LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Nugent is certain to raise eyebrows by calling Trayvon Martin a "17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe." Nugent placed the blame for the shooting squarely on Trayvon Martin.

Nugent refers to Trayvon Martin's comment that Zimmerman was a "creepy ass cracker" as proof that he was racist. Cracker is widely regarded as a racial slur that blacks use to refer to whites.

Nugent called out the "race-baiting industry" for using the incident to further the careers of people like "Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the Black Panthers. He added President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to his list.

This is certain to rile many passion in people, but why not? Racism is an inherent part of the individual conscience, a product of our tribal instinct that dates back to primordial times. Fortunately, we have learned to master this instinct, and we understand that skin color and genetic profile have nothing to do with our humanity.

However, in times of distress, or fear, individuals can give way to more primordial modes of thinking and behave instinctively, speaking and acting without rational thought.

This is likely what was behind's Trayvon Martin's racist remark and his subsequent confrontation with Zimmerman.

Nugent said Martin acted out saying, "Trayvon had no reason not to attack, because it was the standard thug thing to do. See Chicago any day of the week." Nugent was referring to the "nearly 700 examples of this truism played out in Chicago in 2012 alone."

This refers to the hundreds of cases of black-on-black violence that grips the city as impoverished youth get a taste of wealth via illicit activity, then war with one another over control of such trade.

From the start, racism has been alleged by the left, however it is the liar that does not believe anyone else. Leftists cried racism without knowing that the only person to make a racist remark that day was Trayvon Martin.

People have also been ignorant of the facts that Zimmerman and his neighbors had reason to be alarmed to see strangers in their neighborhood. Zimmerman was patrolling because his neighborhood had experienced a rash of robberies.

Let us be clear. Trayvon Martin had every right to walk in a public space without being accosted. However, citizens can challenge one another. In Zimmerman's perception, Martin was behaving suspiciously. Zimmerman had the right to bring this to the attention of the authorities.

At some point, Zimmerman and Martin confronted one another. Zimmerman says he was attacked from behind as he was returning to his car. The prosecution claims Zimmerman chased Martin down. Unfortunately, it is difficult to verify whose account is true because only one of the pair survived to tell their tale. However, it is also likely that had Martin chose to flee on foot, he could have outrun Zimmerman.

Nonetheless, both men clashed and as Nugent explained:

"Within seconds, the suspect has overwhelmed George, has gained the advantage on top, pinning George to the ground, and further escalates the assault to deadly force by smashing George's face, breaking his nose, and violently slamming his skull onto the concrete with all his youthful athleticism.

"George screams frantically for help as Trayvon Martin pummels his face and head furiously, inflicting damaging and potentially life threatening wounds. Fearing for his life and about to lose consciousness at the hands of an enraged, violent attacker, George Zimmerman does what anyone who wishes to live would do, and he reaches for his concealed handgun, firing a single shot to neutralize the deadly force being wreaked upon him."

He adds, "This represents the purest form of self-defense there is."

Nugent summed up his editorial thus:

Here's the lesson from all this, America: Teach your children to not attack people for no good reason whatsoever. Conduct yourself in a responsible, civil manner, and everything will be just fine. Try to kill someone and that someone just may be exercising his or her Second Amendment rights and you could get shot. It's called self-defense, and it is the oldest, strongest and most righteous instinct and God-given right known to man.
