Robert Zimmerman, the father of George Zimmerman who shot unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, has spoken out on the tragedy, saying that he has never seen so much hate.

“I never foresaw so much hate coming from the president, the congressional black caucus, the NAACP [National Association for the Advancement of Colored People,] every organization imaginable is trying to get notoriety or profit from this in some way, but there’s so much hate. I’ve never been involved in hate, George hasn’t, it’s really unbelievable,” the elder Zimmerman told Fox 35.

See story below the video.





George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, shot Martin inside a gated community on Feb. 26, claiming the act was in self-defense and that Martin attacked him, repeatedly bashing his head into a concrete walkway.

Police haven’t arrested Zimmerman, inciting nationwide protests and outrage from citizens, politicians, and entertainers who argue that the act was racially motivated.

“What’s your message to them . . . to the president, to the NAACP, to all those people who you are saying are just out there . . .,” Fox host asked Zimmerman.

“I just hope at one point everyone will go beyond the hate that they have.”
