 “[A] pathetic, self-serving group of racists… advancing their purely racist agenda.” He later adds that “all members of Congress should be ashamed of the Congressional Black Caucus, as should be their constituents.” And finally: “They are truly a disgrace to all Americans.”

Zimmerman on the NAACP:

 “[S]imply promotes racism and hatred for their own, primarily finical, interests” and “without prejudice and racial divide, the NAACP would simply cease to exist.”

Zimmerman on NAACP President Benjamin Jealous:

 “[W]hat I would expect of a racist.”

Zimmerman on Trayvon Martin’s funeral director:

 A “racial activist and former head of the local NAACP.”

Zimmerman on Benjamin Crump, Natalie Jackson and Darly Parks, attorneys for Travyon Martin’s family:

“The scheme team.”
