Jesse Lee Peterson, Conservative Black Activist: Zimmerman Trial Not About Race

The Blaze reports:

The Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, president of the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny (BOND), a conservative nonprofit, made some contentious statements on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” on Thursday. In addition to lambasting Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for inserting race into Trayvon Martin’s death and George Zimmerman’s subsequent trial, he called the 17-year-old shooting victim a “thug.”

“This case was not about race at all and what happened –  you have the race-hustlers and poverty pimps like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and others who turned it into a race issue in order to gain power and wealth,” he charged.
Peterson also targeted President Barack Obama, calling his past comment about Martin (“You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”) “insane.”
These statements, he said, were intended to “incite the anger of black Americans and others.”

Transcript here. Here are some quotes:
MORGAN: You've said some pretty contentious things about all this. What is your view about the verdict? 

PETERSON: Well, first, this case was not about race at all and what happened, you have the race hustlers and poverty pimps like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, and others who turned it into a race issue in order to gain power and wealth. And you also have Barack Obama jumping into it by saying that if he had a son, he would look just like Trayvon Martin. And I thought that was insane for him to make that type of comment. He only did that because he want to incite the anger of black Americans and others. 

I've -- this case is about overturning Stand Your Ground laws and also about more gun control law, getting more gun control law passed, and it's about Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and NAACP and others using black Americans by dividing the races, intimidating white people in order to gather more power or get more power and wealth. 
MORGAN: You really think George Zimmerman would have looked at a young white man in a hoodie and thought the same thing, that this guy is potential trouble? 

PETERSON: Well, George Zimmerman would have done whatever it took to protect himself. It didn't matter to George Zimmerman the color of the man. And this notion that Trayvon Martin was some little innocent kid tiptoeing through the tulips and George Zimmerman had nothing else to do but to go out and kill him is a lie. 
It's an absolute lie. And I think that for the people to mislead -- that are in control of this issue to mislead America in that manner, are very dishonest people. Trayvon Martin was a thug. His parents know that. You know that. I know that. And -- 
PETERSON: Trayvon Martin -- Trayvon Martin was an example of what happens when these black boys and girls are raised in single parents household and if Trayvon Martin was such a good little kid tiptoeing through the tulips, why did they work so hard to keep his history out of the courtroom during the trial? 

If he was a good guy, they should have -- they would have been happy to present that evidence, but they kept it out because they know or they knew that Trayvon Martin was a thug and that's what it's all about. He was a pot-smoking, he had been thrown out of school several times -- 
PETERSON: Well, you know, there were pictures on his Facebook page of Trayvon Martin carrying -- having -- holding on to a gun, pot in front of him. This wasn't a good little kid. And --
MORGAN: Where was the evidence that he was a dangerous thug? 

PETERSON: He would -- he had been in trouble before. He was not some little innocent kid tiptoeing through the tulips. 
End quote.
What Peterson said is true. I saw the photos, I saw the reports that most of the mainstream liberal biased media didn't bother with. Morgan didn't do his due diligence. He needs to quit his daytime job.
Angelic Martin's Twitter handle.(caution: profanity from this innocent child)
More evidence that Martin was far from being some innocent child. He was so bad that his mother asked him to move out of the house.

IT'S WRONG TO SHIFT THE FOCUS. Here's the incident: Zimmerman called the Police about SUSPICIOUS Trayvon. The Police told him they are on their way to handle the matter and that Zimmerman (WHO WASN'T IN UNIFORM) should stop chasing Trayvon, but Zimmerman (WHO WASN'T IN UNIFORM) disobeyed the Police and kept on chasing Trayvon.

What i don't know is this: who first committed assault on the other (i.e., who first made an attempt to physically touch the other)?
