George Zimmerman gave a scathing review of the Sanford Police Department and accused its chief of engaging in a cover-up during a public meeting in January 2011.
Zimmerman's anger stemmed from the case of Sherman Ware, a black homeless man who was beaten by the son of a white police lieutenant.
Zimmerman's family has pointed to his efforts to "get justice" for Ware in response to people around the country who have accused him of racially profiling the 17-year-old.Zimmerman also
1) voted for Barack Obama and
2) tutored black children in his neighborhood
Researchable and legitimate source examples of Zimmerman's past history of working with and for blacks include:
- "He and a black friend opened up an insurance office in a Florida..."
- "He'd engaged in notably un-racist behaviour such as taking a black girl to his high-school prom..."
- "Not only does he have black relatives, he has reportedly donated his time to tutor black children."
- "He launched a campaign to help a homeless black man who was beaten up by a white kid."

Zimmerman is part "Black", though his African roots are a little further removed than those of Barack Obama.
Zimmerman has spent his time helping black children learn. He has organized a campaign to help a Black Man get the Justice the local Police were attempting to squash through a coverup.
Zimmerman is a real Community Organizer, and he has real roots in the Black American Community. Zimmerman grew up biracial and part-Black American.
Barack Obama does not have real roots in the Black American Community. Barack Obama's Father was not a Black American. He was an African. And, Barack Obama was not raised by his Father. He was raised by his white mother and his white Grandparents ... in Hawaii.
Barack Obama's experience with the Black American culture is the result of contrivance. He decided he would be a "Black man", so he immersed himself in the Black American community to learn to be a Black American by osmosis.
And Barack Obama's activism, his "Community Organizing" was learned in books about Socialism, taught by Professors at Columbia and Harvard, not born of the experience of a man living in the streets with the people, as were the Community Organizing activities of George Zimmerman.
In short, Barack Obama is a bourgeois Community Organizer, while George Zimmerman is the real thing
