I wasn't aware that the N-word, in any form, was acceptable.
According to "star witness" Rachel Jeantel, the N-word when said with an "a" rather than "er" is not a racist word.
It means "any kind of male."
Jeantel explains the usage to Piers Morgan.
I don't think so.
I'm not comfortable with that.
Maybe Obama, the alleged post-racial president, should tell us if it's OK. Barack "let me be clear" Obama should clarify. Jay Carney could pass along Obama's ruling.
Confused about "cracka" and "cracker."
Here's more from Jeantel.
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.So a "cracka" is someone acting like "they're police."
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?”
It's has nothing to do with race.
