The juror didn't take "cracka" as a racial slur but an indication of "the type of life that they live ... and the environment they're living in."
"A lot of the times she was using phrases I have never heard before," the juror said.
She did not find Jeantel credible, the juror said, but "I felt very sorry for her. ... I think she felt inadequate toward everyone because of her education and communication skills."
When Piers Morgan played that clip for Jeantel, the teen said she felt upset and also misunderstood. She said she has a speech impediment due to an underbite. And her vocabulary is odd only to older people, she said.
The jurors, she said, are "old-school people. We (are) in a new school, our generation, my generation."
Perhaps they judged her as uneducated, Jeantel said, but she said she felt criticized for being "too honest."
Her generation uses "cracka" and even a variation of the N-word as a non-racial term for any man, she said.
"The jury's so shocked what I said, and they're acting like the generation we got now don't say that."
Impressions of Zimmerman
Not surprisingly, they came to vastly different conclusions about the defendant.
"I think George Zimmerman is a man whose heart was in the right place but just got displaced by the vandalism in the neighborhoods, and wanting to catch these people so badly that he went above and beyond what he really should have done," the juror said.
Jeantel called Zimmerman "scary" and branded him "weak" for declining to testify at his trial.
"If you were a real man, you would've stand on that stage and tell what happened," she said.
