Online Racism and Anti-Semitism in the Aftermath of Trayvon Martin Shooting

The fatal shoot­ing of Trayvon Mar­tin, who was killed by a neigh­bor­hood watch vol­un­teer, George Zim­mer­man, has led to a flurry of racist and anti-Semitic remarks from extrem­ists try­ing to exploit the inci­dent to fur­ther their own hate­ful views. The remarks have been directed at both the vic­tim and the shooter.
White suprema­cists are furi­ous that Zim­mer­man, whose mother is report­edly Latino, is being described as a white man by the main­stream media.
An exam­ple of a Stormfront

In an arti­cle posted to the white suprema­cist Coun­sel of Con­ser­v­a­tive Cit­i­zens (CofCC) Web site, the author asserted, “Each time you see a ‘main­stream’ news out­let rant about the Zimmerman/Martin case…ask your­self why the media is called Zim­mer­man a white man instead of a Latino. Ask your­self if you think the story is really news or is it agitation/propaganda designed to advance a polit­i­cal agenda.”

Sim­i­larly, posters to the white suprema­cist Inter­net forum Storm­front, expressed both racist and anti-Semitic views. For exam­ple, “Thule Seeker” asserted, “[Zim­mer­man] can do us another favor by get­ting his jew-bean ass thrown in prison. Every­one always blames Whites for being racist but now the shoe is on the other foot. It will be nice for jews, beans and/or jew­beans to see one of their own go to prison for the very thing that us Whites are always accused of.”

Another Storm­front mem­ber, using the name “Richard Nixon,” wrote: “The anti-white Jew media will still try to spin this in an anti-white angle. And, of course, Blacks will find an excuse to riot, loot, a [sic] wreak over­all havoc.”

On yet another white suprema­cist forum, Van­guard News Net­work, “Craig Cobb” wrote, “Ha ha the lying media calls a pos­si­ble jew spic mix a ‘white’ just like the annual DOJ UNi­form Crime Report files do! Prob­a­bly in about 10 more years George Zim­mer­man will be as White in Amer­ica as it gets–like our elite ver­sion of an Ice­landic pale blue eyed plat­inum blonde.”

Some white suprema­cists, while describ­ing Zim­mer­man in racist terms, lauded him for killing a black teen. On Storm­front, “Thin White Duke” argued, “Zim­mer­man should be praised as much as any mes­tizo in Amer­ica should. Putting white nation­al­ism aside for a moment, this man removed a vio­lent per­son from a neigh­bor­hood vol­un­tar­ily. If only we had more whites patrolling our neigh­bor­hoods and keep­ing the negroes in check like this mes­tizo did.”

Another Storm­front mem­ber, “Ref­er­ence,” asserted, “Let’s don’t get bogged down in Zimmerman’s eth­nic­ity. Zim put down negri­tude while his neigh­bor ran into the house, locked the doors and called 911 — a com­pletely use­less neigh­bor IMO.”
