Star Prosecution Witness To
Zimmerman’s Lawyer: My Culture
Regularly Calls White People ‘Crackers’

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/27/2013 3:13:23 PM

As #CrackerGate seemingly came to a close during today’s edition of the George Zimmerman murder trial, star witness Rachel Jeantel told the defense lawyer during cross-examination that it is the norm within her local community to call white people “crackers.” The derogatory term for white people had become a focus of the Zimmerman defense team after Jeantel told the court on Wednesday that the late Trayvon Martin had referred to the defendant as a “creepy-ass cracker” shortly before his own death. Defense lawyer Don West continually grilled Jeantel over various questions related to Martin’s use of the word, ultimately culminating

Wow! The evidence of racism in this trial is against Trayvon, not Zimmerman. Why did the prosecution put this pathetic woman on the stand? Don´t they have anything better than this?

They put her on the stand because she is all they got.

The entire purpose of this prosecution and the inevitable acquittal by a mostly white jury is to keep lo info black voters like the star witness riled up to vote Democrat.

No prosecutor who wanted to win would put a Neanderthal like this on the stand.
Maybe this is how he responds to political pressure from outsiders.

In her comments about "crackers" and the "N" word Rachel told the truth, anyone who does not believe that is ignorant of contemporary American black ghetto culture.

I´m watching full coverage of this trial. I actually felt sorry for Rachel this morning when she had to admit that she can´t read, or write, cursive. She is 19, and will be a Senior in high school next fall. This is sad!

I think the defense did a great job punching holes in the prosecution´s case. The JUDGE did everything in her power to keep them from doing that. Very obvious that the judge either is afraid for her life, or in the pocket of the State!

The most stunning to everyone, including the legal commentators, was the fact that the first time Rachel was interviewed by the State, she was interviewed in the HOME OF Trayvon´s MOTHER. The mother sat next to her during the whole interview. Some think this will be grounds for a retrial. ALL of the attorneys interviewed said they had NEVER heard of anyone ever allowed to do this! Talk about BIAS!

Of all of the lies that Rachel/Dee-Dee has told --and they are numerous, the biggest of all was when the Defense attorney pointed out the difference in her attitude today in contrast to yesterday; he asked her if anyone had talked to her last night, and she answered --in her demur, respectful way, "No, sir."

You can bet she was not only talked to, but she was talked to by more than one person, and I can guarantee you, it wasn´t pretty.

She couldn´t fog a mirror in a 4x4 bathroom, so there should be no worry about notoriety from the trial keeping her from a MacArthur grant or Turing Prize.

#7: For the most part, you could delete "ghetto" from your observation.

#8: Considering her "educational accomplishments," her school district might as well take $20 bills from the taxpayers and dump them on a bonfire as keep Jeantel in the classroom.

Speaking of which... one must wonder if, indeed, the left tail of a certain Bell curve might violate the requirement for a left limit of zero. Can a person owe IQ points? Or is that question answered [affirmatively] in the asking?

In spite of this I think Zimmerman will not walk. There is too much fear of mob violence and ballot box backlash to let that happen.

He´ll get convicted of manslaughter or reckless endangerment or something. Anything to keep the riots to a manageable level.

#15: No kidding. If they required college students aspiring to take up the teaching profession to sit and observe in a government school for six weeks, there wouldn´t be any more teachers after the current crop retired.

As far how this woman is perceived by the jurors, does anyone really think that the all-female jurists believe that she is being truthful? Tough crowd to convince, IMO. She´d have better luck with male jurors, but I´m sure the women jurists are more attune to the veracity of her testimony.

What kind of "cracker" is a "graham cracker"?

What kind of "cracker" is an "oyster cracker"?

What kind of "cracker" is a "saltine cracker"?

What kind of "cracker" is a "creepy-ass cracker"?

In other words... her "culture" regularly call white people a derogatory term.

By the way - - the word "cracker" in this context has nothing to do with a nibbly snack.

It references the cracking of a whip - - and the person who causes it.

Florida natives are referred to as ´crackers´ because they cracked a whip when they drove their cattle, but I don´t think TM and Ms. Jeantel were referring to that kind of ´cracker.´

Also, she said she heard ´get off ...´ a comment by one watching the trial said the black urban dictionary or something said ´get off the gate´ means go fight. Wonder if she didn´t hear the rest of what TM said. Jack Cashill did an excellent article on TM´ last hour maybe back in March. I saw it referenced today and actually re-read it. Worth a read.

Remember the classic SNL word association sketch with Richard Pryor and Chevy Chase? This video was taken with a picture phone and the picture quality is minimal, but the words are comprehensible. In this day of rigidly enforced P.C., I doubt if such a skit could be done. "Dog?" "Tree."

Bingo, #32. That was the entire point of the attorney asking the question: to make sure the difference in her demeanor was not lost on the jury.

Of course she was not going to admit to being "talked to."

And I can almost agree with the poster who said in some respects, he almost felt pity for her.

Why, I think if I actually heard a black person utter the term "cracker", well, I just think I´d surely drop dead right there on the spot. Racial epithets are apparently that powerful.

I wonder when we will be forbidden to even say "the n word"? Who, by the way, hears someone say "the n word" and doesn´t fill in the rest of the word in their mind?

Might as well say it and stop all the nonsense. Words do not damage anyone who isn´t looking to be damaged.

The only reason this trial is happening is to try to keep racial peace. But it never works. No matter what the evidence shows, no matter how rancid the prosecution´s case, the ghetto gonna explode if Z walks. Innocence doesn´t matter, only racial guilt, and racial guilt says the white/whitish person is always wrong even if right.

The 16 year old girlfriend who wasn´t 16 also not his girlfriend probably wasn´t talking to Martin at the time either.She seems like a plant after the act.
When I was a little girl the black community designated they be called Negros---meaning black. They demeaned that by calling their own people N-words.
How do we eliminate all the racial and ethnic labels? Simple Drop all of them and use only one --- Americans. No past nationality added.
This minority group will not do that because their politicos glean too much unearned money pushing them.
Black persons are being used.

I know it´s late in this thread but "Ass Cracker", as Rachel actually stated, means "pervert in my culture." If you listed to her testimony the first day she and Travon were talking about this Creepy, Ass Cracker who was maybe a rapist. This made absolutely no sense until her statement about "Ass Cracker" meaning pervert.

Check out the urban dictionary and Rachel´s testimony, reliably posted by YouTube´s "thecount"

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said.

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department!

More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen.

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the
