Finally, a ray of light in the Trayvon mess, as his mother speaks...... oops! never mind!

In this appearance on the Today show, Trayvon's mother seemed poised to start putting out the flames of racial warfare that the media has been helping to create and sustain, as they serve as the media arm of the radical racist organizations and leaders such as the Black Panthers, and MSNBC anchor Al Sharpton, but alas, no, she has since retracted her healing words.

Today Show:
This morning, when she was asked what she would like to say to Zimmerman, Fulton said on The Today Show that she wants an apology from him.

"I believe it was an accident. I believe it just got out of control and he couldn't turn the clock back," Fulton said, revealing her opinion about what happened the night her 17-year-old son was shot to death. "I would ask him, did he know that that was a minor, that that was a teenager and that he did not have a weapon."

Fulton said even if Zimmerman is found not guilty, the arrest achieves the goal of their campaign to raise awareness and bring him to justice.

"We just want him to be held accountable for what he done," Fulton said. "We are happy that he was arrested so that he can give his side of the story."

Her retraction and return to the racial hate template:
Fulton later issued a statement saying her comments were "mischaracterized"

"When I referenced the word 'accident' today with regard to Trayvon's death, in NO way did I mean the shooting was an accident," a statement attributed to Fulton said on her attorney's Twitter account.

"We believe that George Zimmerman stalked my son and murdered him in cold blood. The 'accident' I was referring to was the fact that George Zimmerman and my son ever crossed paths. It was an accidental encounter," the statement said. "If George Zimmerman hadn't gotten out of his vehicle, this entire incident would have been avoided. My son was profiled, followed and murdered by George Zimmerman, and there was nothing accidental about that."
