When Benjamin Crump, legal counsel for Trayvon Martin’s family, interviewed with the Orlando Sentinel last month, he revealed that he believed Martin’s race plays a factor in how the alleged murder is being handled. “Nobody believes that if you make Trayvon Martin white [and Zimmerman black], there’s no way he would not be arrested,” Cump said. ”And that’s the unfortunate and tragic truth of the matter. There is a double standard. That’s why race is involved in this case.” Crump went on to add that coveted race factor in the case is the “elephant in the room.”
Mark O’Mara, lead attorney for George Zimmerman, fired back at Crump’s remarks via a website set-up by Zimmerman’s defense team and denied that race plays a factor in the case.
