On today's Your Call we'll talk about the aftermath of the acquittal. Zimmerman, a man who identifies himself as Hispanic, was charged with second degree murder in the killing of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida last year. The judge barred attorneys from using the words “racial profiling” during the trial. What role did race play? And how is this case affecting communities of color? What’s your reaction? It's Your Call with Holly Kernan and You.
