What kind of people would use the weekend before Halloween as an excuse to dress up as an infamous acquitted murderer and his black teenage victim? The Smoking Gun has the answer and it will not surprise you: white dudes in Florida.
Greg Cimeno, the 22-year-old Cape Coral bro dressed as George Zimmerman, commented on the photo, “Anything for the laugh.” William Filene, the 25-year-old in Trayvon Martin blackface, pleaded guilty over the summer to felony auto theft (mugshot here). Caitlin Cimeno, the woman in between them who posted the photo on Facebook, has used social media to comment on race before:
In August, Cimeno also posted a photo of an African American girl wearing a t-shirt reading “Black Girls Rock.” In her accompanying caption, Cimeno wrote, “First of all, sorry Hun but mommy lied to you & secondly if I was wearing a shirt that said something like the truth ‘white girls rock’ I would be stared at and called a racist cracker.”
Cinemo, whose Instagram is now private, includes the bio, “Stand For What a You Believe In And Make Sure You Stand Your Ground.”
