The parents of the man charged for killing unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin have launched a website on which they’re asking for donations, alluding to conspiracy, and talking about race.
Visit robertandgladys.com if you’d like to support the man who shot dead a black child who was walking in the wrong neighborhood.
A message on the home page includes this request for cash:
Lastly, many people have recently asked how they can support my wife and I, either emotionally or financially. My wife and I have only requested prayers thus far and we have refused to accept any donations or payments whatsoever for any purpose. However, we fully realize that the peaceful, secure life we once knew is now just a memory. Therefore, I am providing a link for those supporters who would like to leave us a personal message or contribute to our greatly increased living expenses, and our eventual relocation.
The statement also suggests that George Zimmerman’s arrest and prosecution are the result of a conspiracy — soon to be revealed:
Because George still is facing a murder charge, I can not freely discuss his pending case. However, I assure everyone that the time will soon come when the truth will be presented, both about February 26th and the unbelievable, highly orchestrated events following that date. These are events that should shock and alarm most Americans.
And it describes why George couldn’t possibly be a racist:
Additionally, [George’s grandmother] Cristina was the baby sitter for two young African American girls for many years. These girls, one now a physician and the other a PhD candidate, were very close to all the Zimmerman children. To all involved, race was never a thought that came to mind.
