However, currently most Hispanic Americans do not refer to themselves as "brown people", but as hyphenated Americans of a certain national origin.
Trayvon Martin saw a white man following him that night....
Gosh.. since you wanted to use wikipedia....
Dispatcher: Sanford Police Department. ... Zimmerman: Hey we've had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and there's a real suspicious guy, uh, [near] Retreat View Circle, um, the best address I can give you is 111 Retreat View Circle. This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about. Dispatcher: OK, and this guy is he white, black, or Hispanic? Zimmerman: He looks black. Dispatcher: Did you see what he was wearing? Zimmerman: Yeah. A dark hoodie, like a grey hoodie, and either jeans or sweatpants and white tennis shoes. He's [unintelligible], he was just staring... Dispatcher: OK, he's just walking around the area... Zimmerman: ...looking at all the houses. Dispatcher: OK... Zimmerman: Now he's just staring at me. Dispatcher: OK--you said it's 1111 Retreat View? Or 111? Zimmerman: That's the clubhouse... Dispatcher: That's the clubhouse, do you know what the--he's near the clubhouse right now? Zimmerman: Yeah, now he's coming towards me. Dispatcher: OK. Zimmerman: He's got his hand in his waistband. And he's a black male.
Dispatcher: How old would you say he looks? Zimmerman: He's got button on his shirt, late teens. Dispatcher: Late teens ok.
In his drug-addled condition, you don't really know what Trayvon thought he saw following him that night. He might have thought he was seeing 'de Wuller de Wust'.....
LOL and whoever he thought was following him gave him no license to attacked that person
LOL and whoever he thought was following him gave him
no license to attacked that person
Doesn't Stand Your Ground mean Trayvon Martin had no duty to retreat?
Doesn't that mean, that if he felt threatened,
by a strange man who had been following him in the dark,
that he could defend himself with a punch?
Why is that an "attack" rather than self defense?

Also if he was in fear he could have call 911 himself or told his girlfriend to do so
or call his father to come and get him or..........
A whole world of actions he could had taken instead of attacking Zimmerman.
It is and always has been perfectly lawful, moral, honorable n decent
for anyone to follow anyone else. The police n FBI do it all the time. That's no secret.
Once again, nobody was following anybody. Zimmerman ha lost sight of Martin, had carried on some sort of conversation with cops for several minutes, and that was more than enough time for Trayvon Martin to have walked home with nobody following him. The kid circled BACK to confront Zimmerman.
