George Zimmerman's MySpace Page Had Disses Towards Mexicans, Women

Shooter facing second-degree murder charge has an unflattering social media record
Perhaps George Zimmerman is an equal opportunity hater. At least, that’s what one might conclude about his lingering social media presence.
The Miami Herald has discovered and confirmed a 7-year-old MySpace page that belonged to Zimmerman, on which he makes disparaging remarks about Mexicans and refers to an ex-girlfriend as his “ex-hoe.”
From Zimmerman’s page, titled “only to be king again:”
“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!”
Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, confirmed the page belonged to his client, and that it was abandoned in 2005, the Herald reports.
Last month, the Daily Caller reported on a MySpace page belonging to Zimmerman, with the screen name “datniggytb.”
Confirming the page was his client’s might be part of a new social media strategy O’Mara has adopted for image rehabilitation. Mainly, Zimmerman’s legal team wants to dispute voluminous claims that Zimmerman is a racist.
Questions about his attitude toward Africans Americans have dogged Zimmerman, since the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of Trayvon Martin suggest he racially profiled the Miami teen, before killing him in a north Florida gated community.
Zimmerman faces a second-degree murder charge in Martin’s death. The killing has also sparked a controversy over his “Stand Your Ground” self-defense claim, which has been unevenly applied in the state of Florida.
