Rachel Jeantel Tells Piers Morgan She Wishes She Would Have Dropped The ‘N-Word’ On The Stand [Video]
Jeantel described her reaction to Zimmerman’s acquittal as “disappointed, upset and angry.” She described Trayvon as a “calm, chill, loving person,” adding that she never saw him get “aggressive” or “lose his temper.” She also defended his relatively mild drug use, saying, “Weed don’t make him go crazy. It just makes him go hungry.”
She also 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.
Piers Morgan asked Rachel Jeantel if there was anything she wished she’d said on the stand. Jeantel answered with one word: “Nigga,” and explained that “the whole world say it’s a racist word” but the version that Martin had used in reference to Zimmerman is spelled “n-i-g-g-a” which doesn’t mean what most people think it means.
