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?”

Is that the same Savage that thought Zimmerman was guilty of Murder, or did he have some sort of epifphamy?

It means he thought it was a police or a security guard?
JEANTEL: Yeah,

Sing it, Jeantel. You have a lot of illuminating things to say. Keep talking Jeantel.

"On the other point, that Trayvon might have thought GZ was queer and cruising, she might be right"

I think that's what she's saying. That Martin thought Zimmerman was a gay stalker, so Martin attacked him. Wonder how that will play with the gays. Either way, Martin initiated the physical confrontation and paid the price.

WOW!

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?”

I think I hear Democrat homosexual heads exploding.

What was her claim? That the C.A.C. dragged Tray into a fistfight? Did the wet grass tell her that? Why won’t she ask herself, why didn’t Tray speak “politely” to the C.A.C instead of launching into a slugfest?

I know of people who have “Christian upbringing” and yet are quite godless. Some were too close to me for comfort.

"In "her" neigbourhood the treatment zimmerman got would only be a little "whoop ass" or something. "

So she admitted that Trayvon was beating on Zimmerman.

Riveting was not the word that came to mind. For him to get into a discussion about the differences between the derogatory word and the accepted word showed me that he is not an intellectual. Go and sell your crap in England.

What needs to be shouted from the rooftops is that the root of all this is unmarried teenagers (black or white) having babies.

Huge numbers (I believe 70%) of little black babies are born into dire circumstances....promoted and supported by liberalism. This makes for a very angry youth.

I’d be angry too. I’d be angry at an absent irresponsible “father” and a young, lost mother. Both the angry young black man and the irresponsible young mother are the product of the absence of a good, Godly father, but it’s easier to blame the white man than blame your own “culture”.

That’s the root of the problem.
