Bag’s Take-Away:
This is a pool photo of George Zimmerman and his lead counsel Mark O’Mara a Zimmerman’s hearing on his motion to delay trial February 5, 2013. I found it interesting that both men have gotten overweight since their intro to the American public (it’s not just the camera angle that enlarges O’Mara). And in this country, “overweight” means disintegrate. 
Here’s O’Mara at his first news conference. Maybe the message isn’t about my body image-centric viewpoint, but from the idea that when justice has been delayed long enough for you to get huge, it’s been delayed enough. The judge denied Zimmerman’s motion at the hearing.

I would love to ask Getty photographer Joe Raedle if the combination of Obama’s face with that of Trayvon Martin was as oddly subtle in real life as it appeared in his photograph. 
It’s a very clever shirt.

George Zimmerman’s confirmed website has very little information on it, but it does have an “album” with a photo montage. The only problem is that the graffiti photo on the lower left was tagged on Ohio State University’s  Frank W. Hale Jr. Black Cultural Center. Of course, we don’t know if Zimmerman was aware of that fact.

Bag’s Take-Away:

Will we ever look at hoodies the same? Even if the weather recommends them?

It was somewhat chilly across the US yesterday so light jackets, with or without hoods, are a practical choice whether you are seeing a family member off to sea in Norfolk or attending a Santorum rally in Wisconsin. It’s notable that the women saying farewell to a family member deploying to the Arabian Gulf are black and wearing hoodies. Are they making a statement or, mostly likely, just trying to keep warm? If the main point is that it’s impossible to say right now, the image evokes compassion.  (But then, not sure what to say about the guy at the Santorum rally.)

From the Million Hoodie March. The reason I like this photo is that it does EXACTLY what it is supposed to do: capture the white fear of the hooded black male. 
I compare it to the iconic 1968 Olympics photo of John Carlos and Tommy Smith because it captures white angst and puts it on the world stage for examination.
