New Documents Do Not Show Zimmerman As Racist

SANFORD, Fla. —Witnesses interviewed to provide authorities with insight to George Zimmerman’s character did not indicate that he was the least bit racist.

Zimmerman, 28, is charged with second-degree murder in the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin, 17, at a gated community in Sanford.

He has maintained his innocence, claiming the killing was in self-defense.

FBI agents interviewed more than 30 people but found no one who said Zimmerman was racist or even showed biases or prejudices toward people because of their religion.
