Or dumb azzes either because he has a Peruvian mother. Even  some people in the media have no idea of the differences between race, ethnicity and nationality. Many use them synonymously.

Racists, dumb azzes and the uneducated...some do not get it, others do not want to get it.

If you do not realize this, then you do not realize that if white people were racist and on the jury they would have found him guilty.
