Ministry of Irony: Creepy Assed Crackas Are Racist Edition

Start at 7:15

UPDATE By DMartyr: In the George Zimmerman case, the State's star witness describes conversation she had with Trayvon Martin the night he was shot:

The prosecution asked Rachel Jeantel what Trayvon Martin was complaining to her about on the phone, as he walked home.

"That a man just kept watching him," she replied.

After the judge overruled a defense objection, the prosecutor continued, "Did you say anything back to him or did he say anything back to you?"

"Yes," Jeantel replied. "I asked him how the man looked like. He just told me the man the man looked creepy."

"He said the man looked creepy?" the prosecutor asked.

"Creepy, white, kill-my-neighbors cracker," Jeantel replied, and when asked to repeat her testimony a few times, added, "He looked like a creepy ass cracker."

"He told me the man was looking at him," she added, "so I had to think it might have been a rapist. Might have been a rapist."

Jeantel's testimony bogged down for several minutes because the defense and the court reporter were having trouble understanding her testimony.

This would be hilarious if one young man wasn't dead and the other fighting for his freedom.

BTW, for anyone following this trial, Legal Insurrection has some great daily summaries from a lawyer's perspective.
