Rachel Jeantel explains to Piers Morgan the subtleties between ‘Nigger’ and ‘Nigga’ (VIDEO)

Rachel Jeantel, friend of Trayvon Martin and Witness #8 in the George Zimmerman murder trial, appeared on Piers Morgan last night. As seen in the video above Jeantel breaks down the difference between the word ‘Nigger’ and ‘Nigga’ and what they mean to her as a young African American teenager, as well as what the terms mean in context to the Zimmerman trial.

To Jeantel, ‘Nigga’ is not a racist word, it is a term that can be used to describe any male of any race. ‘Nigger’ on the other hand is racist. Jeantel told Morgan that she wished she used ‘Nigga’ while testifying in the Zimmerman trial as to put in context her use of the term ‘Creepy Ass Craka’.
