Creepy Ass Cracka – Not the final post on the George Zimmerman case
After a lot of back and forth with friends over the last week a few things are notable.
But first I have to say that in March of 2012 I came out in support of Zimmerman getting arrested and charged, based on all of the media hype. They really made it sound like Zimmerman pulled a racist murder on a young boy, displaying pictures of Trayvon Martin when he was a pre-teen and such, and cutting and clipping the 911 call to make it sound as if there was some racist insults being slung at Trayvon. I posted for a week straight about this and wore my hoodie and supported the Martin family.
But in the last week I have learned some disturbing details about this case that made me change my mind.
A few things that should be known, since I constantly hear about the “right wing white man agenda” constantly regarding this case.
- George Zimmerman was as white as Bob Marley. George Zimmerman’s father was white, but his mother was Afro-Peruvian.
- George Zimmerman was not a republican or a right winger, he was a registered democrat
- It is said that George Zimmerman stood up for a man in the same town who’s civil rights were violated in a racial way, and George Zimmerman protested this and passed out flyers about this in 2010
So beyond all of the cultural technicalities, I have already addressed the scientific technicalities in my previous post.
But the last thing that I found in this case. Just as of today July 16th 2013. Is this ‘star witness’ who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin during this whole incident. She claims that what motivated Trayvon Martin to freak out was that as he said “he is being followed by a creepy ass cracka”.

Here more of her testimony here about the racial slurs that Trayvon Martin used:
So Trayvon Martin didn’t like the neighborhood watch captain to be watching him as he is going in and out of people’s back yards at night. And when Zimmerman is on the phone and the dispatcher asks for Martin’s location, and Zimmerman gets out of his car to find the street sign or landmark, and the dispatcher says “are you following him” and Zimmerman says “ya”, the dispatcher responds “we don’t need you to do that”. So Zimmerman starts heading back to his car and he got jumped. Well during that conversation that Zimmerman was having with the police dispatch, Martin is busy talking to his friend on the phone, while trespassing in someone else’s backyard and the conversation is marked with racist slurs about Zimmerman’s racial identity as Trayvon Martin describes Zimmerman as a “creepy ass cracka”.
Now when I bring this up to my facebook acquaintances who have made this all about “racial profiling” for months and months. They ignore it, and instead call me a racist?!
I find this hilarious, especially when they identify this as some “right wing conspiracy against the black man”. As I noted earlier, Zimmerman was also black (Afro-Peruvian), and he was a registered democrat.
People are so desperate for more racism it seems. (Barf)
