The most controversial figure on the planet right now may very well be George Zimmerman. Did he murder Trayvon Martin or was it a legitimate act of self defense? We may never know the truth.
However, let’s clear up some of his background information. There have been rumors that he’s Muslim but he’s confirmed to be a Christian. And while many claim that he’s a white man, he’s actually biracial. His father is white and his mother is Hispanic. Thus, saying George Zimmerman’s race is white is not exactly accurate.
His true ethnicity is half white American and half Peruvian since his mom is from the country of Peru. It’s debatable what that mix should be classified as but many are going with “White Hispanic” — which is reasonable.
As for his nationality, George Zimmerman is American. He was born in the United States and is a full-fledged citizen.
