A friend of Trayvon Martin’s refused to characterize the term “creepy-ass cracker” as racial or offensive during her testimony in the George Zimmerman murder trial Thursday.
Rachel Jeantel, who was on the phone with the Florida teenager moments before he was fatally shot, returned to the witness stand for the second day. Defense attorney Don West asked Jeantel what made her think the encounter between Zimmerman and Martin was racial. Jeantel testified that Martin told her on the phone that a “creepy-ass cracker” was following him — but said she doesn’t think the term alone is racial.
