Bill Cosby says that the Trayvon Martin tragedy was not about race … Not about whether the shooter was a racist …
Actor/comedian Bill Cosby has weighed in on the death of Trayvon Martin and the murder charges against George Zimmerman. Cosby stated that the focus should not be on race, but instead on guns. Hmm, what would Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the New Black Panther Party and the liberal MSM have to say about that? Yesterday on CNN, Bill Cosby said that they Trayvon Martin tragedy is more about guns than about race. Whether one believes it is even about guns, what is most interesting is that Bill Cosby does not believe this was a hate crime and that Trayvon Martin was not profiles by Zimmerman as the prosecution claims.
Actor and comedian Bill Cosby says the debate over the killing of Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood watch volunteer should be focused on guns, not race.
In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” aired Sunday, Cosby said calling George Zimmerman a racist doesn’t solve anything. Cosby says the bigger question is what Zimmerman was doing with a gun, and who taught him how to behave with it.
From the CNN interview, “State of the Union” that the Trayvon Martin tragedy is more about guns than race. Bill Cosby said the issue isn’t whether a shooter is racist or not. “If he’s scared to death and not a racist, it’s still a confrontational provoking of something,”

“I’m a person who believes that gun, the gun, all around this United States, when a person has a gun, sometimes their mind clicks that this thing is — it will win arguments and straighten people out,” Cosby tells Candy Crowley. “And then in the wrong hands, in the wrong mind, it’s death, it’s wounding people.”
“I also believe that when you tell me that you’re going to protect the neighborhood that I live in, I don’t want you to have a gun,” Cosby said. “I want you to be able to see something, report it, and get out of the way, because you happen to be a part of the neighborhood. I don’t want you to get hurt. And I don’t want you to hurt anyone.”
Sadly, those who have made racist and using the race card a cottage industry have done the same with the George Zimmerman shooting of Trayvon Martin. George Zimmerman was arrested and indicted on second degree murder charges; however, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz stated that the Zimmerman arrest affidavit was irresponsible and unethical.
