Hey, Rachel: I’m Pretty Certain “Creepy Ass Cracker” is a Racial Slur
Townhall.com ^ | June 30, 2013 | Doug Giles

Posted on 06/30/2013 8:38:06 AM PDT by Kaslin

After Tuesday’s testimony in the George Zimmerman trial by star witness Rachel Jeantel some of my white devil, honky, gringo, pasty skin, mackerel snatchin’, Caucasian buddies got all up in arms about Rachel Jeantel stating that “creepy ass cracker” is not a racial slur.

First of all, Rachel, and I hate to break it to you, sister -- and I use that word “sister” in the strictest biblical sense of the word -- but “creepy ass cracker” does, historically, denote derision towards the pigmentally challenged of this world.

By pointing this out to you, I do not mean to demean or berate you. It’s just a friendly FYI I’m putting out there for you to consider, for future reference, because it does offend some of my tribe’s more genteel members.

That said, it really doesn’t offend me. Matter of fact, I prefer cheeky ass cracker to creepy ass cracker as the former borrows capital from British slang and merges it with an 18th century Floridian colloquialism, making it at least a quasi-compliment for this 21st century, brutish wordsmith; while the latter denotes a middle-aged white dude who comments way too much on a cute teenage girl’s Facebook page. Or a teenage boy’s Facebook page, for that matter. But I digress …

Another thing that got a lot of my WASPY buddies miffed by your testimony last week was the fact that the media isn’t Paula Dean-ing you for your use of an obvious racial epithet. To that I would suggest just forgiving them if they tweeted you something untoward, as some of my buddies are arriving a little late to the party and it’s just now dawning on them that the media is unsympathetic to their genome’s plight.

Thirdly, I’d watch it calling someone or something “retarded.” A lot of folks, especially those with special needs friends and family members, take umbrage to that phraseology. It’s just a suggestion to consider. Seriously.

Another thing to ponder if you happen to get called to the stand again, is to get your stories straight while you’re giving testimony or it could turn out better for the defense than the prosecution.

And finally, I know you didn’t ask for this type of spotlight to bear down on you but, if I were you, I would really, really dial down on the rude answers and the obtuse facial expressions, as it sure didn’t look great on television, and at the end of the day, we all have to get along.

I feel sorry for George Zimmerman.

This trial is no longer about him.

It's about this girl. I can't believe we took the bait.

What am I saying. Of COURSE I believe we took the bait.

Rachel Jeantel is the reason Trayvon Martin is dead, and she knows it.

She was on the phone talking trash to Trayvon about the “creepy-ass cracker rapist” following him and how if he was a real gangster he’d give the cracker a beatdown he’d never forget.

When Trayvon was killed because of her she went dark until Benjamin Crump hunted her down and gave her a script to follow.

Those words alone, “creepy ass cracker”, tell us all we need to know about this trial. It IS all about race, and the prosecution’s star “witness” said as much.

This trial is not about self-defense at all, but about getting whitey. even if whitey isn’t so white after all.

Another thing that came out in the trail is she is 19 years old and entering her senior year in high school. I would have to say she has some serious learning disabilites. I will leave it at that.

The court should subpoena NSA to retrieve the complete phone call between Rachel Jeantel and Trayvon. We know they have it. They record everything.

mackerel snatchin’ ???...Had to look that one up. My research shows that’s a slur for Catholics (something from the 1800’s to do with the fish on Friday thing), and not specifically just for white bread, mayonnaise, honky ass crackers. Funny thing about “whitey” slurs in that they don’t seem to have much effect on white people.

I am in full agreement with your theory. I think donut-neck spent all that time on the phone with St. Skittles urging him to “Beat that creepy-ass cracka dead.” Her “friend” is dead instead, 100% because of her.

And she’d do it again in a heartbeat. Heck, I’m sure she’s trying to figure out how to get Don West killed right now. I have a feeling that we’ll be hearing more about this freak in the years ahead.

CAC is street slang for homosexual men. She followed it up with the suggestion Z might rape TM and to RUN! The fact TM is a homophobe is motive for the beat down

Shame the defense didn’t follow through on it!

It’s not just about race. It’s about gay-bashing. Trayvon suspected Zimmerman may have been stalking him for homosexual reasons. Thus the description as “creepy-ass cracker”, “pussy-ass cracker”, and “rapist”. He possibly used other, more specific anti-gay descriptions that Jeantel was coached not to reveal.

Trayvon Martin was likely a gay-basher who decided to put a beat-down, MMA-style, on someone he perceived to be gay.

What would the lefties think if little Trayvon turned out to be the antithesis of their innocent little boy?

I have a liberal relative who believes that a neighborhood watch volunteer has no right to look too closely at (or report) a suspicious character in the neighborhood, but the government has every right to spy on all Americans and our allies, without limitations of any kind. And he’s serious.

After centuries of having sticks, stones and more thrown at them, Whites understand that while those things can break their bones, words will never hurt them. I think there may be a big cultural difference at work as well: One culture is prone to exhibit violence at the drop of a hat. The second culture takes considerably longer, but will eventually exhibit something for the benefit of the first.

No worries - this was never about George Zimmerman. Barry Soetoro, lying, thieving, traitor that he is, has told the truth about one and only one thing: Fundamental Change of America. This trial is all about ramping it up. All along the PINO has been provoking a Race War - When Zimmerman is found not guilty, the Media traitors and Hollywood idiots like Chris Rock and Spike Lee, will be ready to roll — the Dogs of War will be unleashed, and 1968 will look like child’s play. I hope all of us white cracker asses are ready because this will definitely be local.

IMOP and I am sure manny others;
Cracker spewed by a black is the equivilant to Nigger being spewed by a white.
Only the race-baiters that spun this case as W on B rasism at the start and now see it was B on W rasism would and now disagree.
Sucks to be them.
Martin and Geantel have and had a dislike for whites and that was proven by Geantels testimony and demeanor.
Its the “Crackers” fault they are where they are in society, although Geantel has an 11th grade education going into 12 and knows how but refuses to speak any thing close to proper english and or at least fake it when needed.
She is a perfect example of why so many blacks are stuck in poverty.
Black or white,no business unless forced, would hire Rachel.
And that will be everyone else’s fault.

I still feel Geantel egged Martin on which is the reason for her testifiable guilt about the shooting.

I was debating some libs last night on Facebook, and it just absolutely astounds the amount of brainless morons out there, it’s incredible. It’s like we are going through some sort of moron apocalypse.

I was telling them one witness testified the other day seeing Trayvon on top of Zimmerman pounding him, and if they look at the police tape made immediately after the shooting (this one..)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=PX1sxARNq_c

Zimmerman describes a man coming out while Trayvon was pounding him and screaming for this guy to help him.

And here is THAT guy, John Good, testifying about it!

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_162-57591520-504083/george-zimmerman-trial-neighbor-testifies-trayvon-martin-was-straddling-zimmerman-moments-before-fatal-gunshot/

Oh no no no they say, that is all lies. One woman in particular telling me there are 4 witnesses who saw ZIMMERMAN beating Trayvon! What? Come again?

This is fascinating to me because it explains why we also have so many morons in office including the King moron from Kenya. Are there *that* many idiots in this country? Do they honestly believe Zimmerman broke his own nose? Cracked his own head against the curb? Can they watch that tape and in all good honesty believe Zimmerman is not credible? It’s just unreal, I really don’t understand it. Is it the tech? All the mobile phones, computers, video games that are frying peoples brains where they can’t grasp logic?

As long as the ‘spot light’ is on Ms. Jeantel is she the poster gal for Welfare, single parent, government housing, Food stamp, disability, public school failure of America? Liberal policies have kept this person on the Reverends Al Sharpton/Jessie Jackson Democrat Plantation...we saw hundreds if not thousands of her ilk stranded in NO during Katrina...is this what will happen to our new amnesty citizens so they will vote for a Democrat? Thank you Ms. Jeantel for your display of “the hyphenated American”.

I can't believe someone thinks impeaching this truthless witless was "taking bait" in a game of fish. A man's whole future is at stake, and that means lying witnesses against him must be discredited.

I was wondering, since she defamed Zimmerman as a “creepy-ass cracker”, she has obviously changed the ground rules. Can we now refer to her as a “lying-ass N-word”. (And no, I mean the word that the silly minced oath ‘N-word’ actually stands for.)

Just ask your liberal relative to look at this scenario.

GZ is in his truck going to the store, he sees a stranger loitering around in the rain. GZ watches for a minute, and decides it is no big deal and goes about his business. The next morning a neighbor doesn’t show up for work, can’t be reached and the police enter the home. Several bodies are found, and the house has been ransacked. The first question to GZ would be why didn’t you do more, you were the neighborhood watch guy.

This case against Zimmerman was tainted from the beginning, when Obama inserted himself into the case, totally impairing and undermining this case.

Why in sam hell would a President of the United States inject himself into a domestic criminal case before the case was ever tried? This is f’ning outrageous.

They would do what they always do:

2. “Racist!”
3. Double-Speak that non-violent people are violent aggressors and violent people are non-violent victims
4. Interpretation really depends on context, culture, history

etc.

“Can they watch that tape and in all good honesty believe”

LIEberals and DemonRATs don't have the ability to watch and HONESTLY believe anything. They have an agenda, they have talking points, and above all else, they are never going to allow any tidbit of evidence to enter their pea brains that runs counter to what they've been told.

He’s convinced that GZ went looking for a black person to confront. Your hypothetical situation is too close to reality for him to take it seriously.

I’ve tried discussing things with him in the past, but it’s like mud wrestling with a pig. He makes up his own “facts” and refuses to acknowledge any facts. So when he tried to goad me into an argument about this, I knew he wouldn’t be receptive to any facts, and I just gave him my best “you’re a moron” look, and left it at that.
