Robert Zimmerman Jr., the brother of George Zimmerman, responded quickly Friday after President Obama’s surprise statement about the Trayvon Martin case.
“The president is reinforcing much of the mythology surrounding the case,” Zimmerman told The Daily Caller via phone immediately following the President’s afternoon statement.
While he disagreed with Obama’s characterization of some of the facts of the case, he agreed that much work needs to be done to improve the lot of black youth across the country.
President Obama said in the press conference, “When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.”
