While his lawyer, Mark O’Mara, says his client is not racist, Zimmerman’s MySpace page tells a very different story, the Miami Herald reports. The 7-year-old page, which his attorney says is legit, makes very offensive statements about Mexicans, features mug shots from prior arrests and lists some of his criminal charges. The Herald report renews what was a dying conversation about Zimmerman’s racial views.

Here are some of his views of our fellow Mexican citizens:
“I dont miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of the street, soft ass wanna be thugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin) dont make you a man in my book,” the 2005 Myspace page said. “Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!”
Another line suggested his friends went to jail and did not rat him out. “They do a year and dont ever open thier [sic] mouth to get my ass pinched.”
Really, Mr. Zimmerman? It seems like someone has some explaining to do. Doesn’t seem like he can play the “I’m half-Hispanic” race card now, can he?
