This is awkward - according to Trayvon Martin's friend Rachel Jeantel, Martin may have attacked George Zimmerman because he thought Zimmerman was a "gay rapist". Jeantel, who was on the phone with Martin when the incident occurred, told CNN's Piers Morgan last night that Trayvon was afraid of being raped by "creepy ass cracker" Zimmerman:
She explained to CNN's Piers Morgan how she warned her childhood friend that Zimmerman -- could be a gay rapist!
MORGAN: You felt that there was no doubt in your mind from what Trayvon was telling you on the phone about the creepy ass cracka and so on, that he absolutely believed that George Zimmerman, this man, you didn't know who he was at the time, but this man, was pursuing him?
JEANTEL: Yes.Well, what a conundrum. Zimmerman, who we are led to believe killed Martin because of racism, was apparently attacked by a homophobe. It's the ultimate liberal dilemma - hate crimes for everyone!
MORGAN: And he was freaked out by it?
JEANTEL: Yes. Definitely after I say may be a rapist, for every boy, for every man, every -- who's not that kind of way, seeing a grown man following them, would they be creep out?
"And people need to understand, he didn't want that creepy ass cracker going to his father or girlfriend's house to go get -- mind you, his little brother was there. You know -- now, mind you, I told you -- I told Trayvon it might have been a rapist."
