bombshell interview with an anonymous Zimmerman trial juror tonight with an exclusive chat with the witness everyone has been waiting to hear from since the verdict came down: Trayvon Martins friend Rachel Jeantel.
Jeantel, who created a media firestorm with her highly-polarizing testimony towards the beginning of the trial, appeared on Piers Morgan Live alongside her attorney. She described her reaction to Zimmermans acquittal as disappointed, upset and angry and called the jurys assessment of what happened just B.S.
Asked about what Trayvon Martin was like as a friend, Jeantel described him as a calm, chill, loving person and said she never saw him get aggressive or lose his temper. She said that the defenses attempts to portray Martin as a thug were unfounded and defended his relatively mild drug use. Weed dont make him go crazy, she said, it just makes him go hungry.
Jeantel also responded to the massive mockery she received in social media for the way she speaks, explaining that she was born with an under-bite that has made it difficult for her to speak clearly. When Morgan asked if shed been bullied for her condition, she simply responded, Look at me, to laughter from the studio audience.
Morgan attempted to get Jeantel to offer her opinion of defense attorney Don West, who many claimed was condescending towards her when she was on the stand. Jeantel shook her head, declining to say anything bad about the man given her Christian upbringing.
In the second part of his interview with Jeantel, Morgan turned to the creepy-ass cracker comment she made and the major impact it had on the tenor of the case. She explained that the term is actually spelled cracka and defined it as people who are acting like theyre police. She said that if Zimmerman had calmly approached Martin and introduced himself, her friend would have politely said what he was doing there and nothing more would have happened.
Unlike the juror, Jeantel did think Zimmerman was racially motivated. It was racial, she said. Lets be honest, racial. If Trayvon was white and he had a hoodie on, would that happen? She said she had a feeling it was going to be not guilty not because of the racial makeup of the jury, but because of the way the testimony went.
Jeantel insisted that Martin was creeped out and believed Zimmerman was following him, even worrying that he might be a rapist. She asked, For every boy or every man whos not that kind of way, seeing a grown man following them, would they be creeped out?
Has the lovely Rachel received an offer from the Playboy Mag yet? Goodness gracious, not for doing what you women think, no, I mean for writing an article, since intellectually oriented articles are why we keep our subscriptions up to date!
“Honey Boo Boo look out.”
I’ll you one thing, “Honey Boo Boo” has really gone down hill lately.
+1 for Sharknado. It was stupid and I loved it.
The Greek word which was chosen to express this mysterious resemblance bears so close an affinity to the orthodox symbol, that the profane of every age have derided the furious contests which the difference of a single diphthong excited between the Homoousians and the Homoiousians.
Sorry, couldn't help thinking of it!
This was a new low for even Piers Morgan —
Rachel's orthodontic braces were gleaming brighter than her intellect tonight.
Your tax dollars at work.
Sure sounds riveting.
I work with plenty of A-A’s. She’s right about the nigga-nigger difference. The way nigga is used today is as a synonym for ‘guy’.
However, her ‘cracka’ explanation is pure unadulterated b.s.
She was on there to deliver the scheme team message — Trayvon was a calm and peaceable boy who would never get into a fight,
You have just stated the reason this happened in a nutshell.
TM didn’t ever dream that that creepy assed cracker was carrying.
This creature is all so typical of ghetto trash. Ignorant ,vile, immoral and self -centered.
How many children did she breed?
when she gradumacates what African hair braid salon she be workin’s at?
>> MORGAN: Theres no e-r, right?
ROFL... that’s insane.
And, *why* is *this*? Florida has had concealed carry *all* of Trayvon Martin's lifetime. If he didn't think of that possibility, he darned well should have...
That was my first take.
If Maya had a daughter, she would look just like Rachel.
“actually spelled cracka and defined it as people who are acting like theyre police.
Nahhh...none of this was coached or scripted in any way/SARC
