Letter: Race issues should be moderated

Re: Zimmerman verdict article (Daily News, Sunday). I did not have an opinion one way or the other on this tragedy. I had trust in the legal system — however why does the media call this man a “white hispanic?” Does this mean we now call President Barack Obama a “white African-American?”

Why does the media continue to write that Mr. Zimmerman described the young man as black? He only cited ethnicity when asked. Stop trying to incite race issues.
