Piers Morgan Conducts Riveting Interview With Trayvon Martinís Friend, Witness Rachel Jeantel
http://www.mediaite.com/ ^

Posted on 07/15/2013 7:29:28 PM PDT by marthemaria

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 Martin‘s 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 Zimmerman’s acquittal as “disappointed, upset and angry” and called the jury’s 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 defense’s attempts to portray Martin as a “thug” were unfounded and defended his relatively mild drug use. “Weed don’t 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 she’d 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 they’re 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. “Let’s 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 who’s not that kind of way, seeing a grown man following them, would they be creeped out?”

This girl actually said that the jury did not know what a bashing was. In "her" neigbourhood the treatment zimmerman got would only be a little "whoop ass" or something. She also talked about the difference between nigga and nigger.

It was funny to see the juror go on Anderson Cooper and say she was sorry for Jeantel’s education. THE GIRLS 19 AND A JUNIOR THIS YEAR! If she flunks out one class, she can’t finish HS because she’ll graduate after 21.

Because in the hood, giving a beat down or a whoop-ass gets you street cred. And you can’t go around letting creepy ass crackers walk around the neighborhood without a good beat down to show them who’s the boss.

To bad for TM that GZ had the ability to defend himself.

PIERS MORGAN: Let’s talk about ‘creepy ass cracka.’ People have said that that is a phrase used by black people, cracka, to describe a white person. Is that true?

JEANTEL: No! Like I said —

MORGAN: How do you spell it, first of all?

JEANTEL: Cracka.

MORGAN: There’s no ‘e-r,’ right?

JEANTEL: No, it’s an ‘a’ at the end.

MORGAN: C-r-a-c-k-a.

JEANTEL: Yeah. And that’s a person who act like they’re a police [officer], who, like a security guard who acting like — that’s what I said to them. Trayvon said creepy ass cracka.

MORGAN: It means he thought it was a police or a security guard?

JEANTEL: Yeah, he acting like the police. And then he keep telling me that the man is still watching him. So, if it was a security guard or a policeman, they would come up to Trayvon and say, ‘Do you have a problem? Do you need help?’ You know, like normal people.

So T. suspected GZ was security or something and still attacked him.

Well huh, the LGBT are demanding justice for Trayvon. I was suprised to find out Trayvon was homosexual. I guess that’s where all that rape stuff came from.

Exactly, and the juror that was on AC called it when she said TM was angry. The juror knew who initiated everything.
ALl the dumb libtards screaming for poor Trayvon will now say after hearing this big dummy saying this on TV?

We all know this is black culture now, beating people down for just any little slight, real or imagined.
Whitey is just suppose to take it, I guess.

I’m convinced that on one point Jeantel is wrong, and that is that GZ would have done the same thing if it had been a white boy wearing a hoodie, and walking about like he was casing houses. She is also lying about what cracker or cracka’ means. Had Trayvon thought GZ was a cop, he would have hurried home. On the other point, that Trayvon might have thought GZ was queer and cruising, she might be right, but that doesn’t excuse what he did.

I appreciate you watching the interview, so some of us don’t have to.

Not to change the subject, but I was watching a Show about the history of the Concorde Passenger Jet.

They interviewed some Concorde Frequent Fliers, Actors, Business People and yes, Poets. Lo and behold there is Maya Angelo’s smiling face, talking about how special it is to be one of the privileged people flying to and fro at twice the speed of sound.

Just another poor beaten down Black Woman like Oprah. What a phony baloney sack of excrement.

Now, back to the subject at hand.
