Springfield NAACP Chief: Zimmerman Verdict Shows Racial Challenges Remain


Rallies objecting to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin were held in three Illinois cities Saturday, but not in Springfield.  However, the head of the local NAACP chapter says she agrees with the sentiment. 

 

Appearing live Friday on 970 WMAY's Kramer Show, Teresa Haley said Martin's death shows that young black men are often viewed suspiciously for no other reason that their color.  And she contends the verdict might have been different if Martin had been white, and Zimmerman was black.
