivered 1.7 million signatures to the DOJ from a very diverse range of people in this country who feel the same way, with another 219,000 from Color of Change."
