SANFORD — An Orlando lawyer said he does not believe George Zimmerman‘s shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was racially motivated.
CNN analyst Mark NeJame pointed to a black-and-white picture of a family of three, including a dark-skinned man he claims was Zimmerman’s great-grandfather.
He also identified a woman pictured standing above the man as Zimmerman’s grandmother, and a small child in the man’s arms as Zimmerman’s mother.
Speaking to News 13 Friday, NeJame said the photo was just one piece among many that led him to change his mind about whether Zimmerman was racially profiling Trayvon Martin.
“If President Obama says his son would have looked like Trayvon Martin, then if you look at these pictures, his grandparents and great-grandparents would have looked like George Zimmerman’s grandparents and great-grandparents,” NeJame said during an appearance Thursday on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight.”
