The New Black Panther Party is offering a $10,ooo reward for the capture of George Zimmerman, the shooter who shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin dead, CNN reports.
“It is a very trouble time in the United States of America,” a member of the New Black Panther Party said in a televised statement. “We are in the era of so-called post-racial harmony with all people. But we black people are being murdered all over America and we get the same treatment time and time again. So, we’re saying to President Obama you gotta do your job on this one buddy.”
