The case has had strong racial overtones from the start. Zimmerman is suing NBC Universal over the portions of the initial 911 call the network broadcast, saying the tape was edited to make him appear racist and that he was racially profiling Martin, and there were allegations Zimmerman used a racial slur during the 911 call (analysis of the tape never settled the matter).
