Here's some "kindergarten logic" for you. Seems pretty basic, for sure.
A - Some homicides are accidents
B - Accidental homicides can be second degree murders
C - Therefore, some homicides are murders.

There is no provision for accidents in there, despite the waffling you will now attempt, as is your MO.
An accidental homicide can be murder.
1. a person of ordinary judgment would know is reasonably certain to kill or do serious bodily injury to another, and
2. is done from ill will, hatred, spite, or an evil intent, and
3. is of such a nature that the act itself indicates an indifference to human life.
You are conflating manslaughter and negligent homicide with murder.
Sorry, you're wrong.
So, now about your bigotry...

and that our views on how this trial will go reflect that.

If I batter you and you die as a result, that's not an accident even if I only wanted to maim you.
I'll also point out that you said this case is an "accidental murder," your argument was never "some homicides are murders", you goalpost moving idiot.
Your argument was this case is "accidental murder", that's pretty much an oxymoron. (Barring a few very specific situations of course, but those are irrelevant here.)
An accidental homicide is called manslaughter.
(1) The killing of a human being by the act, procurement, or culpable negligence of another, without lawful justification according to the provisions of chapter 776 and in cases in which such killing shall not be excusable homicide or murder, according to the provisions of this chapter, is manslaughter, a felony of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.

As Cheng pointed in, specifically in Florida the statute is worded such that "aggravating a situation" is due to "ill will, hatred, spite, or an evil intent".
Zimmerman evil? I don't think so. Racial hatred? Doubtful.
Spite? Maybe. Was he projecting his anger at recently being burglarized himself onto strangers in his neighborhood, while armed? Maybe.
Did an innocent kid he followed end up dead? Definitely.
