Are Media Outlets Using A Deliberately Lightened Picture of Zimmerman To Make Him Look 'Whiter'?
Here's the by-now famous pic of George Zimmerman that went viral on the internet the past 2 weeks as the story of the TrayVon Martin shooting became a national news story:
But do a Google image search for 'George Zimmerman and this is what comes up:
Do you...uh....NOTICE anything there? The difference in skin tone between the various pictures?
Let's call up one of the lightened versions and put them side by side:
I can see blowing it up a bit in size making it more fuzzy, but how would that account for the change in the skin tone?
Almost every other version of the pic is a lighter version much, much lighter than the original, whiting out Zimmerman's skin tone.
Let's weigh in on this in the comments. What do you think? Deliberate or not deliberate?

I was going to point out, digitally copying a picture does not alter it's color or skin tone. You have to take it into a photo editor like Photoshop to make such changes. And from what I can see up on Google right now, there's at least 5-6 different versions of that original picture - some of them even change the back ground color.
