George Zimmerman, the man who fatally shot and killed Trayvon Martin, has broken his silence by setting up a website entitled 'The Real George Zimmerman'.

On the site, he directs people to his paypal account so that he can pay his legal fees.

To prove it's really him, he wrote a statement:

I am the real George Zimmerman,

On Sunday February 26th, I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage. As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website's sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries.

It has come to my attention that some persons and/or entities have been collecting funds, thinly veiled as my “Defense Fund” or "Legal Fund". I cannot attest to the validity of these other websites as I have not received any funds collected, intended to support my family and I through this trying, tragic time.

I have created a Paypal account solely linked on this website as I would like to provide an avenue to thank my supporters personally and ensure that any funds provided are used only for living expenses and legal defense, in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment. I will also personally, maintain accountability of all funds received. I reassure you, every donation is appreciated.

While the site appears to be a work in progress, Zimmerman has managed to put up a few tabs. One tab is labeled 'My Race' while another is labeled 'The Facts'. Now of course when you click on the 'My Race' tab you only get a quote from Thomas Paine:

"The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion." - Thomas Paine

While writing this post there have been 173 visits to the site, but I'm sure that number is going to grow exponentially by the end of the day.
