The woman they say Trayvon was talking to prior to the altercation with Zimmerman says Trayvon referred to George as a "cracker". Not only is that racist but Zimmerman doesn’t even look white.
She also admits that using the word "cracker" is quite common.
Rachel Jeantel, who was on the phone with the Florida teenager moments before he was fatally shot, returned to the witness stand for the second day. Defense attorney Don West asked Jeantel what made her think the encounter between Zimmerman and Martin was racial. Jeantel testified that Martin told her on the phone that a “creepy-ass cracker” was following him — but said she doesn’t think the term alone is racial.
