Trayvon Martin was standing his ground too

In reference to the George Zimmerman trial, please explain why the trial was not a question of did Trayvon Martin try to protect himself against a man with a gun? Rather the focus was on whether the man with the gun had to protect himself against an unarmed black child.

As a white man I question what I would have done if I was in a position of being followed by a black man up and down the streets in the same situation.

I believe after a time I would have to confront the man and maybe even think about if I would have to resort to violence.

Why does the "Stand Your Ground" rule only apply to the one with the gun?
