This verdict, finding Zimmerman Not Guilty has taken us much farther back than the 60's--it is a culmination and the resurrection of the Dred Scott Decision of 1857; "Negroes have no rights (now life) which the white man is bound to respect" 

and 
The Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 (a law that deputized and paid ANYONE who arrested and enslaved a black person they "SUSPECTED" of being, a run-away slave).
