Trayvon MartinThe death of Trayvon Martin has sparked a fury in most corners of Black America and each detail is read eagerly by many people who are fiercely advocating for George Zimmerman, 28, the White-Hispanic neighborhood watchman who shot him in the chest at point-blank range, to be tried for his murder.

White America is saying not so fast.

According to a new Gallup/USA Today poll, 51 percent of Black people said Zimmerman is “definitely guilty,” while only 10 percent of White people believe he’s guilty. Approximately 20 percent of both Whites and Blacks believe that Zimmerman is “probably guilty.”

The strict racial lines in the sand are apparent in other areas of the poll as well.

73 percent of Black people believe that Zimmerman would have been arrested if Trayvon had been White. Interestingly enough, only 33 percent of non-Hispanic White people believe that race plays a part in how the gunman is being treated.

Not only does White America predominantly believe in Zimmerman’s innocence, 43 percent of them say believe that there is too much media coverage surrounding the case — compared to only 16 percent of Black people who feel the same, according to an earlier Pew Research Center poll.

Over 3,00o adults were polled by Gallup, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
