Title: Defense Team: RACE AND THE GEORGE ZIMMERMAN CASE

O'Mara is definitely being more assertive and it looks like he's targeting Team Crump.

The real “elephant in the room,” however, is that race should not be a factor in the George Zimmerman case, and should never have been made one.

However, if the FDLE conclusions point to an adequate, non-racially biased investigation from the Sanford Police Department, and if the FBI investigation concludes that George Zimmerman did not violate Trayvon Martin’s civil rights by acting in a racially biased way, then Mr. Crump should acknowledge that the George Zimmerman case is not about race, and he should focus his efforts on a case where a black man has been wrongfully arrested for murder in a clear case of self-defense, and he should champion that cause.

Mark O'Mara is batting 1.000 with his media strategy after some early missteps. He summed it up for me here:

Mr. Crump is right in talking about the George Zimmerman case when he says: “It shouldn’t be about race.” But by projecting race onto the George Zimmerman case, Mr. Crump is pinning a supposed civil rights victory on a Zimmerman conviction. The problem is that by associating a Zimmerman conviction with a civil rights victory, Mr. Crump has framed a scenario where a Zimmerman victory in a Self-Defense Immunity Hearing or a Zimmerman acquittal will represent a civil rights defeat. That is inappropriate and dangerous to us as a nation.

It seems that MOM is suggesting to Team Crump that if one of the parties to the case isn't claiming racial animus in the courtroom, then a non-party shouldn't be claiming it through public discourse.
 
Now where have we heard that before?  8)
