Legendary comedian Bill Cosby says the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman case was not about racism, but rather “The prosecution did not tell the story well and they lost.”
The 76-year-old, who is a master story teller, tells the DomNnate Radio Show, “This racial stuff goes into a whole bunch of discussion which has stuff that you can’t prove … You can’t prove somebody is a racist unless they really come out and do the act and is found to be that.”
Cosby was adamant, “Let’s not go into a racial discussion unless we really have something there.”
George Zimmerman, a mixed race Hispanic, was a neighborhood watch captain in Sanford, Florida when he acknowledged he shot black teenager Trayvon Martin — who was described as “a suspicious person” — in self defense.
On July 13 he was found not guilty of second degree murder and manslaughter.
