How this will help

Booker T. Washington (April 5, 1856 – November 14, 1915) was an African-American educator, author, orator, advisor to presidents of the United States and former slave.  One of his quotes is below.

"There is a (small) class of ... people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well."  

The above quote is evidence that over 120 years ago, former-slave Booker T. Washington knew Al Sharpton, the current news media and the current Democrat Party.

George Zimmerman is Hispanic/White.  The media and race-baiters accuse Zimmerman's White half of killing Trayvon Martin. 

If Zimmerman was African-American/White, which half would they accuse of killing Trayvon? 

Or would the media/race-baiters be quiet, since Obama's the same mix...
