However, a glitch arose when it was learned that Zimmerman had a Peruvian mother. By university and government diversity standards, he could be characterized as a “minority.” That bothersome fact threatened to undermine the entire hyped narrative of white-on-black crime.

Note that the media has so far not in commensurate fashion referred to President Obama as a “white African-American” even though he, too, had a white parent.
