As part of a "Million Hoodies" project to show solidarity with slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin, people around the Web have been posting pictures of themselves wearing hoodies (Martin was wearing one the night he died). Well, it seems that Mother Jones reporter Adam Weinstein posted a picture of himself in a hoodie to a Facebook page where others are posting such pics, and the readers have become convinced that he's really George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin. This is a typical comment:
I wanna murder youI did find this comment interesting however:
With all of this hate showing him, what good are we really showing? Does showing him hatred really make us any different then what he did?All this over a photo?

Hey folks, that's not George Zimmerman -- that's me. I'm a reporter who's been covering Trayvon's killing for awhile, and I donned that hoodie last Friday to go on Geraldo's radio show and tell him that blaming the hoodie for what happened to Trayvon is crap. Check it out for yourself.
