Keep in mind that Martin Luther King, Jr was a preacher first.

Other than that, this case was not about race (color). It was about Florida's stand your ground law which should not have been applied to this case since Mr. Zimmerman left his vehicle against instructions and confronted Mr. Martin. Only Mr. Zimmerman knows what he did to create a situation that caused Mr. Martin to fight with him. Did he try to make a citizen's arrest? No one knows except Mr. Zimmerman and he certainly won't tell. When Mr. Zimmerman chose to leave his vehicle and confront Mr. Martin, the stand your ground law should have been declared null and void in this case. In fact, it should have been Mr. Martin's defense.
