Colbert Reacts To George Zimmerman Verdict: Racial Inequality 'Is Now A Tie' (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert returned from vacation Monday night just in time to react to the news that George Zimmerman was found "not guilty" of murdering Trayvon Martin.

"Folks, this is a victory for the rule of law... In that, Florida apparently no longer has rules or laws," Colbert joked.

To better understand how the jury came to the verdict, Colbert turned to Fox News' Geraldo Rivera for some mind-boggling analysis.

Watch the clip above to hear Colbert's full reaction, plus his theory that the Zimmerman verdict doesn't prove there is racial inequality in America but in fact, "It is now a tie."
