Question for ABC: Exactly what style guide requires the use of “Puerto Rican” for a juror and “white Hispanic” for a defendant? Those are the terms used in an ABC News article on Juror B29, a minority member of the “all-white Zimmerman jury” we’ve heard so much about.

All six of the jurors were women and Maddy, 36, who is Puerto Rican, was the only minority to deliberate in the racially charged case. Zimmerman, 29, was a white Hispanic and Martin, 17, was black.

And not to get too picky, but George Zimmerman “was” a white Hispanic?

Even the New York Times conceded that “white Hispanic” was “not very commonly used” before Zimmerman became a household name. But “screw that,” said ABC. We’ll use “white Hispanic” when it helps further the narrative of a “racially charged case” and you’ll like it!

To close this out, let’s let Larry Elder voice the pressing question on all of our minds:

  • V the K

    Obsession over race has served this country so well over the centuries.

    /sarc

    • Dee

      We would almost always have complete justice if not for this race obsession! The only people that wouldn’t benefit would be Sharpton, Jackson, and any demonrat trying to get into office!

    • IMPEACH_BOBO

      Yes ain’t that the truth !!!! Zimmerman was RAILROADED into a trial by the RACIST Angela Corey & Eric Holder, thank god these jurors did the right thing but I would admit I really didn’t have much faith that the jurors weren’t in on the RAILROADING too !!!! There was a reason Zimmerman was let go that night & that was because the police saw it as SELF DEFENSE, plain & simple !!!! Police Chief of Sanford was fired when he refused to press charges where none were warranted, so he was fired & the 2 RACIST took over & skipped the grand jury !!!! That was the first clue this was a RAILROADING & it just progressed from there !!!!!

      Except that case actually had witnesses backing up the defendant’s story…

        So did Zimmerman. On tape and in person.

          No witness or tape showed Martin attacking Zimmerman.

        There were witnesses. They were called by the prosecution and they corroborated Zimmerman’s story, hence his acquittal.

        Please keep your lies and bs to Huffpo and the like. They will believe anything over there.

        now you’re just making stuff up.. No witnesses?..

        since when?

        when you have nothing to back up your already made up mind?

        • Bathing Suit Area

          His defense was based on Trayvon Martin attacking him. No witness saw that happen.

          • Clete Torres

            Except the neighbor that testified that he heard a fight, came outside, saw le thug Trayvon “ground and pound” Martin and then called 911.

            Try to keep up, bathmat.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            Except that when questioned on the details, he said he never actually saw Martin hit Zimmerman.

        Um…try again Sherlock. Zimmerman had witnesses, they testified for the prosecution, but made the defendant’s case.
        Typical you have much to say about the Zimmerman trial, but didn’t watch any of it, or you’d have known about the witnesses.

    • TomJB

      No, Zimmerman, by his own admission, is guilty of homicide – the taking
      of another human being’s life. He is not guilty of murder – the
      unlawful taking of life – and this juror is one of the 6 in the world
      who should know that best.

  • Clete Torres

    You have to love this. It’s the clearest example yet of media malpractice.

  • PeterP

    Let me see if I got this right: George Zimmerman got away with murder but she had to acquit him because the State provided no evidence that he murdered anyone.” Lord have mercy on us all.

    • Clete Torres

      Exactly.

    • Rightturn

      It’s similar to how people say O.J. Simpson got away with murder. It’s similar to how people say Casey Anthony got away with murder.

      • Marilyn

        OJ did get away with murder since his defense injected race into the trial and made the DNA evidence look tainted. His lawyers caused reasonable doubt in the jurors’ minds. Casey Anthony did get away with murder but the prosecution failed to prove she did. These two were deliberate murders. George Zimmerman trial should not be compared to these two trials. It was self-defense not deliberate murder. Before knowing the facts, this trial brought racism from the media, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, The president and his attorney general. Most of the public went along with these instigators and ran with it w/o knowing the truth.

  • Kristy Patullo

    So I guess ABC will now be referring to Obama as white black. Yep, that’s ridiculous, too.

    • pdigaudio

  • waltermitty2012

    In the same interview, she insisted that this case was never about race, at least to her. When asked whether the case should have gone to trial, she said, “I don’t think so.” Adding, “I felt like this was a publicity stunt.”

    I’m not sure how she can think Zimmerman got away with murder if she thought the trial was just for show.

  • Damien Johnson

    Really though, I feel like when Trayvon got suspended for drugs he should’ve just been placed in juvie which, apparently, was where he was supposed to go. Had that happened instead of the Miami-Dade-ISD Police lying about their black crime rate, he wouldn’t have been in Sanford, and this never would’ve happened.

    • Txgirlinnh

      A very good point.

      • Damien Johnson

        Even if Zimmerman is guilty, the fact is the prosecution just couldn’t prove it and you can’t send somebody to jail based on feelings. A few years ago some kid stole my stuff (99 percent of it since replaced), and I KNOW that kid did it, but I didn’t pursue it because I knew I had no evidence to prove he did.

        • Txgirlinnh

          Exactly- our justice system cannot be run on emotions. I’m glad you were able to replace your belongings and were able to keep a cool head about it! Stuff is exactly that…just stuff. Hopefully he didnt get away with anything too meaningful to you though(I have a few things from my grandmother that if were stolen from me I’d be pretty crushed). As for that punk kid I’m a big believer in karma :)

          • Damien Johnson

            I guess not “Meaningful” in the traditional sense but basically he’d stolen the majority of my video games. They were meaningful to me because some of them I’d bought myself and I didn’t have much to begin with compared to other kids at the time. see, they turned up missing after he returned months later from being banned from my house to say he was going to pay me back the money he stole.*

            *Months prior to that, I’d discovered my christmas money was missing and I remembered seeing him in my drawer and he was the only other person in the house who would be able to take the money, so I knew he did it. then my mom finally told me that she had 6 dollars stolen from her purse, but she didn’t want to assume on this kid. Was I pissed off? You bet. Stealing 80 dollars in Christmas money from me was one thing. But stealing 6 bucks from mom’s purse? Oh yeah, that kid almost got knocked the blank out.

          • Txgirlinnh

            Given that he stole from your mom too, I admire your restraint. She clearly knows how to raise a level-headed gentleman. Dirtbags like that will eventually steal from the wrong person or get caught enough times to actually ‘do some time’ for it – of that you can be sure.

          • Damien Johnson

            Well, both my mom and my dad. I was fortunate enough to still have my dad even though my parents divorced. But thanks, I appreciate that. :) Heh, my eldest nephews were raised pretty good too. I told one of them and he was like “seriously, I’ll go jack him up.” Haha. It’s nice to have that type of loyalty.

    • neoface

      But, but, according to the LSM he is just an innocent child, getting skittles after getting the munchies from smoking pot. LSM is so laughable!

      • Damien Johnson

        both my parents believe it though, so. I always took a neutral stance to this whole issue. I’ve always believed that Zimmerman’s guilt hinged on whether or not he instigated, not on his right to self defense.

        • neoface

          Based on the facts presented, Zimmerman was just doing his job, it was Martin who started the altercation by confronting Zimmerman. Since Zimmerman had the gun, if it was his intention to hurt or scare Martin he would have brought out his gun, the gun didn’t comes out until he felt his life was in danger. Unfortunately the media has reported the story with a bias from the get goes. Zimmerman never had a fair shake, and although he was acquitted, the media will make him pay for rest of his life. There are people who want to kill him, although he went through the due process found to be innocent. Not sure how killing him or hurt others will change the outcome.

    Sooooo…this Puerto Rican woman feels guilty for not convicting the white Hispanic of second degree murder for which there was not enough evidence to prove presented in a trial that should’ve never seen a court room in the first place because it was all a publicity stunt? Got it. Good luck with making the rounds on tv and your new book deal, Juror B29!

    • TomJB

      My bet also is she wants to cash in on being on the jury with a book, but is trying to proactively immunize herself to the verbal (and possibly) physical retribution from the race mongers by making these ridiculous statements.

      Will her angle be that the non-black, non-hispanic ubermenschen whites on the jury pressured her into voting not guilty?

  • floridaobserver

    Remember, I think it was Donna Brazile during the Clinton days maybe, who described a person of color from Africa as “an African-American African”. Nearly fell off the couch with that one. Idiots, all of them. She nearly choked when she said it as how DO you describe an African who may be white or who may be black? Idiots.

You guys are digging a deep hole.

  • aztectrumpet

    “Zimmerman concedes he shot and killed Martin in Sanford on Feb. 26, 2012, but maintains he fired in self-defense.

    “That’s where I felt confused, where if a person kills someone, then you
    get charged for it,” Maddy said. “But as the law was read to me, if you
    have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can’t say he’s
    guilty.” ”

  • Just Another Guy

    I’d like to point out that she had decided to look to convict, apparently even before being seated on the jury.
    Therefore she lied when she said she’d be impartial, though she had to eventually vote not guilty.

    But then, she’s from Chicago…lying is as natural as the day is long..based on today’s most famous Chicagoan, Barack Obama.

  • frogmouth

    Like it or not, there ARE white Hispanics and black Hispanics. Hispanic is NOT a race (at least according to the US Census Bureau), but white and black are races.

    • Citizen Loring

      True. I guess I’m a “ginger” Hispanic. Contrary to popular belief, most Hispanics are “white-Caucasian” Hispanics.

      Nevertheless, the media did not use that term to bring attention to that reality, they used it to stir up tension and fit their liberal narrative that calls for institutionalized political “correctness”.

      • Jefferson

        Most Hispanics are not White. Most Hispanics are Mixed Race. A whole lot of racial miscegenation went on in Latin America between Spaniards, Africans, and Amerindians. That is why on average Hispanics are darker than Non Hispanic Whites.

        Why don’t you pick up a book sometime.

        • Citizen Loring

          I’ve taken classes….and I’ve visited many countries in Latin America and toured Mexico. Most Hispanics are mixed race, but most of them are fairer skinned, not dark. Mestizos are European/indigenous mix. It’s not only Spaniards that is mixed with the indigenous in Latin America. There were alot of French and German too. The number of black is quite small. Many Hispanics in the us are mixed with Latino and non-Hispanic white. The amount of inter-marriages and children between Hispanic and non-Hispanic white is significantly higher than it is with other groups.

          • Jefferson

            Most Hispanics are not fair skin, as in the same skin color as a Non Hispanic White.

            Most Hispanics are closer to George Lopez in skin color than they are to George Burns.

            The majority of the Illegal Immigrants crossing the border into the U.S are not fair skin. They are Brown for the most part. Brown and poor.

            The vast majority of Hispanics to do not look like The Brady Bunch.

            Also you say the number of Blacks is quite small, talk about not you not picking up a book.

            Mexico may not have a large Black population, but plenty of other Latin American countries like Panama, Colombia, Brasil, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, The Dominican Republic, and Cuba do.

            All of those Latin American countries I mentioned participated in the Sub Saharan African slave trade.

            Sorry but most of Latin America is not some racially pure White Aryan paradise.

            The only place in Latin America that is predominantly White is Uruguay, the Southern region of Brasil, and Argentina.

            The rest of Latin America is one big pot of racial miscegenation.

    • Jefferson

      George Zimmerman is not a White Hispanic, because his Peruvian side of the family is not pure European. They have significant Amerindian and African ancestry.

      • frogmouth

        Never said he was. Never said he was a black Hispanic, either. However, most Hispanics from South and Central America are typically considered white. Cubans, Dominicans and others from the Caribbean (including Puerto Rico) typically have higher percentages of black ancestry.

  • Spasmolytic

    If Zimmerman is a white Hispanic that means Obama is a white African American.

    By the Zimmerman media headlines logic Obama is a black white. Apparently the dad gets first billing. Hey, my son is a white asian.
