Also I submit that if Travyon was not black, Zimmerman wouldn't have called nor followed after him and shot him. There was a pattern in the calls Zimmerman was placing before the shooting. He had placed multiple calls to report "black men" in the neighborhood because he felt they fit the description of burglars. So is Travyon's race a reason for the shooting happening, I think so yes.
